4 MIN READTop 6 Sushi Restaurants In Kuala Lumpur

Updated 7th May 2018

All the way from Japan comes the delicacy that has everyone’s mouth watering, the delectable sushi. It may just be raw fish and cooked rice wrapped in seaweed, yet it still tastes like a little piece of heaven on earth when it is done right. Over the years, many restaurants have started selling this delicacy to the locals here in Malaysia; however, only a handful of them were able to do the dish justice. In this article we will be talking about that handful; here are the Top 6 sushi restaurants you’ll find in Kuala Lumpur.


1. Oribe Sushi

Oribe Sushi’s Chef Oritsuki left his job to fulfil his dream of having his own restaurant. His aim is to take traditional Japanese food to the next level. Most customers who come here become regulars once they have a taste of the Chef’s sushi, which he prepares with his precision and dedicated skill. Judging by the looks of satisfaction on the customers faces when they are eating the food, it is safe to say that Oribe Sushi has won the hearts of those who come here.
Most of their meals come in sets, so it’s best to come in a group. We had their Seto lunch set and let’s just say we are definitely coming back here again.


2. Sushi Hinata

Freshness is the name of the game with Sushi Hinata, with their produce being flown in directly from Tsukiji Fish Market and Fukuoka Market. Although they have a limited menu, it is a testament to how hard chef Hideaki Oritsuki, a renowned sushi master with experience from Nagoya, works to make the sushi rolls as tasty as they are. Their menu items mostly consist of assorted items so we took the Hoshi. Very rarely does something look as good as it tastes, but by golly, did they get it right.


3. Ichiro Sushi Bar

You’ll find this quiet little sushi place tucked away in a corner in 1 Utama Shopping Centre. This hidden gem serves up one of the best Maki Rolls you can find. Four Japanese chefs prepare the food with precision and skill that is a pleasure to watch and guarantees food with a great taste. With super fresh ingredients, some of which are flown in all the way from the world-famous Tsukiji Fish Market in Tokyo, you know you won’t go wrong when you eat in Ichiro Sushi Bar. Our favourite by far was the dragon maki roll. Filled with unagi slices, alongside tamago, avocado and some cream cheese, each bite will leave you speechless and wanting more.

4. Fukuya

Fukuya means “House of Happiness” in Japanese, and we have to say we were truly happy when we found this place. It has semi-private dining areas that look out onto the gardens, so that this fine dining restaurant feels like an old Japanese home. When the sushi is served, you can really see the chef’s skill. Each roll is immaculately cut and the entire platter is very nicely composed. We recommend the lunchtime Seiro, it is the best dish that reflects Fukuya’s personality and what they have to offer. And all in glorious five star ambience.

5 Sou Omakase Dining

Specializing in the art of omakase, which means “I’ll leave it to you”, patrons must leave it entirely to the chef and his team to prepare their lunch and dinners. Like other omakase, the selection will change depending on what’s fresh & seasonal. The dishes also have certain twists to make them unique when compared to the same dish anywhere else. So leave it to your chef and you will get a meal to remember! It is lip-smacking, finger-licking succulence all the way.

6. Taka by Sushi Saito

The Sushi Saito in Tokyo has three Michelin stars, and while many of us may not be able to go there any time soon, we can still get a taste of what they do at Taka by Sushi Saito, Chef Taskashi Saito’s maiden venture from Tokyo. With first-rate seafood flown in all the way from Japan, three times a week, you are guaranteed a delectable meal that will have your taste buds singing their praises for your choice and your stomach asking for more. While it may be on the pricey side, it is worth every penny. So make a reservation here for your special day!
