Highly rated as the best (and only) proper Japanese Restaurant in Langkawi, service is always good, food fresh and authentic. Price is a little on high side, but worth it.

We had dinner here. We ordered a grill seabass, a seafood soup in claypot, and ebi tempura dinner set. I really love the soup. Suggest to make reservation before visit as there are limited seats. Parking bays are limited as well, you may have to park at the road side and walk up the slope to reach the restaurant. You... More

We came here because the ad in our local map says it's "winner of Malaysia's Best Restaurant since 2005". Given that they only have three Japanese restaurants in Langkawi, we're not surprised that Unkaizan is rated so highly. We tried to book through our hotel concierge earlier in the day but they replied saying a table's only available at 9pm.... More

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 portions were impressive, staff was very attentive and... 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
