About Dashi Japanese Alresford

Dashi is a crucial ingredient in Japanese cooking. It is a stock that is made from water, Kombu (kelp) and Katsuoboshi (dried flakes of the Bonito fish). Dashi is used as a component in many sauces and marinades, adding what the Japanese call ‘umami’ taste into dishes.

At Dashi Japanese Alresford we have extensive knowledge and passion for Japanese ingredients, techniques and tastes. It’s a very different cuisine to European and even other Asian cuisines with an eclectic mix of preparation and almost artistic presentation.

Although predominantly fish and sushi, our menu also includes lots of different types of cooking including steamed and grilled as well as a variety of vegetables and meats.

Dining the Japanese way is also different - in stead of starters, mains, desserts, it’s more like tapas. We encourage you to order and share a few items at a time and try from different sections of the menu. The result is a more leisurely dining experience.

We hope you enjoy!

We both love Japan and Japanese food. Eating at Dashi was just like being in Japan. Thoroughly loved it.

My friend and I had a lovely meal but we were the only customers so it would have been lovely if more people there. It was a little bit cold in the restaurant but as I didn’t say anything it’s hard to complain now.Food was delicious. If you do any cookery courses or demos on Japanese cooking I would love to be informed Many thanks

On previous visits we loved the food and service but on Saturday it was VERY slow. Each person’s meals were served at different times. It was so slow that we didn’t stay for dessert when ordinarily we would have done. Very put off by this Saturday evening experience

Outstanding food and service. Owner is friendly and knowledgeable. Japanese food may seem complicated if you are unfamiliar with it, but here they will guide you though if needed. We had never eaten proper Japanese before and they made it easy for us. Highly recommend.

we had set menu for 4, there was a little too much fried food in the selection, we'd have preferred some more variety.
