WAKURIYA is comprised of two words: one from “WA” that means “Japanese”, “harmony”, and “gentle” in Japanese; another from “KURIYA” that means “kitchen” used in ancient Japan. We combine these two words to form WAKURIYA as our restaurant name with strong passion to present a new style of Japanese cuisine: one that maintains its deep roots in authentic Japanese culture and tradition, yet breathes new life into a deliciously innovative cuisine.
It is our hope that you will enjoy our Japanese cuisine with carefully selected sake and wine at WAKURIYA.
