Contemporary Japanese restaurant and cocktail bar near St Kilda

Step through a set of doors on Greville St and step onto the streets of Tokyo. Only a short journey from St Kilda will take you to a slice of Japan at our restaurant, cocktail and karaoke bar. Visit Tokosan for quality Japanese food with a contemporary twist, set against a backdrop of eye-catching Japanese street art murals.

Whether you want to share a meal with friends or your partner in our restaurant, kick back in the Japan-inspired beer garden for a few ice-cold beers, or sing your favourite karaoke songs in our karaoke room while sipping on bespoke cocktails, there’s a space at Tokosan for every mood.

Restaurant and cocktail bar

Tokosan focuses on creating special moments between friends. From our karaoke room, to our easy-share food platters, Tokosan is about friendships (new and old). We serve contemporary Japanese foods such as sushi, skewers, oysters and an assortment of meats cooked to perfection.

Our bar stocks a wide range of quality liquors from across the globe, but of course we always make sure to keep a stock of popular and niche Japanese spirits and alcohols. At Tokosan, every time is Suntory time.

With the owners being huge Quentin Tarantino fans, our bespoke cocktails are named after a number of Kill Bill characters, from Sofie Fatale (sake, mandarin vodka, grand Marnier, and orange juice), The Bride (beefeater, mixed berries, lime, and sugar), or perhaps Boss Tanaka (Maker’s Mark, apricot brandy, lemon juice, and ginger ale).

Beer garden

Our covered beer garden is a relaxing space for cold drinks and good chats. With Japanese inspired wall art and interior, colourful lights, our beer garden stays warm and cosy all year round.

Our karaoke room

Karaoke has been a long-spanning favourite when going out in Japan and the rest of South East Asia, and it is finally beginning to catch on in Melbourne. Whether you’re an experienced karaoke performer, or new to the stage, our intimate karaoke room with its wide screen well-stocked library and quality sound system is the perfect location to let loose.
