True Japanese kaiseki in Indianapolis.

Masterful preparation, plating, and presentation.

We offer our prix fixe menu, the 7-course for $89 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.

The food and service were exquisite. Some of the best food I’ve ever had the opportunity to enjoy. The multi course meal was planned around appropriate flavors, textures and paired excellently with the server’s educated recommendations.

We’ll be definitely revisit soon.

If you want an authentic Japanese dining experience, this is the place for you. The staff is knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The food is delicious. The filet was the best I've ever had. If you can get a reservation to this place, you should.

Truly amazing food paired nicely. Service was spot on with nice description of the courses and attention to drinks. My only negative was it was too bright in the restaurant. Dimming the lights would be a nice touch.

I really wanted to like this place. Love multi course meals and the reviews I read were encouraging. Unfortunately the December menu was just not good. It’s very brightly lit, the courses were not well paced even though there’s only one menu option and you have to have a reservation, and the food was bland and in some cases texturally offensive. Maybe just a poor menu month because the November patrons seemed to love it.

If you are looking to treat yourself with a truly special meal, then go to Hinata. I’ve been here twice and both times it was a unique and delicious experience. That’s what Hinata is, a true experience. The set menu changes monthly. The food is absolutely divine. The sommelier matched the most perfect wine and sake to have alongside each course. We can’t wait to go to Hinata again soon.

It was a nice experience. Servers were attentive, they were on top of things—clearing our plates when we were finished, refilled our water. Each food came out within minutes. There wasn’t a huge wait timing in between dishes. Appetizers were served within minutes after drink orders were taken. Dishes were presented like works of art. Food was delicious. I like how they left the menu on the table so patrons will know what food is coming up next.

Restaurant was very clean. You are met at the door by the host and seated immediately. The host suggests drinks or you can pick from a variety of wins. Dinner service starts within 5 minutes of sitting down.
Al servers explain each portion brought out to the table, is a wonderful restaurant experience.
