I'm lucky to live in very close proximity to this inviting Japanese/Taiwanese restaurant! We booked a table for four of us to try this local restaurant on a Saturday night. When we got there at 7pm it already looked quite busy so I would recommend making a booking as there's not a huge amount of seating. The cosy dining area... More

Australia is near ish to Asian countries. Consequently the sushi is like nothing you get in Europe. The soft shell crab was fabulous as was all of the sushi we ordered. Nice to get juicy, thick raw fish untarnished by wads of uninteresting rice. Relaxed and family friendly - one of our party was a breast feeding mum. I would... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant at lunchtime. It looked inviting, so in we went. It is authentically Japanese with a pleasant ambience. Our waitress was efficient and friendly and the three dishes we had ranged from very good to excellent. We shall certainly return.

Cute little place on Smith St. Peko Peko's menu doesn't change which is fantastic! Favourites like sweet potato gyoza are freshly cooked to order.

The pleasure of the delicate flavours and simple attractive presentation of food at Peko Peko is something I take delight in. A friend rang me because it was February 8 and wanted to dine where there was some buzz about, and though I had lunched well on my day off at Endis in the backstreets of Fitzroy on a huge... More

Came here today and ordered the eggplant dish with rice and miso soup. It was absolutely delicious! The rice I had to order separately and I think this really compliments the egg plant. The service was friendly and welcoming. And the price is decent too.

We were out for dinner and felt like korean. We came across this restaurant on Smith st. The three of us ordered the bbq plate. It was very nice. Yummy and filling. For $35 you get 3types of meat, entree, salad, side dishes, and dessert. I really loved the dessert! 😊

This cafe has the best sweet potato gyoza on the planet! Crispy, slightly burnt bottoms and soft fluffy tops, with sweet oozy centres. Yum. The udon noodle soup is delicious, as is pretty much everything on the menu. Great for the wallet, too.

Thank Chris S
