Nanaya Japanese Kitchen is a cozy izakaya-style restaurant new in Arcadia. We specialize in MSG-free ramen, katsu sandos, sashimi, fried ribs, and craft cocktails. We can’t wait to welcome in our neighbors and show you all a taste of homestyle Japanese food.

Nanaya translates to 菜々や in Japanese — 菜 or “na” is the symbol for “greens” or “vegetables” while や or “ya” can be interpreted as “home”. In the past, it was common for Japanese stores and restaurants to double as both a business and home for the families that operated them.

To us, Nanaya represents family-centered culture to be shared with the community. Much like a traditional izakaya, or Japanese-style pub, we incorporate comfort and sense of community through our home-styled seating and dishes to be shared with the whole table. See you soon!

Fellow Nanaya lovers, in this time of social distancing and safe practices, a dear employee came in contact with COVID-19 over the holidays with family. This is very unfortunate and we must act diligently and, above all else, responsibly. Although none of our other employees are showing any symptoms, we are choosing to be proactive and getting everyone tested as soon as possible. This way we can return and reopen with utmost confidence and can trust in us to be serving your delicious ramen bowls, sushi, and yakitori healthy and with a smile!

Nanaya will be closed until we receive confirmation of negative results. We will keep you all posted as we learn more, and we will see you again soon. Thank you for your support, as always. Keep on, Nanayans!
