Harpoon Social Club was born of a love for Japanese culture and the small, crowded ramen bars of Tokyo. Nights spent in izakayas, days spent wandering the back streets of Shibuya, Ebisu and Shimokitazawa, and countless bowls of noodles all knitted together to form a little dream. Why not bring a Ramen Bar to Bendigo?

With noodles at its core, and bao to die for, the rest of the seasonal menu is designed for sharing. There’s abundant vegan and gluten free options, with the emphasis on fun. There’s little nods to Korea and China and even Bangkok in the dishes, and you won’t be the first folk to be wowed by what comes out of that kitchen. Dedicated to bringing new flavours and dishes to Bendigo, you’re bound to try something new to you. The ultimate date night venue, leave the kids at home and get stuck into the gin list.

Harpoon is open for dinner Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5pm. We offer an abridged version of our menu takeaway online only. Please note we don’t accept takeaway orders in the restaurant.

We take reservations, though we prefer walkins. See the reservation policy below.



We will continue to follow the recommendations of the government and the CHO.

Please stay at home if you are experiencing any COVID related symptoms or have tested positive in the last fortnight



As mentioned above, we go above and beyond for vegans and coeliacs. Approximately 40% of our menu is accessible, without having to omit anything. 

We use A LOT of Japanese ingredients. Namely Soy and Sesame. If you have an allergy to either of these ingredients we kindly ask you to rethink your visit. Same goes for garlic. We are UNABLE to cater for any Soy, Sesame or Garlic allergies.



Reservations are released one month in advance, and can only be made via our online booking system. These are limited, and go quick. You’re welcome to add yourselves to our waiting list in case of a cancellation, though better yet we strongly encourage you to just walk in. We keep all of our outside dining space and our inside bar space solely for the last-minute decision makers. We love it. Even if we don’t have something immediately we operate a waitlist and endeavour to get Harpoon into your bellies quick smart.


We are unable to accept reservations for groups larger than eight. We don’t have space. Our one large table seats 8 healthy size bums comfortably. 


We hold reserved tables for fifteen minutes, and then they are up for grabs. If you are running late, please contact us via email harpoonbookings@gmail.com. Same goes if you need to change anything and can’t manage on the booking system.



We do not have highchairs, nor do we have space for prams. Well behaved, noodle loving little tackers are welcome. We ask that you stick to takeaway if you think your little ones would disrupt our tiny venue. 


We are fully licensed and do not accept BYO. 


We do not have a phone number. It’s ok though, you can still reach us by email harpoonsocialclub@gmail.com, though if enquiring during service you may not hear back immediately.
