This was the 4th time back to this restaurant and the quality and service never vary. ( excellent every time) Service from the waiting staff is prompt, the food is magnificent. We had the gouza's and the Japanese chicken curry on this visit and all dishes were sensational. Would not hesitate to visit every time we are back in Melbourne.

Not the best Japanese restaurant I have been to but not the worst either. Needed somewhere quick for dinner late midweek and this fitted the bill. Reasonable food at reasonable prices. Worth a look.

Ate dinner here on 20/11/16. The food was delicious and the portions were generous. The Okonomiyaki pancake (a vegetable pancake topped with a Japanese sauce and Japanese mayonnaise) was amazing.

Friends and family have all been converted to dining here. When I meet with others in the city, Yoyogi's is on the top of the list to go to. You will never leave hungry and with a wide menu selection, you will never tire of the same food. It helps to book ahead if you can as this restaurant can... More

nice, tidy and strategic place, have variation of menu from ramen, udon, sushi and some other japanese dish. Price is average. The taste is mild not to strong. The service is quite good.

Sushi varieties were great as that was what I was after but they did have other things on the menu that looked good going out to other customers. Staff were very friendly and prices reasonable. Right in the heart of Melbourne.

Thank Karen M

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
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 of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
