Among the many mid-tier Japanese joints in KL, Saisai feels the most like home – a casual, unassuming Japanese eatery hidden in plain sight, no frills, no fancy plates. Saisai commands a small space with a sweet, familial atmosphere, but make no mistake, it goes big on taste here. The home-style menu boasts comforting Japanese courses for sharing: Order the braised pork, simmered saba with sweet sauce, and a bowl of oden in light dashi broth. To round up an inexpensive but indulgent Japanese food fix, salads, stews and akashiyaki – round dumplings resembling takoyaki – are also available.
