Every dish in Izakaya Kenta comes with an authentic Japanese touch and is served in big portions for a reasonable price. It stimulates the appetite with picturesque presentation of its dishes while satisfying the customer’s expectation with sumptuous taste.
The Japanese restaurant exudes a rustic ambiance from the façade to interiors. The wooden tables and chairs affirms the original connotation of Izakaya (居酒屋), a casual place for those who are into after-work drinking. Izakaya Kenta boasts its tatami rooms or private rooms that have a unique design wherein there’s a space apportioned below the dining table. In this way, customers can avoid knee numbness and still experience the traditional Japanese style. Every room is accentuated with tatami mats from Japan and are perfect for small group and exclusive gatherings.
