Izakaya is certainly a little different, serving creative dishes accompanied by a good rock playlist. It's loud in the evening but thankfully quieter for the work folk who frequent this small venue just off Bridge Lane in Sydney's CBD. Don't expect the usual Japanese food here, although the flavours are traditional. Try the Cloudy Bay clams or slow cooked pork belly with Nori jam. There is a choice of killer cocktails and set menus to suit groups with function areas catering for 12 diners or more.
