We were extremely relived to find that Unkaizan has survived the Pandemic and remains open. They have always been one of our go to restaurants when visiting Langkawi. The service was as good as ever and the food was fantastic. I opted for the Yellowtail...sashimi special and my husband had the black cod. Please give them a try, you will not be disappointed.More

Authentic Japanese cuisine. I had the cold soba noodles, dipping sauce and tempura grilled snapper followed by macha ice-cream. My wife had the bento box followed by redbean ice-cream. Fabulous food the high point was the smoked ell in the bento box.

The Japanese chef and his team serves delicious food - the sashimi included fish from the local waters, the atmosphere is casual and warm. Totally would return there on my next Langkawi trip.

Honestly, I don't understand how somebody can leave a review saying this place is terrible or not good. This is for me the best restaurant in the island and probably among the top in Malaysia. Service is just great, food is amazing, everything tastes fresh...and, when cooked, is just done perfectly. Price is reasonable, when you consider to eat fresh fish, sashimi or premium beef, it cannot be cheap, quality cost money. I have been here 4 times during my staying, trying to taste as many dishes as I could and, I will come back again, once visiting the island. I strongly recommend the place, for couples, friends, to celebrate something or just to enjoy top Japanese food. It is advisable to book, a good restaurant has always lots of customers.More

Hmmm. To be honest below average. Doesn’t tastes good and it pricey. Not worth it all. Not recommended to dine here. I’m very disappointed.

We were stuck in Langkawi for three months during lockdown, Unkaizan was close to where we were staying and they did some great take-aways! We became regulars - at least twice a week! We really enjoyed their food immensely and the prices were good too....When some relaxation to the lockdown came, we ate at the restaurant itself and that was wonderful too. Great food and lovely staff to look after you! We miss Nita!More

Again another of our favourite place for foods. It never let us down. Especially the grilled salmon and california rolls spicy with own grown black chillies. Love it here will always come back.

I love this restaurant. It's one of my favourites on the island. It is a very small restaurant so you should really call and make a reservation. The food is fresh and fantastic. The staff are extremely helpful and the service was excellent. I've been...a few times now and every time it's magical.More

We went there for dinner after a week of exploring street markets and going to Cenang and Telaga Harbour Marina in search of local food (no local food in Telaga Harbour Marina whatsoever btw), and we wish we had done it earlier. The quality of...the food is amazing, they serve the sushi quite warm (THANK YOU! Sushi is not served fridge-cold!!) and everything was more than delicious. We totally recommend if you’d like to escape from the everyday local market food. Also, the staff were the friendliest!!More
