Loved everything about this little treasure....we enjoyed the set menu $55 each. Each dish tasted amazing and was beautifully presented on the cutest crockery; it really is a work of art! The staff are friendly and deliver the food with an explanation of what we were about to eat. If you can get a bench seat, its great entertainment, and a joy to watch Miki and his staff work their craft in the open kitchen. We were recommended Mikis by the wine staff at Voyager; so it was fitting to match the food with one of their limited release wines the VOC Sauvignon Blanc; just perfect. Great that is a BYO establishment. Cant wait to revisit; but be warned its VERY popular so you need to book in advance. Keep up the good work Miki & Co.

8 of us dined last night the. 3rd time for 4 of us and the others the first. Nat the waitress remembered our friend had a fish allergy and catered for her selection of dishes. We all had mikis trust menu, so the food just flowed thru the night. All delicious well paced and we all were well sated and thoroughly enjoyed our dining. We'll be back.

We've eaten here a few times since it opened last year and it consistently offers some of the best Japanese I've had in Australia plus super service in a delightful setting. The design of the restaurant overlooking the kitchen is great and the food is authentic yet sometimes quite original and often uses great local ingredients. I've eaten both 'Miki's Trust' where you trust the chef and from the menu and both are awesome. Can't wait to go back again!

What an amazing restaurant! Such a great dining experience. The staff are all so nice and so accommodating, even for my partner who is vegan. We were both able to have the Miki's choice menu which was delicious, the chefs just made a few changes and managed to do the whole thing vegan for him. I have never had that kind of service or willingness to accommodate a vegan ever, anywhere! We've travelled Australia and lived in Melbourne for a long time but this would have to be one of the best places i've ever visited.

Went there last night with two friends. While out wine tasting, the wine person told us about mikis. We called on the spot and were able to get a booking the day of. We had seen reviews on TA but we assumed it was just another japanese joint. But we decided to go based on a locals review. The three of us are quite well travelled and absolutely love Japanese food and we got the degustation menu. We were extremely happy with each course. Yes some stood out a lot more than others but overall we were not disappointed. The swordfish sashimi and the salmon with rice were delicious!!! Yuzu panacotta yum!! I basically licked every course. The portions are great for average eater.
It is a place known for their tempuras and they do that very well. They don't take shortcuts to their food and do each with pride.
The staff and chefs were very very friendly. No issues there.
This is THE place where locals go also!
Get there. You won't be disappointed.
