The Yatai Japanese food stall was designed inspired by Japan’s Bullet Train, Shinkansen, featuring a range of Japanese foods, including baked sweet potatos and rice crackers.

The Japanese cosmetics section, CosmeDonki, offers products exclusive to the retailer, while the Halal section offers Halal-certified products, including Halal Japan A5 Wagyu and Australian Black Angus beef. 

Operated by Pan Pacific Retail Management (PPRM) Malaysia, The Tropicana Garden Mall store is the second Jonetz by Don Don Donki store in the country. PPRM’s president, Satochi Machida, said the company plans to open 11 more Don Don Donki stores by 2024.
