Malvern's Only Izakaya Style Dining - Wa Modern

(Izakaya - Modern Japanese tavern where people enjoy "casual and friendly" dining with friends.)


When you go out for Japanese Food...

...if you want chefs all accross the counter with master skills of traditional culinary arts , all sushi menus with unpronounceable words all over them, and high-priced sake bottles gorgeously displayed on the alcove cabinets when you go out for Japanese food, our little restaurant is not place to come.

But if you mostly want good, solid, home-cooked meals with tasty sauces made with heartful ingridients inspired by a real Japanese mother, and will trade white table serviette for wet Oshibori (steamed rolled towel) handed on your arrival... I'm sure you'll like the place.

Wa Modern - House of Cosy, Warmth and Feel at Ease like home!

Dining in a restaurant or feeling like home? Having both in Wa Modern, you will surely get the atmosphere.

You will experience our home-style Izakaya dining that the foods are mostly designed to match beer and sake (also good with wines). We suggest you to kick off your dinner with our premium Japanese beer or plum wine (great for aperitif!). As sharing a few dishes, you may want to switch to your favourite wine or sake to add some "harmony" in your mouth.

In this modern Izakaya dining, you can enjoy a variety of dishes such as Smoked Beef Carpaccio , Chilli Pork Gyoza, Eggplant and Tofu Gratin, Miso Duck, Chicken Ramen Salad, and more...those are commonly preferred by all age group of people in Japan.


Do you do BYO? No worries!

We are fully licensed restaurant but if you prefer your own choice of wines, you can bring and enjoy your favourite wines at a nominal fee for corkage.

We also offer a fun and entertaining sake-tasting platter that will purify your soul and mind...You may enjoy sharing with friends.

"Have been here a few times already and seriously, possibly one of the best Japanese I have had in Melbourne. The flavours are authentic and clean, not commercial or conventional. Dishes are very traditional, but with a modern twist. The nasa dengaku, miso duck, salmon tataki, and the prawn mayo cracker are a must try. HIGHLY recommend this place as the price you pay is more than worthy, especially with what is offered!"
