Omotenashi

What is “Kaiseki” ?

Omotenashi

Kaiseki is a style of traditional Japanese cuisine served in a series of small and intricate dishes. Kaiseki consists of three important elements.

  1. seasonal ingredients
  2. simple seasoning
  3. present it with hospitality

Kaiseki cuisine has been developed in Japan based on Sado, a Japanese tea manner. It originated from Wabi-Sabi, a kind of Japanese cultural spirit. Mostly, the Kaiseki dishes are small and simple, but each taste is established with very special and skilled techniques.

Eigikutei strives to improve ourselves every day, taking the smiles of our customers as our joy. Please enjoy the sensitive and beautiful kaiseki cuisine course, full of seasonal seafoods and vegetables to your heart’s content.

Japanese Hospitality, “OMOTENASHI”

Eigikutei focuses on the traditional Japanese style to serve both Japanese dishes and services in a perfect Japanese atmosphere. This is called ”Omotenashi” in Japanese, meaning hospitality focusing on perfect care for all guests. Also, our servers wear Kimono, a Japanese traditional dress, showing their hospitality to all guests.

Our Commitment to Ingredients with “UMAMI”

Eigikutei uses selected ingredients our chefs choose with their professional eyes. Our chefs control “UMAMI”, a source of tastes and flavors to create simple but deep dishes.

Some of the fish are imported from Japan directly. We also use seasonal live fish distributed locally. Regarding beef, we use A5 Miyazaki beef for shabu-shabu.

Every dish is harmonized with our dashi broth and UMAMI developed with our long-time experience and special techniques.

Japanese Sake and Wines Good for Kaiseki

Absolutely a gem. Love this place. We had a fantastic birthday dinner and the main chef was a delight. We got to try some things we have never had. The value was great and we were full. We had the sushi keiseki and loved it all. The variety was great and the food was served in a very well paced manner. Highly recommended

The service has a lot room to improve compared to the food: our waitress took away the half-finished drink without asking, we also felt pressure to rush at the end of our course.

All of the servers were very engaging, friendly, and helpful. Leila, Hiromi, Yukari and Toyoma. The only item we weren't keen on was the rice porridge. The outside of the building doesn't do the inside justice We loved the wide tables as well.

The food taste amazing! I had 2 fish bones in two pieces of my nigiri, but that doesn’t take away from the amazing tasting food. We got the Mai course and the Ai course. Our server seems to not be very knowledgeable on her sake. We ordered a sparkling Dassai and asked her if it was a nigori, and she told me not, but it was indeed a nigori. She also wasn’t too sure what kind of dish was on my nigiri omakase plate. She sounded not confident and swallowing her voice while she was introducing the fish. I can barely hear her speak even though she was only 2 feet away from me. Other than that, food was amazing, my husband and I will be back.

Where do I begin? I've loved Japanese food for decades, and this place offers some of the best service and cuisine I've experienced. The restaurant has a very relaxing ambiance and is impeccably clean—no dust anywhere (lol). I believe cleanliness is the restaurant's top priority. If you enjoy Japanese food, you won't be disappointed here!

We came to Eigikutei to celebrate a recent event with their Vegan Kaiseki set menu. Staff was accommodating, atmosphere was relaxed, and the food was incredible. It’s hard to pick a favorite from the menu as everything was so outstanding. We will definitely be back again for the vegan kaiseki! ✨
