Sit on the floor on mats at low tables or grab one of the four barstools in this small and intimate, open air Japanese hideaway restaurant and indulge in home prepared, authentic Japanese specialties and sushi by a gracious Japanese chef and host. A bit of a hike up the hill, but worth the trek as you look over the grounds of this hideaway.
If you are looking for a change from the standard Thai fare as well as a refreshingly different atmosphere, this is a wonderful choice for an evening out in Koh Tao. A bit pricey, but not bad by western standards and worth the price.
Location -- on one of the main roads which point eastward from the Mae Head docks (the southernmost one) -- take it through the main part of town and keep walking a bit farther, look for a freestanding sign on your right and start hiking up the hill... you'll be glad you did. Don't worry, you'll find it. We walked 10 minutes from Sensi Paradise Resort, and found it without problem. Make a reservation - the place is small and well known with locals and some tourists, though the concierge are Sensi had no idea..

In one word WOW!
Amazing fresh seafood in an amazing cosy atmosphere!
Not the cheapest menu but for this quality you don't mind to pay a little bit more.
Must visit when you love Japanese food!

A great Japanese restaurant in Koh Tao. KaKuReYa is located up in the hill next to the pier with a nice view. Food is very tasty and fresh. Must go if you visit Koh Tao. What an atmosphere.
