When it comes to dining experiences, what is often the accurate recipe to an enjoyable night out? Ask anyone and they'll suggest that a good venue with excellent food, set in an atmosphere that soothingly tickles the senses, are paramount.

Tokyo Jazz Café thoroughly encapsulates those aspects and much more. A splash of the Orient meets New Orleans –that is probably the best way of describing this restaurant. Tucked away, and I mean literally, in the underground suite of Shop 2, 51-53 Spring Street, Bondi Junction, Tokyo Jazz Café or TJC, offers patrons a delightful culinary experience within an intimate setting that features live performances from local jazz talents such as Roman Pulati and Chris Anson. The intimate setting, highlighted by a backdrop of seductive lighting coupled with the sound of rhythmic blues and bossa nova music, makes this hideout an ideal location for romantics, jazz-lovers and those genuinely seeking a pleasant evening. The sofas surrounding the front of the stage, also allows you to get up close and personal with the musicians, as you listen to classic jazz tunes being played.

Although live performances only occur at night, TJC is also open for breakfast and lunch. For those seeking a savoury daytime meal, this is a perfect option for that.

Service is excellent with the staff at TJC -from the head chef down to the newest waitress -being extremely friendly and most importantly, attentive to customers. Their menu features an array of mouth-watering Japanese cuisine and a diverse range of sake and other traditional, Japanese beverages. Pricing is very reasonable and on performance nights, a $25 per person, minimum-spending fee is quite affordable considering what they present customers with.

Their attention to detail is remarkable, with the restaurant operating a website where you can subscribe to their latest news and be informed about the dates of performances and additions to the menu.

So there you have it -enjoyable music, appetising Japanese cuisine and a friendly staff. What more can you ask for?
