Kata was designed to be a rich, luxurious setting to enjoy the best Japanese cuisine. The entrance captivates with its eye-catching burgundy acrylic arches, elegantly illuminated by embedded LED lights. The custom hand-painted mural by the Hong Kong based artist Wong Ting Fung represents a fusion between East and West, and adds a slightly edgy twist to the luxurious atmosphere. The Robata grill show kitchen, enclosed in glass and bronze, is a real showpiece. As is the Raw Bar, a dark gem hidden in the bright interior, which creates a cozy and intimate atmosphere that lets the food shine.
