This place is inspired. I had walked past a few times before going in. It is always busy. It is located on Bourke Street, towards the Paris end.

The sun was streaming outside and I figured it was time to try. I had the Sashimi Salad special with salmon and ugg. It had umami. It came to the table promptly, quickly and without fuss. All the right condiments were on the table to add extra zing if required.

The gentleman opposite me was eating soba noodles. I asked him how they were and he said that they were the best he's eaten since being in Japan. He went on to tell me that he is a regular. They are quite famous for their soba noodle dishes. Every table was full. (I took the photo after people had left!)

It was quick and easy to pay. The menu is short and cheap. If it's not already on Melbourne Cheap Eats guide, it should be.
