Ichi Ni Izakaya - St Kilda
The Izakaya style restaurant is a visual feast that has combined modern dining with a traditional twist. Multi level seating, private booths and year round heated decking ensure each visit is as original as the first.
Ichi Ni accommodates a full and traditional Japanese menu that caters to all tastes – yakitori, sushi, sashimi and Japanese tapas. You won’t have difficulty finding the perfect drop to go with your “Tabemono” either… an extensive beverage menu offers sake, cocktails, fine wines and a range of Japanese beers to compliment each meal.
Need to book at 9:15 PM?Other great restaurants with availability.
The service was very slow, We had to order drinks three times before they would arrive. Our drinks were also cleared off the table before they were even finished. We have dined at This restaurant several times, and from the last experience there is a notable decline in quality and service.
Overall the food was good, great service. However, I thought the rice cake with chicken mince skewers were very basically and over priced, i wouldn’t order that again!
First time at this venue. When we arrived it wasn't busy, but we sat at our table for at least ten minutes before anyone came to us. And that was because we caught someone's attention.
When the waitress came she said are you ready to order. But we hadn't even had a chance to order drinks. Once we got the drinks order in and started ordering the food, things went quite well after that.
We have eaten a lot of Japanese, and whilst all the savoury dishes were pretty good, the icecream to finish off with was amazing. We chose the trio - presentation and flavour was so good I'd go back just to have that dish again.
Always love the food at Ichi Ni Izakaya. The only drawback was we were placed at the Sushi Bar next to the kitchen. It felt like we were in a corridor and was always conscious of possible wearing the next meal as the staff rushed by. We also had our back t the bar and we had a couple of accidents where we had to stand to let them sweep up the broken glass. Also, being at the Sush Bar is usually a bit of a treat watching the chefs go through their paces. Unfortunately the cabinets you would normally look through were full of containers and you couldn't see anything. Will always go back for the food but will never get placed in that location again.
This place is one of my favorites been coming here for a long time never disappoints
Staff were rude. Restaurant was empty and we left before ordering.
Good food but very small servings and expensive. Think this restaurant is better for 2 people than groups ( there were 6 of us) Bots left hungry!
Great food!! Fantastic location, great service and friendly staff
Fantastic location and great food!
Love it. We have been at Fitzroy and st kilda and will keep coming back. Next one will be at south Yarra.
Great food; excellent service. Really nice atmosphere
Ichi Ni ticks all the box’s for me. It’s relaxed, has great food and drinks and the staff are good at their jobs. One of my favourite casual Melbourne restaurants.
Very good service and food great location will be back
Came to Melbourne for a quick weekend break, my friend insisted to go here.
Absolutely fantastic experience.
Every mouthful amazing, the margarita with Jalapeño was a sensational surprise and the decor & ambience of this place is just legendary.
Staff are friendly & switched on.
If only my belly would allow me to eat & drink through the whole menu I would.
Can’t wait to return to Melbourne & Ichi-Ni.
Thank you 🙏
Beautiful food as always, and excellent customer service - very welcoming and quick to provide service. The whisky cocktail on the specials drink list was delicious! Lovely selection of drinks. And the food was lovely and fresh.
Amazing food and service was genuine and prompt. We will be back!
Great Japanese food and attentive service. Highly recommend! A local favourite.
When booking on line, no opportunity to specify where the table would be situated. Our table was in a very hot spot outside and the group was very uncomfortable.
Service was terrible. Food was amazing. But seriously I can’t stress how bad the service was!
Excellent restaurant, great vibe - delicious food . Will definitely be going back
The grilled eggplant is a must and the house made yuzu sake always delicious. Service was a little slow
Ordered the banquet for 4 x people, the menu was a little daunting! The food was absolutely stunning, will definitely be back, service was great, even got blankets to sit outside and watch the sunset! HIGHLY recommend.
I dine at Ichi Ni quite regularly and unfortunately this time the food was cold and service was slow.
Food was lovely, atmosphere great & the only downside was the service was a little slow
The food was a bit late when we dined this time but I highly recommend this place
Would def go back
Beautiful space with great food & service..loved it!
Amazing food great service won’t be our last time :)
Overall it was an incredible meal - service was amazing, everyone was so warm and welcoming and friendly. Drinks - warm sake and cocktails were a delicious start to our meal. Food was served quickly and was very tasty, except the only thing was that the portion size could be improved for certain dishes; the miso eggplant dish (3 small slices of eggplant), pork yakitori and the wagyu tataki which was deliciously tangy but just came in a really small portion. Other than that, everything else was sublime! Thank you for a wonderful meal to celebrate mum's birthday.
The best Japanese Izakaya in Melbourne
Great attentive and friendly staff
Perfect location next to St Kilda beach
A fun night out!!
Lovely to dine here as always
Would keep coming back
Beautiful atmosphere, great service, food was amazing.
Always love coming here, Great food and Great Staff!!!
Absolutely amazing food and very friendly wait staff. It's a little noisy at times, but that just adds to the atmosphere.
Great place! Although felt like we were being rushed to leave. Bill came to $120 and they wouldn't allow us to do 2 payments of 60 dollars. "Against policy" was the answer we received...
Would go again although wouldn't be my first choice in St. Kilda
Outstanding service from staff with great food in a relaxed atmosphere. Loved our night
Wonderful night with a very lovely waiter who made my husbands birthday special
I brought my partner to Ichi Ni for his birthday, we both loved everything from the menu that we tried and the service was outstanding. Our waiter was polite and helpful the entire time and we felt very comfortable. The food was absolutely amazing as always and we already can’t wait to come back!
Staff were friendly and helpful. Food and drink were delicious. Will definitely be back.
Food was fantastic and the service was great. Definitely would go back any time!
Always reliable food wine and service. Happy to be a regular patron.
