Popped in on the off chance they could do some sushi platters for a party we had last Saturday. Although not on the menu, the head chef Ken came out and we co- designed some mixed maki platters. Everything was ready on time, looked fabulous and super fresh and tasty.

All our guests (frequent Japan travelers) all declared it "scrumptious".

Well done Ichi Ichi Ku!

We visited Ichi Ichi Ku simply because it was near our hotel and there were few restaurants open in the area. It was a very enjoyable surprise.
The decor is fabulous and it feels very much like a genuine "aka chochin" or izakaya had been transported direct from a Tokyo or Osaka neighbourhood. Service was very friendly and efficient and the sushi was fresh and perfectly cut. No mean achievement just after Christmas. Additionally the beef yakiniku was really tasty as was the miso soup.
This place was clearly popular with the local crowd and was full of happy diners.
Highly recommended for a casual and authentic Japanese izakaya meal.

I love going here. The ebi Mayo (fried prawns with a hot English mayo). The best hangover food ever. Try the black sesame cheesecake, not took sweet, almost tastes good for you. The Gyoza is the best in town. And great breakfasts. , a mix of west and east.

Ichi Ichi Ku is a great new find on Park Street. It is actually spelt Ku not Koo. There is nothing bad to say about this place. The decor is so interesting and creatively done. It is hard not to keep looking around all through your meal at all the curious art works that surround you. The staff are lovely and as for the food, fantastic. We never even made it to the main courses as we enjoyed trying so many entrees and loved them. The beef gyoza and crispy prawns were so good! I look forward to going back ASAP.

Just loved the bento box. This place is small but awesome. Really delicious food. A must go.
One of the best meals I've had in Melbourne.
