Japanese food in Sydney is usually focussed around sushi and sashimi, or if you’re lucky, a few yakitori skewers or a chicken teriyaki. There is so much more to Japanese cuisine than these favourites, however, and if you head over to Harajuku Gyoza on Bayswater Road in Potts Point, you can try some of the more rustic specialities from the Land of the Rising Sun. What the sushi bar is to midday, the izakaya is to the evening, the place where sake is swilled and where the hearty dishes keep a coming, from the eponymous gyoza dumplings to ramen, don noodles and katsu curry. Book a table at Harajuku Gyoza and find out what they have to offer.
The izakaya is right at the heart of eating and drinking culture of Japan, providing sustenance to the salarymen and women getting stuck into the sake after a long day at the office. When you want to experience the classic fare of the humble yet welcoming izakaya in Sydney, then you need to make a move into Kings Cross and Harajuku Gyoza on Bayswater Road.

The staff there had really good service. They were all so friendly and efficient. Nice selection of drinks on the menu. Food came reasonably quick as well. Would recommend for a fun night out.
Loved their hospitality and the food was delicious. Should definitely try a sake and enjoy the experience!
Amazing food, vibe, service.. the works!! Sake is a must not just for the drink but for the Japanese cheer that lights up the place! X
