Speaking of which, whichever Ayame menu you order from is a guarantee of authenticity, not to mention quality, with every dish as beautifully presented as prepared.

If there’s a group of you dining at Ayame Japanese Restaurant you really can’t go wrong with the sets from the main menu, priced per person and available as three-course, four-course or five-course. They’re a great way to try a bit of everything and bound to leave you with a smile on your face. Set menus aside, the list of Ayame appetisers is impressive – try the Japanese oysters or the crab meat croquettes – followed perhaps with a main of black cod miso, tonkatsu pork or, of course, a selection of sushi and sashimi. The staff at Ayame Japanese Restaurant will be more than happy to help you decide on your selection so you don’t over-order. Ayame Malvern is one of our favourites and worth the trip from wherever you are in Melbourne.
