THE NORTH MEETS JAPAN IN THE CAPE OF THE ARCHIPELAGO
The word Kai, has several meanings in Japanese. Shell and ocean are two. Creativity, architecture and innovation are further meanings that make Kai such a fitting name for our neighborhood restaurant by the sea at Björkholmen in Karlskrona.
These concepts lead us in what we explore together.
We want you as a guest with us to have a holistic experience from the first step into what is served on a plate.
At Kai, we create flavors with the whole of Asia as a source of inspiration, especially Japan. There in Tokyo, Robert Carlsson, one of the founders of Kai, took a job as a 23-year-old to learn and develop. Today, twenty years later, the inspiration from Asia is always present when Robert and his team develop a Nordic Japanese kitchen with mainly Scandinavian ingredients of the highest class. Thus, even if the cooking methods are not the ones we are most used to, you will recognize most of the ingredients on the plate.
Our absolute focus is sustainability so you can be sure that you will never find anything red-listed on our menu.
With that said, we would like to warmly welcome you to our Kai experience!
