Ukiah Japanese Smokehouse


Created by friends, UKIAH was born out of a true passion for Japanese soul food and southern BBQ (with a good cocktail on the side!)

Located opposite Asheville’s iconic music venue in downtown, the Orange Peel, UKIAH features a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, a large central bar and dog-friendly patio. Our hope is that everyone will find their perfect spot, whether it’s at the bar slurping on some ramen or dinner with friends with a good bottle of wine. Dress code is casual, and the music is a mix of indie, old school, funk and soul.

Oh and the name? It spells “haiku” backwards, reflecting a little bit on our approach to food… structure and balance, turned upside down… (Also – we liked it…) and to welcoming you.
