Asian

Melbourne’s premier Izakaya experience. Ichi Ni has taken it’s place alongside neighbouring St. Kilda institutions with it’s unique design and central location. Providing a casual and lively dining atmosphere, Ichi Ni offers an extensive menu complimented with unmatched views overlooking Port Phillip Bay.

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.

I do not believe the drinks were even remotely close to cocktails. As a couple we drank 4 cocktails each and 5 little bottles of saki. The saki was fine, but I honestly believe there was a shot (if that) of alcohol in the cocktails. The waitress even commented that we had drank a lot and I did mention this to her. Usually if I had 4 cocktails I would be pretty tipsy (if not drunk) Probably wouldn’t come back here again for that reason. Once bitten twice shy

Everything was soooooo delicious. The spicy sauce with the Edamame was soooo good I had to buy some to take home. Best Agadashi tofu I've ever eaten, lobster tacos divine, everything was so good. I will definitely return, and often. Why did it take me this long to discover this place!!??

We were seated and waited nearly 10minutes before a drink order was taken. When the restaurant was only half full, not acceptable. Dishes were delivered and plonked on table without any thought of rearranging placements so they were in the middle and accessible to all.

We found the behaviour of the lady at the reception counter rather rude and patronising: she really did not seem to enjoy customer interaction. I smiled and tried to engage her in conversation about the cold weather that day but and her demeanour remained frosty. Not a welcoming approach and she was either having a bad day and/or would benefit from customer services training. Two of her male colleagues were far more amiable and one showed us to our table and another one noticed we were waiting to order and did come over to apologise. Service was quite slow initially - we had to wait around 25 mins before our drinks order was taken. We asked our server for thoughts about the menu and she was polite but not particularly enthused. Once the food arrived we were very pleased and then the courses came out at a nice pace. Loved the food but the attitude of some of the staff was disappointing. I would go again for the food and do hope that the approach of some of the staff improves.

We were only offered for the meal to be remade even after consuming some of the meal. They had no concern for the after effects of giving a celiac gluten and did not want to make any effort to make up for their mistake. Very disgusted in there service and will not be coming back.

Ambience ok. Music not great for having a relaxing meal after a bigg day. Service ok but felt we had to keep asking for someone to come. I wasn’t that busy.

However if you haven’t really eaten authentic Japanese food, and haven’t travelled much, then this place will most likely be a ‘good’ place. Service was nice, staff did a good job.

The chicken ribs and the yakitori chicken skewers were over cooked and the Okonomiyaki was not fresh - the bonito flakes felt like plastic, probably because they were frozen. Definitely not worth the price tag.

Service excellent. Loud music not excellent! Quality of music also not excellent, totally out of alignment with Japanese food. Only recognised one song. For some unknown reason music was suddenly turned up to an intolerable level where I couldn’t hear my partner speak. When we asked the waiters to turn it down it was like I was asking for mission impossible. Music finally got turned down but by that stage we were well and truly over our dining experience. Will have to carefully consider ever returning.

We had a great time - very noisy though esp for a Tuesday so im glad we got into the mezzanine section. Food spectacular, wait staff very efficient and friendly, drinks on the expensive side. We will go again but to a booth or the mezzanine . 👌🏻

After visiting on Saturday night, we had to go back on Sunday night. So fresh and the sashimi just melts in your mouth! We had the sanju nana plate which was ample food and the sashimi, pickled ginger, radish, wasabi, Kaiser rolls - all were superb. Loved watching them put the food on the plates creating art! The whole experience, complete with a large range of Saki, plus lovely wait staff has made this our new go to restaurant whenever we come to Melbourne. Be seeing you soon Ichi Ni!

The service was a downside as we had to approach staff twice to be served, when food did come out we where missing a meal but easily fixed. All in all a great night just a bit slow on the service which could be forgiven as it seemed to be a busy night.
