I wasn't really expecting a lot when my family and I came in. But my husband would like to eat something asian and not spicy. The place is cozy. It was quite full on Sunday evening. Most are families, but there are also young couples, friends dining together. We were given menus promptly. Tables are placed loosely. We had a... More

I would say is a everage standard of Japanese food among all the restaurant in Penang. But location in a hotel and environment is good. Service is good too.

I would given a 4 star but the portion is about half of the usual upscale Japanese restaurant. Especially, the sashimi portion and the price comparing to other Japanese restaurants in the same area. All the foods we ordered were good and fresh.

This Japanese restaurant is located within G hotel along Gurney Drive which is next to Gurney Plaza. Try the wagyu ribeye beef cooked on a hot plate. The California maki is a large portion and comes in 8 pieces.

After reading the TA reviews, we decided to try this restaurant. We went for dinner and had two different set menus. Except service, which was prompt and very nice (restaurant was quite empty at that time), the experience was not memorable at all.

Life is full of opportunities to eat great Japanese food. Every city seems to now boast an excellent example of this cuisine, which brings joy to the eye as well as the palate. This restaurant is well beyond expectations for a hotel-based variety. It has great food at a very reasonable rate.

Typical hotel restaurant ambience with good Japanese food. Good service and can get quite busy over the weekends. Food presentation was good and relatively fresh.
