KAI Japanese Roots



Our Story


Just two years ago, we had a brilliant concept for creating a Downtown LA sushi restaurant. One that would do the Japanese culture proud. Modeled after the most renowned restaurants in all of Japan and helmed by our star Chef Fujita, we bring fresh ingredients and an exciting array of Japanese libations to the table. Come see why we’re different!
