Historic Downtown

Kai Japanese Roots

When we set out to create a Japanese restaurant 2 years ago, we had already been doing business in Downtown Los Angeles for over two decades . The goal was to craft something that would not only be authentic to Japanese cuisine and aesthetics, but equally rooted in our historically rich environment.

Our guiding principle was to create a space that exemplifies the elegance of honesty and incorporates the vibrant rhythm of our surrounding environment, foremost in cuisine and design. Years of research, months of selection, hours of interviews and a trip to Japan led us to the point where we are proud to present our conception as Kai: Japanese Roots.
