A blend of tradition and modernity


Tono Izakaya takes pride in its authentic dining experience, especially when it comes to Yakitori and Kushiyaki. The secret lies in using binchotan, a high-quality Japanese charcoal. This unique charcoal enhances grilling, infusing the skewered meats with a smoky flavour and imparting perfect char. We had a blast with the rare popping chouchin (immature egg yolk) with chicken, beef, sweet potato, chicken meatball and wagyu beef skewers.

Tono Izakaya is a captivating dining establishment located in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, where you will find traditional Japanese elements blending seamlessly with contemporary design.

The clever use of neon lights catch your eye as you enter, and the decor sets the stage for an unforgettable dining experience, leaving a lasting impression.

The menu offers delectable delights, featuring house specialties such as engawa don (flounder tail fin muscle served with rice) and the mouthwatering sando (Japanese sandwich).

Pair these with cold brews as well as the in-house special salad and desserts, and you’re in for a lovely Japanese feast.Going by the tagline “Eat & Travel Responsibly”. Ben Hor hosts a food and travel blog.
