|Daaad! Dad, do we have to go to Kawasaki's?!|
— Tiff, from The Thing About the Ring
Kawasaki's is the restaurant in Cappy Town owned and operated solely by Chef Kawasaki in Kirby: Right Back at Ya!. It is the only dedicated restaurant in town, and serves mainly Japanese cuisine, such as ramen and sushi, though other dishes on offer include wonton soup, curry, salad, rice bowls, cakes, sausages, and the like. Despite the variety on offer, Kawasaki's has a reputation around town for consistently poor food quality, though due to being the only restaurant in town, it still receives a regular supply of customers. Kirby is the only customer who consistently enjoys the food.
Kawasaki's first appears alongside its chef in the episode A Blockbuster Battle, where Kirby is very briefly taken on as a waiter before being sabotaged by King Dedede and Escargoon. In most subsequent episodes, the restaurant serves only as a backdrop location, similar to other important buildings in Cappy Town.
- Kawasaki's is shown to sometimes have a deck attached to the roof of the building, and sometimes not.
