A Japanese Grilled Takeaway

Ozyaki is a Japanese yakitori grill takeaway restaurant located in the heart of Melbourne CBD. Our concept is based on the popular Japanese style skewered chicken street snack. Traditionally, Yakitori is prepared over a charcoal grill. It takes a long time over the grill, and also costly.

Our innovative conveyer belt griller solves many of these problems and more efficient. And also the shorter grilling time translates to juicier and tender food. On top of that, because the grill does not come in direct contact with the food, there are no burnt carbon bits transferred from the grill. It is Healthier!


Our way of grilling yakitori is very different from other methods of grills. We can confidently say ours is a healthier approach to serving you delicious and healthy fresh barbecue.


The shorter grilling time translates to juicier and tender yakitori skewers. And our ingredients, especially the Tare sauce, are prepared following the strict recipe standards and quality ingredients.


You can quickly choose from freshly grilled yakitori skewers from the display, and pair it with steamed rice or vegetable salad to make it into lunch box sets. It is the perfect place for a quick stop from a small bite to full lunch and dinner.

What is yakitori?

In Japanese, Yaki (Grilled) – Tori (Chicken), is a popular skewered chicken street snack which is primarily made from parts of a chicken. But later on, the yakitori stalls start using other meat such as pork, seafood, vegetables such as mushrooms, etc. At Ozyaki – Japanese Yakitori Grill Takeaway, we serve many choices of grilled skewers from meat to vegetables.

Do you have Vegan/Vegetarian Options?

We have a wide range of delicious seasonal vegetables on our menu. We have grilled, fried or even steamed dishes such as Edamame. More over, most of our salads are also vegan & vegetarian friendly. Please remember to ask our staff member for your special dietary requirements and preferences.

Why is Ozyaki healthier?

In most traditional BBQ methods, small bits and pieces such as food drippings and parts of meat/vegetables get stuck on the griller. They were often cooked over an extended period until they are completely burnt. These bits then get transferred back to the food when they come in direct contact with the grill surface. That is NOT healthy!

Our innovative grilling method completely changes the game as our skewers do not come in direct contact with any surface in the process of cooking. And also because grilling time is shorter, our skewers are juicier and healthier!


The Japanese Yakitori is best when it is served fresh off the grill.  But we understand some of our customers also want to enjoy our Yakitori from the comfort of their own homes. 

We are currently exploring venues to arrange delivery to our customers without compromising the freshness and quality. Please watch out this place and we will let you know once we are ready to provide delivery services.

Do we need to make reservation?

As we have very limited seating options on-premises, we are currently unable to take on reservations. If you’d like to book the whole place for functions or gatherings, please contact us at hello@ozyaki.com.au

Is Ozyaki Halal/Kosher certified?

We cook pork and other meats under the same roof. More over, our Tare contains Japanese wines such as Mirin and Sake following our Japanese traditional recipes. This is why we cannot offer this particular kind of food needs at the moment, this may change in the future.
