Not sure where else you'll find a meal like this for less than $10! The food is ready quick and tastes fresh. I had the tofu katsu curry bowl for $6.50 and it was a good feed! There's no denying there's better Japanese food out...More

This place is so cheap and really tasty with good portion sizes. Had the beef and chicken curry, both great for less than $8. It's really fast food as well. Recommend for a tasty lunch break if you work in the city

I wish we had this in Sydney. Great food and quick service. Not a place for a quiet meal but more of a 'eat and go' vibe and that was ok.We'd be back again if we're ever in Melbourne again.

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
