Since we had recommendations for Korean restaurants, we must be fair enough to list out some Japanese restaurants too!
From sushi to bento and udon, Japanese cuisine also has so many irresistible dishes. Other than those with restaurant chains all over the world, you can also try out these few recommendations:
1. Hiroraki Udon @Kajang
If you’re a udon lover, Hiroraki Udon features their own handmade udon with various types of soup such as kimchi and miso soup.
Other than udon, they also have bento and sides like gyoza, salads, tofu and takoyaki.
Besides that, there are friendly waiters ready to serve you and give suggestions on their bestsellers!

2. Yoshinoya @Sunway Pyramid
Yoshinoya is an authentic Japanese restaurant originally from Japan. They’re known to have the best beef bowl in Japan, so I bet we can’t doubt its taste. You can even add a delicious, soft and smooth poached egg on top of your beef bowl~
Also, they have other yummy Japanese dishes like hot pot noodles and curry rice and many more.
Yoshinoya is mainly self-service, so customers are required to order with their own food trays at the counter.
Note that it can be hard to find seats during peak hours as this Japanese restaurant is popular and crowded at times.

3. Sushi Mentai
For sushi lovers, Sushi Mentai can be your budget choice for cheap sushi. With the minimum price of only 1.80 per plate, you’ll get to enjoy more varieties for a filling meal.
The main motto of this restaurant is to bring Japanese cuisine closer to everyone instead of just the privileged upper-class people, with a more affordable price.
Nonetheless, they still use superior ingredients and condiments for their dishes. They even have their own in-house Mentai sauce!
