The portion size is generous and the place was packed with students, usually a good sign that the food is cheap and cheerful. I had the special rice dish which was so plentiful it meant I couldn't finish the additional chicken skewers I had purchased. My partner was not so fortunate as her dish was soaked with soy sauce which... More

Good, honest, reasonable Japanese fare. If you come after 3pm, there are sushi specials - 3 rolls for $5 Okonomiyaki - probably one of the best ones with a super killer sauce. Gyoza - probably one of the juiciest and fattest gyozas with heaps of fillings. Sushi rolls - probably one of the fattest sushi rolls with the softest rice... More

Found this place by accident and loved it. Authentic flavours and great variety one small quibble was that the very tasty ramen came with noodles that were closer to standard egg noodles rather than true ramen noodles. Good food done well

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
