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.

Restaurant Reservations

We require all bookings to be made through our online booking system.

We are happy to answer any phone queries after 5pm on 0409 130 587 or (03) 9388 1505
