A family friendly quirky Japanese restaurant. Fun atmosphere good basic Japanese food. Sushi boat travels around a central table in a moat, the children really enjoy catching their sushi. Freshly made sashimi and sushi, good gyoza and grilled octopus.

The decor is great, the service attentive ,... in fact, there's nothing to dislike about this funky restaurant except perhaps the punning name! It offers a great array of choices and all the dishes our birthday party of four ordered were excellent. It's not the best Japanese restaurant in Melbourne but, considering the prices, it's well worth a visit. We'll... More

I fell in love with this place the first time I went. The salmon sashimi is always delicious and serving proportions are really good. The atmosphere is relaxed, welcoming and although it's a tiny little restaurant it doesn't feel cramped. The service is always super friendly, professional and waitresses are really sweet. Oh and the prices are so good! 2... More

Out in Yarraville our fave place for gals night out. We had dinner Kawa Saki at 7:30. The service was great, it was really busy but regardless the staff were willing to answer my naive questions as I am no expert on Japanese food. I got the soft shell crab as a main and shared a small tofu dish with... More

We love Japanese food and recently having been to Japan we were excited to come here for an authentic experience. The food was top notch, everything we ordered was delicious. Although the prices were too high in my opinion. This little restaurant is not in the CBD and has prices that are higher than the Japanese restaurants in the cbd.... More

We came across this busy little restaurant during a work trip and were pleasantly surprised. The food was of good quality and well prepared. Agedashi tofu and pork gyoza were a highlight. The "sushi boats" were cute and a nice variation to the normal sushi train that we have seen.

Tasty food and charming service in this small, low key Japanese resto with a good atmosphere. Even if you're not a massive fan of sushi its still fun to watch the boat go around Usually pretty busy though so a reservation is a good idea. Worth a look for a night in or take-away.

You have the option to order off the menu or pick it up off the conveyor belt. The sushi served is slightly more expensive than a sushi restaurant you would find in the CBD and nothing to rave about.

On a Monday night after 9pm few tables were occupied and we had quite good service, although the staff were giving out pretty obvious messages that they were ready to go home. The menu is large, running to a lot of pages. The three of us had simple meals: dumplings, fried rice, tofu steaks, and a seafood soup. My companions... More
