Nuts chan is located on The Highway in Mount Waverley. From the name, you would never guess what type of food it was. At best, you would guess it's a Chinese restaurant. But it's actually a Japanese take away and restaurant.
We walk through the front end of the restaurant to a tiny area where there are a few tables. We're seated and were going to order some beers, only to find they don't serve beers. So instead we settle for some green tea.
We order a Sushi and Sashimi platter to start. The fish is fairly fresh, nothing spectacular but better than most suburban Japanese restaurants.
The Teriyaki Chicken was fairly tender pieces of grilled chicken drizzled with a teriyaki sauce. Again, this is better than most suburban places.
The Sukiyaki a mixture of tofu, noodles and pieces of beef. The mixture had that slightly sweet taste of a sukiyaki and worked quite well together.
This little suburban restaurant is good for a quick easy meal. The sushi and sashimi is of a good quality and good prices.
