Good Taste, great variety, excellent quality. Nice little Japanese restaurant in Melbournes CBD. Restaurant was very busy but the waitress organized immediately two seats for us!

If you book which is hard to do as the last time we rang the answering service said they were no longer taking bookings. Yet when we turned... More

Tiny restaurant serving amazing western-style sushi (with mayo, etc), as well as some other interesting dishes like lemon umbrella grilled chicken. The salmon sashimi is always good, fresh oysters in ponzu are great when in stock, and all the dishes have great flavor including the salmon and avocado nigiri with thinly grated onion and mayo on top. The flame grilled... More

The sushi is fantastic - the freshness of the fish is incredible and the rice is the correct consistency. I would highly recommended the tuna and salmon pieces.

We went here for a Saturday lunch and really enjoyed it. My partner had never been to a Sushi Train so it was something new. The food was really yummy and we left satisfied. We would go again.

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.
