Y14 serves modern dishes that combine Japanese technique with Australian produce by Chef Tatsuya Yamazaki. You can eat-in, or takeaway sushi and our signature Donburi ‘rice bowl dish’ consisting of fish, meat, vegetables and more, simmered together and served over freshly steamed rice.

The restaurant is located just 30 minutes south of the Melbourne CBD in the beach-side town of Sandringham. Just 1 min from the Sandringham metro train station.

The best Japanese food in Melbourne! Love the larger venue. Would be even better if they got some aircon. We went on a hot night and were a little hot.

The food was really delicious, up with the best Japanese food I've had! Even our kids 7 and 4 loved their bowls. Great to have healthy, delicious options for kids!
Will definitely be back :)

What a suburban gem this place is! I've eater there twice now and both times the food has been excellent. I never knew you could make fish and chips taste Japanese ;-) Highly recommend.

We had a wonderful meal with friends. All dishes came out swiftly and were incredibly fresh and tasty. The service was great - staff were very attentive without ‘hanging around’ the whole meal. Will definitely be back!

Food excellent as always, cold dishes arrived almost as soon as they were ordered. Pretty squishy but not intrusive. Will return again and again.

Have been to Y14 a few times and it is consistently good in terms of menu, if a bit limiting. It is a good local Japanese restaurant however. The evening we dined there was very hot and the absence of air conditioning made our experience there a bit uncomfortable which meant we didn't stay very long. Two out of the three times we visited, it was very noisy.

Only thing I don’t understand is why you have to pay 10per cent extra on a weekend

Flew in from interstate to catch up with family. Not the right environment for a quiet catch up. If you like noisy restaurants, by all means this is a trendy looking place but was far too pumping with other noisy diners close by for us to chat properly. Main meals were good but the snack menu was overpriced.

Food over priced and service was terrible! Double charged us on the bill for a dish and WE had to convince them to remove it! Owner very arrogant and unapologetic, made a complete scene in front of our young family- would never dine here again and would not recommend to family or friends!

We loved our evening at Y14. Just a perfect summer night. We sat outside with our 4 legged boy and enjoyed all that was served. We had a few dishes from the entrees and shared the special poke bowl which was our favourite for the night. The service was quick but we weren’t rushed out either. So relaxing and our taste buds were satisfied!

The table behind us was very loud, we chose feed me menu, and there were 3 plates of sushi rolls at one time, it would be better with one plate of sashimi and dessert, 3 plates of sushi rolls is just too much. Would rather have more varieties.

To date we have not been disappointed with our food at Y14.
Maybe a couple of dishes not for us but that is personal taste.
We have been dining here quite regularly for the last 12 mths, and we always enjoy the food as it leaves you feeling satisfied without feeling full and bloated. Delish!

This was our first visit to Y14. The food was amazing and the service very attentive and I would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends however the only negative was we were rushed through our dishes and bill paying so that a couple waiting for a table could be seated. We were out the door by 8:00pm, our booking was for 6:45pm. This did not make for a relaxing evening. I would still go back again, but am now more aware and would order dishes more leisurely if I wanted to hang out with my friends for a longer chat and a drink.
