Naked Japan offers freshly made sushi just off Moorabbin Railway Station. At brunch, lunchtime, afternoon tea or dinner: there is never a bad time for fresh sushi.

The menu at NJ is expansive and diverse. Indeed, though places in the city like Tattersalls lane are rightfully famous for their Asian restaurants that offer a endless array of choices; NJ is proof positive suburban establishments can 'dish it out' just as good as their colleagues in the CBD.

An excerpt of Naked Japan's menu


The sushi is tasty, filling and fresh. And, a special word on this.
Upon request, the sushi can be made-to-order. While true many restaurants may do this it can often be the exception more than the rule. Therefore, it is a virtue of NJ and caters well to those who may wish for even their standard sushi roll - like a tuna or California - to be made in a particular way.

The location of NJ is also a solid draw. With a wide open expanse of street in front of it, much light filters in and gives the restaurant - whether sitting in the inside or outside seating - an open and spacious feel. True some of the best places in Melbourne - like Barista and Associates - are small and cosy - but NJ works well the other way. Eating Sashimi in house with a sprinkle of lemon on a sunny day is a way to spend an afternoon or early evening that you'd not come to regret.

Furthermore, the drinks on offer at NJ also warrants a mention. While Coke, Fanta and Co. feature so too does some tasty iced teas, juices and and Italian (Capi) soft drinks.

'While it may not be impossible to buy these drinks elsewhere they don't always feature in a sushi bar'


While it may not be impossible to buy these drinks elsewhere they don't always feature in a sushi restaurant, so if you've never chased a Teriyaki roll with a banana and mango smoothie; NJ offers the experience to add a twist to the palate at lunchtime.

Finally, alongside the menu a note on the establishment itself: the decoratives around the restaurant very much add to the charm. Whether the little framed prints or cloth flags depicting the famous woodblock piece, all provide some interest for the eyes as you eat your meal and garner some well earned style points.

All up then, whether just stopping by for takeaway or dining in, this restaurant very much delivers when it comes to fresh food - and a fresh twist with the drinks on offer - and does so in surrounds much effort has clearly gone into making inviting. Naked Japan, delivering fresh and tasty food in the heart of Moorabbin.
