Our restaurant & workshop share space, but more important are the views we share - that if we can make it ourselves, we will. That traditions guide but do not rule. Rising Sun Workshop does not support factory farming, what we buy in we buy local, from roasters, smokers, brewers, growers, winemakers & distillers who share our philosophies - our mates.

We’re here for your crazy & not so crazy dietaries, not all things are possible but with a little notice they might be.

    We had been looking forward to coming here for a long time, as we both enjoy Japanese food. I had the darkness ramen and my partner had the spaghetti ragu style noodles. I found the darkness to be quite bland in the flavour of the broth and overall did not enjoy the flavours in this dish. My partner enjoyed his but the serving size was quite small. We got the chicken karage and this was delicious. The old school lemonade was also nice. Service was great and the interior itself is lovely. Enjoyed the motorbike light hanging pendants above the table. Overall, we wouldn’t return. The food is not tasty enough to justify a return visit even though we enjoyed the aesthetic and service.

    Discovered Rising Sun Workshop whilst on a long internet search for gluten free joints - and they really didn't disappoint. My partner and I were very excited to find a ramen place that offered an option for gluten intolerances, and it wasn't an issue to do so making the experience the opposite of stressful. The staff were super friendly and accommodating, the place was such a vibe and the food was SO tasty. Can't wait to go back. Will recommend to anyone that will listen.

    Service was slow as there were only two people serving all customers, but food was delicious and also had a very well prepared Negroni. Will definitely be back when I have enough time for a leisure meal.

    Ambience is great here. Unfortunately let down by the service, advised at the time of ordering that sandos weren’t available rather than from when we were seated. Unclear whether they’re going to make a comeback either. Service wasn’t great. Karaage chicken was quite tough. Gyoza was ok.
