Our Story

Welcome to Nine Japanese Bistro

Nine Japanese Bistro (formally Nine Fine Food) started in Perth in 2003 under the leadership of Chef Jongsoo Muneki Song.

Muneki, and his team are passionate about bringing together Japanese cuisine and modern Australian dishes for a unique dining experience.

Head Chef, Ryoji Ishizuka has worked in some of the best  restaurants in Japan and Australia including, Burdigala (Osaka), Jackson’s (Perth) and Tetsuya’s (Sydney).

In Japan, we have a word “Omotenashi” which ostensibly means “hospitality” but is often used to describe the hospitable spirit of Japanese culture.

We welcome you Nine Japanese Bistro, where you will be delighted by our relaxed, sophisticated dining experience that we provide at Nine Japanese Bistro.

“Amazing food”

Amazing food and fantastic customer service, was so full and satisfied after the omakase. There was not one thing that I didn’t like, everything was delicious. :)”


“Beautiful delicate Japanese”

Beautiful delicate Japanese food close to Perth.We purchased the 5 course degustation. It was generous and tasted delicious.From the sashimi to the lovely pork and corn broth. Right through to the final dessert we were taken on a lovely culinary journey. A place to come for special occasions.

“Fantastic food!”

Fantastic food! My wife celebrated our wedding anniversary with the 6 course Omasake Set menu. SUPERB. Ample food. Next time, we will try the 5 course, then 4 course…so we get to try everything! BYO is also a welcome option. Also helps when there is free parking on the road. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.”
