La Kanro

Osaka Innovative

An artfully innovative restaurant which offers an extraordinary culinary experience and captivates guests with its charm.

La Kanro, an innovative cuisine restaurant, relocated to its current address in September 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Prior to the move and before the pandemic, La Kanro had earned a Michelin star, gaining immense popularity in Osaka to the extent that reservations were extremely difficult to make. It also underwent significant changes to its interior look after the relocation,.

The front door is unlocked upon pressing the intercom on the 1st floor and after proceeding through a mysterious approach, guests reach an elevator to the 2nd floor.

La Kanro features private rooms which are reminiscent of a casino, as well as tranquil private spaces and a 6-seat counter in front of an open kitchen. Its ambiance is truly that of an “atmospheric restaurant”.

Head Chef Junichi Nakamine trained at a Michelin 2-star establishment in Paris before returning to Japan and further honed his skills and learned about communication with guests and the depth of Japanese ingredients in Osaka. He states that his concept is “to share an extraordinary experience of space and cuisine from the moment guests steps into our restaurant”. An astonishing total of 30 dishes is offered in his course meal, each which has evolved from a single inspiration into an unique culinary creation.
Chef Nakamine’s dishes are true works of art, beautifully presented and overflowing with originality. Guests are guaranteed to be captivated by the touch of the extraordinary upon setting foot into La Kanro.

Now in its second chapter, La Kanro is undoubtedly poised to make its mark as a top innovative restaurant, not only in the Kansai region of Osaka, Kyoto, and Kobe, but also as a trailblazer for Japan as a whole.
