Tiny shop in an alley with a que - but worth it! Super fresh & well-priced. I had the salmon & tuna chirashi for 10.50 ASD. Best for solo or two at most unless for takeaway. Small seating area inside, with 4 additional tables outside in the alley.

Thank lynnlangit

We've been going here for a while now, when dealing with the Sensei you should follow these basic rules....Don't make eye contact. Know what you want before you get to the front. Don't speak too loudly in the que. Speak clearly and correctly, only asking for what is on the menu. Don't ask questions, except to politely ask for Wassabe... More

Tiny little shop in causeway lane with a small amount of seating. Very long queue at lunchtime but it moves very quickly. Various lunch combinations. Had the sashimi bento and the tempura bento. Very quick service. The food is very fresh, generous and delicious. Very good value for money. Yum!!!

We had two takeaway lunches from this very modest eatery. The quality was excellent and is far better than most more formal establishments

The freshest sushi in Melbourne and great value I always order 2 rolls and miso soup. If you get there before after 12pm there is a line but that also means high turnover and super fresh food

One of those little places that never disappoints. Inexpensive delicious sushi (lots of variety), fantastic and generously sized bento boxes. Dine in (although seating is limited) or takeaway. Service is quick. But be warned, lunch hour is hectic and you could be in a queue.

Tucked in causeway walk between Bourke and Little Collins sushi monger dishes out good value lunch meals. I've tried various types of dons and bento boxes, all good. Plus their sushi rolls are excellent, and the service are quick and ideal for someone in a short lunch break. Tip - be wary of the queue if you are coming here... More

I've tried most of the dishes here and they are all pretty good (and cheap). My favorite are Salmon Teriyaki Donburi and Sukiyaki Bento. Long queue is expected during lunch time!

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.
