Kazuya

Fine Dining

Blink and you’ll miss the stark white shopfront that marks the entrance to Kazuya. Inside, the narrow space is equally pared down. The food, however, is anything but.  Although many of the techniques and ingredients used here are European in influence, there is an attention to detail in the service that rings distinctly Japanese, with white-gloved staff who are coy yet attentive, informed and charming. The tasting menu is full of surprises and unexpected combinations, such as sashimi served with yoghurt and dashi, and handmade cavatelli pasta topped with charred squid, nori and parmesan foam. There is an equally inspired drinks offering, including a long list of sake, lesser-known grape varietals available by the glass, and one of the best cellar selections in the city. 

A favourite dish
Chef Kazuya Yamauchi is particularly skilled at cooking seafood, so look forward to those courses in the tasting.
