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.

Hey Hugh, The oyster mushrooms were a special for the evening and the chefs used a bit of creative flair, thank you for the feedback though. Happy to hear you enjoyed our menu items. Thank you for allocating time to review our venue.

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.

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!

Eazy Peazy
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.

Hey Annon, That five day lockdown did give everyone a different experience of Valentines day. We are pleased that your gatecrashed double date at our venue was an enjoyable one. On your next visit may we suggest trying our tasting menu, it ensures a wide variety of the entire menu and a confidence in knowing you've tried what we would consider a perfect dining experience. Thank you for taking the time to write this review.

Hi Max, Not sure how to receive Berserk as a compliment, either it's in comparison to the fantastic Anime Series Berserk a manga mayhem to the extreme, or by definition 'out of control with excitement. Either way, its a great complement so thank you for taking the time to write it.

Yakitori sticks are all cold.
Looked like they precook everything and then just warm up on the hibachi grill. But the chef didn’t bother to make sure it’s hot

Eazy Peazy
Responded on 11 April 2021

Hey Isabella, We're saddened to read that you had such an irregular experience with the Hibachi food. It's a strange anomaly as the Hibachi's temperature sits consistently at around 250 degrees Celsius. Thank you for your feedback and time to write it. We are always looking for new ways to improve so thank you for letting us know.

Food and cocktails here were delicious. Great value for what we paid for dinner, and staff were attentive, prompt and friendly. We were seated real close to other patrons despite social distancing rules, which was only slightly disappointing.

We enjoyed a great meal at Easy Peasy for a friends birthday (HBD Yuji). I'd have given 5 stars but things did get delayed. Great response from the staff who were very apologetic and looked after us to make up for it. You can't ask more than that when things go awry. Will definitely go back.

Great service in a very vibrant atmosphere. The food was great too and came out at a reasonable pace - wasn’t rushed or slow. Standout dishes were the aburi salmon and coconut panna cotta.
Only complaint is I would have preferred the private table at the back as it was hard to hear friends over the table due to being in the middle of the restaurant.
Overall highly recommend !
