Love the freshness of the food, the price, the portion and the speed at which they serve the food. We love the fried chicken, and sashimi don, which I switched from rice to salad. It was a delightful bowl. Also tried their noodles and teriyaki chicken. We found the portion hearty. That warranted a second visit in 24 hours.

After walking for most of the day around South Melbourne, despite being hungry I really fancied some Japanese. I ordered a Chicken Katsin Don. The meal was out in a flash and I really enjoyed it. Big serving with some zucchini and pickled capsicum on the side. $11.70 for the meal and an Asahi beer was great value.

I mean that. It is super quick that I have to rush putting back change into my purse. Besides, it is cheap and most importantly, delicious on almost everything on the menu except the one with pork. I personally dislike that. Other than that, they're fantastic!

Very fast service, food acceptable, good for quick lunch or dinner. The quality of the ingredients isn't always brilliant, but the food is of an acceptable quality, always hot and tasty and great value. And the service is quicker than McDonald's. It really is fast. You order at the small counter and can eat in or take away.

Small side street restaurant. In South Melbourne. Food was good eating. Japanese . Fast service. Big servings. Very limited Gluten Free menu (waitress didn't know what gluten free was) Tables could have been a bit cleaner.

Don Don is where you go for Japanese style bento meals served in a hurry. There is sure to be a queue but don't worry - they pump the meals out. The limited menu ensures a no fuss cafe. You can sit outside, inside or take away.

Don Don offers a good selection of Bento type rice dishes and Japanese noodles and curries at very affordable prices! The food is served quickly and is always so flavoursome. There is take away available.
