Japanese Restaurants

Posted July 16th, 2009 in Eat Out in Perth - Japanese Food - 8 Comments »

Wow it was a bit of shock to hear that Mr Samurai closed their business… Although I wasn’t their regular customer, as I don’t really go to city often except for shopping and visiting JP Consulate etc, I kind of miss their food.  Nothing special, really.  Just that I know there’re many local people who loved Mr Samurai food.

Now, where can we get Japanese food for reasonable prices?  Ummm there are a few, actually.  Lots of Japanese food places are owned by non-Japanese, but some of them serve nice food.  Here is a list of casual Japanese eating places around Perth, which I recommend to you 🙂

I don’t bother listing down any Japanese food shops at food courts as it’s going to be a enormous number.
(except for Taka’s Kitchen Fremantle)
※ Taka’s Kitchen:
City – cnr Barrack st & Willington st, Perth
Shaft Lane – Shaft Lane, Murray st, Perth
Fremantle – Old Shanghai Food Court (Henderson st), Fremantle
※ Jaws Sushi :
Myer – Shop 16 Forrest Chase, Perth
London court (takeaway only)

※ Sundays Everyday – 6-43 Halme Court, Myaree

    Closed down? That’s so sad! That was one of my (and many other people’s) favorite place to eat!
    They always had so many people eating there everyday, I find it amazing that they had to close down.
    Something to do with the owners maybe?
    Do you consider Jun to be expensive? I guess compared to other Izakaya it can seem a bit pricey…. but I really like the food there, so I’m happy to pay ^_^

    I like to eat in Japanese restaurants even though I live in Japan and eat Japanese food everyday, so I can understand how much you guys miss Samurai!
    それにしても…前のBaked Scotch Eggよ!!

    Yes I know! It was a surprise to me too.
    The place was filled with people every time I went there. So shame..

    Restaurant Jun? I think their price is pricey considering the size of food… When I ordered an entree I was bit disappointed by the serving size. I guess I just had to compare with ordinal izakaya in Japan :p

    I’m surprised to know that foreign people also enjoy the food at Jun. I thought their food and price were acceptable to only Japanese business men.. :p The food is nice though, I agree. Nice place to experience “izakaya” environment.

    I know lots of people (not only Japanese) miss Mr Samurai 🙁

    Mr Samurai was the most famous/popular place for Japanese students/working holiday makers in Perth, because of the notice board. Many people go there to exchange the info such as accommodation, job vacancies etc.
    The place was always full, with lots of Japanese, other foreign students/travelers and local people. The price and volume of food was loved by many people.

    Thanks for your compliment on baked scotch egg 🙂
    It’s very easy to make, I’m sure you can make it too!
    I really wanna eat your home-grown vegetables and bagels!!! (^x^*)

    What?? Mr Samurai closed down???

    I’m not a huge fan, but I did like it cos it was cheap and actually not too bad for what you pay. I mean the food wasn’t A-Grade, but it was decent for like $5.

    They certainly didn’t close for the lack of money. I remember it being busy every day – you even had to share the ‘private tables’ with strangers and people from all walks of life – from backpackers, businesspeople, police, to Japanese people.

    It’s a shame that it’s closed down. 🙁

    Yes it’s a surprise, isn’t it? Considering how busy the shop was everyday.

    I guess people’s next target may be Taka’s Kitchen?? it’s in the centre of Perth city, it’s reasonable price and taste ok.

    Oh! And there is Banzai in Leederville which has hitori-sukiyaki which is sukiyaki for one and it’s lots of food and it’s pretty cheap and SOOOOOO tasty and the girls that work there are really cute! ^_^

    What is that Sundays Everyday place like? I think there are a lot of Asian style places there (Utopia that does buns and cakes and there’s a BBQ style place there too) on that road in Myaree. Is it true?

    Hi Bishonencam

    The waitress in Banzai are really cute! I wonder the owner hires girls depending on their look .. but I guess it’s a good technique to get more customers :p

    Sunday Everyday is like a take-away shop. You can sit down and eat inside (or outside) but the place is really small. This place has been busy as lots of workers around Melville go there to pick up food. I like their food, pretty cheap and big volume. If you like meat have a big stomach you’ll love Kara-age Don. Pretty huge.
    They don’t open on Sundays.

    On Halme Court there are “Sundays Everyday”, “Buffet King” (Chinese type food), “Nishi Japanese”(owned by Indonesian), a Bali food restaurant, a Chinese restaurant (I forgot the name but I’ve been there before), and a Koren BBQ place next to Utopia.

    It’s like a complex, you can try some of the restaurants 🙂
