Very yummy little restaurant we stumbled across by chance. Small venue and a little unassuming among the bright lights of Chinatown. Can be a little bit cramped if it is busy. But awesome food and a huge saki range along with some different Japanese beers....More

Ishiya is located in the heart is Chinatown so it's very easy to find. The ambience and decor is quiet dull and dark, but the food served, more than makes up for the decor. We had a custom stonegrill banquet. It's a nice alternative to...More

Ordered the set 1 and selected the scallops as the add on. Plenty of food for two people for $89. The highlight really is the cooking of your seafood and meat on the hot stone that they give you. You are also given dipping sauces...More

Always visit this place when I am in town. Good for a romantic night out or with friends and colleagues. Stone Grills are awesome. Food is fresh and their mid week deals are really great value! Service is always friendly and prompt.

good food, nice atmosphere- arrived on my own at 9pm after walking around to find something inviting but not intimidating- staff friendly and attentive - had miso and stone grilled prawns and scallops - cooking your own food a good option for the solo diner!...More

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
