Get a table before they're gone
Great food just took a bit to long to get food to table, attentive staff.
The food was great. With the all you can eat menu, and our group of 6 we were abke to try a wide variety of dishes. And we stuffed ourselves. The drinks (spirits etc) were a reasonable price and the quality (and quantity) of food was well worth the $38 pp price tag. The restaurant is a little noisy. The staff are friendly and service moves along at a reasonable rate.
Great food and lovely service. We enjoyed the atmosphere and looking forward to return in the future
So, what’s the Okami Ballarat menu all about? Well, from the all-you-can-eat menu – which is by far the most popular choice – you’ll find a whole host of options made from fresh, tasty seafood and meat and vegetables all cooked with that famous Japanese precision.

For sashimi lovers, keep an eye out for the sushi and sashimi platter that’s loaded with fresh and expertly prepared tuna, salmon and fish. Okami is one of Ballarat’s best Japanese restaurants and is the perfect location for catching up with friends or family and feasting on delectable dishes in a chic and stylish location.
