Went for a date at the restaurant and everything is just nice as the service is really good. You can feel the Japanese essence just by having your dinner there.

The restaurant is a walking distance to Hotel Eden 54. The ramen prices are moderate but the Sashimi price is quite expensive. I compared the food price with KL, their price is more expensive. A simple chicken rice can cost RM10.

Nishiki is the oldest restaurant in town and unlike many other restaurants which deteriorated in quality after a while, this one still maintains its high standard in food preparation, taste, service and cleanliness. The minute you step foot in the restaurant, you will be greeted...More

Authentic Japanese restaurant in Kota Kinabalu and one of the place that serves Pork Katsu Don in KK. The only thing for not rating full 5 ratings was the slow service but its worth while to wait for the delicious food here.
