Tomodachi Izakaya & Bar
Wonderful place to eat and the food was fantastic.
Extremely loud, had to wait for our table to be ready as someone was sitting there, food was good server was a little pushy to get our orders and looked like she wanted to leave.
Amazing food as always. Great warm and vibrant atmosphere. One of my favourite Japanese restaurants!
Booking made for 6:15pm, when we arrived we were told we had to leave by 7:30pm. No indication to the time limit when booking was made. Felt rushed with our birthday celebration
Some of the best ramen in Geelong
Upon arrival we were told that the restaurant did not have our booking, and were seated only after showing them the confirmation sms.
After being given the menus we sat there for over 20 minutes without any wait staff returning to take our order, even with attempts to get their attention we were ignored. I can't give any comment about the food as we left without ordering and went to another local restaurant.
Delicious and Authentic Japanese food ...love their bento boxes
Delicious food prepared quickly and presented beautifully. Fantastic little restaurant.
...felt like we transported ourselves to Japan for a moment...
Delicious food! Nice atmosphere and reasonably priced
Delicious and authentic Japanese food, we enjoyed our meal.
Great atmosphere. Would have liked a seat with a back in it. Food was excellent. Service was friendly.
Outdoor dining on a lovely evening, delicious food, good range of sake, wine and beer to match the food, timely delivery of meal, friendly efficient staff.
Absolutely delicious food. Would highly recommend Tomodachi Izakaya to everyone
Great food, would like pictures of food as I like to select from photo
I can’t say their dishes are authentic Japanese, but they were tasty. Food came out nice and fast.
Presentation can be improved.
Excellent food and service. Highly Recommended.
Why would you allow people to book on this app if you are closed..
Was very busy. They must have forgotten one of our three dishes because it came an hour later and wasn't that tasty to be fair.
Not the best food or cocktail, tasty but wasn’t up to authentic Japanese standard
Delicious food, fantastic service and great value.
I had late booking 2045hrs, ordered appetizer which was magic, went to order second course and was told kitchen closed. Reviews would be higher with greater flexibility and being able to work my way through menu. Will give another go with earlier booking
Cannot fault the food, it was delicious. Service could use more attention to detail. Cosy but vibrant atmosphere, wasn't too loud so could still have a conversation.
Dinner was amazing and the staff and service was fantastic. I can’t wait to go back and it will be very soon. The food was fresh and so full of flavour that I have never tasted before. I recommend it to all.
Was excellent food and pleasant environment.
The service was efficient and well timed.
Will certainly go there again
Food was great.. would definitely go back...service could have been a little better.. but overall really enjoyed .. great menu great selection...
The salt and pepper calamari and the lotus root crisps were amazing. The Bentos were special. Yes, it was quiet (Covid rules have some advantages). Not the first time we have been there and certainly will be the last.
Always delicious food. Friendly staff. Food comes out fast. Amazing, highly recommend
Best Food, interesting drinks and great service :)
I will Definitely come back, but strongly encourage a thorough clean and straighten up throughout. If knew the place was going to be much fresher, I would recommend to friends for a quick inexpensive Asian meal.
great food, good service, overall an enjoyable night.
Food was nice and came out reasonably quick, very well priced for what you get
Delicious and affordable. Absolutely loved the bento box! Very affordable and amazing dumplings too.
My friend and I really enjoyed the place, very nice atmosphere and overall hospitality
Freshly made menu, excellent quick service, good variety
We booked online, thanks to Covid there were no seats available, they called me to offer a table at their sister restaurant, BB Chicken and Beer. We were able to order from Tomodachi and it was delivered to our table at BB. We ordered Tacoyaki and Agedashi Tofu, both were excellent. We ordered other food from BB.
Given a 1 star on Ambience as I was not sitting in the restaurant.
Food was great and also good value! When we sat down, the waitress informed us that we only had the table for an hour and then had to leave because they had another booking. I understand that booking times are limited due to covid, but an hour is not really enough time! Most place allow 1 hour 45 mins. If bookings are only for an hour, I should have been told this when I booked the table and I probably would have considered going somewhere else. Service wasn’t great. I had to ask to order a drink and the waitress took quite a while to take our food order which meant, by the time arrived we barely had any time to eat and ended up having lots of food left over by the time we were asked to leave because the next booking had arrived. Shame to waste so much food! Food was tasty though and would go back, hopefully with more time next time!
Delicious ramen and quirky beers to try. Our server wasn't overly warm (friendly) to us but it's understandable in this current climate!
Nice food, forgot one of the meals but brought it out pretty quickly after we asked, 1 hour time slot a bit rushed, but overall good experience. Eggplant dish was too bitter for us (possibly undercooked).
