DETAILS
PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS
Priding itself on being as authentic a Japanese restaurant as Melbourne can muster, with the quality equal to that found in Tokyo, Shoya is many restaurants rolled into one. Set over four storeys, you may choose to dine in the fine dining area, sushi bar, traditional Horigotatsu area, BBQ table, one of the karaoke dens or the Japanese-style executive club lounge. Service may vary from room to room as does the cuisine, but rest assured that whatever the outcome you're guaranteed a true Shoya experience.

The owner/master chef Shigeo Nonaka refers to his cooking as ‘nouvelle wafu', a modern take on authentic Japanese fare. At lunchtime choose a set menu option such as the matsu set comprising such things as sashimi, sushi, grilled fish and savoury egg custard, with smokeless BBQ sets also offered. From the traditional dining menu choose an appetiser of broiled duck Shoya style: thinly sliced and delicately cooked with a tangy homemade sauce. Follow with a main of Wagyu steak, made from beef that has been grain fed for 500 days using a Japanese method, or the scampi kinoko yaki: grilled fresh scampi with miso paste and mushrooms. Finish with the Shoya fudge cake made with chocolate and Daigino sake. The concise Australian wine list is complimented by Japanese spirits and a large sake selection.
