Maedaya is a friendly, casual Japanese izakaya spot in Richmond that serves up food as exquisite as some much pricier Japanese places around Melbourne. In addition to their delicious food, Maedaya offer up a spectacular selection of drinks, including more warm and cold sakes than you could poke a stick at. All the Japanese izakaya classics are done well here, from crunchy edamame beans to succulent sizzled beef, and one of Maedaya’s main points of difference over other eateries along this stretch of Bridge Road – Japanese or otherwise – is their impressive, diverse gluten-free menu, which includes juicy sumiyaki skewers, a multi-mushroom salad with sesame dressing and grilled salmon fillet steak. Maedaya is great for group dining, but in that case it’s essential to reserve a bit ahead of time because it can fill up quickly!
The staff was very nice, so welcoming and fun. Its asif i was back in japan. The food was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked. Would definitely recommend for japanese food lovers.
Food are always so good as we come here often. Drinks are a little pricey but it may compensate for the good priced food. Nice atmosphere. So will be visiting again as usual. Thank you again Maedaya!
Such a great place, friendly staff, delicious food, their all you can eat bbq is some of the best value food and drink! I miss this kind of option from Japan in Australia, totally recommend!
