Kitami is a Japanese/Art Deco bar on King Street. The nondescript frosted door on King Street opens into an eclectic space full of atmosphere. It is a dark quiet space that is conducive to conversation and romance.



Japanese izakaya share dishes are offered with everything prepared freshly in house. The gyoza (6 pieces for $15) were soft, juicy and delicious, they went particularly well with an Asahi beer. All the expected dishes such as sashimi, sushi, yakitori and chicken kara- age are available and there is a good range of tofu based & vegetarian options.



The refreshing yuzu cocktail was $17 and its sour citrus flavour with a ginger touch complemented the tender and tasty Wagyu beef carpaccio-tataki ($18). There is a wide range of sake, Japanese inspired cocktails, beers and wine and two bars.



The chicken teriyaki sushi roll was also delicious and had a good rice to filling ratio and the tempura had a lot of different vegetables such as sweet potato, asparagus, eggplant and pumpkin coated in the light crispy batter.



Kitami has a 'small bar' license as it holds 60 patrons so under 18s are not permitted. They have a couple of large tables for groups but the booth and lounge seating is perfect for couples. It is a great place to drop in for a relaxing drink and a snack or two or a couple of drinks with dinner. The 1940s jazz soundtrack enhances the ambience and matches the decor.

A unique sophisticated bar on King Street.
