Three of us had the set meal for $30 a head which included a glass of wine or juice. The sashimi was plentiful and excellent quality, and the rest of the dishes were very good with plenty of variety. Great value with attentive service.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
