Food not as good as Nobu, but scallop Hollandaise really stands out. The service is immaculate. It's okay to give it try.

Ocha Overview

Opening in 1994 in Kew and operating as a small restaurant seating just 30 guests, Ocha gained a loyal following and eventually moved to the refurbished Bee Hive complex in Hawthorn, providing artisan style Japanese food to a captivated Melbourne crowd. A purposefully understated dining room emanates the same original charm of the first venue with cream walls and sandy tones giving warmth to a smart ambiance. Traditional techniques are used to create flavours that dance across the palate, designed with imaginative touches and contemporary Japanese flavours. Begin with smaller plates of a soft shell crab slider with Japanese slaw, kimchi and sriracha mayo on a brioche bun; before mains like miso marinated grilled black cod with salad, or a pork fillet with ginger soy sauce and nashi slaw.

Best Known For

Konbu Beef: eye fillet steak, seaweed butter and sautéed greens.
