As one of Asheville’s premier Japanese hotspots, located next to the iconic Orange Peel, UKIAH provides a range of options for your group for the perfect celebration. Its cuisine boasts Japanese Soul Food merged with American BBQ, which provides a unique and delicious experience for all of your guests.

The menus, created by James Beard Nominated Chef Michael Lewis, are served to the center of your table, perfectly coursed for your guests to enjoy. We also offer a wide range of hand-crafted cocktails, local beer + Japanese whisky as well as beverage pairings selected to enhance your meal.

We can cater to all types of gatherings, including rehearsal dinners, business meetings, showers, brunches, luncheons, birthdays, bachelor and bachelorette, retirements, anniversaries, and weddings.

Sample Menu Overview

This menu is designed to emulate the eating + drinking dens of “Golden Gai” in Tokyo. It’s a relaxed, free flowing menu of crispy, crunchy alongside chilled and wood fired skewers. We recommend grabbing a Sapporo or Sake, pulling up a chair and chatting with friends. Let us do the hard work.
If we had a “Best Of” category, this would be it. The favorites of Ukiah brought together in harmony. We make sure that we touch on all the crowd pleasers, different cooking techniques and textures to create a menu that all your guests will love.
Named after the upmarket shopping region in Toyko, filled with ritzy cocktail and sushi bars, this menu is designed with one thing in mind, luxury. Think oysters, wagyu + ribeye to take your celebration one step further.
