Find us in the heart of Flinders Lane, a stones throw from Flinders Street Station and Federation Square, and discover three levels of dining. Our modern sushi bar and restaurant sit in the basement and ground floor, while Kuro Kisumé sits discreetly on the first level. Kuro, our most bespoke experience, encompasses The Table, two private dining rooms, an elegant Chablis bar and Winewall specially-curated by Philip Rich.
Fantastic way to celebrate a birthday, staff are great, food is exceptional, as it has been every time I visited.
All dishes were average and somewhat not thought through in terms of palate experience. The beef sauce was overpowering and extremely rich while the miso soup had very minimal taste. The sushi in the board already had premixed washabi which was very unthoughtful of anyone not Loki g washabi and very unlike Japanese tradition.
Even though we had two hrs to dine in, we felt rushed from the start. We spent $500 in an hr. Within an hr they fed us the entire menu and pretty much rushed us out of the door.
Absolutely top quality food. The nigiri and sashimi were exceptional.
Very good all round, food was fresh and delicious. Wine list was great, Sommelier was very helpful and selected a cracking Chablis, and overall very pleasant evening.
Good food and service however I have been a few times in the space of a year or so and the variety in the dishes could slightly improve. Portion sizes for banquet definitely on the smaller side.
Really good venue, beautiful food and very friendly staff.
I was overall very happy. My waiter was fantastic although we did order the truffle mushroom rice to add onto the banquet which we did not receive. We were not charged for it just a bit disappointing cause we were really looking forward to it. And by the time we realised we had already gotten our dessert so it was too late to ask for it by then. Apart from that it was great just a bit annoying that he sold it to us and my dinner companion was extremely looking forward to it.
the waiter spilled soy sauce on me when taking away the starter dish for the omakase course. Didn’t want to cause a scene or get anyone in trouble, we kept quiet, but please be mindful. thank you! awesome omakase course as usual, thank you to our chef
Tables didn't get cleaned between guests, our table was dirty. The cutlery was placed directly on the dirty table. Was rather disappointing in light of COVID-19, spoiled the experience.
Kisume is a beautiful place. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted with such friendly service. Every dish served to us was delightful, well-balanced and delicious. Thank you for this experience. We had a great night!
Very good. Enjoyed the food immensely. Attentive service and quality wine!
The food was amazing. Presented really well and good service. Felt the wine was quite pricey.
You will find exceptional service and relaxed atmosphere with mouth watering food
The set menu at Kisume was delicious. Each course was light and tasty and the dessert in particular was superb. With 5 small courses it was not too much- just right!
We were in a corner near the guy organising tables so it wasnt my favourite spot. We should have stayed downstairs where the ambiance is a bit more open.
We were celebrating two very special birthdays and the food and service was outstanding. The only thing I would like to mention is the temperature in the restaurant was very cold and we did not take our jackets off. We also had an issue with the bill at the end of the night where the prepaid voucher was not applied and our credit card was overcharged
Delicious clean food. The wagyu beef is to die for!
The food, cocktails, the staff - everything was amazing
Great showcase of japanese dining! Also great cocktails and wine avaliable.
Amazing experience loved the atmosphere and the chefs menu was a treat
The experience at Kisume was amazing from beginning to end. We did a set menu and each course was delicious. The service was on point and each server was knowledgeable about the food and drink menu.
Food was very cold and not fresh. It was not worth the money we spent. We felt rushed to eat and leave straight away
Kisume is a very relaxing experience with excellent food. For it's price point it is up against the very best in Melbourne. We enjoyed the food and the drinks but the service was not great, lacking in pretty basic energy and charisma.
I didn't feel like the price was a reflection of the experience but in these tricky times it is difficult to be too critical.
Great food overall! Just wished there were more sushis served as those were amazing.
Amazing. Second time of visiting. Fresh and tasty looking forward to next time.
It was a fantastic experience. We will absolutely return.
Good quality food, overpriced relative to food quality, experience and service level
The food is amazing and the service is top class made with fresh quality ingredients.
Great night. Fantastic service great food would recommend and will be back again.
The sashimi and nigiri was incredible, as were the desserts. Other courses excellent too.
Food was delicious and the service was very professional.
great atmosphere and staff with very great tasting food however the sign for the entrance should be clearer because i totally thought the door was an emergency fire exit
Kisume is one of my favourite. It's like the go to place for all my special occasions. The quality of the food is unparalleled elsewhere. Every dish has so much personal touch and there's simply nothing I don't like on their menu. You get what you pay for.
The food was exceptional and they seemed to be trying hard to bring the business back to normal. I would definitely come back.
Love Kisume, it’s our first choice, when ever we visit Melbourne.
Amazing food, fresh seasonal produce and great service.
Good food and atmosphere- first meal after lockdown!
I couldn't think of a better way to break our isolation than with a meal at Kisume. Their set menu is fantastic & the way they have managed to implement the social distancing rules while still creating an amazing vibe/ambience was super impressive. Service above & beyond as usual. Highly recommend!
Beautifully presented food with excellent service. Amongst the best sushi in Melbourne with modern Japanese dishes.
