Launched in October 2017, AUN is a small, independent restaurant bringing the Japanese concept of ‘wakon yosai’ to the heart of Stoke Newington.
This idea of learning western techniques without losing a Japanese spirit translates as imaginatively presented dishes that create delicious Japanese flavours using European ingredients
alongside traditional ones.
AUN (あ吽) - pronounced as “A-Un”, means inspiration and expiration. Coming from the traditional Japanese saying: “aun no kokyu”, it is a delicate,
perfectly balanced harmony between those who work together.
Served in a tapas/izayaka style, our seasonal five course set menus intent to show you varieties of Japanese cuisine with our own touch. Signature dishes include Oyster Ajillo with Crispy Nori
cracker, Aubergine with Smoky Mustard Miso Sauce, Sundried Tomato Shiso Sushi Roll and the AUN original flavour Haccho Dark Miso gelato.
