Farm-to-table Japanese dining experience: Kushitei brings us authentic omakase-style kushiage from one of Japan’s celebrated exponents of deep-fried, skewer-led seasonal cuisine. The brand began with a boutique kushiage eatery in Ebisu, Toyko in 2019 and quickly garnered a cult following for its lively atmosphere & perfectly fried batter. It now boasts 10 branches in Japan’s key cities, with Hong Kong being its first overseas venture.

Look & Feel:  Conveniently located at Grand Centre in Humphreys Avenue within the heart of bustling Tsim Sha Tsui, Kushitei brings a renowned name to Hong Kong. Keeping the same cozy vibe as its counterpart in Japan, the Hong Kong outpost exudes a sense of conviviality amid an authentic kushiage vibe. Within an intimate space of over 1,000 sq. ft., mood lighting reflects off the wood-clad interior to illuminate the 9-seat counter and its surrounding tables that accommodate another 12 diners. The restaurant promises a joyful sanctuary, offering a relaxing rendezvous for casual omakaze-style dining and imbibing.

On the Menu: Kushitei presents an enticing combination of two omakase menus that embrace the changing seasons with exclusive free-range Kurosatsuma chicken from Kagoshima. The secret to the restaurant’s light & crispy batter is a special kneading powder of breadcrumbs that promises thin, even coating. With the batter coated around the best harvest from land & sea, you’re guaranteed to have your cravings satiated. They’ve gone the extra mile to curate a list of Japanese sake and fruit wines that complement the crispy indulgence of the house. This features the brand’s own sake label, Kushitei, which is a must-try.
