About Our Japanese Menu

At Saké Hamer Hall, premium produce and precise Japanese craftmanship underscore menus that are designed to be shared and impossible not to enjoy.

Enjoy exquisite house-made desserts. Centuries-old, Japanese robata grilling is another central element of each menu, delivering sensational, charcoal-smoky flavours to everything from responsibly sourced meats and seafood, to the humble, locally sourced vegetable.
