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.

We want to say a massive 'Good Luck' to Sally Humble, Kumo's Front of House Manager and Sommelier, in the upcoming 'Best Sommelier of the Year' competition. Sally has tasted and written her way through the heats of this year's competition alongside Australia's best sommeliers and now she's prepping for a place in the finals on October 15 and 16, at Melbourne's historic Ormond Hall.

The Best Sommelier of the Year competition brings together wine professionals from all over Australia. In true style the awards are rounded off with the annual Sommeliers Ball. We can't wait. The ball is open to everyone so if you fancy testing your skills alongside some of Australia's finest go to sommeliers.com.au to find out more and book tickets. Go Sally!

You can read more about Sally's wine past and how she's prepping for the finals in her recent interview with The Wine Guide here.
