Don Don - A Cheapskate Oasis

September 02, 2016


Looking for a Japanese quickie at lunchtime? Then look no further.

Don Don is located on Little Lonsdale St, right next to Melbourne Central. Come during lunchtime and you’ll find lines out the door, but that’s all right because the service here is almost instant. Before we even have a chance to put our change in our pocket, we receive our meal.

 Not only is Don Don incredibly cheap it’s also incredibly tasty. We recommend trying the chicken curry don which you can pick up for only $6.90. The chicken is tender and the rice fluffy, it’s simple and that’s how we like it.

The interior isn’t anything amazing, it’s plain and fairly typical of an eating den. Whilst Don Don is a Japanese restaurant you’ll hear instead the likes of Taylor Swift and Cold War Kids blasting through the stereo. If it’s a truly authentic Japanese experience you’re after, then you’ll need to look elsewhere. Customer service can be a little rough but we’re always willing to overlook that if the menu is great value for money.

Don Don offers a no-frills experience and that’s exactly why we like it. It’s no wonder Don Don has become a go-to for local students and office workers; it’s cheap it’s affordable and it tastes great. Don Don comes highly recommended.
