WELCOME TO MUSASHI IZAKAYA
"Musashi" is located on 181 Russell st, Melbourne, VIC.

IZAKAYA is a drinking establishment with foods and people drink and share foods. People often call IZAKAYA a Japanese tapas bar. Yes at IZAKAYA, drinking is a must and you find what to eat with drinks. We wanted to show people the joy of sharing and enjoying drinks with friends. So we named our restaurant IZAKAYA because we wanted to establish this IZAKAYA category aside from regular Japanese restaurants.

So IZAKAYA iko! (“Let’s go to IZAKAYA!”)

    Waitress asked if we had any dietary requirements upon arrival & we asked if any gluten free options. She responded with a roll of the eyes & an impolite 'no.' We were given a receipt & told to go upstairs to booth #4 but weren't advised of the ordering system, which was a QR code on dthe docket. We worked that out soon enough but would have preferred physical menus to also puruse. Three of us ordered at same time but food came out separately. My meal was delicious. My friend didn't enjoy her ramen as little meat that was fatty. It was quieter upstairs which we enjoyed & overall I would go back for the food but lower my expectations on friendly service...we were there for the food anyway! :) And great value for money.

    Good service and friendly staff. Food is ok. Taste a bit salty in my garlic noodles. Maybe l order a plain one next time. Would like to try something else in my next visits. They have lots of different things on the menu

    Service was pretty bad. Had to ask 3 times just to get some plates to share the dishes. Water ran out and was not refilled. You order via an app so there’s no opportunity to ask questions. We were given a limited time at the table despite making a booking which made it feel rushed. No split bills. But food was overall very tasty.

    Booking was smooth. It was a busy Friday night, so there was a little bit of difficulty getting beer glasses, and used paper cups for a while. The ramen tasted great. The wahgy slices were to point.

    Lucky we had a booking as when we turned up there was a line to get a table (a very good sign). We got seated straight away and ordered our food via the QR code. Food was served quickly and was delicious! We both ordered the classic pork ramen and will be going back again to get our fix!

    YUM. The original Hakata Ramen is simple but the broth is soo dang tasty. It was a big serving size and I tried my best but couldn’t quite finish it! Can’t wait to go back to try some of the other things in the menu.

    Efficient friendly staff and a nice typical everyday Japanese style layout. Myself and a friend have been trying various Ramen options around town and I can report the broth here is rich and flavoursome, one of the hallmarks of a good ramen. Quality ingredients and generous portions. We over-ordered with tacoyaki and gyoza which for two was a little much along with the ramen. Can recommend as a quality everyday dinning experience.

    I firmly believe these guys are the best ramen in Melbourne. Really flavourful, thick, heavy broth, which is unusual for a ramen but a welcome texture. The Red Dragon is a must-try spicy pork ramen you'll never forget.
