What is Kaiseki?


Kaiseki is a Japanese traditional multi-course meal that has been a tradition in Japan from the 1500s. Kaiseki chefs have hundreds of cutting and cooking techniques to make each and every single dish a distinct taste and also visually beautiful.

At Kaiseki Sanga, Executive Chef Shimatani's team sources their ingredients both locally and internationally to create a special and one-of-a-kind taste.

Our goal is to provide an exceptional and authentic experience, where no other restaurant in the world is comparable.
