What to Eat?

If it’s the namesake dish you’re going for the formula is simple: choose from vegetable, chicken, pork, ebi (prawn) and salmon; then choose your cooking method – deep fried, pan fried, or steamed. Can’t pick? Go for the Gyoza Moriawase, which includes 2 of each! Gyoza Bar also serve small plates including Edamame, to add some greens in the selection; as well as Bao – steamed buns, including our favourite – the Chicken Katsu Bun with tonkatsu sauce.
