This isn't any old Izakaya. The traditional Japanese eating house has been given a makeover, thanks to Yama Zaru Izakaya who has merged casual Japanese eats with karaoke and is singing its way to the top of Cairns' list of most exciting restaurants.

This most sophisticated and beautiful culture is reimagined by Yama Zaru in the modern age. The sweeping dining room, lined with glossy woods and surrounded by symmetrical interior design, blooming Sakura trees and celebrations of treasured cultural traditions, is a unique take on Japanese minimalism. Communal dining lies at the heart of the concept, like all Izakaya. This is where loved ones feast together before gearing themselves up for a go on the microphone!

Before you hit the high notes, start off with some small plates to share. Dip and dive into the punchy flavours of kimchi Korean spicy cabbage, vegetable croquettes, Hiyayakko tofu and Japan's famous octopus balls.

For individual mains, go classic with some teriyaki chicken, ton katsu pork fillet or a chicken katsu don. Make sure you're well and truly full with some gyoza and karaage chicken to share, then knock back some Sake, take a generous sip of Asahi and prepare yourself for the performance of a lifetime.
