3. Sushi Hinata

Indulge yourself with high quality traditional food at Sushi Hinata.

Mirin and soy sauce used in Japan are sourced from Aichi Prefecture. Hinata use wasabi root grown at the base of Mount Fuji and grind by hand. The taste is completely different from the mango powder wasabi which you sometimes find in the mass market. The menu includes lunch and dinner sets, sashimi and sushi platters, grilled dishes, tempura and sweets. Now to taste what is in season, order the Omakase for the best selection of chefs.

4. Oribe

Take a seat behind the Sushi Bar, where you can see Chef Oribe slowly flying through Japan through fresh fish and cutting them into attractively bite-sized pieces. The elegant atmosphere, with exquisite taste from cuisine, has attracted considerable crowds in Kuala Lumpur. Chef Oribe is not one to sacrifice quality and tradition. No sugar is used for sushi rice, and like many top Japanese restaurants in the area, spicy gin is handmade and wasabi is fresh. The menu in Oribe is quite simple. Five multi-course options including Omakase are provided in the lunch and dinner menus. For drinks, you can choose from Japanese beer, translation and shochu as well as your selection of red wine, white wine and soft drinks.

Address: Vipod Residences, Ground Floor Block C-1, No 6, Jalan Kia Peng, Kuala Lumpur, 50450 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia


5. Saisai Japanese restaurant

It is challenging to prove that Saisai exists; This new secret sanctuary for Japanese soul food — half the shop at Plaza Dumas — has no signboard, no English-language Facebook page, no Foursquare location so far. But Saisai can flourish through an old-fashioned word, as fans of Japanese fare want friendly founder Mika-san and chef Moritsuna Sakuma to propose. Customers can choose exactly the same in their bowl of Odeon - options include hard-boiled egg, daikon, konjac, fish cake, tendon meat and cabbage rolls. A nutritious, warming Japanese winter dish that works well for Malaysian rainy-evening comforts.

Address: F-0-9, Plaza Damas, Jalan Sri Hartamas 1, Sri Hartamas, 50480 Kuala Lumpur

Operation Hours: 5.30pm – 11pm, closed on Sundays
