    We tried to book online for 10 people. The online site said there was no availability until after about 4th April so we were going to look elsewhere. However 2 pulled out so I tried for a booking of 8 and it accepted it. When we arrived there the place was next to empty for the entire afternoon. I mentioned to staff what happened when I tried to book for 10 and they said your system doesn’t accept a booking for 10 but if you phone they can discuss that booking. Maybe you should mention this on your site as I would hate to think you are missing bookings because of this.

    Thank you for sharing your booking experience. We value your feedback and apologise for the inconvenience caused due to a feature for larger groups being inadvertently disabled for Sunday lunch reservations. This oversight led to the difficulty you experienced in booking your group size online. We have rectified this issue, ensuring our booking system can now accommodate up to 16 guests. We understand your frustration, especially given the available space upon your arrival, and appreciate your bringing this to our attention. We're committed to a welcoming atmosphere for all and hope to host your group again soon. For reservations or more details, please contact us via email. Thank you for your understanding.

    We celebrated World Pizza Day at Kaiju. They offered discounted Pizzas and a Free pot with every order. The pizzas where delicious. We've eaten here a few times and felt the pizzas where a bit average. But they have certainly lifted their game and their pizzas as some of the best in Melbourne .

    I booked for my end of year Christmas catch up with my team (8 people). This hidden gem certainly has really good quality pizza. They cater to Gluten free as well as vegan so that was a bonus. There is an abundance of beers and drinks to choose from for any tastes. The servers are really attentive and very friendly. The service is on the slower side but it is worth the wait. I mean, you can only cook so many pizzas at once! And really if you are enjoying a drink and good conversation it is not a worry. It was a little loud and hard to hear others but I think that is due to the volume of people who were there that day. I would definitely recommend KAIJU for the food, atmosphere and drinks.

    Great pizza and amazing beer, lost of different styles, they have some sours and more fruit heavy flavours and a amazing cider. Try the cheeseburger pizza, my brain still has trouble comprehending how it tastes just like a cheeseburger.

    Love Kaiju for a quick night out when beer and pizza cravings hit hard!! My partner is like a kid in a playground when we go and what’s to play with all the beers 🍺 Not to detract from the fact that it is a brewery, but I couple of non pizza options on the standard menu would be good to switch the food mood a bit. But service is always excellent and the pizzas are phenomenal, hot and fresh 🤌🏼
