5. Toyyiban Sushi

 Named after the verse in the Qur’an where Muslims are commanded to eat good, pure food - Halal Toyyiban - you can rest assured that Toyyiban Sushi has got your back. Founded by a Muslim family, the owner spent a few years in Japan before returning to Malaysia to open their own Japanese restaurant - giving classic Japanese cuisine a Malaysian twist to suit the local palate. Although it doesn’t have a very extensive range of sushi or sashimi, Toyyiban makes up for it with the quality of the dishes they do have! One of the most recommended sushi dishes is their crispy fried sushi coupled with spicy soy sauce and wasabi. Halal status: Muslim-owned Opening hours: 11am-7pm daily Address: Bangi Gateway, Seksyen 15, 43650 Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor Facebook | Instagram
