The Warabi Omakase Dining Experience

The Kappo 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, Kappo directly translates to ‘cut and cook' and celebrates the chefs' craftsmanship and precise preparation techniques.

The full Omakase experience, multi-course 'Impression' menu is $285 per person.

As we offer an Omakase experience, we would like to share with you our guidelines and appreciate your understanding.

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 5:30pm or 8pm.

We require a minimum of 48hours notice for any cancellation, reduction in diners or change of dates. Thereafter, the full cost of the food menu ($285) will be charged. 

The Warabi dining experience is only able to accommodate guests aged 12 years and older. 

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. 


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 n 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.  

A broader pairing menu is also available, offering sake, wine, and craft beers at an additional $180 per person.
