Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

They say it’s usually the small cafes that are the best…and it certainly has been this way. Amazing food, the flavours are very unique. Presentation of the dishes are top notch ( well done to the Chefs ) and not to mention the staff are...very friendly and very approachable. Kudos to the entire team. A must try and will definitely be back. Keep up the fantastic work. 👏🙏👍More

When you go out for Japanese, you know what you want and the bar is always high. The attention to detail, the selection of high quality produce, the immense diligence in preparation, the waiter who croons over the placement of dishes and waits to see...your sheer joy before backing away slowly.... Yeah, Hibiki nails all this.More

This is a great cafe for breakfast/brunch or a quick dinner. The cafe offers a good selection of mains and side dishes all of which are inspired with the creative flavors of Japanese cooking and presentation. I am never disappointed with any meal selection, the...service is friendly and turn around is good.More

Every time I go past there seems to be people milling about. Today, I had time to drop in for the cold brew over ice. A great drink on a warmish, humid day.

Had a number of coffees there last week while in the neighbourhood for a conference. The staff are incredibly friendly. I always look for non-mass-market coffee in local cafes and this place serves a good product. I visit this neighbourhood regularly and will come here...more often and even check out their food - when it was coming out to others it looked pretty good!More

Took a seat at the window seats and was served some of the best Japanese inspired brunch dishes in Australia let alone the world. The okonomiyaki with bacon and eggs was a mixture of authentic flavours and new-age deliciousness. The iced matcha and matcha milkshakes...were refreshing and served in Japanese beer mugs. The red bean souffle pancakes were soft and tender, melt in your mouth pastry. Overall a wonderful experience and will come back for lunch and their dinner experience.More

I’m always interested when favorite brunch places open for dinner. Usually it never feels right, not ‘nighttime ‘enough. Not here, they’ve got it so right, in their usual stylish way. Service is spot on, even though they’re busy, and their Japanese inspired Negroni is utterly...delicious. And so it begins, dish after dish of great modern Japanese food, with little Hibiki twists. I’d recommend going with 4 people, and sharing everything, we did, and loved it all. Lobster rolls, raw tuna, spicy edamame, chicken skin yakitori, classic chicken and leek yakitori all were flavour bombs that hit the table on beautiful Japanese ceramics. A pork belly, egg and rice dish didn’t thrill us, but their Yuzu cocktail did. We didn’t have dessert, but we saw them, and wow, next time. It’s a really contemporary cool little space doing really great food, you should go.More

The food was pretty good and the staff were friendly. However it was very disappointing to find that we had booked a table for 6 people one month in advance - only to be told within an hour of arriving that we had to leave...as they had another group waiting for a table. We were rushed out of the restaurant before we’d barely gulped down the last of our meal with no time for coffee or cake - it looks like they had promised the table to another waiting group without telling us. If you take a group booking you should allow at least a couple of hours otherwise at least tell them there is a maximum of one hour at the time the booking is made.More

We've been here a few times for breakfast and lunch. An absolute favourite. Accessible, delicious and tremendous on every visit. Now they do dinner! Small menu of exquisite dishes. Relaxed, and a bit funky. Highly recommended.

Only in Melbourne for a couple of weeks but we have already been to Hibiki 3 times for breakfast. You are made to feel special as soon as you walk in the door by one of the many delightful staff members. The food is exquisite...and extremely creative - I’d recommend it to anyone!More
