Located off Chinatown at the end of Corrs Lane is this little gem. Been here a couple of times and it did not disappoint. The staff are very friendly and the food is well priced and tasty! We always order the gyoza which comes as 6 for $6.60 and though they are quite small, they are nice.
This time I ordered the tofu steak and it was great, would be good with veggies or rice as the sauce is rich. Partner ordered the ramen and it too did not disappoint.
Worth visiting for an authentic look and feel of being in Japan.

Found this place by pure chance and very glad we stopped in for dinner. The place is tiny, so fills up in no time, but the food is great and the atmosphere is very Japan-like. Will come back.

This was such a great place to conclude 2016 with .
We were interested in partaking in the banquet which included the Sukiyaki.
The entrees preceding the mains were delightful and so tasty .
The sashimi melted in my mouth and the everything we sampled was pleasing and so very delectable.
Friendly staff added to the pleasant atmosphere and so too the traditional seating we were allocated.
A great little place that delights the senses.
A must when visiting Melbourne.
Will visit soon !!

Found this while strolling around Chinatown. Tiny restaurant, very nice food. Our kids (adults) who had recently traveled to Japan enjoyed the authentic Japanese drinks menu, "sparkling sake" a highlight. They went back the following night.

This restaurant is a bit of a hidden gem. Its a small establishment nestled in a alley way in Melbourne's China Town. Its good value, very friendly service and good food. Well worth a visit!
