Located in the really busy nightlife place , the jap food is very ordinary , nothing special. It's overprice.

The restaurant is closed. The place has been board up when we walk pass. Don't seem it is going for refurbishment as there is no notice.

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.
