Welcome to Nakas Kitchen

Formally Shakas

Original owner

Dear Shaka's Patrons,

We are changing names!

We will be retiring Shakas on Sunday, December 22, 2019

We owe you an explanation of what has happened in the last 12 months.

There was a legal issue between ownership.  The judge advised that we change names in order to move forward.


As of August 30, 2019, the old management was ordered to leave the business by the Judge.  Our hands have been tied due to court dates.  We have been stuck with using their POS system. They turned off the Gift Card program.  If you have a Gift Card, please come in or call in with your name and phone number and the new management will call you.


New California labor laws are making it challenging times for business owners in the Food & Beverage industry.   The cost of doing business has and will continue to increase for the next few years.  We are moving with the times.


On December 27, 2019 we will be changing names from Shakas to Nakas.
