The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon for Kohana Japanese Restaurant. Choose between one of the following dining options:
- For $20, you get $40 worth of Japanese cuisine and sushi at Kohana's Hendersonville location.
- For $15, you get $30 worth of Japanese cuisine and sushi at Kohana's Clarksville location.
Among clean white lines, the soft glow of hanging lamps, and sumptuous contemporary décor, Kohana Japanese Restaurant serves an extensive menu of innovative takes on traditional tastes. Rouse drowsing taste buds with a starter of gyoza, pork and vegetable dumplings (Clarksville $5.25, Hendersonville $7), then make them turn cartwheels with tonkatsu, panko-encrusted pork tenderloin in a sweet and tangy sauce ($11.99/$15). Expert sushi chefs save shivering sea-dwellers from the frost of flat flavor with a bundling of warm rice and seaweed in distinctively devised selections. Crawfish, tempura shrimp, and avocado unite as one craveable concoction in the Kohana roll ($10/$14), and a young rib-eye steak defies its parents by joining a rule-bucking band of asparagus and chives in the unorthodox cowboy roll ($10/$14). Each exotic eatery also offers an array of beer, wine, and sake to moisten mouths for mealtime conversation or dessert-time whistle-offs.
Kohana Japanese Restaurant
Sleek light fixtures dangle from Kohana Japanese Restaurant's ceiling and subtly illuminate a tidily minimal fleet of indigo and white chairs, booths abutting wavy-lined wall paneling, and plates featuring eats carefully crafted and presented by the chefs. Sharply dressed in the only two colors that can be worn together, black and white, servers march out with precisely sliced sections of signature dishes such as the Phoenix specialty roll, which combines spicy tuna, snow crab, and avocado with a multifaceted dressing. Non-sushi selections, such as crunchy shrimp tempura and baked salmon with eel sauce, also pair well with Kohana's selection of wine, beer, and sake.
