I have been to this place many times over a decade, but things have changed badly of late. Not for the best however. In a Japanese restaurant there is a must for the head Chef to be Japanese and if so, it wasn't obvious at all. Every aspect from food preparation, quality of ingredients, service discipline & making your meal... More

Favorite Japanese restaurant in town. Supreme sashimi is well worth the price. It melts in your mouth. Grilled mackerel was cooked just right and was off the bone.

This restaurant is beautiful and has a perfect setting for dining at its highest quality. The sushi is fresh and the teppanyaki dishes are just wonderful. I loved the garlic rice and the succulent prawns and the Wagyu beef and cod fish were awesome. It is also a good restaurant to hold business meetings.

The set lunches are good value, as much as they can be in a hotel. I had the cold soba set, which came with sushi, tempura and salad, and soup for RM79. There are more expensive options, dependent on the meat and fish choices. I came for dinner too, which is a bit more, but has good choices and good... More

Maybe I put my expectation higher. The food was just ordinary. We didn't pick buffet, we choice their lunch set. My wife pick their Wagyu beef set and I take their Cod fish as it show was their best recommendation in the menu. I feel the fish is a bit too salty. The food is a bit over price but... More

Ate here at the end of a long day travelling and being up around 30 hours...despite that we thoroughly enjoyed our meal with a selection of wonderfully fresh sushi dishes plus a number of other dishes...all really good. Despite being so tired and it was the start of our trip it was one of the highlights of our holiday

It was dinner time and the restaurant was dimly lit. Ordered teppanyaki chicken, tempura soba and a glass of cold soba. The soba was nice with its soup just a little saltish. The teppanyaki chicken was accompanied with green veggies in sesame salad sauce, liked it. I selected cold sake that is sweet and dry. The music played in the... More

I was here with my sister to celebrate her birthday. The sashimi is very fresh and the noodles is very tasty with generous portion (we didn't manage to finish and ended take-away). The server, Mr Ezra is very attentive and regularly checking in to ensure we are comfortable. The manager, Kamoshida-san is very highly customer focus, he attend to our... More

The menu seemed expensive compared to other local eating places. However, the quality of the food was so good that it was worth the extra money. This is the best Japanese food we have all had. The sushi was particularly good. Staff were friendly and advised us with the order for portion sizes.

Thank Karen F
