Our Story

The Kata Nori Hand Roll Bar is a new dining concept in ​downtown Kansas City, and it is the first of its kind in the city, ​focusing on the artistry of sushi hand rolls and crudos. We aim ​to bring a fresh and unique addition to Kansas City's culinary ​scene.

The design of Kata Nori Hand Roll Bar features a sleek and ​modern aesthetic, creating a hip, comfortable, and inviting ​atmosphere for diners. The seating arrangement consists of an ​intimate U-shaped counter, where patrons can watch as the ​sushi chefs prepare and present each roll individually. This ​setup allows for quick service and ensures maximum freshness, ​providing a taste of the chef-led omakase experience.

Heading the culinary team at Kata Nori is Chef Anh Pham, who ​brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Kansas City. ​With over 20 years of experience in the sushi industry, Chef ​Pham previously served as the lead chef at Uchi, a renowned ​sushi restaurant in Texas. His expertise and dedication to quality ​will contribute to the exceptional dining experience at Kata Nori.

The founders of Kata Nori Hand Roll Bar, Nam Phan and Kyung ​Kim, express their pride in being part of the Kansas City ​community and they believe that their commitment to quality, ​service, and their dedication to the city will set their ​establishment apart and make it a destination for food ​enthusiasts and sushi lovers from across the state.
