Located just south of the river along Collins Road, Yuki Japanese Restaurant serves up all the sashimi, sushi, teppanyaki, tempura, curry and bento you can imagine six days a week. Yuki is fully licensed and home to a wide variety of Japanese Sake, wines, and imported Japanese beer. With such a large selection of meals and drinks, it’s sure to satisfy everyone’s cravings. We recommend trying the selection of teriyaki – each dish is prepared with the special homemade Yuki teriyaki sauce. 

Hiss & Smoke – Yagan Square

This suggestion comes from Perth Happenings writer Andrea. Inspired by the gastropub culture in Japan, Hiss and Smoke specialises in Japanese street eats and charcoal-grilled skewers. Expect teppan-charred goodness like saucy savoury noodle pancakes, butter garlic fried rice and delicious bite size skewers – Andrea recommends the okonomiyaki! They also have a very generous cocktail menu which is perfect for a night out.

Ohnamiya – Applecross & Myaree

Established in 1998, Ohnamiya is a stylish restaurant, providing comfortable dining for all patrons! Chef Ken-san established Ohanimya to share his love of Japanese food and aspires to provide guests will freshly prepared home-style food without cutting corners. We recommend giving their vegetable tempura udon a try, served with a mixed vegetable tempura. Both stores also do online orders for pick up where you can pre-order your meal before you arrive. This is great if you’re in a hurry or phone lines are busy trying to get this delicious food!

Located on the Cale Street strip, the restaurant offers authentic Japanese food and is great for casual family dining as well as special occasions.

They have a great selection of meals available but we recommend making sure you give their traditional octopus sashimi a try.
