Ogawa Japanese Restaurant

Fresh and cosy

What we say: 3.5 stars

Set up like a traditional Japanese izakaya (a humble, inviting Japanese eatery), Ogawa Restaurant is a small and casual but great choice for Japanese fare in Kuala Lumpur.

Along with a range of fresh sushi and sashimi (the salmon was fresh, fresh, fresh at 38 ringgit), Ogawa offers some more interesting selections, such as oden, a traditional street food of fishcake, egg, konnyaku, tofu and vegetables in a light dashi broth.

If wanting to splurge -- or just test your fate -- go for fugu, which is made from the poisonous pufferfish and may only be prepared by specially trained chefs. We have confidence in Ogawa's Japanese fish masters, but the 180 ringgit price tag could be a deterrent. More simple options, like tempura and udon noodles, run in the 30 ringgit neighbourhood. This is a great place to order several dishes and share with friends, and you can enhance the experience with a selection from Ogawa's handsome sake menu.

Ogawa is located in Mont Kiara, a five minutes' walk from trendy Bangsar and about 15 minutes' drive by cab from the city centre.
