"The food here is always nice! A notch higher than over-priced high end japanese restaurants but without the high price tag. I have never been disappointed with any dishes here. They've even managed to make a typical mashed potato dish taste so awesome, probably the best mashed potato in Perth. More people should know of this hidden gem!"

"I been here many times and really like everything on the menu. When the food was served they looked exactly as in the menu which was amazing. Recently, i have been doing takeaway for a Japanese friend who is not quite mobile and she loves the food from this place."

"We had the number 1 roll. Yummy crunch. Also 'complete bento' completely filled the stomach. Unagi eel was smooth & lubricant with omega oils. We liked the food & the friendly service. The horse radish was screaming up the nasal orifices. Bellisimo."

My little kid loves this place, its her new favourite noodle hangout. Seriously , its pretty good Ramen - the pick up and on line flow is really easy . I love the packaging of the takeaways - the little details in each different soup. Lots seriously cool things to chomp through in each dish. Reasonably priced. Parking is hell in that part of Northbridge though - but the effort's well rewarding.

Friendly staff, good food, convenient location.
Visited on a weekend for lunch. 'Miso Hungry for Salmon' Sushi which is their crumbed sushi was very unique. Kids loved the lotus chips which came in a very generous portion. The unagi on the a la carte menu said 'Huge serving' and it did not disappoint. That was one of our favourites. Definitely worth it to take the Bento option for all the extras.
Shimizu may look like your usual Japanese restaurant, but it is quite the opposite! Situated in the heart of William Street, Northbridge, this cozy restaurant offers a special twist to modern Japanese dishes.
We ordered the Teriyaki Salmon Bento, and sides of Giant Potato Fry, Croquettes and a healthy Tonic Miso soup. When our dish arrived, our expectations continued to be exceeded. I have never seen Sweet Potato Chips so BIG!
This place is ideal to satisfy your Japanese cravings, group dinner or just a casual date night.

"My daughter and I enjoyed the most delicious lunch and the staff were so welcoming and accommodating. Can't wait to return as I am still dreaming about their soft shell crab and sushi rolls!"

"Royal seal of approval. My current favourite Japanese food eatery in Perth. Always looks empty except for the endless stream of Uber Eats drivers. Everything on the menu is worth trying. Value for money."

"I have come to place many times, thrice in one week actually and i am very impressed by their servings, service, price and of course FOOD!"
Candice Le Roux 2018 Zomato Review
"I love the food here, and love that there are so many varied vego and vegan options! Another thing that makes this restaurant stand out for me is that the portions are nice and big for a very reasonable price - finally a restaurant that doesn't serve ridiculously expensive puny meals! The service is always lovely, warm and prompt. Just a few of many of my faves: the vego sushi roll (so large and delicious), the veg tempura, and the teriyaki tofu. I like that I still have so many other vegan options that I haven't tried at Shimizu (usually there's only one or two vegan options at other restaurants) and I can't wait!"
Mulumbi K 2016 Yelp Review
"Shimizu cafe makes it damn hard to be a food critic. Food: tasty AF and interesting; chef successfully pulls of great flavours with new takes on Japanese quisine. The service is quite fantasic: cheerful, quick and recommendations were bang on. The venue: cute, cool, open and refreshing like being in a cutecumber (#sorrynotsorry). If you can't tell already, I like this place and was pleasantly surprised at how chea...affordable their prices are. Recommendations: Everything on the menu is good, go eat it now...why are you still reading this? go."
