Experience a new level of authentic Japanese cuisine through the newly-launched Izakaya by OKU’s modern reimagination at The Apurva Kempinski Bali.

Experience a new level of authentic Japanese cuisine through the newly-launched Izakaya by OKU’s modern reimagination at The Apurva Kempinski Bali. Inspired by the award-winning OKU Restaurant at Hotel Indonesia Kempinski Jakarta, Izakaya by OKU is a modern Japanese restaurant with an atelier concept. 

The word Izakaya refers to the after-work hub in Japan, where people gather over a meal. Featuring an all-wood structure and earth-coloured tones with subdued lighting as well as an open kitchen that allows guests to observe the preparation of the dishes and the chef’s craftsmanship at the highest level, the 60 seat Izakaya by OKU is just the right place to experience the Japanese dining culture in the heart of Nusa Dua.

Taste the eloquently plated OKU Karaage that is creatively crafted by Chef Deni at Izakaya by OKU at The Apurva Kempinski Bali.

Chef Deni Koswara, who has more than 15 years experience in Japanese gastronomy, has taken inspiration from the traditional Japanese cooking method as well as its ingredients to curate a creative yet delectable menu for the Izakaya. Taste some of Izakaya by OKU’s signature dishes such as Karasumi Pasta, OKU Kaarage, OKU Aburi Salmon Roll, Truffle Gyu Don, Saikyo Cod, and Mizu that are surely not to be missed. 

Or indulge with “Okukase” – an enticing five-course and seven-course Chef’s degustation menu that is paired with sakes and signature cocktails. Izakaya by OKU also offers an extensive range of Japanese traditional sake and shochu as well as creative cocktails that are crafted by the resort’s sake sommelier.

Featuring an all-wood structure and earth-coloured tones with subdued lighting, Izakaya by OKU is the right place to experience Japanese dining culture.

Izakaya by OKU at The Apurva Kempinski Bali opens from Monday to Sunday from 6 PM to 11 PM. For more information or reservations, please kindly contact +62 361 209 2288, email restaurants.bali@kempinski.com or visit https://www.kempinski.com/en/bali/the-apurva-kempinski-bali/dining/izakaya-by-oku/
