“We are disgusted”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Ordered several asian, overprized dishes. Service was terrible and unfriendly. Cutlery and crockery were dirty.
All felt a little funny in our stomaches afterwards... ;(

“Don't go if you want the tepanyaki entertainment.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

Boring food & chef not good on the spatula. Don't go for the tepanyaki experience because it just didn't do it for the 6 of us. Nah, never again. Pass on this next time.

“Food poisoning”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

We went to this restaurant with my partner before and it was ok. However when my family came to Melbourne from overseas we decided to go to this restaurant. Unfortunately we had terrible food poisoning!!! All our family, my son really felt terrible. We ordered chicken 11 dollar and raw salmon from special menu 8 dollar. It was at 29/07/2012. Anyway be very careful at this place.

“One of my favourites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

The Yuriya has a long and varied menu. It has soft shell crab, big soups to share that are cooked on your table like lobster nabe, grilled fish heads, good sashimi and so much more. Service varies. Prices are too high, but I still go for my favourites. Its centrally located in China town, 5 minutes walk to the Bourke Street mall.

“Great Japanese”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2012

Good variety of Japanese food. Particularly enjoyed the salmon sashimi boat...that's actually served on a small boat. Very amusing. I had a prawn and vege udon noodle soup which was a first for me, it was tasty and the serving was massive.
