The restaurant is popular for serving  small plates (akin to Japanese tapas) and, in fact, that’s what the word izakaya means. At this JW Marriott spot, they also fire up the Japanese barbecue – known as robatayaki or robata. You can choose your juicy morsels from a selection that includes chicken breast and beef tenderloin, as well as more adventurous options like chicken gizzards and globe fish. Live cooking takes centre stage at Izakaya with intimate teppanyaki tables where you can watch the highly skilled chefs turn stir-frying into a dazzling show. 

On The Menu
