In the heart of China Town is Shou Sumiyaki, introducing diners to the other side of Japanese cuisine. Sumiyaki dining is based on a Japanese ‘smokeless charcoal grill’, where customers can barbeque their own meats for an enjoyable dining experience. Wagyu beef is a specialty at Shou, but there is also a range of sashimi and seafood, as well as an extensive range of Sake and Japanese-inspired cocktails.

Shou Sumiyaki - User Reviews

Lyg0n:

Happened on to this lovely yakiniku and sake restaurant by mistake on the way to a footy match in Melbourne one afternoon. Was looking for another more reviewed place also in Little Bourke St, but it was closed and Shou Sumiyaki was open, I had a look and smelled the place, looks and smells good. Result? Immensly enjoyed the place. Authentic in most ways. Great selection of sakes with knowledgeable service. Good set menu and I had great Tasmanian fresh oysters. These oysters were as good as I had in Hiroshima. My old school mate I had not seen in decades blurted: "I am feeling that I 'm in the rockpool in Portsea!" The meat was very good also. Most impressed was the service! Very rare in Australia we get such service - especially in Chinatown. And this is not a formal place like Florentinos. It was very busy, it was 80% full. The waitress was very accommodating answering my questions about their ingredients etc.. my Australian mate was very uncomfortable as he was afraid I was pushing it a little bit. But the staff were from Japan, students or on a working vacation. I made sure that they were Japanese and they are the best at hospitality! In Shou Sumiyaki it was no exception in terms of Japanese hospitailty. Enjoyed it so much I went again to bring my family for a farewell meal there, and the second time around the place and service did not disappoint. Great place to have a meal and sake in winter in Melbourne!review  31/03/2012

What a great restaurant! We went to have dinner at the Shou Sumiyaki in Chinatown, it's really cosy and at the table right in the middle you have a grill where you cook what you order. I really recommend the Wagyu beef and the dumplings ( the best ones I've ever eaten). The service was also excellent all I can say is GO THERE!! Thankyou for giving us such a special dinner to remember our visit to Melbourne!review  08/02/2012
