A pioneer at heart, Chef Nishina effortlessly marries traditional Japanese cuisine with inventive twists, ensuring every dish at Kan Sushi is a homage to Japan’s rich culinary legacy.

in 2014, he brought his talents to Singapore, choosing to serve the most discerning palates and profiles while maintaining a deliberately low profile, further cementing his revered position in the world of gourmet sushi.

"Respect for Tradition, Passion for Innovation"

Chef Kan Nishina's culinary philosophy is anchored in a profound respect for the traditions of Japanese cuisine, fused with an unyielding passion for innovation. Believing that every ingredient has a story and every dish a heritage, he meticulously sources the freshest, highest quality produce, treating each element with reverence. His approach to sushi and omakase is a delicate balance between honoring the age-old techniques passed down through generations and embracing the possibilities of contemporary culinary arts. For Chef Nishina, cooking is not just about feeding the body but nurturing the soul, creating experiences that linger in the memory long after the meal is over. This philosophy drives him to continually push the boundaries, ensuring that every dining experience at Kan Sushi is both a tribute to the past and a taste of the future.
