With a deep-rooted focus on sustainability, minimizing waste, environmental consciousness, and, of course, the three essential elements that embody the dedication, culture, and authenticity of Japanese cuisine, Koki Restaurant pledges to continue pushing the boundaries of culinary innovation.
Reigning at the top of Izakaya’s gastronomic offerings is Head Chef Yamaguchi, whose wealth of experience and unparalleled expertise allows him to create a symphony of flavors with only the freshest ingredients sourced from Japan. His culinary creations are not only visually stunning but also exquisitely gratifying to the palate, reflecting the harmonious union of umami (the fifth taste), kansha (deep respect for ingredients), and omotenashi (the art of Japanese hospitality). Every dish crafted by Chef Yamaguchi embodies a flawless equilibrium of flavors, showcasing his profound mastery of the culinary arts.
Looking ahead, the future for Koki Restaurant and Izakaya under the steadfast guidance of Head Chef Yamaguchi and consultant chef Yoshida Junichi, the first Michelin-Teppanyaki Chef, is boundless. Driven by an insatiable quest for culinary exploration, they are poised to explore a myriad of Vietnamese ingredients while incorporating rare and unique Japanese elements, resulting in stunning combinations showcased within the menu of Koki’s main dining Izakaya.
Experiencing Izakaya cuisine means experiencing a Japanese cultural space. At Koki, the elements that revolve around that helps the food becoming a shining star, are also always focused by Chef Yamaguchi.
