Yakiniku Japanese BBQ heavily influences Korean dishes but has evolved into a Japanese favourite because of its tender Wagyu options and simple cooking methods. The popularity of yakiniku (meaning “grilled meat” in Japanese) began during a tense period in history.

    "One of the PERFECT Japanese Yakinuku you can find in Malaysia! Tender Japanese Wagyu and juicy Iberico Pork sizzling on the charcoal fire - paired with sake and beer. Kudos to KNK for bringing the best Yakiniku to us. Great service and attentive staffs as well!"

    "Every time when we have gathering with our friends, this will be our number 1 place to go to as they serve the best cut of different type of meat pairing with their amazing sake selections. What I love about the KNK SRI Hartamas is that they have plenty of dining tatami tables which gives the authenticity to it too."

    "Visible from the main road of Tanjung Tokong, the Yakiniku restaurant --Kannikchikan (KNK)-- is humbly tucked in an old commercial complex on the first floor. Inside, an ambience of Japanese finesse awaits. Penangites will be surprised to learn how much the Japanese BBQ eatery has transformed over the years."
