Tucked in causeway walk between Bourke and Little Collins sushi monger dishes out good value lunch meals. I've tried various types of dons and bento boxes, all good. Plus their sushi rolls are excellent, and the service are quick and ideal for someone in a short lunch break. Tip - be wary of the queue if you are coming here... More

I've tried most of the dishes here and they are all pretty good (and cheap). My favorite are Salmon Teriyaki Donburi and Sukiyaki Bento. Long queue is expected during lunch time!

Worth lining up for if you hit the lunch rush. I've been going here for years and the prices have hardly changed. The sushi is usually on point and $6.50 for 3 rolls and a miso soup you can't go wrong. Just make sure you know what you want to order before reaching the counter. Best time I like going... More

My partner and I arrived for an early lunch at about 11:50 am, which turned out to be the perfect time. As soon as we sat down after ordering, people started rushing in and queuing up. Before long the queue was out the door and down the street. Getting there early is definitely a must. Everything is surprisingly cheap (most... More

A queue at 2.30pm but for a reason - tasty, fresh and cheap. Quick service. Self service ginger & wasabi on tables. Will revisit

Queued for a bit during lunch time (about 10 min) but so worth it ! Fresh sushi and sashimi and excellent hot dishes too. Quick service and good value for money. Would go again.

We were watching the queue from another restaurant and saw the incredible queue and wonder what could be so good so we went on the queue next day and ..... I got a bento and it was below $10 and simply had all the flavours and texture as you would find in many others more expensive places. Was it better?... More

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.
