Best Known For
Miso marinated black cod, grilled and served with salad.
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 ambience. 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 Porterhouse carpaccio, shio koji and wasabi vinaigrette, garlic and sesame oil; before mains like konbu beef eye fillet steak, seaweed butter and sautéed greens, or teriyaki duck fillet and steamed bok choy.
