Iki Omakase is a new Japanese restaurant opened since April 2021 that serves omakase. Chef Kayden and his team serve premium and authentic Japanese cuisine by using only the finest
ingredients from Japan. The philosophy behind Iki Omakase is to bring quality
Japanese sushi dining experience to the masses. With so much sincerity given by
Iki Omakase, your dining experience will be heightened with enjoyment of the
Japanese dedication. They will surely treat you the art of enjoying sushi. I had the Sushi Lunch Omakase (RM288++/pax) that comes with salad, appetizer, 12 piece nigiri, 1 temaki, miso soup and dessert. Check out their Menu here!

I kinda like the interior of this place whereby they set up a dimmer lighting, which is romantic for couples. Strongly recommend you to book this place early for dates if you want to enjoy a romantic ambience with delicious food and superb service. Overall, the fishes and seafood are super fresh.
