About Tomodachi - Izakaya & Bar

Michael Bong didn’t come to Japanese cooking along the obvious route – he’s Korean, for one – but now that he has, he’s certainly making the most of it. Tomodachi Izakaya & Bar on Little Malop Street in the centre of Geelong is a tribute to the corner bars of Tokyo, with a focus on the charcoal grill and the skewered mates that come off it. That results in top-notch pork belly, beef and chicken thighs for the meat-eaters and salmon, prawns and scallops for the fish fans as well as beancurd and vegetables for the vegetarians. Aside from the grill, there is also an astounding array of sushi and sashimi dishes, octopus pancake balls, salt and pepper squid, alongside dessert options and a long cocktail menu that befits all the best, boozy backstreet izakaya joints in Japan. Take trip into Geelong town centre for a Japanese meal to remember at Tomodachi on Little Malop Street – just remember to book your table before you arrive, as they do get crowded.

We had a great first experience at Tomodachi last night. The staff was very helpful, the food was absolutely delicious (make sure you try the black sesame ice cream!) and the place is nice and cosy.

Venue is quite cosy, so be sure to make a booking. Staff are very friendly. Food was absolutely delicious. I had gyozas for entree, the softshell crab for my main and shared a matcha ice-cream for dessert. I also had a cocktail (which are a must try!). Altogether it cost me $45, not bad at all! As i was leaving i was already trying to plan when to go back!

My wife is Japanese and I have been to Japan many times, Tomodachi is by far the most authentic Japanese restaurant in the Geelong and surrounding areas. With a Korean owner and Japanese chef, the set up is small but intimate with excellent customer service. Slightly more expensive than other outlets in the area but a really good experience, we will be back !!

Must have caught them on an off day because i've heard nothing but great things about the place. Service was average with no drink refills offered - our empty drinks sat on the table for the remainder of our meal. But empty plates were cleared quickly. Pork belly was chewy and dry and not as moist and delicious as it could have been. The flavours in everything were good though standouts were the yakitori, karage chicken and scallops. Overall though I wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be. But I might give it the benefit of the doubt and head back another time.

Great food at a reasonable price. Super friendly service. Food come out of the kitchen fast, so didn't have to wait long. I would recommend you book ahead they seem to be busy.
