Besides of food, the staff was very friendly and some of them came from Japan too, they are really friendly and I could feel very comfortable and enjoy when dining in. The price is reasonable and valuable. The... read more

I must say that the food at Unkaizan was definitely of above average quality. Service is impeccable too. Do try the teppan lobster. The best I had ever eaten. A bit pricey, but worth it!

We didn't make a reservation, so I would consider us very lucky to secure the last table for the night yesterday. The service was excellent throughout and we were really pampered. We sat outside and had a beautiful sunset view! Insect repellant was provided and for good reason. But the food more than made up for it. We had grilled... More

Tried their catch of the day called "kisu" fish, really love the freshness of the fish and crisp tender fresh fish. would recommend this restaurant. it's not like any normal japanese chain restaurant like Sushi Tei or Sakae sushi, it's fine japanese quisine. although a bit pricey.

First came across Chef Takae in 1997 at the Andaman hotel and have followed him to his own restaurant at Unkaizan. Just had a quiet evening over a grilled Salmon head simple set meal. The meal, like always is prepared with simplicity and full of soul. The restaurant is very Japanese in every sense with a distant flavor of an... More

Loved the food here so much that I'll probably come back for more. Had the grilled Salmon with the steamed rice and Salmon belly sashimi. It was heavenly. The salmon belly is so fresh. Also try homemade macha ice cream. Price is on the upside. But the food was worth it. Definitely will come back whenever I'm in town.

The chef and many of the staff are actually Japanese. The quality is very high and the food is delicious. We paid a reasonable amount MYR240 for two people, including drinks and dessert. The seafood was quite fresh. We would love to go back again during our next Langkawi trip.

As far as Japanese restaurants go, this one is quite decent. I love the food - had Salmon Shioyaki and Salmon Sashimi. Simply marvellous! And don't forget their homemade matcha ice cream. Yums! The waitress, Kanako, is very attentive and helpful. Appreciate her effort to explain and recommend dishes to us. The place is quite small, so if possible, make... More
