Food was delicious! Great variety and wonderful service. Will definitley be back!
always amazing staff are lovely and food is amazing we really enjoy it
Noise level extremely loud, tables too close together. Otherwise excellent
Great food, reasonably priced but very noisy. Would definitely return.
Love everything here except the noise level. Food is as good as we have had at many different Melbourne Japanese restaurants. Quick ordering with lovely, plentiful staff members, taken down on Ipads with a full menu of everything you would expect and want. Equally quick serving of freshly made, piping hot dishes. No Bain Marie’s here or self serve. The only dish we haven’t enjoyed on our many visits was the vegetable gyozas, Bit mushy for our tastes. Prawn gyozas are fabulous with a nice hint of ginger. Would be nice if they did something about the acoustics, otherwise a big thumbs up. We requested a quiet table with our booking, which incidentally is the one in the corner near the toilets, where we have previously sat. Sounds off putting but is not a drawback in any way. On sms confirmation we changed our request to be close to the aircon as it was a 38 degree day. No problem, extremely obliging and cooling was very good. Observed the people sitting in our previously requested seats tucked in the corner, fanning themselves, so not the best option on a hot night. Give it a try, you shouldn’t be disappointed! Seniors price is a definite bonus!
We have been to Okami Frankston many times and recommended it to friends who have also loved it. The service is great, the food plentiful and very tasty, it is noisy, fun and great value for money being an all you can eat deal. Unlike other all you can eat restaurants you do not have to line up at a Bain Marie with all and sundry pawing at and breathing all over the food you choose from an extensive menu and the food is cooked fresh and brought to your table. The serves are sizeable and presented professionally. If you are looking for good value for money, a good family friendly time and you don't mind noise then make a beeline for any of the Okami restaurants all around Melbourne you will not be disappointed.
We booked the restaurant to celebrate our birthday. We had the earlier sitting and we were shown a table without much delay upon arrival. The staff were helpful, courteous and swift throughout the evening. A menu was left and sufficient time was given to select our dishes. Food came out swiftly too. The quality and quantity were amazing, fresh and tasteful and in adequate portions. Twice more a waiter came to take orders. The last order was close to the start of the second sitting and we had to wait and ask for our order as staff was too busy to set up. Only half of our dessert was brought over in the end. Our main issue though was the level of noise. It is difficult for big spaces to find ways to minimise noise levels. It comes down to having less hard surfaces and incorporate textures in the room that absorb noise. I would recommend the restaurant to people if they like to experience Japanese dining but not if celebrating a special occasion. Top marks for food quality. Staff were lovely.
Restaurant was great. Booked that day online and receive an sms with information and asking if I needed any special requests. Which I did need a high chair and pram space. Which was already for us when we went to our booking. The restaurant even had coloured plastic cutlery, bowl and cup for my son. Which I would of never expected they definitely gave us a bonus for the night. The food was outstanding, quick and hot. They really care for their products. We will certainly be dining here again. Can not recommend them enough Certainly recommend booking a table as it was full 10 minutes after opening.
Service was excellent, with the dishes arriving quite quickly after ordering and continuing to arrive in due course. We enjoyed the delicate flavour of some dishes, the various techniques of cooking and the overall appearance of the dishes. We tried dishes we hadn't had before as well as some more well known. One dish we didn't like very much but that was probably more due to our palates than anything being wrong with the food. Overall, the food was excellent, the ambiance was lively and the company terrific. Our guests were impressed and we were delighted to introduce them to Okami.
My wife and I arrived at 5:30 and although the restaurant had a few customers it was by no means busy. The food was delicious however our orders arrived one or two at the most at a time. I thought this must be how it is done and then I saw the tables next to us getting 4 -5 servings. On more than one occasion we had to ask the waiting staff where our food was. I ordered chicken and never received it so I ordered it again and got it 45 minutes later. This may not mean much but my wife is gluten free and So therefore we ordered different meals. All her meals came out and not mine. She had even ordered and received her second order while I was still waiting. I watched people at tables who had arrived after use getting the same food I ordered while mine had still not arrived. It made my wife feel bad because she was eating while I waited. We will go back again mainly because the food was delicious and maybe if I arrive near the end of the first setting and not the start my food might arrive quicker.
