This restaurant alone made my stay in Langkawi... More

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.
