Opening in 2000, Izumi is situated on the corner of Sydney Road and Whistler Street in Manly. Izumi is the preferred choice in the area as the restaurant offers Japanese favorites such as the popular Deluxe Bento box, Beef Tataki as well as Hot Pots perfect for the Winter. The cuisine is run by head chefs Tony, Sofia and Frank with over twenty years of experience in Japanese Culinary. Izumi's philosophy in cooking is to prepare delicious Japanese food that is simple, yet rich in flavours by using the freshest ingredients. The sushi and sashimi are prepared to order so it will always be fresh.
For entree, the fresh sashimi mixed platter or the Agegyoza (deep fried dumplings) are always popular. If you are concerned about your diet, some dishes are also available with steamed or pan fried options.
The teriyaki sauce is home made with a traditional japansese receiepe and it's at it's best on the grilled beef, snapper or the prawns. If you'd like to try a variety of dishes there are a number of set menus available including a vegetarian one.
There is a large range of Japanese beer and sake available such as the popular sapporo and Asahi beers which goes very well with a platter of sushi and sashimi platter. Alternatively, you may like to enjoy a bottle of the special Japanese plum wine.
