The Izakaya might most easily be described as a Japanese tapas bar or gastropub. The tradition has its origins in sake shops that allowed customers to drink on site: i means “stay” and sakaya means “sake shop.” These evolved into lively, democratic restaurants where anyone could share servings inspired by almost all styles of Japanese cuisine — from street food to sushi and sashimi — and choose from a vast selection of ice-cold beer, wine, and, of course, sake.
Their restaurant is a faithful interpretation of the izakaya that also embraces the ideas that have made the Danish capital one of the world’s most vibrant dining destinations. Therefore, in addition to serving a permanent list of classic dishes like fried chicken, sashimi, dumplings, and tender pork belly, our chef crafts a constantly rotating “seasonal menu” that draws on the best produce nearby biodynamic farms offer and the most pristine seafood on the market
At Jah we have the capacity to seat 24 people in a group together at a long table in the restaurant. We will serve our omakase menu to groups larger than 7 persons.
