    One of my favorite Japanese restaurants in Melbourne. We had the sashimi platter and it was so fresh.

    Food is excellent. Service left a bit to be desired. Out of three drinks we ordered they did not have two although they were on the menu. Not good.

    Would have preferred the sashime rice to have been colder and not warm. Otherwise, a pleasant meal cooked perfectly.

    The food is bit too salty. Too much salt and vinegar in sushi.

    Love this Restaurant however our review this time is less than previous number of occasions. Kept waiting at the door to be seated. Carpaccio dish was delicious as were the 4 tapas dishes we ordered. Unfortunately the Main Fillet steak was more than disappointing. It was dry and tasted as though it had been cooked a few days earlier. Not sure either if it was Fillet as texture seemed wrong. All in all, a surprising bad dish. We will go again but hopefully they will correct this dish as it has always been a favourite.

About the restaurant

Turning Japanesa

Up the Malvern Road end on Glenferrie Road you’ll find Japanese restaurant Ayame which attracts a steady drove of diners looking for a tasty sushi and sashimi fix. Platters are available in entree and main servings and include all the welcome suspects like tuna, salmon and kingfish. Smiling, friendly wait staff will happily help you select a range of dishes, ensuring that you don’t over order and have to waddle on out of there. Inside, the walls are painted with cool grey-blue tones and there are back-lit fabric screens throughout which gives the space a true Japanese feel. It’s a comfortable neighbourhood gem that executes Japanese cuisine exceptionally well.

Best dish: agedashi tofu with soft-shell crab
