Tucked deep in the grounds of Penang Digital Library, Hanzo Japanese Restaurant has just recently opened its doors to all Japanese fans. It serves casual yet sumptuous authentic Japanese food filled with umami flavours while providing its patrons with the ideal place to carry out their work.
The restaurant is established inside a wondrous glasshouse for patrons to look out while they are dining. Surrounding the glasshouse is the captivating sight of greeneries and plants that will surely put your mind at ease.

Or if you’re more of a sushi person, you can order from their sushi and maki selection. Known for its salmon series, Hanzo procures and uses fresh salmon in its sushi, ensuring the taste of freshness in every bite. Try its salmon sushi that goes perfectly with a dip in soy sauce and wasabi.

Hanzo has also curated the perfect drinks that will go well with your meal. Enjoy the sweet sip of the Purple Taro Latte, a blend of the distinct taste of taro and milk. A must-order for every Taro fan out there! And of course, what is a Japanese restaurant if there’s no matcha? However, instead of the usual combination of matcha and milk, Hanzo introduced Matcha Sakura, the bitter yet aromatic green tea infused with the sweet-smelling sakura fragrance.
