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.

Photography by James Grant

Nestled just inside our entrance you'll find Kumo's very own little omiyage* stand. The Kumo shop features products we've sourced from Japanese and local craftsmen and designers to bring that touch of Japan to your home and lifestyle.

We've brought to these shores aromatics such as the Saio bath salts, and Kouyou incense, to soothe and rejuvenate the senses, funky Kojimanadoko bags, for your shopping and lifestyle needs, Tadafusa cooking knives, to bring out the inner sushi chef in you, and even the Miyama craft tableware which we use in Kumo Izakaya. Artisan Yamanaka lacquerware from Ishikawa prefecture - renowned for their quality in Japan - is also available. Featured local designer goods include Japanese-inspired Oishi-m babywear, Bellroy slim wallets and Stormur tea towels and silk scarves, which have a cloud design on, fitting with Kumo, which means cloud.

The next time you drop by, why not have a browse of our little omiyage stand? You might find that special something you've been looking for, or something to brighten up your day.
