Bang Japanese 2

Tokyo-cool Japanese restaurant in Darling Square, Bang Bang will shoot you down

If you dig Japan and Japanese food, then new Tokyo eatery in Darling Square, Bang Bang, will more than do it for you.

A little Shinjuku, a little inner-city Tokyo, a little seaside Sydney, Bang Bang is a Robotronic, steely decorated, neon-lit, Yakuza decorated haven of Japanese-cool restaurant on the city fringe of inner Sydney.

Hard to find aside from the bullet-sprayed roller doors and hauntingly good Japanese scents wafting out the door, Bang Bang is on Steam Mill Lane underneath the Commonwealth Bank building, offering-up lunch to dinner for the more trendy eaters amongst us.

Head chef Kokubo Yuji’s (ex-Nobu Tokyo) casual lunch menu is an array of Japanese favourites including omelettes, udon, curries, signature donburi, and ‘The Bang Bang Tebasaki’: a tower of double-fried chicken wings doused in a peppery soy glaze.

They’re doing something new with the cuisine, playing with flavours and different versions of presentation that takes a different, but completely welcome step away from traditional Japanese eating.

Think cocktails served in hollowed-out grapefruits, sushi platters presented on fresh slate sheets and a cocktail called the “otakuastic” served in a 1- litre butler pump, perfect for large groups.
