Nice ambiance, fantastic staff, attention to deal. Karaage chicken and miso eggplant superb. We have the 3 tier machi seafood platter which was outstanding and beautifully presented. The seafood was extremely fresh and delicate. Desert tasting platter was delicious, the matcha creme brûlée out of this world. Great value for quality.

Went here a couple of weeks ago with a small group of friends and had a lovely meal. My friends are fussy eaters and they really enjoyed the variety on the menu. Will definitely go here again. I thought the servings were generous.wine list was adequate.

Some of the best contemporary fresh Japanese seafood I've had, beautifully presented in a pleasant friendly environment. Take 5 minutes to get away from the main St Kilda drags and head to Inkerman Street to enjoy Machi. Reasonably priced and big pints of frosty Asahi on tap.

A delightful discovery of a modern interpretation of Japanese food and flavors. A confirmation that tradition and evolution together can work and bring the food experience to a new level. Service was quick and efficient without being invasive. A plus: Asahi on tap. Highly recommended for those who are looking for a good twist within the exceptional Japanese cuisine. I'll... More

I think we discovered Machi about two years ago. We tried it – and loved it so much that we went there on a couple of further occasions in 2014. This week we decided to take there a couple of friends with whom we were at Machi exactly one year ago – only to discover that the “old Machi” is... More
