Coming soon


We are a Japanese-inspired restaurant, located in the Nightingale Village, in the heart of Brunswick, Melbourne. We serve traditional Japanese breakfast/lunch during the day (asa) and modern Izakaya dishes at night (yoru), paired perfectly with sake and Jazz, of course.

Opening hours

Asa (breakfast/lunch)
Tue–Fri: 7.30–3.30
Sat–Sun: 8.00–3.30

Yoru (izakaya)
Thu–Sat: 5.00–late

Closed on Mondays

We are a casual venue and allocate part of the restaurant for walk-in diners, so feel free to drop by for a snack, a drink and everything else in between. You can also purchase your favourite sake and housemade condiments at ima Pantry a few doors down.

ima Asa/Yoru pays respect to the Wurund Jeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the lands on which we live, cook, grow and create. We pay respect to their elders, past and present, and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
