The Yakitori House is bringing an authentic taste of Japan to the city centre with their menu of traditional izakaya and yakitori style food.

Their mouthwatering offering includes yakitori from the grill, kushiage (deep fried) dishes in panko bread crumbs and tempura. A range of Japanese beers, tap or bottled, sake, and New Zealand wine are also on offer.

The atmospheric interior combines traditional Japanese design with contemporary elements, creating a great  ambiance for an enjoyable lunch or dinner.
