5 Best Smoking Good Japanese BBQ in KL

5 Best Smoking Good Japanese BBQ Restaurants in KL

Where to get the BEST Japanese BBQ (Yakiniku) in KL?


Japanese Yakiniku, also referred to as "Japanese barbecue”, is best enjoyed in groups. Drawing influence from Korean dishes such as bulgobi and galbi, Yakiniku became widespread in the whole world. If you ever find yourself in Japan, do make sure you try this at least once. But if you don’t, here is a list of best Japanese BBQ hotspots in KL that could satisfy your ever burning crave!


Japanese charcoal-grilled seafood specialist Hamasho is no stranger to its Japanese Community. While the sumibiyaki (charcoal-grilled seafood) concept is not something that’s completely foreign to Malaysians, there aren’t nearly enough restaurants in KL that practise it. At Hamasho, charcoal stoves seize the limelight. Enjoy cooking fish, surf clams, crab legs, scallops and buttered vegetables on portable charcoal grills on the table, while the Japanese waitresses shuffle about in kimonos. Hamasho secures fresh seafood shipments five days a week, no wonder their seafood quality is always top-notch!
