Great little bento place in Collingwood. I personally loved the military katsu curry & the karaage. However, the teriyaki chicken could have been better. Very friendly staff!
One of my favourite Japanese eats. The Katsu curry was amazing, rice was perfect. The cooking feels home made very authentic. The ambiance was cosy and lovely. Food was delicious. Highly recommend.
I love Aka Siro’s! Their speciality is the teishoku – set lunch meal which includes a dish of your choice, bowl of miso soup, salad and unlimited steamed rice. I first visited Aka Siro back in 2014 and have been coming back ever since. Lately I visited twice within 3 week’s! The restaurant is only open for lunch and they don’t take bookings on weekends. Both of my visits in the last 3 weeks we arrived early at 11.40am just so we can be there when the doors open so can get a table straight away. This place always has a queue and forever people coming in. Love the buzz and atmosphere at Aka Siro.


Aka Siro is situated on the corner of Cambridge and Peel Street. The building is very subtle dark grey and the window is lined with bamboo screening. There’s bench seating towards the left as you walk inside – facing the window and also facing the open kitchen. More bench seating surrounds the kitchen towards the right, and table seating lined up against the window. Its small and cosy little restaurant and serves its purpose for simple and confortable Japanese dining experience.


As you walk in the Manager asks how many people, and assigns the staff to direct customers to the table. It’s very orderly and everyone working at Aka Siro speak’s Japanese. So all their conversations are in Japanese it makes you feel like you’re in Japan. All the staff are friendly, courteous and very efficient. Orders are taken on a tiny notepad written in pen, and handed over to the kitchen. I love how its so old school and traditional.


Kara-age Teishoku, $17.00
(crispy chicken thigh fillet marinated with soy and ginger)

Nizakana Teishoku, $18.00
(Fish fillet & green vegetable simmered with soy, sake and ginger)

To be honest, there’s hardly much price difference from when I first visited Aki Siro in 2014 to now – only $1.00 to $1.50 difference. The standard and quality still the same and that’s why they still so popular even to this day. My favourite is the kara-age Teishoku. The chicken is tender and juicy and has beautiful crispy batter with delicious flavour from the soy and ginger.

The salad is always fresh and the steamed rice – I need to find out what rice they use because its soft and fluffy. I seem to always order a second bowl of rice when I visit haha.

The fish fillet is fresh and cooked nicely with soy, sake and ginger. I actually had wanted to order their famous Gyu-teki – pan fried Australian scotch fillet, but ahhh decided to get the Kara-age instead. Next time 
