This is my special spot in Langkawi. I cannot express how much I love this place. I strongly suggest anyone who visits here order their unagi kamameshi (Unagi with hot rice in a pot). That's a dish that I couldn't find similar experience in KL. Their sashimi is thicker than usual ones, so it's personal whether you would like it... More

Intro by the staff in ambong ambong says this is a must try restaurant. The food is good, friendly staff, mosquito free for outdoor seats - isn't it amazing?! Please pay a visit if you are there in Langakawi.

Food here is really unique and nice, but can be quite pricey depending on what you order. We had a baby with us but they couldn't accommodate... had to sit in the outdoor dining area and risk getting mosquito bites =(

As the restaurant is a bit secluded, i am very surprised by the number of diner. The balcony sit will allow you to have a good view of the sunset. The japanses is by far one of the most tasty one i had. I am so tempted to eat more even when i was very full. The staff is very... More

I came here because this is my favourite Japanese dining venue... & also my husband's. The taste of their food served during each visit is always consistent. The chef & his kitchen team are always on the dot when it comes to dishing out our orders... never experienced any delay, even when they are busy. I've tried quite a number... More

The sushi (California & Ebi) done by Chef Také came up tops on my family's list of favourites. The chicken teriyaki, grilled beef, green tea noodles, miso & garlic fried rice are prepared to perfection... testaments to the consistency that Unkaizan is renowned for. The chef's lovely restaurant manager, hostess/cashier & service staff are super friendly, professional & knowledgeable, reflecting... More

Tried this restaurant based on the tripadvisor reviews and it was fantastic. Honestly I did not expect this sushi level at Langkawi and we were surprised by how good it was. We tried the nigiri, salmon, tuna, eel, octopus, etc.. and it was very good, the salmon nigiri in particular stood out, salmon was fresh and rice perfectly cooked. we... More

We fancied something different on the island and discovered this little gem. We initially we booked Mizumi at the oriental village but the staff weren't particularly helpful. We wanted to sit in the tatami area but because there were only two of us, we were abruptly refused unless we are willing to sit at the normal table. Back to Unkaizan.... More
