Kumo Izakaya

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, main and dessert.

Dining at Kumo Izakaya is an experience best shared with friends! When dining in a group of seven or more, an enkai banquet menu is available for your group’s dining pleasure. Offering a number of customizations for your preference, the enkai menu is designed to enhance service efficiency, dish variation and your overall dining experience.
