Japanese food is popular all over the world and particularly here in Melbourne because it’s flavours are bold, the techniques it’s prepared with are brave and the way it looks on the plate is very often beautiful. All of this is what you can expect from Shinoki, a very cool and very delicious Japanese restaurant that goes far beyond just a bit sushi and ramen. You can expect all the highlights of the Japanese kitchen at this place and you’ll find it nestled on Toorak Road in South Yarra, a definite hotspot in this part of Melbourne. Reserve a table now.
Well thought through menu/course. Each dish is made with utmost care. Staff are attentive and for a restaurant of that calibre, reasonable price. Definitely visit again.
We had an Autumn experience at Shinoki (Four Seasons) sampling 14 different dishes and 7 different sake’s and it was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful, I don’t think enough people know about this hidden gem as it was not packed. The venue is quiet and conversation friendly and I look forward to trying the 10 person private banquet room with sunken table on a future visit. Probably not suitable for a quick casual dinner but if you want a memorable food experience with great conversation then I would highly recommend.
HIghly recommend Shinoki! Good quality and value, lovely presentation and the sushi and sashimi were really fresh! the Eel rice bowl was the best we've had in Melbourne. Staff are extremely friendly and attentive.
