Forest Hill Japanese Restaurant

Isshin Japanese House is an “ALL YOU CAN EAT” Japanese restaurant, located at:
320-324 Canterbury Road, Forest Hill VIC 3131


Isshin Japanese House offers an all-you-can-eat experience, serving freshly made Japanese cuisine made to order, at an affordable price, with special deals available for children. Isshins’ all-you-can-eat banquet is only $42.95 per person, $12.95 for children aged from four to 10 years of age and free for children under three. To keep it fair, children’s special prices require a minimum of two adult banquet meals, so bring mum and dad and enjoy a meal with the entire family!

For group bookings of 10 or more people, we recommend pre-booking a pre-set menu to be able to serve you efficiently. Also, by serving a pre-set menu, slow eaters don’t miss out to faster eaters (not uncommon with food this tasty!). After the pre-set menu has been served, individuals are still able to order their own favourite dishes from the menu. Now that’s handy!


A revolution in all you can eat banquet dining. Fresh Japanese cuisine prepared to order using only the freshest ingredients!
A unique dining concept by renowned Japanese chef Jack Wang

Our Philosophy

How we work?

Meals are prepared quickly, using only the freshest, highest-quality ingredients. This unique dining experience takes you on a culinary journey through various regions of Japan, represented by many small and exciting servings over the course of a two hour session. You can try many different meals and although the individual servings are small, you will leave thoroughly satisfied without the guilt of feeling bloated at the end of the night. A really enjoyable (and natural) way to eat.

The all-you-can-eat banquet is run in two-hour sessions and features a great variety in food from seafood, sushi and sashimi to meat and vegetable dishes and teppanyaki, which can be ordered repeatedly. As we are very mindful of waste to keep our prices low, any food wasted in excess of 100gram will be charged at the normal price.

How to order?

“Order as you go” customers can order a number of times, trying various meals as many times as they like. All the food is freshly cooked as you order with meals presented as soon as it is ready… there is no “Main”.

Last orders are called at 7pm and 9pm respectively, depending on the session time you choose on either Friday or Saturday night.

Isshin also offers an a a la carte menu to compliment the all-you-can-eat banquet, and BYO service for wines only, charging $2.50 per person for corkage.

Isshin is able to offer lower prices, better quality and better value by eliminating excessive food wastage associated with conventional buffet restaurants. This way we can present meals using the HIGHEST quality ingredients, prepared at a standard that is hard to match in any other buffet style restaurant, all at a price that everyone can afford. We run a tight operation with extremely low overheads enabling us to pass these savings on to you. Good for your pocket and good for your tummy!
