Amami was inspired by the Goddess of creation, Amamikju. The Amami islands, named after this goddess, are located southwest of Kyushu which is the third largest of Japan’s five main islands.

As the myth goes, the Heavenly Emperor Amamikju gathered grasses, trees and stones to build the islands.

This process of creation has similarly inspired us to source the best produce and the finest ingredients.

At the hands of our talented team, these are transformed into an array of authentic Japanese dishes, from our handcrafted sushi through to our robata-grilled dishes.

Our privileged location in the heart of Mellieha, with its breath-taking views of Ghadira Bay, also ensures our guests a truly unforgettable experience, whether they are joining us for lunch or dinner.

Amami is also available for private functions, from corporate events to weddings and parties.
