Offering an authentic Japanese fine dining ‘Kaiseki’ experience in Downtown Dubai, Kohantei promises to delight guests with an experience like no other.
The traditional Japanese restaurant concept serves up delicate, elegant dishes using the finest Japanese produce, which revolve around an ancient Japanese ‘Kaiseki’ menu, and will continually evolve depending on ingredients that are in season.
The Kaiseki multi-course concept involves an elaborate series of exquisite dishes meticulously served in a humble, intimate setting, to be enjoyed over two to three hours. The menu has been lovingly created by Executive Chef Hisao Ueda, from a treasure chest of exceptional seasonal ingredients which are personally sourced from Japan. Guests have the choice of a la carte dining or five multi-course menus featuring premium Japanese beef and seafood.
Kohantei embodies the centuries-old tradition of Omotenashi – the spirit of Japanese hospitality. With traditionally dressed Japanese staff and authentic Japanese architecture, every detail transports guests to Japan.
Think handmade tableware, storied Japanese artwork, sliding shōji doors and traditional tatami flooring. Every element of the space has been created to provide warmth and serenity. Paying homage to Japanese customs, guests are gently reminded to remove their shoes inside the restaurant, which only serves to accentuate the authentic experience.
With three private dining rooms and an intimate dining area with five exclusive tables, Kohantei is the hidden gem of Downtown Dubai’s Dubai Opera District and will take guests on a culinary journey through the true essence of Japanese culture.
