Yarraville sushi boat update


Read our first official review HERE.

So Team CTS dropped into the new Yarraville Japanese restaurant today (Saturday, July 6) to get the latest lowdown.

We had another enjoyable chat with Lucy as we admired the fit-out, which is now complete.

No photos, as we don’t want to spoil the surprise – suffice to say it looks absolutely lovely!

Here’s what we learned:

Opening night for the restaurant (at 3 Anderson St) is scheduled to be Monday, July 16.

The phone number is 9787 8690.

The uninspired Little Tokyo name has been ditched for the much more distinctive and evocative Kawa-Sake Sushi Boat & Grill Bar. Kawa means “river”.

The restaurant will seat 46, including outdoor seating. The sushi boat bar will accommodate 16.

Lucy and her colleagues are in the midst of testing all dishes and nailing down every process and routine.

There’s a website – here – but not a lot of action going on there yet.

  1. Open today for lunch – I had a quick peek as the first customers were enjoying the sushi boat fare. The food of which looks absolutely beautiful! Not sure when I’ll make it down there for a feed. I may wait until they’ve settled and choose a quiet time when I can take Bennie.


  2. Just paid a visit there for lunch, the first thing that caught my eye was the huge boat, it was so pretty 🙂 food was brilliant!! i reccommend a visit for the experience, the interior is amazinggg!


    • Thanks, Sophie. This is the number given at Urbanspoon and on the restaurant’s website. I’m sorry it didn’t work out for you, but until the restaurant management changes it or clarifies the situation, that’s as good as I can do. This is a privately-run blog, not a public listings service. 🙂


  3. I was there a couple of weeks ago for dinner with a friend and we both enjoyed the food, but thought it overpriced (as most sushi boat restaurants are). For that reason alone I wouldn’t be eating there regularly but envisage the occasional visit.
