Not fresh,not worth, Countculative

Sushi and salmon not so fresh. Insists to charge for the small plate of wasabi although we already rejected when the waitress served it with the sashimi. Need to wait for almost 30mins for a bowl of white rice cause there is no ready cooked rice to be served in this restaurant. One time visit.

One of the specials yesterday was swordfish which you could have either Tempura, Sushi or Sashimi. We had it as Sashimi and it was so fresh and tender it melted in your mouth. We also had California Roll, Deep fried Prawn Sushi and Soft shell crab Tempura. Also some fresh Udon Noodles. We also enjoyed an excellent Sake. Also the... More

The first meal was arranged as part of the yoga retreat and it is vegetarian - the stewed rice is just too yumm.. Understood later that it is not on the menu but was... More

Japanese chef and you can feel the warmth of the everyone in the restaurant. The Ottoro was simply succulently tasteful not to mention even their hand made fruity ice cream. This restaurant alone made my stay in Langkawi... More

Our second visit to Langkawi and we finally located Unkaizen. Having heard much about it from our base at the Andaman, where the chef and owner originally worked at their Japanese restaurant, we had very high expectations. The place itself is just so so, decor could do with an update but the staff were very friendly perhaps even a little... More

Truly the best Japanese restaurant we have ever eaten at in Malaysia and we are huge fans of Japanese food. The seafood was super fresh, the cooking style very traditional and it brought out the sweetness of the fish and prawns. We loved everything that was recommended by the very friendly, warm and helpful staff. We loved it so much,... More

Don't ever eat at this place!!! Food of bad quality which had nothing to do with Japanese food or any good food in general. We even had to pay for the disgusting food!!!! Go somewhere else.
