Best Sushi in Kota Kinabalu

Written by Updated ago

Sushi is a great alternative to our regular diet as it still contains rice. In fact, it might even be better for some as Japanese food is one of the most commonly haved cuisine in Malaysia. We understand the need for raw fish sliced perfectly and laid on a rice pillow, served with some wasabi and dipped in soy sauce - delicious!

    Sakagura Japanese RestaurantPork free d90bfb235d64e73ff14d8ad65b89aaab71a3af43962907cb9cd494af0a63fa21

    You can tell from afar that this has to be a Japanese restaurant, just by the design of the entrance. Inside, you'll find the typical use of timber and warm lighting to set the ambiance, and a fairly large bar at the center of the restaurant, prepping fresh sashimi and assorted sushi. Apart from the freshness of the fish which is fairly obvious, the rice is also done quite nicely. With enough fluff and spacing between each grain, without being too sticky nor too dry, it's a heck of a sushi indeed.

    Tips

    Reservations available.

    Things to expect

    A standard Japanese restaurant.

    Best with

    Green tea.

    Price
