If you haven’t been to Auradaze before then you’re in for a real treat. Every part of the Auradaze dining experience is authentic from the start and has been considered a little ‘Slice of Japan’, which is now open in Ambleside.

With all ingredients carefully selected from long trusted suppliers in Kobe, Yokohama and other parts of the world, Head Chef – Darren Yates, insists on selecting and sourcing the ingredients and produce himself to ensure quality and authenticity.

If food is your thing then see our Dining page for the full experience of what Auradaze brings to the table.

Do you want to master your own Japanese cuisine? Then our Japanese cookery school could be what you’ve been waiting for. Once a month on Sunday we offer the Auradaze Cookery School experience where you’ll be hands on in preparing and producing some authentic Japanese dishes and learning how to create your own authentic Japanese dining experience. See our Booking page for further details.

Whilst we offer a selection of Japanese soft drinks and speciality teas, selecting the right wine or alcoholic drink with Japanese food is very subjective, so we offer all customers the opportunity to bring your own booze to enjoy with your meal.

If you crave a fresh, fruity white wine, or you’re a full bodied red wine connoisseur, then enjoy your favourite food with your favourite tipple. 

Corkage fee applies £3.95 per person unlimited.

Sencha is a type of Japanese ryokucha (緑茶, green tea) which is prepared by infusing the processed whole tea leaves in hot water. The tea plays an important part of the Japanese culture whether it is for the Tea Ceremonies or as part of the dining experience.

It also comes many excellent health benefits, including the ability to lower your risk of cancer, prevent chronic disease, reduce blood pressure, balance cholesterol levels, aid weight loss efforts, protect the immune system, increase energy and stimulate cognitive activity. We pick the leaves you choose the tea.
