Further Information

Tokyo Kitchen Sakae’s Church Street premises boast a striking interior and a sunny courtyard for alfresco dining. The sushi and sashimi here are all made fresh to order – it’s well worth the wait for what might be some of Brighton and Melbourne’s best value and most artful nigiri and raw fish sculptures. Kushiyaki skewers are another popular option among diners looking for quick and simple Japanese fare to accompany a drink or two, and those watching the rise of Nepalese cuisine will notice that the famous momo dumplings even make an appearance on the menu.

Tokyo Kitchen Sakae’s light and healthy salads like the simple tofu wakame salad or the heartier grilled Wagyu beef salad offer a fresh taste sensation, while deliciously deep-fried gyoza are handmade at Tokyo Garden’s Brighton restaurant and are again great with a Japanese beer or chilled sake. If you’re a Melbourne foodie trying to tick off as many Asian restaurants as possible, order up one of the chef’s specials. Fresh oysters are spiked with a special lemony sauce or given the tempura treatment, while multigrain, inside-out California rolls come served with grilled scallops. Unmissable is the traditional salmon nan-ban tsuke, deep-fried salmon and a simple selection of fresh vegetables served with a vinegary soy sauce.

A great family meal for my wife's birthday. Fresh food (especially the sashimi), Asahi on draft and friendly service. We will be back! Thank you.

The food was exquisite, staff were very friend and the venue was cosy and quite. This was undoubtedly the best Japanese I have ever tasted and I will definitely be recommending this restaurant to everyone. Can't wait for my next Tokyo Kitchen taste adventure.

We had a great time. The food was awesome. We asked to move outside and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. We'll be back.

Always a great experience - but make sure that you try to a bit adventurous and try things on the menu that are different from what you 'think' Japanese food should be.

Wonderful, fresh Japanese with a mix of traditional and some more inventive dishes. The miso cod was a standout. The wagyu salad I could leave behind but then again I think wagyu is overrated in general. Cosy atmosphere and friendly service too.

Great authentic Japanese food. Consistently good. The wait staff are a bit slow but as soon as you catch their eye, they come over but they don't come near you otherwise.

This is a fantastic place. The food is excellent - particularly the miso cod. Probably the best I've had in Australia. Staff and service are great. Very friendly, helpful and attentive.
