Signature Yakisuki must try! A lil pricey but it’s worth every penny of yours. Had classic yakiniku trio platter, first time having beef tongue and it turned out pretty amazing. Rosu beef was the bomb! Waiter and waitress are helpful and friendly.

You may not have intended to start cooking Japanese food, but when you see Taisyu Yakiniku’s outstanding menu and low rates, it might be tough not to. Let’s face it: yakiniku cravings can be expensive indulgences. In other words, their prices are reasonable. Just don’t anticipate the cozy interiors that you’d typically find at yakiniku restaurants. Taisyu Yakiniku, on the other hand, keeps things basic and straightforward with an open-air dining setup.

Key Differentiators:

  • Offers the kind of yakiniku delights at reasonable price
  • First authentic Outdoor Japanese BBQ in Taman Desa
  • Open-air dining concept

Customer’s Review:

Nice outdoor BBQ. fresh service and decent serving size. value for money.

Authentic BBQ has been in Kepong for a few years and is still doing a brisk trade after many restaurants opened and shut in the same area. Their basic two-page menu offers numerous cuts of mostly pork, beef, lamb, chicken, and fish. Sweet sauce, lime, salty black pepper, and chili powder are some of the sauces and condiments available. The goal is to bathe grilled meat in sweet sauce before topping it with a light layer of black pepper and chili powder. For about RM50-RM60, you may have a hearty dinner for two that’s both filling and cheap.

Key Differentiators:

  • Authentic Japanese Style BBQ & Nabe
  • Friendly environment
  • Good Service

Customer’s Review:

Different feeling and environmentally delicious food, reasonable price, won’t be expensive.

Kyomo Japanese Restaurant believes in offering real Japanese charcoal-grilled beef as much as possible, just like the one served in Japan. Their fresh meat options are carefully chosen to ensure that you receive value for your money. Not only do they offer traditional Wagyu cuts like the thick Cut Special Beef Tongue and Premium Wagyu Sirloin Steak, but you can also pick from a variety of other beef types. However, if you’re unsure which one to select, try their signature “Omakase Style” dish.

Key Differentiators:

  • SHIN NIHON ​change brand name and reborn as “Kyomo”.
  • Japanese Wagyu Charcoal Grilled Yakiniku
  • New Signature Dishes Promotion

Customer’s Review:

Excellent meal. Good quality meat but could be a little more generous cut.
