Overpriced food for small serves. Extremely noisy to the point that patrons need to raise their voice to hear each other.

3rd time I’ve been. The food quality has decreased. The waitress we had was clearly new. Kept getting a reminder from a staff member that we could only have the table for a set timeframe however we would have been done a lot sooner if so much time wasn’t wasted waiting for our waitress.

The food is nice and looks very pretty - but pricy.
We had a good time and the staff is very friendly, welcoming and looks after you.

Fantastic food - best karrage chicken I have ever had (like, major YUM). Field mushrooms with mango salsa a surprise delight. Every dish was great. Service was friendly and efficient. Definitely returning and very happy to recommend.

While the food was definitely good, I feel it was a little too overpriced. There are many places with the exact same vibe in the restaurant and quality of food for a quarter of the price.

Heard good things about this place from a mutual friend, unfortunately for the price the food didn't match up. The sashimi was lovely and the yakitori zucchini was nice however the yakitori chicken and beef were sub-par for the price. Not much flavor to either. The curry beef felt more suited on a lunch menu and upon serving the beef portions were adequate however in two huge chunks that you'd have to either mash up or have a mouth big enough to take a bite out of.
Salmon teriyaki don was quite nice, but still perhaps more suited on a lunch menu.
Their mains were all paired with brown rice which is understandable from their creative point of view but a choice of white rice would've been nice.

lt was my first time dining here and the food and atmosphere was amazing. We were seated in the (exclusive looking) gondola table which was a nice surprise which my date thoroughly enjoyed. I felt as though we were sometimes overlooked in terms of drink service as the table is quite hidden and out of waiters line of sight. The music level inside the gondola is also a tad too loud - aside from that amazing!

I also appreciated how the waiter looked at both myself and my date when presenting the bill - Very forward thinking
Thanks for the night

Great venue and food. Very accommodating to dietary requirements. Only issue is that we ordered a banquet as we were a large group and gelt very rushed to get out. Spoiled the experience. Perhaps don’t offer a large banquet for a 1:45min sitting.

The staff were very attentive and kind. The food was great, it was a bit pricey but it was worth it. There was a wait for some of our food, about 25 minutes after the first three dishes came out but it wasn’t the biggest issue. Overall it was a good night and we enjoyed going to Ichi Ni

When I made the booking for 11pax, I was told that we could only have the table until 8:30. Strange, considering we are such a large group and were there for both dinner and drinks. I shrugged my shoulders and proceeded with the booking. Upon arrival, I was reminded that the table would need to be made available again at 8:30. Thank you for the reminder. Between sitting down, ordering, eating, and leaving, I was reminded another 4 times that I would need to leave by 8:30pm. Do you know how annoying it is, to be spending money in an establishment, only to be reminded that you need to leave? VERY ANNOYING.

Also, the Gyu yakitori was very dry. The sushi roll that was on our 'chef's selection' sushi plate, had something VERY chewy in it (I've eaten a lot of sushi, and chewy fish always means badly cut fish).

To top it all off, your website is very misleading. There was no karaoke on every floor, because apparently you need to book that too! Advertise that this requires an additional booking, or don't advertise it at all.

The only saving grace was that the ambience was great, and the cocktails were good too.

I've been to here a couple of time, fell in love with the food. Came here on Saturday and was super disappointed. The service you had to hunt for, the food was so average, I know restaurants have off nights , but the gyoza were cold in the middle and the karaage chicken was very dry. On the up side the desserts were beautifully presented and tasted amazing.

Good portion sizes on the Ume meal, surprisingly filling and tastes amazing.
Team is accomodating, as well as helpful and there whenever you need.
Sometimes a bit hard to get their attention but that always comes with busy places.

We have an excellent time at Ichi Ni Nana, the food was top notch and so was the sake. Kurtis served us and he was exceptionally friendly and attentive, and he went above and beyond to make us all feel right at home.

Amazing service, food and vibe. We picked this placed based on its vegan options, but there are plenty of meat options.
One of the more classy restaurants in Melbourne and it has a super authentic Japanese feel.

Will be returning again soon.

Thank you Ichi Ni Nana Izakaya for everything.

Ps. Prices are super balanced considering the quality/ taste and presentation.

The restaurant itself is absolutely beautiful. The menu was strange for Japanese food (brown rice?) and it was extremely expensive. We only stayed for two cocktails and some renkon chips which were both nice.
