LOS GATOS, Calif., Nov. 28 (UPI) -- A high-end Japanese restaurant in California is offering a $1,200 dish containing fine caviar and topped with 24-karat gold leaves.

Katsu, a restaurant in the northern California town of Los Gatos, has introduced the Decadence Staircase, a dish consisting of a bamboo staircase topped with Russian Sevruga, Osetra, Golden Osetra caviar and premium Beluga caviar, ABC News reported Wednesday.

The dish, which also includes spiny lobster sashimi and Japanese Wagyu shabu shabu, is topped with 24-karat gold leaves.

"Pricing is based on market supply and scarcity of products that are difficult and costly to import," Derek Schuette, the restaurant's general manager, said of the dish's high price tag.
