We dined there for a Valentine's Day dinner, and it was another perfect night spent at Ocha. Service, food and drink were all excellent. Definitely our favourite Japanese restaurant in Melbourne. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Ocha is easily the best Japanese in Melbourne. Amazing dishes across the menu and has a decent wine list. A massive bonus is it’s byo so you can take a few amazing bottles in an enjoy.

Wow! Great food. Love the fusion aspect. Little expensive but it was never going to be cheap!! Great service, book first or be disappointed. For a stylish meal that leaves you feeling sated, you can't go wrong with Ocha.
