Kinya Japanese Restaurant Docklands Melbourne

Visiting Melbourne these days has more on offer than ever, in particular their restaurants. Apart from the obvious places to eat they also have many small restaurants that are worth a visit. Some are in Hardware Lane and some are just in small lanes throughout the city.

This time my business client wanted to go to a Japanese restaurant in the new Docklands area where the convention centre is. They are still doing some building there but it will be the next restaurant district once completed.

He had tried this place once before and decided I may like it considering I love Japanese food. the Restaurant is called Kinya and is quite a traditional Japanese with an excellent fit out. We started with Tempura prawns, a spinach dish and a Asali Chawan Mushi which was steam egg custard with clams and Japanese mushrooms.

We then had a mix platter of Sushi and Sashimi and finished it off with Golden Fish which was grilled marinated snow fish with the chefs special miso. The fish was cooked to perfection and had a smooth finish with that sweet miso taste. The skin was very well caramelised and crispy which was the piece I left for last.This is their signature dish and was sensational. The sushi plate was like a work of art and needed to be included on my food blog for all those people who click on my site. The scallops you can see were wonderful, juicy and tasty, not sure what the sauce was but it was also a little sweet. How good does the large prawn look !

The service and food was excellent and I will be going back. I rate them 9/10 for service and 8/10 for food and the experience. When ordering the sashimi plate ask for the special scallops to be included.
