Have just come from experiencing a great lunch at The Wanda Inn. Housed within a small unpretentious shop front, this is a diner's treat. An ex chef from Yering Station restaurant has struck out on his own. The kitchen and the cooking are open to the dining area and this instills a lot of confidence.
The smallish menu is what most would describe as Asian fusion but it has a definite Japanese input. We started out with the pork gyozas which were simply to die for and one of our party declared that when she returned she would simply order 4 serves of the gyozas and nothing else. ($8 for 5)
We tried the teriyaki burger with wasabi mayonaise with handmade fries and salad and the tempura garfish with handmade fries and salad. Both dishes were excellent and both dishes cost $20. The teriyaki burger came with a small bun and a huge pattie of tasty well cooked (not over cooked) meat pattie sitting on fruit relish and the wasabi mayonaise. The tempura garfish was so delicate and tasty and fresh and was served with tempura corn as well as the chips and salad.
There were quite a few dessert options and we had earmarked the pancakes for dessert but we were unable to stay the distance.
The Wanda Inn was doing a very brisk trade in take away sushi and the sushi looked great. I would definitely try the sushi next time as all those people can't be wrong!
This restaurant has ordinary surroundings and the service is not 5 star but the food most definitely is 5 star and the prices are very reasonable for such taste sensations.
Absolutely worth travelling to Healesville for on a Sunday.
