Food not as good as Nobu, but scallop Hollandaise really stands out. The service is immaculate. It's okay to give it try.
The best Japanese food I've had anywhere! Love it.
Amazing food. We always let the waiter choose the food and we are never disappointed. Book in early and enjoy the night!
Excellent modern Japanese food and worth it if you can get a table. The steak with Wasabi mash was fantastic. good little restaurant.
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 gyoza dumplings with pork and vegetables drizzled with vinegar soy before delving into mains like the nabeyaki udon with chicken, vegetables, egg and tempura prawns in a rich broth with a side of edamame.
