At Haiku Kuro, we believe dining isn't just about food and drink. It's about creating experiences to shout about.

Our dimly lit restaurant offers a side street-type vibe to that of Tokyo. With its sleek design and dim lighting, Haiku Kuro captures the essence of a Tokyo nightlife hotspot. In addition, our creative and contemporary izakaya concept will tantalize your senses with a fusion of traditional Japanese flavours, and modern culinary techniques.

Combine this with our upbeat and funky atmosphere, you're set for a memorable journey through Japan.

japanese cocktails & imported beers - kuro style

At Kuro, we take our Japanese drinks selection just as seriously as our food. Therefore, we understand that no meal is complete without the perfect drink pairing. That's why we offer a unique range of cocktails, beers, whiskys, and sake that are hand-selected to complement our dishes.

Our team has crafted a drinks menu that showcases the very best of Japanese spirits and mixology. Indulge in our selection of Japanese whiskey, including the highly sought-after Hibiki and Nikka. Alternatively, sample some of the finest Japanese sake that we have to offer. It doesn't disappoint.
