My style of food is not always traditional Japanese food. There are so many tasty meals I can introduce you to.
I see so many fresh, seasonal local ingredients in Somerset. So I decided to take in some new ideas from where I live and put that together with my memories of street food in Japan.
My focus for my food is just simple, honest and exciting, plus it has got to be tasty.
Anyone, everyone can enjoy it!

Hideki Koike


Born in Ashikaga, Tochigi, Japan.

I left Japan when I was 21 years old, lived in London, Bristol and then Cornwall.

Worked in AA rosette award restaurants, pubs and hotels and I then moved to Somerset as the Head Chef at the Lord Poulett Arms, Hinton St George.

After this I won a catering contract with the South West HQ of the NHS Strategic Health Authority, and during this time I began my Japanese catering business.

Now, I travel all over the South West bringing my delicious food to you all!
