Welcome to Kumo Izakaya, Melbourne's foremost location for Japanese sake, food and culture. An eating place, a drinking place, a meeting place, Kumo is more than a restaurant and bar.

We serve "Izakaya" style Japanese food, it's closest comparison is Spanish tapas. Lots of smaller dishes to share, meaning you get to try many different tastes as opposed to locking yourself into the traditional western style dining of "entree, mains and dessert".

At Kumo Izakaya, you will find a varied and extensive range of local and imported wine, spirits, sake, shochu, umeshu and beer. Our in-house wine and sake experts will be on hand to offer recommendations and information. Enjoy a range of small gourmet izakaya-style platters between friends while opening up a bottle of wine or sake to match, or sip a house signature cocktail or fine Japanese whisky at the bar.

[/IMG] In Japan, Valentine's Day is typically observed by girls and women presenting chocolate gifts (either store-bought or handmade), usually to boys or men, as an expression of love, courtesy, or social obligation. Handmade chocolate is usually preferred by the recipient because of the perception of sincerity, effort, and emotion put into a home-made confection. This does sound a little one sided, but don't worry men are not let off the hook! Their day is to come in the form of White Day held a month later on March 14. White Day sees the men returning the gesture of gift giving and the custom usually dictates that a man's reciprocation should follow sanbai gaeshi ( which literally means,"triple the return", a gift that represents at least three times the effort or cost. So the ladies don't do too badly out of it... At Kumo, we keep it easy, we've put togther a beautiful dinner for you and your partner to share – no triple payback expected!
