Having visited Japan twice, count myself as being somewhat knowledgable about Japanese food. I must say that Izakaya Hachibeh is amongst the best Japanese restaurants I've visited in Australia. We had a sushi platter followed by sashimi, and then a freshly cooked fish. The sashimi...More

The izakaya has an extensive menu of hot and cold starters, and mains. A good selection of sakes too including Hachibeh sakes that are only available in Australia. We ordered the Japanese favourites such as gyoza, deep fried tofu, sushi and sashimi. They were well-executed.

Authentic bites, try something you've never had before. Serving sizes are bigger than you expect from an authentic Izakaya, so if you're only two, don't order a lot! Good selection of beers and sake. Only thing missing was whisky.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
