Kazuki’s

Kazuki's has an earthy elegance, with dark walls, an open fire and ceramic pendant lights that evoke a sliver of lotus root. This same style follows on the plate, from the inky black butter infused with seaweed that goes with house-made bread to yasai - a painterly bouquet of local leaves, flowers and brightly pickled vegetables. Kazuki's set menus are Japanese in essence but also veer towards Europe, taking you from beef tataki to duck with fig and foie gras. Plump Moreton Bay bug dumplings arrive under a cloud of sake foam, while fine goat's cheese tortellini sit on a homely spiced pumpkin purée. A mix of pork belly and trotter, bundled up in nori and given a sheer coat of batter, is served with tissue-thin apple, kimchi, crackling and a miniature pork bun. Drinks are a solid offering of premium sake, shochu, local wines and well-selected mostly French labels, plus some light, floral cocktails that intertwine perfectly with the poetic food.
