NAU MAI, HAERE MAI,
ki te IZAKAI BAR ANd Eatery
A local NZ twist on the Japanese Izakaya, Izakai Bar and Eatery brings together culture, tradition and flavours of Maori and Japanese to create a unique dining and drinking experience. Izakai was born when a friend and I realised a mutual love of hospitality, our home of Aotearoa and the desire to create a venue that we would want to spend time in ourselves.
We created an intimate space centred around our long-curved bar, ideal for date night, dinner and drinks before the movies or a night out with your mates.
Check out our menu of mouth-watering options including favourites Hangi Pork and Watercress Ramen, Creamed Paua and Prawn Gyoza and our Award-winning mānuka honey roasted kūmara pie. And don't miss out on our delicious handcrafted cocktails using local ingredients, beautiful wines and cold beers.
We absolutely can’t wait to host you soon.
Kia Ora, Liam and the Izakai Team
