Great for take away and eating in. Get a table away from the door though, it's breezy in winter! Tasty and good value.

I went for a pre-theatre meal early evening and had several of the small plates, including gyoza, cucumber and takoyaki. It was all very well cooked and delicious. Each plate was only $6 and there was a large selection.

We stumbled across this little gem while staying in the Chinatown district in Melbourne. We were absolutely blown away by the flavors in the food and the value for money. We had 4 dishes, beers and a side of rice between the 2 of us and the entire bull came to just over $40. There was a huge variety of... More

I just had their duck and eggplant gyoza which was delicious. The service was good. There were other dishes on the menu aside from gyoza which I didn't try. Vegetarian options were also available.

A very cosmopolitan feel to this Japanese eatery. The menu is wide and varied and enables you to snack or dine according to your appetite. A great range of Japanese sake rice wines and interesting display of sake bottles at the bar. Good value too

Food is alright but not really happy with the service. We went during weekday lunch time, not very busy only few tables with guests. We had three people and ask for water. We waited for 10 minutes and only a glass of water (for 3?????). Later on when they started sending the food, they sent wrong food to our table... More

Stopped here for dinner on a whim and am very glad I did so. The food was excellent and so was the price. The Jukke (a type of steak tartare) was delicious and so was the seafood croquette. The only thing stopping me from giving a 5 rating was that the sake was a like warm rather than hot. Apart... More

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
