Kadota is a warm and inviting restaurant located in picturesque Daylesford, where lovingly crafted Japanese flavours are carefully produced using seasonal local artisan ingredients.

Omotenashi, meaning honest service and honest food, is at the heart of everything they do.

Kadota is the passion project of owners Aaron Schembri and Risa Kadota who met while working at some of Japan’s finest restaurants. They have brought their passion for captivating food, drinks and hospitality from Risa’s hometown of Okayama to Aaron’s hometown of Daylesford.
