The History of Nikkei



Every Flavor Tells A Story

In the late 1800’s, the first of many boats full of Japanese migrants reached the shores of Peru. These Japanese immigrants, known as the Nikkei people, were searching for work on sugar plantations and over the next few years the Japanese community became much bigger in Peru.

Many Japanese ingredients weren’t available at hand so the Nikkei people started using the Peruvian food with the Japanese technique. After integrating into the community over the next few decades, the cuisine developed through to the next generations and restaurants started opening. This is how the Nikkei cuisine was born. Through the combination of Peruvian and Japanese food, something wonderful was created.

Wines & Cocktails


After many years of planning and research, our Tayta dream has become a reality. In 2015, I was living in London and working as a Sommelier at hotspot Coya, which is a huge jungle themed venue in Mayfair that serves the Nikkei Cuisine to perfection. This is where my love for the cuisine started and over the next few years I visited many well known restaurants that served the Nikkei cuisine around the world as well as enjoyed cooking it at home for my family. I am excited to bring the Nikkei cuisine to the Gold Coast and hope everyone enjoys this unique and wonderful cuisine as much as we do.
