@ Darling Quarter
Open 7days

Japanese Izakaya Bar

Welcome to Ichoume!

The name “Ichoume” comes from the address of this street. Ichoume is located on ‘1’ Harbour Street, Darling Quarter. That’s why we named the restaurant “Ichoume” (Choume is used for addresses in Japan. It's a way of breaking a municipality into districts. 丁目(Choume) is ‘city district’, so ‘1 choume’(Ichoume) is ‘1st [city] district’).

The design concept of the restaurant is a hangout for adults.

The owners are ARI K. and YUKI ISHIKAWA.
ARI, the owner of the tavern Yebisu (Haymarket) and Inase Sakaba (Town Hall), has also created various business formats.
This restaurant collaborates with YUKI ISHIKAWA, who has made a restaurant that blends Jazz and Japanese cuisine at Jazushi (Surry Hills). The cuisine is a fusion of Japanese and Western styles, including fresh sushi and further evolution of Japanese cuisine.

The menu is supervised by AKIKO ISHIKAWA, who has accumulated her career in many restaurants. SHINSUKE TODA is recognised among the best sushi chefs now working and is credited with techniques utilised in contemporary sushi and sashimi preparation.

The wine list was supervised by Mr NED GOODWYN, a celebrated sommelier in Australia and one of only 200 certified Master of wine worldwide. CHIAKI KOMURA is an authentic licensed Sake sommelier. She made our exquisite Sake and Shochu menu.

The restaurant was designed by ‘Giant Design’, one of Australia’s leading designers. ‘Reliable Shopfitting’, Australia’s leading releasable shop fitting company, was responsible for the store’s construction.

Hope you enjoy what we’ve made for you.
