Located in The Island Plaza Mall, this is an unpretentious restaurant decorated in the usual Japanese style, with sober and clean lines and muted tones. The menu is substantial, presented in a file with pictures for those unfamiliar with Japanese dishes. The selection is comprehensive, with a wide variety of sashimi, gyoza, soups, tempura, grilled mackerel and other classics. On... More

I and my family are regulars of Edo Ichi. Ample menu, I recommend the sashimi: always generous portions and always fresh. But all the menu is very good. Very nice and helpful staff. If you are more than two, it's better to book. Highly recommended.

The restaurant looks dark and uninteresting from outside but once inside it is much more attractive and the staff are very welcoming. We had lunch there and were impressed by the good service and the excellent food. My wife had the salmon sashimi & salmon roe salad with sesame dressing and thought it the best salad she could remember ever... More

Edo Ichi, the only reason keeping the dead mall of Island Plaza alive.. Yes, it is that good, so good that I would say none of the Japanese restaurants in Penang can even come close to it's level.. However, since it can be categorized as "premium" Japanase restaurant, the price doesn't come cheap as well.. Some sashimi and a bottle... More

We went to Edo Ichi for dinner based on a random blog post. Although there was a language barrier, the staff were friendly and provided good service. The restaurant was clean and the food came out in a timely manner. Unfortunately we were unable to have the soft shell crab and salmon skin salad as they'd run out of salmon... More

4 of us were here for dinner. Reservations were required. The menus were tattered, and table we were given had broken bench seats. Decor felt very much like the shopping center it was situated in, ie, run down. Service was a so so. The waiter seemed strangely 'lost' about the food, and was deaf to our request for tea refills....

Always love to dine here, food quality was excellent. Fresh & delicious. Service was good even though sometimes arrive late, or 30 mins before the kitchen's last order. Food was abit pricey but worth the $$. Have to be there early if you opt for their Salmon skin salad, it's sold out real quick!

Nice ambience, efficient service, good Japanese food and drinks. Many choices of Bento for lunch or dinner. Creative sushis, fresh sashimi, quality food, friendly and helpful staff. Always enjoy the food here and try many, plus the cold or hot good choices of sake, either quick lunch alone or gathering with friends. Located in Tanjung Tokong and strategic area in... More
