With various high quality proteins such as Tuna Poke, Grilled Salmon, Loco Moco, Or Mochico Tempeh, accompanied with fresh vegetables and served over aromatic basmati rice, you better get ready for a treat. Everything is cooked fresh right in front of you. Since our kitchen and storage is extremely small, we get fresh deliveries daily which also makes sure our food can maintain its high standards.

All KOA meals are served in bio, sustainable, compostable PLA(made from plants) bowls, cups and utensils. Please note, all prices are in Euros and subject to change due to change in market price of fresh ingredients such as Tuna, pineapple, Alaea sea salt etc. We will always do our best to notify guests through our social media about price changes and availability of certain exotic and difficult to source ingredients.
