We stayed in Ambong Ambong and therefore could not avoid visiting this restaurant which is located next to the hotel and highly rated. After reading all the reviews and ratings we expected a bit more, probably more decor in the interior which was rather simple. However, the food was good and the... read more

We came here on the back of recommendations from staff at nearby Ambong Ambong and were not disappointed. It's not the cheapest but worth every penny. We had a sushi starter to share then a bento each (eel and chicken). Everything was very good and staff smiley and welcoming.

Over the years, the ambience has gotten warmer and the food ever so good. Specials--from time-to-time--spice up available options but we always enjoy sashimi, California maki, nabeyaki udon, salmon kamameshi and green tea ice cream. Ever since we dined here, we have generally stopped eating at Japanese restaurants anywhere else.

We visited this Japanese Restuarant after we had a spa in Chaneng and was quite late in the evening. However, the food was amazing, staff very nice and it was in a good little setting. I would recommend you get a taxi to the restaurant as it is a bit out of the way at the end of the "Strip"... More

The tastiest Japanese food I ever had. Head Chef is the owner of this restaurant. It holds yearly awards as the best Japanese restaurant in Malaysia starting from 2005. Prices are much lower than I was expecting and I loved the environment and quality of food. Visited twice in two weeks. Highly recommend to visit.

We've order seabass (half grilled and half sashimi), a sake (recommended by Akane), blue fin tuna sushi, moriawase uni (?) and a... More

Theres hits and misses. Hits are excellent service, really really fresh n delicious sashimi. Orders the ribeye steak set, value for money. Disappointing is the lobster tepanyaki which was on the special menu of the day. It taste a bit mushy and was not as fresh as I had expected.

Decided to try Japanese food in langkawi. Searched through trip advisor and decided to give it a shot after reading so many excellent review. After our delicious dinner with warm service given by the staff, it would be unjust to the restaurant if I didn't provide my review. The food taste was authentic and delicious. I had the sea bass...

Solid Japanese fare. Good prices. Friendly service. May be the best Japanese in Langkawi. The sashimi is good but the best are the grilled dishes. Salmon grill is recommended. There's even red bean ice cream.

The food served was very nice and fresh especially the sashimi and the BBQ salmon .... 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 homemade maccha ice cream is a... More
