The Warabi Omakase Dining Experience
The dining experience at Warabi is a set menu that changes at the discretion of the chef, whose detailed focus is on preparing courses based on the availability of the finest seasonal ingredients. A casual yet refined dining experience, which celebrates the chefs' craftsmanship and precise preparation techniques.
The Warabi Omakase multi-course 'Impression' menu is $285 per person. For reservation times of 5:30 and 6:00PM you are allocated a two-hour dining window. For 8:00 and 8:30PM reservations, both of these options allow for more time to relax and enjoy the experience.
With 48hours notice, we are able to cater for gluten free dietary requirements. Unfortunately at this time we are unable to cater to vegetarian, vegan or pescatarian dietary requests.
The Warabi dining experience is suitable for guests aged 12 years and older.
AHEAD OF YOUR ARRIVAL
We'd like to inform you that all reservations are allocated a two-hour dining window, and there is a 15-minute grace period to hold the table. If arriving after the grace period, a reduced menu will be provided however the price per person will remain the same. The door will open 15 minutes prior to your reservation time, and food will be served from the commencement of the sitting at either 5:30/6:00PM or 8:00/8:30PM.
CANCELLING YOUR RESERVATION
We require a minimum of 24hours notice for any cancellation, reduction in diners or change of dates. Thereafter, the full cost of the food menu ($285) will be charged per guest.
In Japan there is a saying ‘Nihonshu wa ryori wo erabanai' which loosely translates that sake does not clash with food. We have curated a beverage list that sits in harmony with the Warabi nine-course menu, taking you on a journey across your dinner, which reflects the spirit of this ceremonial style of Japanese cuisine.
Our list of sake, beer, cocktails, wine and spirits takes inspiration from the distinct change of seasons in Melbourne and Japan, during which nature produces a vibrant array of colours and contrasts.
This list has been curated in collaboration with Sommelier, Mike Rapajic and the culinary team, a precise pairing ensuring the selection does not clash with the food.
To further extend your Warabi experience we have curated beverage pairing menus, which change with the menu as the it does the seasons.
