Melbourne Japanese restaurant offers: things to know before you go

Think Japanese food and sushi probably springs to mind. But there's so much more to Japanese food than its signature cuisine. Discover what else the deals at Japanese restaurants in Melbourne have to offer here.

Where will I find Japanese restaurants in Melbourne?

If you're looking for Japanese restaurants, the good news is that you'll find lots in and around the city centre. Many of the best cheap eats in Melbourne are located in what's known as CBD, the Central Business District of Melbourne, including highly-rated restaurants such as Purple Peanuts, Don Don, Teppanyaki Inn, Tokyo-Ya, Shukjinko and Kisume. Some of these are seriously popular, so book ahead and reserve a place at your chosen spot.

For those looking for Japanese restaurants in the suburbs, Mr Ryu is located in the south-east of the city and has great deals on Japanese delicacies, washed down with a glass of sake. Miss Kasumi Contemporary Japanese Cuisine in Kew also has offers on a nine-dish benquet for up to four people.

What is the most common type of sushi?

Like Italian food and pasta, there are many different types of sushi. The most common types feature salmon, tuna, prawns, squid and teriyaki chicken. If you're relatively new to Japanese food and haven't really tried sushi before, it's a good idea to sample a selection of different types to see which you prefer. Shuji Sushi offers a sushi platter featuring a selection of different types, so you can sample whichever you fancy.

There are two types of sushi available – with rice and without. Nigiri is sushi with rice, while sashimi is without rice, typically with thin slices of raw fish.

What other types of Japanese food are there?

Japanese food covers a lot of different dishes – sushi, tempura, ramen, miso, noodles, gyoza and many more. The best and quickest way to discover more about Japanese cuisine is to try a tasting experience or book a table at a buffet restaurant, giving you access to a wide selection of dishes.

A tasting menu at Kobe Jones is a great introduction to Japanese food. A typical menu includes classics like crab salad and udon (noodles), together with luxury dishes like tempura scallops, snapper goujons in a lobster broth and tenderloin Amiyaka beef. At Hibachi Japanese Grill, tuck in to a seven-course banquet that features miso soup, pork gyoza, teriyaki salmon and steamed rice.

Is Japanese food healthy?

Japanese food is one of the healthiest diets in the world. Compared to many other cuisines it has very little fat, sugar and is relatively low in calories, as many dishes are based on fish, vegetables and rice. Portions are filling but usually on the smaller side, too. If you eat at a Japanese restaurant, you're likely to have your food served in small bowls rather than receive a plate piled high.

As well as being healthy, Japanese food is relatively inexpensive. In some of the best cheap Japanese restaurants in Melbourne you can get a filling bowl of ramen noodles or a selection of sushi for just a few dollars. Healthy, cheap and delicious – it's easy to see why Japanese food is so popular in Melbourne.
