A few words
about Izakaya



Izakaya is Houston’s first Japanese gastropub. Sister restaurant to Kata Robata and located in the growing Midtown neighborhood, Izakaya is a modern-day izakaya – a Japanese tavern in essence, where drinks are as important as the food – and differs from the other Japanese restaurants in our family by introducing global cuisine to the mix.
