The Black Cod is to die for, glad they still have this on the menu. Food here is excellent if you like Sushi, Sashimi & Teppan style cooking and for those that aren't keen it is not all fish. A little disappointed that they no longer open the upstairs dining area where you had to sit in the traditional cross... More

It was about a 25 minute taxi ride from where we were staying but WOW it was totally worth it. There were a variety of specials and the set menu had plenty to choose from. When the meals were delivered everyone was happy! The salmon sashimi was a standout!!

We went twice. Sat outside at a western table and then outside at a Japanese style table. Both instances were superb as was the quality of the food. I definitely recommend asking for an outside table as the restaurant is quite brightly lit. Had sushi,sashimi, teriyaki squid, noodles, and everything was perfect.

Really good Japanese place, nice and cozy, friendly staff - Malaysians trained to follow traditional Japanese style. Very good and tasty food, medium portions. The same only minus (but not for everybody) is the price tag, which one at least in a location like this would expect lower.

We were recommended this restaurant by people we met at our hotel on the other side of the island, and after reading favourable reviews on this site, decided to give it a try, for dinner after a visit to the nearby Underwater World. If you do the same, take a taxi. We walked and it was a bit too far... More

We visited Unkaizan for dinner. The service was very attentive and helpful. The food was good with a very large selection. I had the Ribeye charcoal steak which was the most tender ribeye I have ever eaten. Had made udon was amazing to try too.

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
