The seafood selection changes daily depending on what the local catch is, but whether big eye tuna, King George whiting or Shark Bay snapper, you can rely on it being ridiculously fresh at Ichirin. This is surely Leeming’s best Japanese restaurant and one of the best casual Japanese places in all of Perth. The sushi and sashimi selections are exquisite, but there is a whole host of delicious Japanese delicacies hiding inside Ichirin on Dundee Street, from Margaret River beef fillet tataki to Fremantle octopus kara-age, carrot rice ball wrapped in Camembert to grilled pork gyoza.

Forget soggy sashimi for a second. Leeming’s Ichirin understands that, in terms of Japanese food, you can’t fool people by dressing up bad ingredients. Instead, Ichirin put high quality, incredibly fresh products (seafood above all) at the forefront of what they offer. The preparation is often minimal, meaning guests at this suave but cosy Japanese restaurant on Dundee Street get to enjoy the natural goodness of these carefully sourced items. That said, there’s certainly no shortage of complex culinary skill on show at Ichirin, and very, very few modern Japanese restaurants in Perth can match the level of freshness, quality and affordability managed here.
Ichirin’s bento boxes are the stuff of legend around Leeming, and you will not regret reaching for one. Still, this Dundee Street star (beside Melville Glades golf course) is a place you can delve a bit further into Japanese dining than most spots in Perth. Why not try scallop, king prawn and seafood wrapped sea urchin tempura? Or soft-boiled abalone with sweet liver miso sauce? Ichirin’s amazing omakase (degustation) sets can be tailored to suit any party size and are ideal for group dining – if you are planning a special event, though, advance reservations are strongly advised at all times.
Really good food. Beautifully presented. Lovely seafood. Subtle flavours. Friendly service. Not many tables so its worth booking, though it looked as though you could sit on the bar stools and watch the chef while eating.
The staff could not have done enough to make sure that our dinner and whole night was fantastic. Everything on the menu was fresh, we ordered more entrees and mains throughout the night as the food really was that good and we wanted to just keep on trying more and more dishes. A fantastic find, and will definitely be going back.
Fantastic food, absolutely loved it!! Harvey Beef Fillet Teriayaki to die for!! ♥️♥️👍👍👅👅😊😊 Authentic Japanese food gem!! Glad it's so close by!! Bravo Ichirin!! Highly recommend this place!!
Authentic Japanese cooking with friendly service. Reasonable pricing, fresh ingredients used. Always busy, must book in advance. Omakase menu looks interesting. Will def go back again.
The 3 of us went to Ichirin for the first time for a birthday lunch after some friends raved about their food. Thankfully we had made a reservation because their smallish restaurant was full. The waitress was very attentive and friendly and before long, we got our food. All 3 of us enjoyed what we ordered - the food was very fresh, tasty and well cooked and it was a unanimous decision that we would come back again.
Ichirin was a surprising gem in a quiet local shopping centre. We enjoyed the Omakase degustation menu, and each course was superb. Hard to choose a favourite. Will surely return, and recommend to others. Ichirin is quite small though, and tables closely spaced, although there is a "sushi bar" to sit at as well.
I visited Ichirin first time. I ordered Obento. The tempura was fantastic. I believe it was the one of best tempura in Perth. I will visit Ichirin again!
Very nice and authentic Japanese food!おいしい!! Among my favourites, the teriyaki king fish was very appreciated. I love sashimi, but I loved Ichirin sashimi carpaccio even more! Will come back for sure.
Authentic Japanese food and great service! I always enjoy eating here. The chef's work ethics, creativity and skill are all great. I recommend Ichirin to everyone who loves authentic Japanese food.
Another delightful meal. We haven't been there for a while (although it is just up the hill) and wanted a nice japanese meal for 2. It was a beautiful experience, the place is small so you gotta book, and the food was divine. The Entree set was delicious and my Wagyu Beef Carpaccio was to die for. Will definitely be back.
This was my third time at Ichirin and they didn't disappoint! The sashimi carpaccio was a winner, as was the octopus karaage. My teriyaki salmon was cooked perfectly and everyone else loved their food too!
Always a beautiful meal at Ichirin, this is our 5th time and we have never been disappointed. The food is prepared with such attention to detail and tastes amazing.
Amazing experience. The food was divine and even though there was only one waitress serving around twenty customers, she made sure all were attended to and that food arrived in a timely manner. Highly recommended place. Make sure you reserve a table in advance as its a small place which can get filled up quickly.
Beautiful food and service. There was nothing I didn't love. We had the entree plate of the day which was bonito tataki, oysters karage (I think) and soft shell crab, gyoza, soft shell crab rice paper rolls and the best teriyaki salmon ever. Can't wait to return. May try the degustation menu next time.
We had the $60 menu and the food was wonderful. You need to book 2 days in advance for this and it is definitely worth it - this menu changes monthly. The place was very busy with take away orders and other other diners - the bento boxes also looked great
We love this place, brought my family along and they love it too. We ate karaage, spicy squid, Teri chicken, tofu salad, agedashi tofu and prawn and assorted tempura and many more wonderful dishes. So fresh and service so quick even when it's busy in the restaurant. Highly recommend.
Excellent - we had the omakase had it was really good with some exquisitely crafted dishes (vegetables, hirimasa wari and the beef fillet red miso were favorites). Staff were very friendly and attentive and it is a nice small venue. Only minor dissapointment was seeing someone else's Octopus Karage dish which looked awesome! Look forward to coming back.
Love Ichirin! The food was lovely and delicious. The service was good too. If you have toddlers they have baby chairs available too. Would come back again next time.
The intimate atmosphere and exceptional quality make this my 'go to' place for reliably excellent dining. Shiro is always smiling and watching him work his magic in the kitchen is always a treat. Great Japanese food, super fresh ingredients cooked to perfection and really good value for money.
We had OMAKASE set menu and it was fantastic ! Beautifully presented and taste real Japanese. Eas dish looked small but by the end of the course, we were full. Although we were surrounded by one big group of customers in such a small place, we did not feel awkward. Highly recommend this restaurant.
