GAKU in Japanese means

Easy, Happy & Delightful

all in one word!


In the 1600s Japanese sake shops began serving customers skewers and other light bites – becoming known as izakayas – literally meaning “sitting in a sake shop”. They are now cherished all over Japan as well as New York and London as after-work eateries which offer refreshing sakes and delicious, fresh food in a buzzing, vibrant environment.

GAKU cherishes the Izakaya philosophy and provides award-winning dishes in a casual, yet elegant atmosphere with friendly service. 

 
 

The original GAKU Japanese character represents a bell with a handle, drawn with decorative threads on each side. Such bells were used as instruments in court music, and thus were used to convey the notion of fun and pleasure.
