Restaurant Review: Akachochin

Location: 33 Dukes Walk, South Wharf
Phone: 03 9245 9900
Cuisine: Japanese, Sushi
Overall Impression: 7.5/10
An elegant and modern Tokyo-style bar, Akachochin serves authentic Japanese cuisine presented in a modern way.
I was spoilt by fellow S***** S***, Alanna with a lunch at Akachochin recently (apparently it was my “half birthday”!).
We decided to share two different $20 lunch sets. One from option 1 and the other from option 2.
Option 1

As Alanna, didn't feel like sashimi, the restaurant was accomodating enough to swap her sashimi with a fresh salad.
Option 2

While there were many highlights to our lunch at Akachochin, of particular note were the chirashi and the teriyaki chicken.
The chirashi contained a wonderful variety of raw delights. Every piece of fish was extremely fresh and plump.
When the dish arrived, the chicken was glistening with the teriyaki sauce and the soft white flesh looked succulent and tender. We were pleased to find that the dish tasted better than it looked. The slices of chicken were cooked to perfection - it was absolutely delicious.
Akachochin does a fantastic lunch special. Generous servings assure that your stomach will be satisfied and the speedy service ensures you will get back to the office within the hour. At $20, the lunch sets exceed expectations both in quality and quantity, ranking favourably to the lunch sets offered at other city Japanese restaurants such as Kenzan, Shoya, Yu-U and Hako.
