    Ochacha feels as comfortable as being in a Japanese home. We are regulars because we know the food and service will be as excellent as always. Highly recommended.

    The place is small & cozy, followed with traditional izakaya decorations. Foods are worth waiting & the services are excellent. Overall a very good experience in here.

    This family run restaurant has plenty of charm and is great value for money. Authentic Japenese dishes the best I have ever tasted. and the soy milk pudding was divine. A must visit when in Cairns.

    One little restaurant hidden away from the main street. Operated by 2 chefs and 1 waitress. We had tapas for food and was versatile and good and nice atmosphere.

    Food was amazing and the restaurant felt like we were in Japan, not knowing when we can travel again it’s nice to know we have found a piece of Japan in our own backyard. Definitely be back ????
