KIRU: Cut.

In Japanese Haiku poetry, the cutting word that delivers a deeper meaning through division and juxtaposition, greater than the sum of its parts.

Japanese Fine Dining

Nestled in a double aspect building off King’s Road and overlooking quaint Chelsea Green, KIRU is a contemporary Japanese fine dining experience par excellence. At once authentic and innovative— the striking work of muralist HUSH provides an edgy yet elegant backdrop for Exec. Chef Taiji Maruyama’s course-able, choose-your-own culinary adventure. Three generations of Sushi Chefs in his family, 9 years with Nobu under his belt, and exposure (as an international celebrity Chef) to trends and techniques on the vanguard of Pan-European cuisine… Maruyama is in the unique position to make a generation-next statement on the contemporary Japanese fine dinning canon.  

Rounding off the KIRU experience, KIRU also boasts a full service Cocktail bar run by Beverage & Ops Director, Christian Pulido. Smart & sleek yet whimsical & convivial, Bar KIRU offers a diverse selection of Signature cocktails, wine & spirits the world over, and a carefully curated sake list.

Open lunch 4 days a week & dinner 6 days a week — with bar open late for a nightcap Monday-Saturday— your new local just became the next big thing.
