About Sakana

さかなについて (sakana ni tsuite)

A Japanese term referring to food eaten as an accompaniment to alcohol, originating from the word ‘saka’ (sake) and ‘na,’ meaning food.

At Sakana, chef Kazuki Tsuya (formerly Kazuki’s Daylesford and Kazuki’s Carlton) brings a modern pan-Asian twist to Japanese flavours and the finest local produce, serving shareable plates in a casual space, to old friends and new guests.

Reflecting the Japanese philosophy of ‘sakana,’ the dishes on our menu are even better when paired with something to sip, and best enjoyed over lively, happy tables. Welcome, and itadakimasu, or, ‘let’s eat!’


フードメニュー (fūdo menyū)

DINE-IN & TAKEAWAY – On Friday June 5 we will reopen our dining room to welcome our guests. Our takeaway service will continue until further notice.

From fond childhood memories of ripe, juicy tomatoes picked and eaten directly from the garden, to the perfect sweetness of honeydew melons cultivated by his Grandfather, and the Akita Komachi rice grown in his hometown of Akita, the influence of early food experiences can be felt throughout Chef Kazuki’s new menu. He hopes it incites joy and surprise, and creates new memories of your own.

“Our menu is a cultural mix, combining speciality Japanese ingredients and techniques with beautiful Australian produce – as local as we can find.”
– Chef Kazuki Tsuya

Drinks List

ドリンクリスト (dorinku risuto)

We’ve created our drinks list with the best type of eating in mind. The eating accompanied by drinking.

For Japanese people it is customary to say “KAMPAI” at the start of meals with drinks. This is often voiced with enthusiasm as glasses are raised, kanpai translates to “dry-cup” — the Western equivalent would be “cheers” or “bottoms up”.
