Kissuu has opened its doors on Sydney’s Oxford Street and is the latest venue from hospitality company Hunger Group.

The two-level Japanese-inspired venue covers a 40-seat restaurant downstairs and an upstairs disco, with Owner Paul Schulte recruiting a team of young talent to bring the concept to fruition.

“It’s been an incredible experience to work with these extremely talented and passionate entrepreneurs who collectively understand the perfect mix of food, drinks and music Sydney has been craving,” says Schulte.

“You don’t see a lot of party bars in Sydney like you do in other major cities around the world and we wanted to fill that gap in the market here.”

Former Nobu Chef Adam Burke is heading up the kitchen, bringing more than 20 years of experience working in Michelin-star establishments overseas.

“This menu is all about using fresh ingredients, having fun and making delicious and creative dishes,” says Burke.

“My unique style draws inspiration from around the world and my Burmese heritage to create Japanese dishes that celebrate local, seasonal and native ingredients.”

Dishes are designed to share and include stuffed chicken wings with prawn and wasabi kimchi; tempura Balmain bug lettuce cups with umami mayo and caviar along with prawn, scallop, shiitake and tofu gyoza.

The menu also features tacos: think tuna with wasabi oil, kingfish with yuzu, togarashi dressing and finger lime; eggplant with miso and walnut; beef tartare with muntries and Davidson plum and jap crisps and kingfish with mandarin ponzu and charred plum.

A robata grill selection covers miso-glazed toothfish with daikon, sugar loaf cabbage with truffle wafu and parmesan; lamb ribs with moro miso and pomegranate and prawns with shiso salsa.

The beverage list is available across both levels and encompasses a range of wines along with signature drinks.

There are various riffs on the margarita as well as the Twisted Geisha with Tanqueray, sake, lychee and lemon and the Next to the Koi Pond with washed Casamigos blanco, yuzu, lime and basil.

Upstairs, the disco-themed bar hosts live DJ performances organised by music curator and DJ Richy Penny.

The venue will soon launch monthly Sunday brunch parties, with additional events announced in the coming months.

Kissuu is open Tuesday to Saturday from 4pm until late.
