But don't expect the traditional! Rhys Watson-Lamb puts his own twist on Japanese food using some incredible Australian native ingredients, great local produce and pairing them with Japanese flavours. He is inspired by the small laneway bars of Tokyo and the incredible Kaiseki restaurants of Kyoto, bringing the best to the Sydney dining scene.
Restaurant Manager, Tom Sinclair, and his team have also selected some killer Japanese whiskies and sake to enjoy alongside the menu. They've also brought together ingredients like yuzu, sake and natural local botanicals to create an incredibly unique signature cocktail list.

Ian has been involved as a Director with the group since Mejico opened in Sydney in 2013, providing guidance and advice, in particular with the group’s expansion into his home town of Melbourne in 2020
A hospo-veteran, Karen moved from London 17 years ago. With a career working for Antonio Carluccio and Jamie Oliver, among others, she’s been with the group 6 years. She is now firmly settled in Australia, with no intention of returning to the UK and her two loves of food and live music, are easily satisfied across Melbourne and Sydney.
Always inspired by travel, Amanda has worked in kitchens in Uluru and Tasmania before heading abroad to London for 10 years. Working alongside the Great British Menu judge Oliver Peyton, Amanda brings unique experience to the SPHG team.
Jamie moved to Australia over 5 years ago, and has been in the company for over 4 years. He started out as a waiter and has worked in every venue. Jamie is now our Group General Manager spanning Melbourne and Sydney.
Our resident expert on all things beverage - whether it’s gin, tequila or sake, Max has the answer. Having moved to Australia 7 years ago, Max has now settled in Bondi with his family. He’s a massive fan of Disco drinks but finds it hard to look past a well made classic marg.
Tom came to Australia in 2016 and started at Mejico as a waiter the day he landed. He has worked his way around all our venues in different roles before recently moving back to Sydney from Melbourne to join the venue team here. He loves being able to give every guest the best experience possible and helping them celebrate! Absolutely loves a Japanese beer and our Daikon Mochi!
The boy from Coffs moved to Sydney at the age of 20, hungry to experience life. He’s worked in some of Sydney’s best restaurants; Mr Wong, China Lane, Lumi and Bentley, before moving to Kid Kyoto when we opened in late 2017. Rhys brings his daring and creative food style to the financial heart of the city and when he is not perfecting the best Japanese/Australian flavour combinations, he’s drinking a traditional Negroni!
