Japanese Ito Noodle Cafe - Review - CBD, Melbourne

The Japanese Ito Noodle Cafe (122 Bourke St, Melbourne VIC 3000).  Okay, the signage falling off isn't  a great look but maybe image is not everything. right?

Japanese Ito Noodle Cafe has quite a nice internal layout and appearance. This isn't a place to go for a fine dining experience but is a nice inner city restaurant perfect for a relatively inexpensive work lunch.  
It kind of feels underground in the sense that the customers appear to be missing.  Don't be put off though.  If I was working around here and was looking for something above the typical food court package the Japanese Ito Noodle Cafe is a good place to start.
I would say that it is unassuming yet stylish.  Keep in mind by stylish I mean by lunchtime cafe standards.
As for the food there is  a wide selection and it is above what you'll find in your typical ramen noodle place. For this I thank them as I don't want Japanese food to fall into the category of the foodcourt Chinese food I see around the place.
As is typical for me I tend to talk generally about the food.  That is you get a good honest review that basically informs you the good or the bad but isn't necessarily what I call detailed.
I happily recommend the Japanese Ito Noodle Cafe to anyone for a casual lunch that will not break the bank and as a place that still manages to have some character of its own.
Anyway, while in no way spectacular the food is good and you'll probably want to come back again.
