True Japanese kaiseki in Indianapolis.

Masterful preparation, plating, and presentation.

We offer our menu in two tiers, the 89 and 120 dollar menu. The latter menu augments the dishes with more premium produce, fish, and meat along with an additional course. We will call to confirm your menu selection 24 hours in advance.

We only offer true Japanese cuisine at Hinata, and thus unfortunately with the limited size of our kitchen cannot accommodate guests with Celiac Disease or vegans.

Phenomenal experience with incredibly presented and delicious food. You want to have an open palate for the Kaiseke dinner (multi-course prix fix menu so you order the entire dinner and not off an a la carte menu.)

Highly recommend!

I came here recently to celebrate my anniversary with my significant other and we both had the $89 Akane menu. Shane the sommelier also came and had a lengthy discussion about which sakes he recommended with the flavors, and also brought us a sample to try before making a decision. The food was excellent; wide variety of flavors and textures that were just as exciting as the previous dish. The ingredients were fresh and wonderfully prepared. Hinata definitely offers the best and most authentic Japanese food in Indy in my experience. The restaurant itself is classy and refined; great place to come for a date. The staff are also welcoming and provide great service. I'm happy with my experience at Hinata and hope to have come back soon to experience their premium menu.

Amazing. This is what Indianapolis needs right now. Every dish was perfectly executed and the tastes, smells, and textures were almost sensory overload. I can’t recommend this place enough. Go!

I dine here on a regular basis, often bringing friends and associates to introduce them to this wonderful cuisine. Mr. Nakajima, chef Aki, and Shane, the knowledgeable sommelier, go above and beyond to make sure each evening is unique and a memorable experience.

Shane provides amazing service and wine recommendations. All staff are professional and friendly. The food was superb. Definitely a full experience. The decor was light and open. We enjoyed the music selection. It added a nice ambiance to the experience. It was easy to hold conversations with the staff and my husband. It’s 5 star dining without being pretentious.

Fantastic meal! So glad we finally have Japanese fine dining in Indianapolis. I have eaten a lot of Japanese fine dining all over the country, and Hinata is just as good as the ones in Chicago, LA, and San Francisco.

This is a must-do if you desire a high-end Japanese experience! We relished in the 9-course meal with a one of kind wine pairing. With the pandemic limiting our experiences, this was a special treat! Be prepared for an especially high price tag comparable to St. Elmos. Enjoy the experience knowing that you aren't dining at yet another Indianapolis steak house.

Wonderful! Definitely a place to go for special occasions, the preset menu and wine pairings were very thoughtfully arranged and made for one of the most enjoyable evenings I've had in a while. Pacing was perfect for a multi-course meal, and the dishes were simply stunning. Wait staff were very knowledgeable. Looking forward to returning.
