One of the better dinner places to visit. Not sure if they're Korean or Japanese, tho. Fusion, perhaps. Beef is recommended - great - give them a two thumbs up.

No Seaview, no beach but good food and great service. You will get your own charcoal barbecue to prepare the dishes. The staff will guide you how to do it properly if you need any assistance. The menu has a lot of choices but if you come for the first time it is a good idea to choose a set... More

Nice Japanese BBQ place, good quality of meat, we tried some pork, chicken and beef and all was excellent (we didn't try the Wagyu beef though, but Australian beef was good). The service was fast and efficient. My only negative comment was that they have only a limited choice of beers (Japanese) which of course are not on the cheap... More

Chose this based on reviews and proximity to our accommodation. We were not disappointed! From the beginning the service was excellent, the waiter helping us to choose from the extensive menu. The meat was great quality and good portion sizes and prices. The waiter, who spoke very good English, even recommended how and in what order to cook the food.... More

The restaurant is walking distance from Island Plaza. Similar to Takumi in Subang Jaya, it serves yakiniku in a fusion Japanese and Korean style barbeque. The set is good for group to share. We ordered the non beef set which has chicken, pork, seafood and lamb. On a separate order, we tried the 'black' cattle wagyu beef. It was indeed... More

Wagyu beef for bbq is excellent. I strongly recommend their beef. If u like beef tongue then must try, they sell it with different ways of marinated sauce. Is perfect & well worth for value.

On entering this restaurant one notices the tables have metal pots in the center. Not being familiar with Yakiniku (grilled meat), it was a surprise when two pots of burning charcoal are placed in the pots and an above table fan draws away the smoke. The fun is in grilling the varieties of meat, seafood, and vegetables – including Wagyu... More
