This classy oasis of calm is where the well-heeled in Kota Kinabalu go for exquisite Japanese cuisine.
As to be expected of one of the city’s top Japanese restaurants, the menu is wide and varied. The boon is that it offers good value and reasonable prices, to boot.
• The signature Nagisa maki with fried eel, sliced avocado and egg rolled with sushi rice is our top recommendation.
• For belly-warming goodness, order the gindara nabe, a hot pot of fresh cod, assorted vegetables and mushrooms in a clear tasty broth.
• The gindara teriyaki comes with fresh flavourful cod slathered with teriyaki sauce and grilled till just tender. Alternatively, try the unagi teriyaki, which is equally scrumptious.
