We went to KouGen by chance and were immediately convinced by the calm and pleasant atmosphere of this restaurant. To us, it felt like a haven amidst a lot of very touristy places. The staff is extremely friendly, especially the owner of the restaurant, who is very considerate and polite.
Everything we ate there was very well prepared, cooked and seasoned. We especially loved the salmon in lemon sauce, the sushi and the starter selection. The place is vegetarian/vegan friendly, our friends had no problems finding something to eat on the menu.
We liked this place so much that we came back the next evening and would definitely recommend it.

Two of us went for dinner and we're surprised it was quieter than other places. The food was delicious with lots of variety and the staff were so kind and helpful. Definitely one of the best meals we've had in Malaysia and affordable as well.

Exceptional food. Gyoza and bipimpap absolutely beautiful. Partner ate spring rolls and pork Kim chi. Was described as spicy but he said it wasn't. Simple restaurant but highly recommended. Best food in Tanah Rata. Child friendly and several there when we ate. Staff great and attentive

It is fine but I would have expected better food according to the reviews I read. The Goro Goro was not very tasty but the Udon was good.
It is also a bit pricey.
