Be welcomed like family
at this comfortable Japanese establishment,
Enjoy an evening of Kyoto-style cooking served
in a relaxed atmosphere
The word “Nada” comes from the Sanskrit word for sound, and in choosing that name, owner Yoko Araki aimed to evoke the idea of an orchestra.
Guests of various generations and occupations gather under one roof, and she wants to create a space that reverberates in a way that makes every diner comfortable.
Under Araki's baton, guests are provided with intimate hospitality in a comfortable space.
The restaurant's stylish Taisho-era Romanesque design comes from Araki's own former experience as a designer.
Her younger brother, Tetsuya, is in charge of the food, and he serves up home-style cooking using the skills he learned while working in the world of Kyoto cuisine.
Even the “obanzai” dishes lining the counter are created in the delicate Kyoto style. From boiled to stewed, the vegetable-focused menu is very popular with women.
It is the best of both fine dining and casual izakaya.
Their home-style dashi pairs well with any dish and enhances the taste of sake, and its rich, crisp flavour comes from thick-cut bonito shavings. Sashimi is served “Nada” style, with seasonal citrus fruits and rock salt or citron salt.
The restaurant will also adjust both content and quantity to accommodate the number and makeup of your dinner party.
The siblings often visit producers where they work as they has a strong belief in the importance of ingredients.
One such ingredient is Miyazaki herb beef, which they purchase directly from the farm. The beef tenderloin cutlet provides a rich, red-meat flavour that pairs well with a glass of domestic wine.
The staff cultivate an exquisite sense of closeness with their guests, a sense of comfort that makes you think, "Let's stay just a little bit longer."
