It really does seem that Hong Kong’s JC Group has a monopoly on some of the city’s highest-flying restaurants. How appropriate, then, that the acrobatic art of Japanese teppanyaki is taken up to the 19th floor of The One in Kowloon, along Nathan Road and not far from Tsim Sha Tsui station. Kaika’s pedigree is also assured by the fact that it is the first teppanyaki restaurant in Hong Kong with direct connections to the dining establishment in Japan, specifically the legendary Ginza Teppanyaki Kaika in Tokyo. Book a coveted spot here and survey the city as you dine on beautiful culinary creations made from daily-imported, premium Japanese ingredients.

Excellent teppanyaki meal. Restaurant updates their meals with excellent sauces for every dish. A red cabbage sauces sweetened with fruit to accompany the goose liver and figs. A lobster reduction for the perfectly herb cooked lobster. The waygu beef cooked perfectly medium rare was served with freshly fried garlic chips and a fine mound of red onions dressed with a yuzu vinegarette. The fried rice was new cooked with garlic, shistso leaves sesame and bonito excellent!!! The meals at Kaila is not to be missed.
Was a little disappointed they didn’t have their semi-buffet salad, and weekday lunch set. For someone who doesn’t eat sashimi, the Mon-Fri semi-buffet lunch set was a fantastic option for anyone, and gave the guest plenty of delicious options. Having said that, the Beef/Lobster set lunch was delicious. My friends were more than happy to eat my portion of the sashimi. We all felt as if we were being rushed along (taking of empty dishes, despite the fact some were still eating, and asking about coffee/tea before we finished our meal)... I would definitely go here again if they bring back the semi-buffet lunch set. Otherwise, I will spend my lunchtime elsewhere...
It’s got a recommendation from Michelin, made the best restaurant shortlist over at Hong Kong Tatler several years in a row, but it’s the incredible food, coupled with a peerless view, that speaks loudest when it comes to Kaika. This upscale sushi and teppanyaki restaurant towers over the competition from its lofty premises in Tsim Sha Tsui’s The One complex, with an spacious 2,500 square foot interior influenced by Zen aesthetics that allows the incredible food and drink on offer to be properly meditated over. The kitchen has embraced history too, with a consciousness of the Bunmei Kaika period, otherwise known as the Japanese Enlightenment, informing the kitchen’s approach to the relatively modern art of teppanyaki.
Before you order from Kaiki Sushi & Teppanyaki’s superb menu of Japanese dishes, a thorough perusal of the sake selection is a must. There are over 50 labels represented here, including junmai-shu, honjozo-shu, junmai ginjo-shu, ginjo-shu, junmai daiginjo-shu and daiginjo-shu varieties. With an example of these premium Japanese beverages at your side, it's time to explore Kaika’s incredible cuisine, featuring ingredients like Wagyu tenderloin from Hida and Hokkaido crab legs, ingredients flown in daily to the kitchen high in The One tower along Tsim Sha Tsui’s Nathan Road. The menus at Kaika are multiple, from the comprehensive a la carte selection and lunch menu through to the HSBC dinner menu, a semi-buffet option, a Japanese fruit and teppanyaki showcase and a popular Sunday brunch menu. Three opulent private dining rooms flank the main space for a truly VIP experience, though no matter where you sit you’ll be treated to one of the best views in Hong Kong. Bookings are essential.
