Tokyo Japanese Restaurant, Melbourne

After a whole afternoon of walking around, chasing tram, and missed a train – we finally arrived at Melbourne Central again. It was around 7 pm and we were not sure where to head to have dinner. While walking out of Melbourne Central station, hubby noticed this big board that says Tokyo Japanese All You Can Eat! And there we went for our dinner.

The restaurant is located above a bar called The Meeting Place, in the corner of Elizabeth St and Little Lonsdale St. The cost is $29.80 per person, exclude drinks. Upon climbing the stair, this is the entrance to the restaurant:

A friendly waitress confirmed with us how many people are dining and quickly showed us our table and left us with menu. She explained just ordered whatever we want from the menu and they will prepare as order. Here are what we ordered:

We ordered hot lemon tea for drinks (left) and Chawan mushi (right) – the first order that came out


Clockwise from top left: Agedashi Tofu, Seaweed Salad, Prawn Gyoza, Sushi & Sashimi Platter


Clockwise from top left: Takoyaki, Chicken Karaage, Diced Beef Miso, and Mixed Tempura


And finally, Green tea ice cream!


We enjoyed our meal here, they were not superbly awesome but decent meal. I like the idea of cook as order, where the food came out nice and hot. In doing that, the deep fried food are crispy and not soggy. On top of that, the food also came out very fast – so no worries about loosing much of your time for that.

Chawan mushi was so smooth and fluffy, a very delicate dish. The diced beef miso were tasty, however few pieces of the meat were a bit chewy. The sashimi were fresh and delicious. The tempura batter was nice and light. Love the lemon tea with fresh slices of lemon and doesn’t taste like instant flavoured tea mixes. Green tea ice cream is yummy, with strong matcha flavour and not too sweet. We were happy with everything we ordered and definitely left the restaurant with full tummies.
