Was expecting the food to be amazing but it was super average, lacked flavour and seasoning. We had the tasting menu and only 2 of the 5 dishes were okay. However the service and ambience was amazing. Probably wouldn’t come back until there is a better menu.

A bit slow in serving food. But overall food was great. One order didn’t come. But that’s fine since we’re full as well.

The food took so long to come out. It was great when it finally turned up, but everyone in the restaurant seemed to be as confused by how slow the kitchen was.

Overall a fair experience. Service was very good, attentive waiter. Food was nice but not amazing. For example chicken karage, needed something else to balance it like some shaved cabbage. Again, Salmon yakitori, ok but lacked something else to balance it like some soy, I was searching for salt. I thought the crumbed eggplant in Japanese curry was the really nice. Prices are on the higher side of average.

Amazing! I came across this place by accident, my friend loves Japan and I took him here for his birthday. He said it was like being back there.

The menu is unlike anything I've seen. I highly reccomend the fried cauliflower it's the best cauliflower you'll ever have.

The cocktails also have a Japanese twist to them and are so delicious.

All dishes were fabulous except the eggplant in curry sauce that didn’t quite work.
Standouts were Kingfish, cauliflower, salmon hibachi skewers, wagyu hibachi skewers.
Third time to Eazy Peazy and will definitely be back again.

We had the 9 plate tasting menu and it did not disappoint. Portions were a generous size for a tasting menu and there was an excellent variety of dishes to try. The yakitori was on point, perfectly cooked and seasoned. Our wait staff were lovely, very attentive and friendly. The restaurant itself is beautifully decorated and located close to Richmond station.

Visited Eazy Peazy again with my family. We enjoyed the food and experience very much. We had Omakase, and enjoyed every dish. The food is amazing in taste, fresh and creative. The yakitori and king wing were chargrilled nicely. Surprise us the most is the cauliflower with gabi glaze. Never thought cauliflower can be cooked that way and it is super delicious. We will be back to try other dishes!

service was fantastic explanation of the foods made it hard to order, chef had approximately 10 specials that were verbally given to you that you had to remember.
Pork main large meal was dry and expensive for really grilled pork and potatoe salad.
we walked out hungry spent $119.00 on food alone.

The food was OK. We tried the vegan 5 course set menu. Right from the start the waitress couldn't seem to comprehend that all three of us wanted to eat that. I had to spell it out, more and more slowly, three times. As soon as the drinks came, we knew we were in trouble. We were en route to a party where there would be free drinks, so we thought we'd just share a carafe of chardonnay between two of us and the other ordered a light beer. Out came one glass of chardonnay and a full strength beer. The food was unfortunately easy not so healthy vegan.... ie three of the five courses were deep fried. I guess we should have known; we were the only diners in the joint with grey hair. Oftentimes it seems that places that cater mainly for young people don't care much about service, more about banter. Don't think we'll rush back.

I don't mind paying more money for good quality food, but these were small portions of disappointment.

The meatballs were bland and the egg yolk added nothing to them. The pork crackle was stale and karaage was bland with an unnecessary green sauce added to the mayonnaise that was too herbaceous and overpowering. The kingfish was thickly sliced and in a sauce that overpowered it's flavour so all you could taste was orange. All of the dishes were lacking a balance of flavours; either bland or had one element that stood out for all the wrong reasons.

When brought to the staff's attention that the crackling was stale and we were disappointed in the food, they did comp the pork crackle and brought an additional beef skewer on the house. Even with that and paying $100 for 2 without drinks, we left still hungry. We didn't get drinks because they were stupidly priced for everything.

Throughout the whole meal, we weren't asked how anything was, they cleared the plates and didn't say anything. At the end we were finally asked. I won't be going back there unless they have a serious overhaul of their menu. It's a shame because it's a beautiful spot, great for people watching.

Food was amazing! The service was really disappointing, food got missed and we got charged for things we never ordered on our bill. When I asked someone to take it off, they asked me to go ask one of the other staff, who proceeded to be amazingly rude. Lots of back and forth to try and get something that should have been very simple to sort out. Such a shame because the actual place itself is such a good vibe and the food was good

Had high hopes about this place but food was definitely hit and miss. Yakitori wise, oyster mushrooms had too many conflicting flavours but meatballs and wings were pretty good. Grilled pork was the best dish of the night. Didn’t understand the hype behind the bone marrow Mori.

This restaurant is pure class, yet totally down to earth. Top notch inventive mod-Japanese, fantastic produce, skilfully prepared, with top-shelf yet relaxed and fun service. One of the best restaurant finds for me in Melbourne in the five or six years I’ve lived here.

Food wasn't as good as the previous time I had been, and it took a lot longer than the first time as well. Disappointing really after the first experience had been so good.

Eazy Peazy

Hi Terrance, We do have an ever changing menu that coincides with seasonally available ingredients. The positives outweigh the negatives in using this approach. In saying that, sometimes new dishes may take a little longer then previous menu items. We are always looking for ways to excel so we thank you for your feedback and the time to write it.

Third visit and they've updated the menu again - it just keeps getting better and better. The new additions to the menu are incredible - we ended up ordering a second serving of the scallops (they were that good) and both my friend and I agreed that the chicken karaage was the best either of us had ever eaten. Already planning my next visit!

Responded on 11 April 2021

Hey Tee, We celebrate the emphasis on seasonal ingredients, it's an integral part of Japanese cuisine. It's also incredibly exciting to see what new and wonderful ingredients and dishes the chefs create. It ensures each visit is a new experience and hopefully on your fourth visit it will be just that. The scallops and karaage are fantastic staples of the menu, and our staff agree. Hopefully majority vote is honored by the chefs and we can continue to have those dishes as an offering.

We were meant to dine here on V day but due to lockdown we had to postpone the original plan a week. We managed to get a last min reservation and ended up gatecrashing our friend’s date. The staff were very accomodating and moved our tables together, they were friendly and warm, and very quick to continuously clear our tables and serve us. Every single dish we ordered - which was about 8, was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be returning to try some dishes we missed, as well as re-order some prior dishes. Make sure you also try some of the cocktails from their beautiful bar. Honestly was so delighted but this classy little place.
