If you're looking for a wonderful meal with fresh tastes of Japan, this is the right place. The 9 course meal was too much. Really too much. Too much food, too many choices, and too good to skip or not finish. The service was great,...More

My spouse took me to Kappa for a special anniversary, and I was totally surprised. First, there's the slightly mysterious experience of showing up at unmarked, almost invisible wooden door inside an unremarkable building in Japantown. Next, the door slides open, and a hostess in...More

Up the stairs in front of 1700A, one floor up. Open Mondays to Saturdays from 6pm. Recommend booking as it's tiny. Don't miss!

If you are looking for an authentic, Japanese meal, look no further! Kappa is hard to find, but a delight in a small setting. Personable owners (wife wears a kimono and serves, husband is the chef); beautiful and delicious food - a very memorable experience...More

A 'must try' for anyone passionate about authentic Japanese cuisine, specifically the Koryori style. This is a tiny establishment (8 seats) with a limited opening. Like most guests, we opted for the seven course omakase (chef's menu) at $85/ea. Each dish was a work of...More

Kappa is not your typical Japanese restaurant. What makes it special is that it focuses on omakase, which means diners let the chef decide what he thinks is best in terms of the food that he would like to serve you that night. This is...More
