Each time I’ve been I’ve have had a 100% success rate. Every time it’s like traveling back to Japan - so very authentic and absolutely perfectly Japanese. The food is perfect, and the whole atmosphere is perfect. If people complain that it’s too small, cramped...More

OMG-this is a little gold mine if you are after a Japanese restaurant in the city. Tucked away in Melbourne’s Chinatown this is currently my favourite place to eat and I can’t get enough. As you walk down a cobbled laneway, Corrs Lane, you will...More

Loved this place because as soon as you walk in the door you feel you back in Japan. Great experience with plenty of choice at reasonable prices. Beef stew and the tempura prawns and vegetables were delightful although portions on the smaller side. Thanks for...More

such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
