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 – Our a la carte menu is share-friendly and our banquet menu is available for someone who want leave it to our chefs to feed you. On Public holidays we offer the banquet menu only.

TAKEAWAY – View our takeaway menu from the link above.

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
