Welcome to Kumo Izakaya

Whilst the heart of our cuisine is contemporary Japanese we take inspiration from Asian street food in general.

Our menu reflects a range of influences from countries such as South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Vietnam.

To accompany your food we offer wine, Japanese and local craft beer and a great sake selection.

Our menu is mainly comprised of  smaller dishes and we encourage you to order a selection of many tastes!

An izakaya is not just a restaurant or bar: an izakaya is a place where eating and drinking take equal parts. But it is more than this: it’s a meeting place, somewhere to bond and forget the worries of the day. Izakayas started as local eating places, where people would go after work to have a couple of drinks and stay for an hour or 10. In Japan, izakayas are known for their ‘homeliness’ – everyone knows your name and you are welcome whether you are alone or with friends.

Izakayas have a great range of small and large dishes ordered as-you-like-it as the night unfolds. You don’t have to choose between sashimi, deep fried, meat, vegetarian or other copious choices of food with beer, sake or other drinks – just have a bit of everything and share. Izakayas are the perfect blend of bar and food.
