These dishes are delicate... definitely the 'wow'' factor consistently. I love to take friends here that haven't eaten much Japanese food as I know they will be impressed! They let me order... byo wine and the meal becomes amazingly good value.

It is a very busy restaurant even early in the evening. It seems that Uber Eats does many deliveries from there. The food was delicious and the hand rolls were overflowing with Fresh Raw Salmon and a delicious sauce

Our entree sushi/ sashimi platter was the highlight of the meal - fresh and delicious. Service needs a bit of work - they took ages to bring wine glasses and got our mains order very wrong. And after our plates from mains were removed, there was no offer of more drinks or dessert menu for so long that eventually we... More

We were out for dinner with our son & daughter in law. Fortunately we had booked with numerous walk- ins turned away. This is an upmarket Japanese restaurant with tables set professionally & wait staff well trained. We started with gyoza described by my son as the best in Melbourne. Followed with sushi which was ok with a standout of... More

I always get the Ayame special platter and I am never disappointed. The sushi and sashimi is so fresh and yummy. The signature special roll is so decadent topped with the creamy Japanese mayonnaise - delish! We were seated at the back of the restaurant and you could smell the toilet deodoriser - we asked to be moved which they... More

I and three friends had dinner at Ayame on Sunday night and although we were the first customers in the restaurant just after it opened, it very soon filled. We ordered a variety of entrees and mains and it was quite a complicated order but there were no mistakes with it and the dishes came to us at a good... More

Friendly staff and amazing food, good to go with the family or as a couple. The Sushimi was definitely a highlight along with the teriyaki. As the other reviews have noted, however, it is quite expensive so I'd recommend checking out the online menu before going.

Amazing Japanese food, more refined than similar places. They offer take away. The Tataki Salmon it's delicious. If you are in the area don't lose the opportunity but you must realize that it's on the pricy side .
