Purity, focus, quality. Kataori was an exceptional meal. Worth the journey and the contortions required to get a seat. Kanazawa is a lovely city to explore - make sure you stay a while as well.

Kataori 片折 3rd visit — best experience here so far. Loved how Kataori san showcased the color and purity of late spring ingredients. The botan ebi was huge and sweet; first time seeing so many live hotaru ika simply boiled in dashi, pure taste of the ocean and umami. •

Kataori 片折 2nd visit — I was even more impressed by the natural flow of the courses and the purity of the ingredients than the first time. Highlights were shirako on ice; freshly caught maguro slightly cut to soften the texture; and grilled shiitake which smelled like heaven. Looking forward to next time! •

Back for winter menu. Quality was top notch as always, although still shy of the first visit. The fresh tuna belly had a tougher texture than normal so some insane knife skills were used to balance the texture. Shirako on ice also gives the shirako more grip but the highlights for me were the shiitake and crab dishes.

First visit in the summer at Kataori. I was looking forward to eat the seasonal vegetables and seafood. As always Chef Takuya Kataori did not disappoint. His skills and palate is remarkable. Only established in 2018 he is now ranked just behind Ogata in Kyoto in the #2 spot for kaiseki restaurants in all of Japan. Even more remarkable is the fact that he spent his entire career in Kanazawa and was never trained in Kyoto or Tokyo. His dedication to source the best ingredients is incredible. He built... More

Most likely the best Kaiseki restaurant in Kanazawa. Especially in the snow crab (Kano-gani) season. If you have your timing right, you come during the very short reason for the female snow crab (Kobako-gani), called "flavour box" in Japanese for its wonderful taste. And if you are really lucky, Takuya Kataori, the Chef/Owner picked up some Matsutake from Suzu.
Kataori-san kills the Kobako-gani right in front of you and the gently grills the legs on the Binchōtan grill. He feels when it is perfectly... More

Dinner at a very traditional Kaiseki place in Kanasawa. The young Chef indulged us five diners with 2 massive snow crabs which we ate completely in various courses.
The legs which he just grilled for a few minutes on the kappo grill on the counter were just sublime. Nothing added to them, just warmed in the shell for a few minutes and cut into halves.
A feast for eye and palate!
