About Ibuki House Restaurant

Owned by chef Tsukasa Ibuki, the first trained Japanese chef to come to Australia after the war, Ibuki House Restaurant has become one of Melbourne’s most respected Japanese restaurants, with chef Ibuki the first to introduce the concept of omakase dining to the city. Omakase means ‘to entrust’ and the idea is to let the chef select the dishes for you, and we know you’ll be more than delighted with Ibuki House Restaurant’s selections. Or, you could choose something from the a la carte menu which includes all of the Japanese favourites like sushi, sashimi, fried and grilled food and rice and noodle dishes. Located on Glenferrie Road, Ibuki House Restaurant attracts diners from all over Melbourne to its Malvern location so book ahead to avoid missing out!

More about Ibuki House Restaurant, Malvern

Melbourne is no stranger to exceptional restaurants and concepts, it is after all the food capital of Australia. But it is truly special when you find a restaurant in this bustling city that has stood the test of time as long as Ibuki House Restaurant has. Delivering fresh and authentic Japanese cuisine since 1962, chef Ibuki is one of the most revered and respected culinary artists in Melbourne, and when dining at Ibuki House, it’s pretty clear why. Specialising in omakase, this Malvern delight has a flair for knowing just what their guests would love, and passes with flying colours every time. Pair this choice alongside a sake from their carefully curated menu and you’ll be in Japanese culinary heaven.

If omakase isn’t to your fancy, why not select some tapas-style dishes to share – we love the ebi tempura maki, which is thick sushi roll with tempura prawn, cucumber, avocado, mayo with tobiko, grilled salmon in teppanyaki or miso sauce, katsu don of pork schnitzel on rice or perhaps tempura udon in a hot udon noodle broth. Whatever your selection, Ibuki House Restaurant in Malvern, just south of the Melbourne CBD will have your tastebuds dancing. You’ll find Ibuki House on Glenferrie Road – just be sure to book in advance.
