Trust Your Chef's Expertise And Dine Omakase-Style At These 10 Japanese Restaurants In KL

Would you trust your chef to serve you your meal? That’s exactly what omakase is all about. It’s basically ordering from a separate section of the menu where you won’t know exactly what you’re getting until the dish is served at your table.

Omakase is a Japanese phrase which means “I’ll leave it to you” and you’re basically trusting the chef to surprise you with his or her best creations. It’s nice to have a surprise meal once in a while and here are 10 restaurants in KL offering omakase-style meals.

1. Hanare Japanese Restaurant
