An izakaya is Japan's version of a pub or neighborhood drinking establishment. Izakaya's have been an integral part of Japanese culture for over a century. Traditionally they are cozy spots where friends can gather, have a few drinks, eat some food and unwind.
They serve tapas-style food that's meant to be shared among friends. Generally, you order the first round of drinks then look over the menu and start making selections. The dishes never come out all at once, but rather in a progression and at the chef's discretion.
These places can get loud and boisterous - but that's the point! Izakaya's offer a relaxed, comfortable environment, plenty of laughter, and amazing food.
We take pride in every dish we put out.
The protocol once inside is to have fun.
