GENTA Japanese Dining Bar
= "IZAKAYA GENTA" (Japanese)

What is "IZAKAYA" ?

The name "izakaya" is a compound word consisting of "i" (to sit) and "sakaya" (sake shop), showing that izakaya originates from sake shops (liquor shops) which allowed customers to sit at the premises to drink.

Izakaya is sometimes called Aka-chochin (red lantern) in daily conversation, because these paper lanterns are traditionally found in front of an izakaya.


Coupled with our exceptional high standards of service, we aim to create a memorable and enjoyable experience for all our guests.

We offer culinary treasures and fine delicacies from Japan, cooked in both contemporary and traditional styles, bringing to New Zealand the culture of food from Japan, a blend of delicacies to suit every palate.

We also have a bar counter offering extensive list of sake, beer, wine, shochu, umeshu and specialty cocktails which will have you coming back for more.

We are open 7 days for dinner and 5 days (Mon-Fri) for lunch.

Please come, bring your friends, and enjoy our food, drinks, atmosphere and hospitality!
