The four seasons influence every aspect of Japanese art and culture. At Kakui, we maintain this tradition by creating unique dishes using the freshest local ingredients. As the seasons change so does our menu, taking advantage of the local abundance. In this way, we are creating a contemporary cuisine that combines Japanese traditions with the best the Bay Area has to offer.

I request the order I want them served and request that they not be delivered together, but again that did not happen so I had to push my salad aside and eat the hot items. I can understand if it was a busy evening but there was only one other occupied table. I regularly come to the restaurant and have introduced several people so I wish for two things.....warm mushroom salad and my service request to be honored.

Great selection, great quality, and great service overall. There is always a bit of room for improvement in each area but this has been a reliable place to go for over a decade. The menu selection is larger and better than most. I think my only quibble is the wine and beer list is a little small and could use a couple of additions to round them out.
