An ode to the foundational ingredient of some of Japan’s most loved exports (sushi, saké, mochi… we could go on), Amuro is all about exalting the possibilities of rice.

Self-labelled as a boutique saké room, the warm, timber-clad space on Crown Street has room for 20 guests, and encourages early and solo visits.

While there’s no drinks list with the goal of starting genuine, enlightening conversations between staff and patrons, there are typically around 20 types of Nihon-shu (Japanese liquor) including hand-picked boutique and premium sake, umeshu and shochu available.

The accompanying menu of Japanese snacks (incorporating contemporary Chinese and American influences) also changes almost daily, and might look like simply dressed sashimi, tempura snacks, rice bowls including warming ochazuke, and one-bite seasonal desserts combining Japanese and European techniques.

Amuro is walk-in only, with bookings permitted for regular guests upon invitation.
