Miyabi, Sheraton Petaling Jaya Hotel

Miyabi, Sheraton Petaling Jaya Hotel

Warm wooden interiors and earthy tones set the stage for Miyabi’s signature items, which include wagyu tenderloin, seasonal fish air-flown from Japan, and their sushi rolls. Different seating sections provide varied experiences, from watching the chefs work their magic at the sushi bar counter, or marvelling at their skills at the teppanyaki grill.

Kampachi

Kampachi

Kampachi has always been at the forefront of KL’s Japanese dining scene. As a previous winner in this category, Kampachi is known for its excellent omakase meals, premium sashimi and the freshest ingredients flown in from Japan. Dine in classy surrounds at any of their outlets, and check out the Sunday brunch buffet for a fine spread.

Iketeru, Hilton Kuala Lumpur

Iketeru, Hilton Kuala Lumpur

A Zen-inspired rock garden and the sound of waterfalls welcome diners into Iketeru, setting a relaxing mood before the meal. Traditional and contemporary Japanese fare make up the menu, and the assortment of fresh sushi and sashimi made with quality ingredients are highly popular. If unsure, just look to the attentive staff who will gladly recommend menu highlights.

Oribe Sushi

Oribe Sushi

When dining at Oribe, always try to snag a seat at the sushi bar where you’ll get to watch Chef Hideaki Oritsuki at work, masterfully preparing delicate pieces of sushi from some of the freshest seafood from Japan. The menu may look limited, but this is one Japanese fine dining experience worth splurging on.
