Description: Might be a little too much for the Japanese purist, but this chic joint is definitely for the free-spirited who want to experience experimental Japanese cuisine and drinks at it's best. Already making a name for itself in the past 5 years, Daikanyama stands out from the rest of Changkat Bukit Bintang.Daikanyama does not shy away from food evolution: ask for their special fusion menus and sample their unique cocktails and extensive liquor selection. Set amidst an unfinished interior with modern design pieces, the team at Daikanyama are practitioners of traditional Japanese cuisine methods.Employing a fine understanding of mixing and matching international flavours and making it wholly their own, they honour the palettes of the well-traveled clientele that have made Daikanyama their watering hole.

Had dinner at Daikanyama with friends who recommended it to us. It is located at 42 Changkat Bukit Bintang - look out for the green bamboo hedge as it is easy to miss. Menu is really interesting with delicious mixes of ingredients. For example, we ordered a salad which came with a soft boiled egg & crispy noodles - was so tasty. Chicken teriyaki with nachos - sounds unusual but was very delicious. Also had sushi and probably may favourite dish was the salmon fried rice. This is a must try restaurant. Probably worth noting that they also offer some Vietnamese dishes so you can definitely have a taste sensation dinner. They also have a fairly extensive list of cocktails and can recommend the Pink Geisha - yummy! Staff were very friendly and customer focused. They have tables inside and out. Can't wait to go back.

Feel hungry? Avoid this place! The portions are tiny, and it takes the eternity before the waiter brings it to you. Very disappointing

I do not know why the rating and review was so good about this restaurant.. I will never went there again. They claim to had free gift if book earlier.. But that was just an empty word

Ordered a food.. Wait for 1 hour! To make it more worse.. The food was not nice at all

There staff also not helpful

Their aim is profit rather then customer satisfaction

Dear Traveler007james

Our team at Daikanyama would like to extend our sincerest apologies for the unsatisfying experience you had dining with us. Our team was a bit overwhelmed at dinner service on Valentines Day by both the surge of crowd that came in as well as accidents that happened to a few of our colleagues that caused us to be understaffed.

Our team will be contacting you personally soon.
