Located in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District, PABU Izakaya’s allure derives from its old-world Japanese charm infused with urban sophistication. Founded by Chefs Michael Mina and the late Ken Tominaga, of the famed Hana Japanese Restaurant in Sonoma County, PABU brings forth a modern take on traditional izakaya-style dining.

With both indoor and outdoor seating available – PABU Izakaya is a destination for world-class sashimi, sushi, grilled meats from the robata and seasonal cocktails, in addition to an extensive sake menu.

Our Menu
