Japanese restaurant opened in Kolkata
'K' House Food India, which is an extension to the 'K' House's food chain Kyoto Gin Yuba in Japan, on Thursday opened a sixty-seater Japanese restaurant and bar in Kolkata named 'Matsuri'.
Mitsuo Kawaguchi,Consulate General of Japan in Kolkata, actress Rituparna Sengupta and Parno Mittra were present at the inauguration of the restaurant.
Takeshi Kogahara,Chairman, K House Food India said, "With Matsuri, we hope to bring not just the Japanese Food in India but also the Japanese culture and therefore we got a Japanese artist to paint Zenkoji Shrine of Nagano on one of the walls."
Palash Banerjee, Managing Director, Matsuri, said, "Our first outlet 'AOI' which is now called 'FUJI' has received an overwhelming response and I hope Matsuri does equally well. We try to connect both the countries via the medium of food and since all our ingredients are imported from Japan, we shall also have few ingredients at display to make people more aware of Japanese food."
