Located on Flinders Lane in Melbourne this is one of my favorite Japanese restaurants. As expected a relaxed ambience calms you as you take your seat. High quality food, attentive staff and easy to access location. Try the chiefs specials they are yummy.

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
