A NEIGHBOURHOOD JAPANESE IZAKAYA RESTAURANT & COCKTAIL BAR WHERE EVERYTHING IS CREATED TO BE PAIRED TOGETHER
Issho-Ni means “together with” in Japanese. Located in Shoreditch, Issho-Ni is a chic Japanese restaurant & cocktail bar. A place where people can gather to enjoy good food and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere.
Our concept is simple, we serve delicious small sharing plates of Japanese food, Izakaya style. Our head chef created the menu with a twist on Japan’s traditional dishes alongside our head bartender to create cocktails that complement each dish.
Founder & Director Claire Su
Passionate about food and drink she travelled the world to seek new and innovative ideas to bring back to London. Her all-time favourite destination was Japan, which inspired her to start her own Japanese restaurant in order to share her knowledge and enthusiasm of their culture, culinary talents, and understanding of simple flavours.
She has a pastry background and creates one-time limited pastries that are sold out as soon as they are available. Claire’s family holds sentimental value to Issho-Ni since it was formerly the first noodle bar (Noodle King) to operate in the area by her parents, feeding many local families.
Following in her parents’ footsteps, Claire created Issho-Ni, a restaurant wherepeople can meet to enjoy delicious cuisine, beverages, and a fantastic atmosphere (together)
I knew at a very young age as a kid my career will be in the kitchen cooking. I have now been a sushi chef for over 7 years in kitchens such as Chotto Matte and Happy Restaurants. Cooking with love is my passion. It helps me keep busy and connects me with the best people. It is the art form my mind feels at home when it’s the process of creating. We thrive to use fresh and high-quality ingredients. Food should be made and presented in simple, yet delicious ways. On the plate, everything serves a purpose. Flavours, garnish, sauces, texture, and colour are all essential in every dish and cocktail.
