Melbourne is full to the brim with incredible restaurants… and full to the brim is exactly what you’ll be after paying a visit to OKAMI. With several locations peppered throughout the city, its Brunswick restaurant is fast-becoming the go-to spot for exceptional Japanese dining. Its all-you-can-eat menu is generous, fresh and tasty and you’ll find a plethora of Japanese dishes ready for you to get around, or opt for the a la carte selection. Not only that, the team at this Moreland Road spot are environmentally conscious, with a simple concept: eat as much as you can in your allotted time, but don’t waste.
When a buzzing restaurant such as OKAMI is so forward thinking when it comes to waste, well, in Melbourne that goes a long way. These Japanese specialists are hard-nosed in all the right ways when it comes to food waste, and if you opt for its all-you-can-eat buffet, what you don’t eat, will incur an extra fee. War on waste? Yes please! With seven locations around Melbourne, one of their most popular spaces is in the foodie haven of Brunswick along Moreland Road, off Sydney Road.
On the menu at OKAMI Brunswick, you’ll find delicious starters like agedashi tofu served with fish broth and bonito flakes and chawan mushi of steamed savoury egg custard with chicken and soybeans. For the main, we love the diced steak served in a refreshing miso sauce. Also lovely is the seafood tempura or even the udon noodle soup with fish cakes, sliced chicken and vegetables in a Japanese miso soup. Whatever you go for, OKAMI is one of Melbourne’s premier dining spots, and we think you’ll be in foodie heaven here.
Greatt way to make a reservation. So easy and stress free Great food and service at Okami. Staff are friendly and curtious. Will use Quandoo again and will be recommending Okaml
Love this restaurant! So budget friendly, staff are lovely and the food is amazing! If you come here definitely come for the all you can eat menu. We were in and out within 45 minutes having eaten as much food as we could fit in!
Food was amazing and the staff were very friendly. Great value for money! Definitely book ahead of time though because they are very busy :)
Absolutely delicious - service was really good and the food was actually so good - really well sized portions and freshly made, would 100% recommend
Great value. Friendly and fast service. Food was amazing and tasted fresh. This was our 4th time going and its the best all you can eat Japanese restaurant i know. Place is very lively and great atmostphere. It does get loud but that is never a problem at all :) great for the whole family.
Definitely worth checking out for the $30 all you can eat. Food and service are good. And a fair selection of dishes to choose from, around 30 or so. You're sure to find something you enjoy. It may not be the most gourmet, but for the price it's a damn good feed. Have been twice now, and will be back for more.
Food is always amazing and always leave this place full. I love that everything is made fresh when ordered. I would recommend ordering a few meals straight up and then going through the menu and choosing more later as it can take a bit longer for food when busy.
Personally I found this restaurant way too hectic in terms of service and seating arrangements. The acoustics were awful and is in desperate need of design techniques to help absorb the overwhelming sounds of other guests. The food was cheap but rather bland. Staff were friendly but not enough of them to go around. Our group was the first to arrive and yet the last to be served. Drinks took half an hour to arrive and that was after being prompted, again. Overall a disappointing experience.
Sushi and sashimi were really fresh and our meal was good value for money! Occasionally it would take a while for us to be served, however it was very busy and since it was “all you can eat” I was happy to digest between dishes. Food was yum, will be returning.
Food Great and helpful service. Had the "all you can eat " menu" -outstanding!!! Big noisy barn, noisy and detest 2 sittings, we were rushed out as second sitting poured in. Will go again, but 2 sittings makes me look for alternatives, and there are a few in Brunswick.
