Tried the unagi and gindara set, very well prepared and worth the money. Price is a litte high, but that the price for a genuine japanese food, no regret, esp with the staff that really took care of us. The dessert, teppan ice cream was great! yup, teppan ice cream! we ordered with mango, and it just nice!

We ordered a Sea bass sashimi which was so fresh and tasted fantastic. At the same time we were greeted by the fantastic sunset view from the 2nd floor. Overall experience was fantastic. Would recommend everyone that visit to Langkawi to drop by this restaurant. Truly an authentic Japanese restaurant.

It takes some effort to find this restaurant, but the effort is well worthwhile. excellent Japanese food, prepared by a Japanese chef and with a mixture of Japanese and local waiting staff. A lovely relaxed, friendly and peaceful ambience. Highly recommended

If you love Japanese food then this is the place to visit when in Langkawi. Try the chef specials to experience an Osaka Malaysian dinner. Do call ahead to ensure seating is available.

Great place up the hill. Totally different fron the restaurants on the strip. Relaxed place, great staff, lovely food. Relatively expensive but worth every cent. Take care to check facebook page for opening dates.

Must experience. Small place. Friendly staff. Nicely tucked away off the main road on a hill. The sushi, sashimi, the ebi, the tuna, the salmon.............very fresh and well done. Reasonably priced too!
