“Spanning 42,243 sq ft across two levels, this unique store offers a wide variety of quality Japanese products, yatai Japanese street food stalls, the CosmeDONKI cosmetic corner and a halal section,” said Tropicana Corp Bhd group managing director Dion Tan.

We hope our customers enjoy our Japanese speciality — from snacks and groceries, a variety of halal-certified Wagyu beef platters to ready-to-eat meals, traditional sweets and more,” said Satoshi. 

Meanwhile, Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC) has also opened its 12-screen cinema at the mall. There are 1,717 seats with six special halls.
