Introduced by some friend long time ago, we went there again with some other friends, this time I ordered some beef, which needs be grilled at table. Even the quantity not big, but the beef is really very delicious, or I could say it should be the best one I tried in Malaysia. You may try also, beside some normal... More

Delicious Japanese food. Fast service. Slightly pricey but it's definitely tasty. Best to make booking before going.

This is one of the good Japanese restaurants in Georgetown although the decor is a bit dated and tired. However, it serves pretty good food.

Visit Kirishima while I'm staying in cititel penang, the food was good and fresh, must try the garlic fried rice and wagyu wasabi steak, if you like sashimi try other selection of sashimi.

I do not usually comment on restaurants that we are invited to by friends. One would not want to risk being thought critical and ungrateful. Local friends took us here convinced it was the best Japanese restaurant that they knew. The restaurant is on the ground floor of Cititel a little towards the back. We were in a party of... More

First time, I went there with my friends last weekend. When first walked in, smell something like pest control smell. Order a set meal, sushi, ramen. It cost around RM140 for 3 pax and we share the meal instead of order a person one set.The taste is so so only but it is pricey. Imagine my surprise when I saw... More

Went there few times with my friends. The best place to eat Japanese food, if you're looking for the taste back in Japan, this is the place i recommended. Served with fresh ingredient and friendly service. Try their garlic rice and the teriyaki teppan yakitori set, cold noodle with tempura, salmon sashimi and etc. When never i thinking of japanese...

Wide range of sake and sochu with a similar range for food. One of the very few to serve Sapporo on tap. As for the food, a wide range to suit your budget; but if you're not fussy, the wide range of set menus is a good bet. Definitely above your average Japanese restaurant.

Very nice restaurant. Enjoy a table or, if alone, sit at the sushi bar. Friendly service to advise you. Great food. I recommend going for one of the set meals. There is a splendid array of them, illustrated in the menu. Plenty of choice. Certainly, value for money. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

A delightful meal. The sashimi was generous and beautiful cuts. The sushi presentation, visually impressive. All of the seafood we tried was fresh and delectable. The gyoza perhaps the best the four of us have ever had. Varied seating and discreetly separated rooms for smoking and non smoking. Can't wait to go again.

Thank Elizabeth M
