Why we love it

Kansai Kitchen is a passion project from Liam, a Bristolian who enjoys nothing more than cooking his favourite Japanese dishes from his time in Japan. They only sell dishes as they are served in Japan - not adjusted for the western market - which means they use traditional Japanese ingredients, cooking techniques and presentation.

Kansai Kitchen are now in permanent residence at the Hillgrove - providing yet another excuse to keep popping up to this most excellent of pubs and sample Kansai Kitchen's small but changing menu of stunning Japanese food.


If you are passionate about Japanese food, or are simply a culinary adventurer with a taste for trying new things, you will lose your proverbial over the 8 course Japanese Feast for 2-3 people. A true taste sensation from a man who really knows what he's talking about.

Great food at a great price, we had every vegetarian dish on the menu and they were all delicious!


Incredible food prepared by the most accommodating chef, who didn't mind at all that we had 2 vegetarians and 1 coeliac in our group, and prepared everything so that we were all very happy eaters!
