Busy for a reason

Get there before midday if you don't want to queue. Really fresh sashimi, good prices. The tempura prawns are excellent.

Outstanding sushi and other dishes, I go here at least once a week. Be prepared to wait in line but it moves fast. It's a small place so I usually just take take away. Very affordable too. Lots of vegetarian options.

The lobster sushi roll was my favourite! A good variety of sushi rolls to choose from, it was cheap and delicious.

Heard a lot of good reports of this place that I had to try it out. There was a queue of about 10 people even though it was almost 2pm. Had already had a lunch but decided to order the two sushi combo plus miso for $5. You had a choice of any sushi roll and they even cut it... More

Not only is it most likely the best value lunch in Melbourne - it's possibly the best sushi in Melbourne too. Big call I know but it really is. $5 for 2 rolls and a miso that's super tasty and super fresh - can't beat that! I've been coming here for a few years now - walk across town for... More

Two rolls (with a huge range) plus a tasty miso soup all for $5.00! Make sure you have 10 mins to line up because it always goes out down the laneway but the line is there because everyone knows its delicious, so worth the wait.

A busy restaurant and a range of positive reviews brought me in for a quick lunch but I was very let down my the meal. I had a vegetable tempura bento box of which the tempura, rather than nice generously cut pieces of vegetable in a light tempura batter, was a mix of grated veg pressed together in a stodgy... More

This place is a bit Soup Nazi-esque --- the queue is very formal, the staff don't smile and you'd better know what you want when you get there (or you'll annoy both the staff and the other patrons!). It's all totally worth it though as the sushi rolls are some of the best and cheapest in the city. You can't... More

This is one of the best I have come across so far for a quick and cheap sushi lunch. The sushi quality is by far the best for $2.50+ per sushi roll range restaurant/bar. Beautifully done, the salmon rolls that I had is properly prepared with even salmon in the whole roll. If dine in (NB: limited seats and crowded),... More

Sushi Monger offer great deals for lunch, there's always a queue to get in the tiny doorway but well worth the wait!! Who can go past $5 for two sushi rolls and a Miso soup and its delicious :)
