Kikubari, an amalgamation of Japanese words that amount to life force, energy, caring and attention, opened up to rave reviews in 2017 where it took over a cosy nook on the Rooftop of Damansara City Mall. Helmed by Chef Jun Wong, this exciting young restaurant promises a delicate blend of Japanese and European culinary sensibilities with a focus on sustainability.
Step into Kikubari and a calm washes over you as the intimate surroundings melt away the stresses and strains of the day. A low-lit Zen garden sits under a glass floor in the main dining room, which carries enough tables to seat 25. Coveted bar seats are also available if you want front row seats of Chef Jun and her team putting together their plates.
Complementing the fare is a curated selection of over 300 wine and 50 sake labels, hand-picked by two of Malaysia’s most established sommeliers – Yuhei Teraoka and Outlet Manager Danny Tai. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and slightly lost with the vast selection, these two will help you match your tastes and dishes with the best beverage.
