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.

Came to Unkaizen for birthday dinner. Was impressed with the service, food offerings and pricing. Sushi chef and owner really knew what he was doing, and the young local waitress be also knew her stuff. Ambiance was authentic tropical Langkawi a'la Japanese. We ordered live snapper made into Sashimi and Char grill. It was fantastic, the live snapper sashimi was... More

If you are craving some Fresh Japanese you can't go past this restaurant. It was a bit of a drive from our hotel but only 5 minutes away from night markets and shopping. Sashimi was incredibly fresh and the wagyu beef melted in your mouth. Everything on the menu is delicious and the service was excellent. Highly recommend this place... More

I can't say enough about the food here. I'm pescetarian and the seafood was delectable here. We had the miso salmon, a seafood teppanyaki and a tuna sashimi salad, all were amazing. Staff were beautiful. Hard to get in do hook early or be prepared to eat late - they seated is at 9pm and people were still arriving then!... More
