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.

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.

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.

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.

The service was outstanding, the food was so fresh and the presentation of the food was also great. We had the 8 course meal and the time between courses was well timed. Highly recommend it and we look forward to coming back soon.
