Stop in for a quick meal and pleasantly surprised at the extensive menu and the quality of the food. The staff very courteous and friendly and only having a limited time didn't have time to explore the dishes better. I will return at some stage to do just that. Worth a visit if in the area

Visited this cafe again last week after a long break. Was pleasantly surprised at the new expanded menu and food didn't disappoint. The cafe is fairly basic but clean and prices reasonable. Friendly staff and great food!

It was very nice to have family dinner. The sashimi was really fresh and great. I believe it is the best Japanese restaurant in South - Eastern part of Melbourne.

My wife and I had out first dinner at Kinkaku recently. We were very pleasantly surprised with the friendly service and quality of food. Serving sizes were quite generous. Although the decor was a bit basic with harsh lighting, the food more than compensated. Will definitely go back.

Great authentic food at a very reasonable price. We stop in here quite often and are always happy with every meal we've had. A couple of favourites are the bento box and the tempura- delicious! Well worth a visit if you are in the area.
