We tasted the Kambei menu. It was very good. A delightful mixture of taste, texture and presentation. Staff are very attentive and polite. Decor is very cosy and private with plenty of space between tables and the use of bamboo dividers. Overall a memorable experience which we will definitely repeat. 10 out of 10.


Excellent set menu with very quick service and great explanations of each course. Even though it was pretty busy the noise levels were low. We will return


A fantastic place to go for traditional Japanese food. The flavours are sublime and at $39.50 pp for a banquet, it's great value. I am definitely a regular patron.


Always fresh and interesting. Just love the sashimi which I ate for the first time. Will be a regular place for us to eat.


As regular travelers to Japan, we have returned for 3 things - Snow, Culture and Food! Ballarat is cold enough for the snow but only Kambei brings the touch of culture that true Japanese dining entails. The food is fresh, delicious and obviously prepared with the utmost care. The service is exemplary with wait staff attentive and quick to attend. The out-of-the-way location lends itself to a refined, quiet evening that we enjoyed thoroughly.
