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.

Join Master of Cheese Will Studd and Kumo owner and Sake Master Andre Bishop for an evening of cheese and sake indulgence.

The fact that sake is a much better match with cheese than wine is a fact that is not widely known but is rapidly gaining ground. Join two experts in their field and discover why cheese and sake work so well together.

Will Studd is an Australian cheese specialist. Studd has been working with artisan and farmhouse cheeses for more than three decades, and has traveled extensively in his vocation. After establishing a chain of delicatessens in central London during the 1970s, he migrated to Melbourne, Australia, in 1981, where he has done much to promote a greater understanding of specialist cheese as well as championing the cause of traditional cheese made from raw milk.

Kumo owner Andre Bishop has been involved professionally with sake for 15 years and his passion for sake his recently earned him the hounorary title of Sake Samurai from the Japan Sake brewers Association. He is also a certified sake professional recognised by the Sake Education Council
