AboutEn Izakaya

En-Izakayais more than a restaurant or a bar

it is a meeting place – a place to catch-up with friends, over the perfect balance of eating, drinking and atmosphere.

ModernJapanese

Taste, texture, aroma & appearance
At En Izakaya, we’ve created the perfect izakaya experience – at the bar, or dining at the table – whether you’re two friends or 20!

Andy Gray and chef Kota Ogawa, have taken an innovative and more modern approach to the taste, texture, aroma & appearance of Japanese cuisine not yet seen in Melbourne.


IzakayaDining

A focus on taste, texture, aroma & appearance
Utilising a combination of traditional and contemporary Japanese methods of cooking & preparation, to present a beautifully balanced range of tapas-like tasting plates to share – from the Garden, from the Sea and from the Paddock.

DrinkingParty

En’s kanji character means “drinking party”.
Our varied and extensive list of Japanese nihonshu (sake) and shochu and local and international beer and wine, have been expertly designed to match the vegetarian, seafood and meat dishes on offer.

After all, En’s kanji character can be translated to “drinking party”.


KominkaArtisans

Traditional Japanese Building without nails
At En Izakaya, our interior has been hand crafted by Japanese artisans – a contemporary version of “kominka”, the Japanese style of wooden housing without nails – to compliment the En Izakaya experience.

The perfect environment for friends, food and drink.
