Cheap and cheerful Japanese food right near Glenferrie Station


Shuji Sushi is a lesser known chain of Japanese restuarants in the Melbourne area that offer a variety of Japanese standard fare.

As with most chains, you don’t expect the best in the way of food, however you do expect consistency and a reasonable price.

Located in the walkway to Glenferrie Station, Shuji Sushi caters primarily to commuters and students at nereby Swinburne University, and can at times be busy.

The menu offers a variety of Japanese dishes, from sushi rolls, bento boxes and your standard stir fries with rice.

On our most recent visit we ordered the Terayki chicken and Bento Box D. The Teriaki was reasonable at the price, but far from the best I’ve eaten. The bento box really seems to be an excuse to offer more Teriaki chicken with a few Japanese style sides: enjoyable but nothing too exciting.

If you accept that you’re not going to get gourmet Japanese food, Shuji Sushi is reasonable, quick eating well located in the heart of Hawthorn. We’ll eat there again (actually, this wasn’t my first visit there) mostly based on the cost, with dishes coming in at around the $10 mark.

2.5 stars out of 5

For: cheap and quick
Against: standard Japanese chain food
