Japanese food enthusiasts will be pleased to learn of a new addition to the restaurant scene in Double Bay, with the recent opening of Niji Restaurant & Bar at 21 Bay Street, headed up by some of Sydney’s best known Japanese and Sushi chefs.

The bar offers a large range of spirits and beer as well as the traditional sake, but the selection of their signature cocktails that I tried at the launch event were exceptional, well worth visiting the restaurant just to enjoy a cocktail or two.

Niji Restaurant’s name is synonymous with quality and their handcrafted culinary dishes blend a contemporary Japanese menu infused with traditional Japanese Izakaya dishes and Western ingredients to produce a modern taste.

Lunch is available from noon-3pm and dinner 6pm-10pm while the bar runs from noon-10pm.

The Double Bay addition to the Niji brand is an elegant and sophisticated modern restaurant and bar, set over two levels, quite different to their more casual Niji Sushi Bar in Kingsford
