Kō•än is a casual-fine dining restaurant in Cary that is focused on fun, sharable food that celebrates the unsung heroes of Southeast Asian cuisine. We find inspiration from and pay respect to the cultures of that region, while using local and seasonal ingredients to create something new.

Kō•än’s menu highlights delectable housemade dumplings, savory and comforting curries, a raw bar with a multitude of fresh seafood dishes, and last but not least, a stunning pastry program with edible works of art. All of this comes together with an exquisite wine list, lively craft cocktails, and a uniquely curated sake selection.

Though boasting an elegant atmosphere, Kō•än’s warm and thoughtful service will make any type of experience special.
