    Very authentic Japanese food. We had the miso salmon and the sauce is absolutely beautiful. The cocktails were interesting and good price. Friendly and helpful service

    We arrived during a time when the restaurant was short staffed due to covid. We noticed one waitress and initially thought this might be a problem. How wrong we were. The efficiency and service along with the amazing menu and food was nothing short of amazing. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

    Amazing service and hard work, little pricey but good quality. The atmosphere feels like we were in Japan, really impressive. We ate a lot of foods and tried to taste as much as we could, they are all delicious. Do not forget to order desert if you go there, all of them are wonderful.

    We've been going for a few years and they never disappoint. Great selection of meals and drinks and the quality always on point. We travel Japan and it reminds us of visiting there.

    Ochacha feels as comfortable as being in a Japanese home. We are regulars because we know the food and service will be as excellent as always. Highly recommended.

    Great restaurant, love the tapas options on the menu. Staffing numbers are low and some people aren't aware that it's a small family operated restaurant so it does take time for meals to arrive but they are always worth the wait

    The place is small & cozy, followed with traditional izakaya decorations. Foods are worth waiting & the services are excellent. Overall a very good experience in here.

    This family run restaurant has plenty of charm and is great value for money. Authentic Japenese dishes the best I have ever tasted. and the soy milk pudding was divine. A must visit when in Cairns.

    Missing Japan because of the pandemic and this restaurant gives all the feels. Had to return 2 days in a row - that is how good their food is! Tip: book your table at the earliest time so you’ll be one of the first to order and won’t need to wait too long, but even if you do, it’ll be worth it anyway.

    One little restaurant hidden away from the main street. Operated by 2 chefs and 1 waitress. We had tapas for food and was versatile and good and nice atmosphere.
