The Geshia Haus in Potts Point is a lively and decadent lounge serving sophisticated, modern Japanese fare matched with a killer cocktail list.
Smoking Geisha $20
We started our meal with this dark and complex cocktail served from a cinnamon smoke filled decanter that contained a shaken cocktail made from mezcal tequila, t2 russian caravan tea, punt e mes, agave syrup and pomegranate molasses. It’s almost mystical watching the thick smoke billow from the decanter as the rich dark liquid almost slides into the glass.
Accompanying it’s dark and brooding counterpart was this radiant pink beauty containing larious 12 gin, contreau, t2 gorgeous geisha tea, mixed berry syrup and a dash of rhubarb bitters, served in a brandy balloon with edible wildflowers frozen in a ice sphere.
Large Chefs Selection of Sashimi $52
Have you ever seen something this beautiful? The brilliant colours of this dish were enough to make me stare in wonderment until my all consuming hunger took over. Each piece of fish was expertly prepared and stunningly presented in this nitrogen cloaked dish.
Miso Cod $24
Marinated for 24 hours and served on baby cos with a fresh Japanese salsa. These bite size morsels were incredibly tender, simply melting in your mouth. The infused flavour of the cod was delicious enough to have us ordering seconds.
Edo Fire $18
The Edo Period in Japan saw the creative art lit alight, just as this amazing cocktail was. Watching the skilled bartender pour the flaming mix back and forth was simply mesmerising.
This delicious mix of Mt Gay Rum, Drambuie and Benedictine infused with Chai and Citrus Peel is set ablaze right at the table then left to cool for your drinking pleasure. An exciting bit of entertainment to go with your dinner.
Seared Salmon Roll $22
Skillfully rolled packages of prawn, cucumber and creamy ponzu sauce topped with flame seared salmon and crispy eshallots. Each mouthful was an explosion of flavour that left us satisfied, smiling and rubbing our full bellies.
Green Tea Martini
The high art of the geishas is captured in this elaborate cocktail made at the table in Geshia Haus’ rendition of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony using boiling water and liquid nitrogen combined with belvedere vodka, matchta green tea, midori, kiwi fruit puree and yuzu juice.
Slow Cooked Pork Belly
To finish the meal was this absolutely delicious pork belly dish. The meat itself was exquisitely tender, literally falling to bits and melting in our mouths. Adding a nice textural balance was the crisp pork scratching, adding a pleasurable crunch to the mix.
Geisha Haus with their excellent food and impressive drinks is a fantastic place to chill out with friends or enjoy with that special someone.
