We went their after reading lots of positive comments of this restaurant. We glad we did as it exceeded my expectation and we had a great dinner at there.

Our table was on the first floor which is a Japanese Style dining area with a scenic sunset view. The food was excellent, the sushi was fresh, the staff were very friendly and helpful, services were great, atmosphere is superb...and etc. Although it is kinda pricey, but it was worthy in our point of view.

It was my most favourite restaurant in Langkawi during my visit last month.
The location was somehow partially isolated and the building itself was very Japanese.
We were welcome upon arrival by the friendly staff and they were helpful in explaining the signature dishes. Our seats were at second level, indoor.
We ordered blue fin toro sashimi, salmon sake saikyo yaki and three sets of sushi yama, with mango sorbet as dessert. Although the prices weren't cheap, I like the toro and salmon the most.
Some drawbacks were the toilet wasn't matching with the restaurant at all and there was a lot of mosquitoes outside the restaurant. So I reckon outdoor sittings wouldn't be recommended.
I will certainly return to this restaurant during my next visit. =)

We went to Unkaizan on recommendations from other guests at our hotel. And we were not disappointed... the food was really amazing!! Fresh sashimi and sushi and amazing teriyaki and grilled salmon. We really enjoyed it and would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys Japanese food.

If you enjoy Japanese food, eat here! Great menu, with a big specials board focused on the freshest produce, and the waitress explained that in some cases only small quantities of each were available. Three cuts of tuna were offered, and you could choose to have it served as either sashimi or sushi.

We ate toro (tuna) sushi, battera (pressed mackerel) sushi, salmon sashimi, agedashi tofu and salmon fillet coated in miso and barbecued, which came served at the table sitting in an earthen dish over hot coals. Everything was brilliantly fresh and delicious.

Plenty of staff, all smiling and helpful, and our friendly waitress (an older lady) was a real gem. All round great meal.
