10 restaurants for scrumptious sushi in KL and Selangor

Fresh seafood, seasoned and assembled by skilled chefs into delicate mouthfuls of Japanese delights – this list is dedicated to fans of sushi around the Klang Valley.

1. Oribe, Vipod Residences


Expect luscious cuts of seafood that burst with freshness and flavour. Extra care is taken in even how the ginger and wasabi are sourced and served. A few bites of these and it becomes clear that Oribe Sushi instantly merits a berth in the highest echelons of Japanese restaurants in KL.

Address: Ground Floor. Block C-1, Vipod Residences, 6, Jalan Kia Peng, 50450 Kuala Lumpur

2. Ginza Sushimasa, Le Meridien KL


Ginza Sushimasa’s forte might be its omakase experience, one of the city’s most impressive, with course after course of sushi and other mainly seafood delicacies tackled with the ultimate expertise by chefs Murakami and Tanaka. It’s a major splurge though – each omakase dinner costs about RM800 per person. For cost-saving, two customers could share one dinner and split the bill.

Address: Level 7, Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur, 2, Jalan Stesen Sentral, 50470 Kuala Lumpur

3. Hanare, Jalan Tun Razak


Hanare remains one of the city’s best bets for an above-average Japanese meal. The restaurant has a sushi bar where customers can watch the chefs at work and enjoy a top-flight selection of sparkling raw seafood, or better still, go all out with an omakase meal that showcases seasonal produce rarely seen in KL.

Address: Ground Floor, The Intermark Hall, 348 Jalan Tun Razak, 50400 Kuala Lumpur

4. Sushi Hinata


Talk about a sushi specialist: Sushi Hinata is situated in a well-hidden corner of St Mary Residences’ retail level, offering a menu that’s probably 80 percent sushi, with no obvious sight of soupy noodles, teppanyaki or tempura. Hinata’s sushi selection is presented in thematic sets. The top bet: Tuna.

Address:  A-0-1, St Mary Residences, Jalan Tengah, Off Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur

5. Nobu, Persiaran KLCC

1. Nobu

This branch of the world-famous Japanese restaurant chain, which has outlets on five continents, was opened as the first in Southeast Asia last year. It draws diners from near and far to sample fresh, innovative Japanese cuisine in one of the city’s most scenic perches.

Address: Level 56, Menara 3 Petronas, Persiaran Kuala Lumpur City Centre, 50088 Kuala Lumpur

6. Hana Dining + Sake Bar, Bandar Sunway


This Malaysian spin-off of Taipei’s respected A-Plus Japanese eatery offers a surprisingly imaginative selection that’s satisfyingly executed and fun to experience. Hana serves intriguingly unique creations, immaculately crafted; our favourites include the creamy sea urchin sushi on a crispy bed of lightly battered shiso leaves and spicy tuna sushi on whitebait, which both supply memorable contrasts of flavours and textures. Strong points for presentation and solid marks for freshness as well.

Address: OB2.G.U1, Oasis Boulevard, Ground Floor, Sunway Pyramid (Opposite Kim Gary), Selangor

7. Kame Sushi, Desa Sri Hartamas

The sashimi here is the equal of Ten’s at Solaris Dutamas. Come on Tuesdays and Fridays, when everything’s flown in. With no menu, the man behind the counter decides what to serve – hope for Hokkaido crabs, filled with savoury, ecstasy-inducing roe and sweet, easy-to-eat flesh.

Address: 20, Jalan 31/70a, , Desa Sri Hartamas, 50480 WP Kuala Lumpur

8. Chiyo Sushi, Bandar Sunway


Chiyo Sushi is a friendly hideout in Bandar Sunway’s 8 Gourmets Gala that thrives on the art of omakase – leave the meal completely in the hands of a small team of Malaysian chefs who have more than a decade of experience at various Japanese restaurants. It’s likely to be nearly two hours well spent, kicking off with starters that showcase a respectable collection of delicate Japanese flavours to whet the appetite for more.

Address: EGG – Eight Gourmets Gala, Ground Floor, The Pinnacle Annexe, Persiaran Lagoon, Bandar Sunway

9. Kinme Sashimi & Grill Bar, Bukit Damansara


This sparkling specialist in raw seafood and grilled meat recently debuted at a relatively inconspicuous section of Plaza Damansara, but strong word-of-mouth should swiftly seduce swarms of sashimi-worshipers. Patrons might receive the luscious likes of tuna belly anointed with fermented mushroom puree, or perhaps a king’s ransom of scallops crowned with sea urchin from the veer-evolving menu.

Address: 26 Jalan Medan Setia 2, Bukit Damansara, 50490 Damansara Heights

10. TEN, Marc Residence


Sushi and teppanyaki counters showcase its kitchen’s wide-ranging skills, and Ten’s omakase set might be the ideal illustration of this restaurant’s fortes.

Address: A-G-1, The Marc Residence – Ground Floor, 3 Jalan Pinang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur
