|First time I am sharing a Japanese restaurant at Kota Kinabalu which is known as Nagisa Japanese Restaurant. Not a lot of Japanese Restaurant can be seen at Kota Kinabalu like any where else such as Penang and Johor Bahru.|
|Nagisa Japanese Restaurant is located inside the ground floor of Hyatt Regency Kinabalu Hotel.|
|This is the sushi bar where we are sitting because other tables has been booked by a very large group of tourist from Taiwan.|
|Displaying their ingredients like this is really tempting us to try all of them.|
|I will try their sashimi if is fresh enough. Well, you can save your money if it is not good. My lost your gain :)|
|Their chefs are local but I believe they have the skills like the Japanese.|
|Complimentary delicious eggplant for us.|
|Sashimi of the Day @RM65.00++|
Overall: 3/5 - It is fresh! I like the white tuna the best! The choices of their fish are pretty fixed to want the chef want to serve to you.
|Gindara Teriyaki Set @RM75.00++|
Overall: 3/5 - Some people said a good Japanese restaurant must serve good sashimi. Some said good sushi. For me, I would say cod fish. Cod fish is really easy to make because the meat itself is already sweet so that's impossible for a chef to ruin a simple fish. So as for this restaurant, they passed my cod fish test. It is real good. Maybe they just need to tune down a little bit on the saltiness of the gravy so that the salty taste will not overpower the original sweet taste in it.
|Wagyu Bento @RM80.00++|
Overall: 2/5 - They fried the tempura in perfection. Really delicious enough to crave for more. It is just the wagyu beef which is the main food in this bento is really disappointing. It is salty and not really melt in your mouth type of beef. It is a waste for such a high grade of beef but not really well cooked.
|Chawanmushi @RM8.00 - Simple steamed egg can be really delicious too.|
|The set comes with an ice cream. Pretty worthy set.|
|Overall, I guessed there is no other better Japanese Restaurant than this. So it is really recommended to come. The price is fairly around RM50 - RM100 per person.|
