Japanese food in Melbourne is expensive. Poorer quality Chinese-run Japanese joints serve up the usual Japenese fare (sukiyaki don, substandard sushi and sashimi, udon, gyoza and soft shell crab) for $10-$15 a serve. A sukiyaki don or udon with beef or tuna is $18.50 (expensive) with about 6 or 7 takoyaki balls at $6.50 (cheap by Melbourne standards). But it is well worth trying this fusion Japanese restaurant if you have time. Wait staff are Japanese (always a good sign!) and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. But it's always busy! Stretching across two shop fronts this place is seriously popular and does some very decent sukiyaki don with proper scotch fillet slices of beef or battered chunks of tuna, plenty of sweet onions, bok choy and rice. You can also choose brown rice for slightly extra. Servings are large and the quality of produce is great. Gyoza udon features chicken wontons absolutely stuffed with chicken (too much chicken!) and not the kind of gyoza usually associated with Japanese food.
