Description: YAMAMORI IZAKAYA, located at 12-13 South Great Georges Street, Dublin 2, in what was originally Ireland's very first cafe. This old Bewleys building boasts original oriental style decor with a twist. Enjoy the 1940's Chinese and Japanese beer ads and movie posters with a great Asian beer or rice wine, and try our dublin famous homemade Izakaya burger. After your meal we have a lounge downstairs where you can catch a nice Izakaya Lycee cocktail, and enjoy some modern sounds from Dublin's up and coming DJ's. Downstairs is a Japanese style drinking house, serving small Japanese style pub food dishes with great Japanese whiskeys, beers and sake. Come for food or drinks, chill out and listen to some urban lounge deep and soul tunes. The Izakaya has a retro easy going atmosphere and is open 7 days a week from 17:30 and is available for private bookings.

Fantastic food, the culinary highlight of our trip to Dublin, and we had some excellent food. We particularly liked the "Japas" option, meaning you can have as little or as much as you like.

Alot more to this place than sushi, great tempora, squid rings, and chicken skewers and sweet potate fries with tastey dip. Real tasty, fresh and not greasy, and a GREAT selection of cocktails and great decor. Definitely get here early on the weekends if you intend to eat.

Top class sushi, great drinks menu and good service. I love the booths where you can watch Dublin go by. The lunch menu is good value, dinner less so. It has a big menu and they're very good at what they do.

As a Kurosawa fan, I'm always going to fall in love with a bar/restaurant which shows Seven Samurai all the time on its big screens. But this little bar, seemingly a bit of an afterthought in the Yamamori empire around the city is a really great little place if you are in the mood for drinks and snacks rather than... More

Hi Philip. Thanks for taking the time to write this review. We are very happy to hear you are a Kurosawa fan like ourselves! We will actually be screening the movies over in Tengu this weekend too, along with some of the original Japanese Samurai movies. We hope to see you again soon. More
