Checked out this dining place as it was highly rated. It is true you had to wait our your food. Presentation was good. Taste is average for Korean food. But overall good value if dining with family.

I ordered a black pepper fried udon and it came looking like some braised udon instead. My partner ordered a hot pot kimchi served with white rice and it doesn't taste Japanese too. However, portions are just nice and vegetables are fresh.

Food was great, service was good and reasonably priced. Our favorite was the shisamo, wafu hamburger, chicken breast and bibimbap. Be prepared to wait though since there is only a couple manning the restaurant. Worth the wait :)

We almost wait for an hour for our food. We ordered tempura udon, is salty and not nice. Environment is good, cleanliness is good. Just a very long wait and little children wait too long for the food.

We went here because it was recommended by the woman who runs our hostel and it still exceeded expectations. The prices are slightly higher than other restaurants in Tanah Rata but I think that they're justified. My chicken cutlet with vegetable curry (chicken katsu curry)...More

Description
The current listings on trip advisor are very limited and this relatively new establishment provides good food at reasonable prices, and provides a different choice (japanese) for people (esp after travelling for an extensive time in Malaysia)
