I wish we had this in Sydney. Great food and quick service. Not a place for a quiet meal but more of a 'eat and go' vibe and that was ok.We'd be back again if we're ever in Melbourne again.

A great place to pop in for a quick filling meal. A decent variety of food all for less than $10. I personally found the ginger they add to some of the dishes too strong but it was otherwise great.

After reading the reviews here thought I'd give this a try. I got niku (beef) udon to take away. It was a huge serve. It was ok but not something I would rave about or would remember in a hurry. It was adequate and cheap...More

Ate here 4 times on a 6 day trip to Melbourne, it was so good we just couldn't resist coming back. Especially when a full meal costs just $7.90 and is served within a matter of seconds. Great when you're in a hurry!

This is one of those restaurants in Melbourne that is very casual and one of those places you stop buy for a quick lunch....and when I mean quick, the service is VERY quick. You will order the meal and within 2mins it will be prepared...More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
