It is a bit hidden but well worth the find. The staff were really friendly. We had the toast with condiments...yum! Definitely worth a visit.

Very friendly staff and great out door area for when the weather is friendly. The food was good and a reasonable price. I would like to come back for a Japanese dinner.

I used to rave about this place, but it's gone downhill. The service is terrible. The routine (table service? counter service?) has changed many times over and the last couple of times I've ordered from a waitress who is barely interested (doesn't acknowledge us when we arrive, doesn't clean table from previous diners) and who has twice now forgotten to process one of our orders. There is no restorative service or apology when we pointed this out. I recommend the vegetarian options because they're wild and unusual, but the coffee is hit-and-miss (used to be consistently good) and the attitude is ho-hum. I'm very sorry to be writing this review as I was a committed fan, but now we're going down the road to Harvest cafe or IB.

Healesville people have waited a very long time to enjoy the wonderful flavours of Japan within their village. We were all delighted to know that Alchemy had taken the plunge with their Friday and Saturday night Japanese menu and we were not disappointed. The food is sublime here and it's great to see so many familiar faces here week after week. The menu offers a diverse range of Japanese cooking styles and the produce is fresh and beautiful. The staff are happy and obliging as well as being right across the menu, which is helpful because you never know what to choose. If you're in town, a meal here is a must. But make sure you book.

Turns out Sundays in Healesville are bloody hectic!! We were looking for somewhere quiet for lunch to hide from the bustle and Alchemy was the perfect spot. Apple and ginger juice was a delightful zingy start. Both mains were excellent, staff lovely and attentive. Desserts were made in house and just perfect. Tea made with tea leaves, not tea bag was a nice final touch. Good value for the quality, we loved it :)
