Don't be put off by its location in the shopping mall. Wakaba is a lovely little restaurant that offers a great selection of fresh and tasty Japanese dishes. Reasonably priced too.

We ate salmon rolls, udon noodles, two sushi, watermelon juice and green tea and paid about 80RM. And I can't say something good about staff, they was helpfull but without any enthusiasm.

Location is just on the second floor of the mall close to the beach. Prices were reasonable and it was first place in Malaysia that I actually enjoyed my sushi(didn't like it... More

My husband had some set meal with rice, miso soup and prawn tempura; the tempura was just decent. Probably due to my preference, I thought I've had way better and filling tempura elsewhere. The soup was nice. Our favorite dish of the day was the salmon roll; most perfect rolls I've ever eaten. The salmon was fresh! I've had sushi... More

I ordered 2 rolls and a water, the bill was 45 rm. The sushi was average, nothing special. The best part about this place is the staff, very kind and all smiling.

First time having Japanese food at langkawi. It's Expensive and the food is poor. Their food is not worth for this pricing.
