Ranked #49 of 70 Restaurants in Abbotsford
Price range: US$9 - US$39
Cuisines: Japanese
Description: Shizuku is not your average Japanese restaurant. That’s partly because we serve the best ramen in Melbourne, and partly because our menu has a creative flair. Unlike other Japanese venues we also offer a serious selection of craft beer. And while we could go on about how ramen and beer is the perfect pair, there’s only one way to discover it for yourself. Flavour comes first, whether we’re talking about our traditional ramen stock that takes a whole day to make or the unique brews we import from all over Asia. Not sure which beer, sake or umeshu matches your food? Just ask. The Shizuku kitchen team serves innovative dishes with a traditional touch. Solo diners can take advantage of ramen lunch deals, groups can book ahead and feast on Izakaya-style sharing dishes (try the karaage popcorn chicken), and we can organise everything from Japanese gyoza to ramen burgers for private functions. And if you’re wondering what’s in a name, Shizuku is Japanese for ‘droplets’.

Ordered off Uber eats and it took 2.5hrs to arrive and was in transit for 1hr. No response or answer the entire time from the restaurant. The overpriced food arrived cold, soggy and disgusting as expected. Terrible service - don’t waste your money.

Waited over two hours for my UberEats order with no answer from this restaurant through the mobile number or the land line on the restaurants website. Uber advised the restaurant uses their own drivers and proceeded to cancel order as they could not get in contact with them either. Restaurants with this type of service do not stay in business very long especially in Melbourne.

Ordered what we thought was food via Slup Shop - Laske & Ramen. Not sure if this is the restaurants name or not?! Ordered three Laske's and Bao. Food arrived and the Noodles were not cooked much to our suprise. I then checked the website to see if i had missed this important fact. This was not the case, there was no mention that the noodles would be delivered raw. After 30+ minutes of calling the restaurant I finally got on to somone who had no interest in my complaint of raw food and offered no resolution or assistance.

A couple of months ago I was receiving deliveries of Ramen from SOKO Ramen in Sunshine. via Menulog. For some reason there started to be little advertisement clippings in my bag telling me that from now on I should order SHIZUKU via the SHIZUKU app and type FREEDEL to get free delivery. I am not sure if these companies are related or why they were suggesting to order from another venue.

I've ordered from SHIZUKU a few times now and every time has been more disappointing than the last. The broth is weak and when you let it cool or set you see that 90% of it is just fat. In the past, you could let the broth cool and there would be a layer of fat that settled on top of the broth but now its just fat top to bottom. NO flavour, just fat. The broth is the4 key factor in Ramen, so if youre broth is no good, then the ramen is no good.

On top of that they were charging 2AUD for an extra egg; a whole soft boiled egg. As of last night, they are now charging 2AUD for HALF AN EGG.

Their mixed vegetables which are usually very exotic in variety are now just basic additions.

Dear SOKO, is this you? Is someone poaching your business?

The worst ramen I have ever attempted to eat and then regretfully proceeded to bin.
