Small side street restaurant. In South Melbourne. Food was good eating. Japanese . Fast service. Big servings. Very limited Gluten Free menu (waitress didn't know what gluten free was) Tables could have been a bit cleaner.

Don Don is where you go for Japanese style bento meals served in a hurry. There is sure to be a queue but don't worry - they pump the meals out. The limited menu ensures a no fuss cafe. You can sit outside, inside or take away.

I Have been there for 4 times, always happy about the price and taste. Limited options but super cheap. Not served Ramen, though.

Don Don offers a good selection of Bento type rice dishes and Japanese noodles and curries at very affordable prices! The food is served quickly and is always so flavoursome. There is take away available.

Even if you see lots of people queuing, fear nothing! Don Don is well known for its efficiency. You pay and you will get your order in the next 5minutes or less. I recommend the teriyaki chicken and chicken curry with extra sauce and pickles. I used to get addicted to their soba salad as well and now switches to... More

Yum yum yum! Food was fast, fresh and excellent value. Ordered a bento box, curry, miso and spring rolls for around $23. Will definitely be back!

This is one of the busiest lunchtime spots in the area. You line up, order and then the food is passed to you. It is superfast and cooked fresh. The only difficulty is getting a table. It is VERY busy. Takeaway is a good option

Super Cheap, Super Fast, Super Tasty, Super Service. It's an experience, you really do need to know what you are ordering before you get the cashier otherwise you are holding up the line which is typically out the door after midday.
