Really good Japanese place, nice and cozy, friendly staff - Malaysians trained to follow traditional Japanese style. Very good and tasty food, medium portions. The same only minus (but not for everybody) is the price tag, which one at least in a location like this would expect lower.

We were recommended this restaurant by people we met at our hotel on the other side of the island, and after reading favourable reviews on this site, decided to give it a try, for dinner after a visit to the nearby Underwater World. If you do the same, take a taxi. We walked and it was a bit too far... More

We visited Unkaizan for dinner. The service was very attentive and helpful. The food was good with a very large selection. I had the Ribeye charcoal steak which was the most tender ribeye I have ever eaten. Had made udon was amazing to try too.

A friend & I were idly browsing through Tripadvisor restaurant recommendations, and were a little skeptical at the rave reviews Unkaizan had received, so decided to try it out for ourselves. We weren't disappointed! For a small restaurant, the menu selection was fairly comprehensive - it definitely covers the usual suspects and provided sufficient variety to keep us wondering what...

We visited it after a trip to cable car. Location was not close to us, but we are Japanese food lovers and were seeking for a authentic Japanese place. Sashimi, sushi, tepanyaki, hand made udon... all was great. Price is not cheap, but it fully corresponds to quality of food. 600myr for a family dinner, fair enough for a feel... More

Very secluded restaurant, if you don't get proper directions, you will have a slightly difficult locating it. Very friendly Chef Take & service crew. Anyway, try the gindara cod, the best grilled fish i ever had in my life. The fried rice, chawanmushi and sushi selection is superb with my favourite is the California Roll and ebi roll. I don't...

Cozy place and friendly staff but the food wasn't served at the same time. The food was ok but not a wow moment.
