Basic Information
Overpriced food with slow service. We went for lunch during the week and all the staff looked bored. Certainly not the experience this place has a reputation for. Took ages for someone to seat us, and even longer for our order to be taken and food to arrive: there was barely anyone in the restaurant. The menu is uninspired considering the theme. Certainly room for improvement here. There's so many other better themed places in Tokyo. Save yourself the trouble and pain and go somewhere else.

Believe it or not, Collector's Edge has endured as one of Melbourne's longest running comic book stores outside of the CBD. One step into the store and you can most certainly see why. The store is wonderfully presented; with graphic novels, clearance items, newly releases issues, rarities and collectables all neatly organised and easily accessible without little hassle. It's also remarkable clean and "seedy" free. If you're unable to hunt down a particular issue, all you need is ask the staff if they can get it in for you, and they'll try their best for you. On the chance they're able to order it, they don't require any money upfront, nor any "special rate" for ordering it, you simply pay what it costs. While it can be intimidating walking into a comic book store these days, what with the prevailing attitude among most "geeks" and "nerds" is to attack and belittle those who know less that they, the staff at Collector's Edge are helpful, considerate and friendly - and not in a cheap, two-faced fashion. Collector's Edge has been a longstanding addition to the Moonee Ponds community for at least 15 years (the length of time I've been going into the store), and while it's bothersome for people not living in the area to get to, it's only a 15 minute train ride from the CBD, with but a short walk from Moonee Ponds station. It's certainly worth your while to check them out.

For an outer suburb Japanese restaurant this is one of the better ones I've been to. The food is consistently enjoyable, and although simple, dishes are sure to not disappoint. There hasn't been an occasion where either myself or one of my eating companions have NOT enjoyed their meal, or felt like we didn't get value for money. In terms of price I can't really complain. If you wanted to get technical, the prices some of the dishes are set at don't reflect in their presentation. That said, you will enjoy it nonetheless. Just know that if you're looking for a cheap night out with two or more people, the prices aren't so high that it'll break the bank. Between two, you'll expect to pay around $60 for one entree, two mains and a drink each. The main issue I have with Shiki is the service. Often I've been seated and needed to wait upwards of 20 minutes before someone takes our order. After which, we're waiting upwards to half an hour for our food. This occurs even when they're not overly busy and is more of an annoyance when you're really hungry more than anything, really. In summary, if you're looking for a reasonably priced somewhat authetnic Japanese dining experience in the outer suburbs, and don't mind waiting just that little longer for service, than this is a perfect place for you.
