Review - Crane Bar

Alex Harmon seems a bit converted by her Japanese review this week...

Push past the thumping nightclubs and bright young things falling over in their heels, and you'll find this inviting late-night Japanese oasis.


Conveniently, it's open 24-hours, so you can kick your senses back into action with a Miyagi Mule ($18), a Japanese take on the classic with a wasabi zing; couple it with spicy Edamame ($8) and you're in for a real buzz.


Snacking options are vast, so take some friends and share everything, including the Gorgeous Sushi ($20), aptly named with scallops and delightfully seared trout.

Chicken Karage ($17) is insanely good – and addictive - with a subtle wasabi mayo. Likewise, the Balmain Bug ($36) with miso emulsion sauce - it's a little exxy, but the bug is perfectly cooked and the sauce is worth its weight in gold.


An interesting option is the Kangaroo Tataki ($22) - the kangaroo is sliced and seared, served Italian-style on
pita bread.


We couldn't decide on dessert so ended up sharing the Milky Brulee ($16) and Chocolate Pot ($13), both cute gifts on an already rewarding experience.

Japanese food can often seem like sensory overload but Crane offers it within a natural environment - make sure you retire to the atrium out the back to keep the night alive.
