About Izakaya Den

Street meets modern chic at the chef hat awarded Izakaya Den, a quintessentially Melbourne dining experience situated amongst the bustling strip of Russell Street. Step down the narrow flight of stairs into a well kept secret of basement dining, where the careful combination of culinary chemistry and contemporary style results in something truly memorable. The compact yet well crafted menu at Izakaya Den uses the staple ingredients of traditional Japanese cuisine, enticingly presented in a modern manner. Ordering fresh sashimi is recommended by many restaurant regulars, as is the sweet corn kaki-age. Dessert comes as no afterthought, and is best savoured with a pick from the Japanese focused beverage list.

Have the first lunch in melbourne after spending 2 years in japan, I must say this is very authentic japanese food like the one I ate in Osaka.




Amazingly simple but seriously tasty food. It is clear that every detail of the place has been so carefully thought out, Izakaya Den is a real experience. Extensive drinks list of exclusive imports is a highlight, and staff are happy to help with selecting the right drinks.
