Really delicious range of authentic Japanese fare. Recommend sitting upstairs for view of sunset and better atmosphere though all tables there are low Japanese-style with cushions. If you'd rather sit at a table, choose the ground floor instead.

Very friendly Japanese waitress Akane. We enjoy the food a lot, forget to watch the sunset. Compare with other Japanese restaurant in other city, price is kinda expensive, but value for some of the food, excellent service and atmosphere.

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
