Owner Chef Shinpei Tanaka
After over 20 years of training in Chinese cuisine at hotels, he became independent in December 2020. My hobby is eating out with my wife.

Ikkana Tanaka opened in December 2020 on the site of the former Shanghai Band and attracted attention. Not only is it located on the site of a famous restaurant, but it quickly became a hot topic due to the deliciousness of its food, and it quickly became a popular restaurant. It was awarded the Bib Gourmand in the Michelin Guide Kyoto 2023, and is gaining more and more attention. In the kitchen is the owner, Chef Shinpei Tanaka.

Shumai, with its unique use of ingredients, is made with mozzarella cheese, semi-dried tomatoes, pork belly, onions, and spicy seafood all in one dish. Three types of shumai 880 yen

Mr. Tanaka has had a successful career both as a chef and as a restaurant owner, and is busy every day. What I value most in these days is enjoying delicious food and drinks with my wife. That's why the restaurant doesn't open for lunch, and you can make a reservation for lunch from 2pm, which is unique to this restaurant.

The menu remains almost the same day and night, with a wide variety of dishes that go well with alcohol, including dim sum, grilled dishes, and seasonal dishes. ``I want to value the sense of season, so I change the blackboard menu once a month.The other day I ate a bear dish and it was delicious, so I thought I'd like to try it too,'' says the chef. The way he enjoys food is also expressed in his dishes.

``I want to expand the restaurant in the future. If the kitchen becomes larger, I think the range of dishes I can make will expand,'' he says, keeping an eye on this restaurant as it becomes even more powerful. Because it is a bar, use of the store is limited to elementary school students and older.
