Yum all you can eat Japanese

All you can eat Okami, Japanese now in Bendigo. Can veganise menu items. Changes you need to make are on the photos I uploaded. (Plus - veg spring rolls are not vegan, have egg. Agedashi tofu say no bonito or fish broth. Veg fried rice say oil no butter or egg. Sushi - ask for plain inari & veg nori rolls no mayo, just tofu & veg. Etc)

Omg there were teething problems last time I thought but this time I realise they are just trying to feed people as little as possible!! So many servers carrying trays to pick up plates & no one carrying ipads to order. No one seemed to be able to take our order and then when we ordered it would take 5 tries at ordering before we got something. We spent most of the time begging for food with nothing on our table. The Hampton one is so much better. We won't be going back to the Bendigo one.

Cons: Begging for food, Stuff all you can eat if you can't get food

Good choices and fresh

There are more than a dozen dishes marked vegetarian, and many are or could be vegan. We went early, and our mistake was to order a long list straight away, so too many came at once, and we couldn’t eat all the hot ones as quickly as they deserved. Dining later would have ensured they came better spaced. We coped! We ate and enjoyed! The place became busy, so we only ordered one more selection of entrees, had no room for mains (which weren’t as appealing anyway) and then had dessert (green tea ice cream not vegan).
Early on a Sunday evening, the place was a bit noisy with lots of kids, but service was good.

Pros: Choices, Fresh, Great value

Cons: Long wait to pay when sitting ends, A bit noisy early evening

Good food & value

Wow the place was full - when we turned up they said they have 2 sittings.... one must have started at 530pm and the later sitting was 745pm. Recommend the later sitting, and ordering a lot at once...because you might not get another chance to order, they were so busy.

Service was pretty good. The food came out fast enough.

I was impressed with the range and the quality for what is really a fast food buffet.

I think I had 7 or 8 dishes, for $34.50pp, that’s good. Favourite was the veg gyoza.

I do recommend if you are going with an Omni, to explain to your service staff you’re veg, because they bought out 6 meat dishes before they bought out the first veg dish, so I was very hungry by then. It’s designed to share, so if you’re on a table of 2 or 4 or 6 you’ll get servings to suit the table size, meat or veg. Also the spring rolls have egg in them.

Tell them you’re vegan and they take off any fish sauce mayonnaise etc...

Parking out back.

Pros: Great options, Good value, Tasty food

Cons: Very busy, Noisy
