About Sakana

さかなについて (sakana ni tsuite)

A Japanese term referring to food eaten as an accompaniment to alcohol, originating from the word ‘saka’ (sake) and ‘na,’ meaning food.

Sakana offers a modern pan-Asian twist to Japanese flavours and the finest local produce, serving shareable plates in a casual space, to old friends and new guests.

Reflecting the Japanese philosophy of ‘sakana,’ the dishes on our menu are even better when paired with something to sip, and best enjoyed over lively, happy tables. Welcome, and itadakimasu, or, ‘let’s eat!’

Menu

フードメニュー (fūdo menyū)

Our menu is a cultural mix, combining speciality Japanese ingredients and techniques with beautiful Australian produce – as local as we can find.

Drinks List

ドリンクリスト (dorinku risuto)

We’ve created our drinks list with the best type of eating in mind. The eating accompanied by drinking.

For Japanese people it is customary to say “KAMPAI” at the start of meals with drinks. This is often voiced with enthusiasm as glasses are raised, kanpai translates to “dry-cup” — the Western equivalent would be “cheers” or “bottoms up”.
