RM118 A La Carte Japanese Buffet @ Tatsu, Intercontinental Hotel Kuala Lumpur

This is my first buffet post in almost 2 years and I am going to make it a quick one. Tatsu at Intercontinental Hotel is the place and the Japanese a la carte buffet costs RM118 for an adult. Crazy eh? I think this is the most expensive buffet I have ever had. Price is the only downside here as most of the food that really mattered such as sashimi, cod, unagi and tempura are good while the rest meet expectations.

Salmon-Sashimi

5 types of sashimi (counts as 5 of the 88 dishes) here: butterfish, octopus, salmon, taro and yellowtail.

Salmon-Sushi

7 types of sushi (2pcs for each portion): butterfish, eel, salmon, ika, octopus, tuna and yellowtail.

Teriyaki-Cod

Teriyaki Cod, delicious and a must order here. Best value too if you intend to eat for your money’s worth.


Teppanyaki-Cod

Teppanyaki Cod, also delicious but we liked the Teriyaki version a lot more.

Tatsu-Restaurant

There are 88 dishes (we sampled 20+ only) to order from and you are limited to ordering a maximum of 5 dishes every time to prevent food waste. I don’t know about you but I am all for this rule. Too many times I have seen people piling up their plates at buffets just to leave them untouched at the end of the session. So, the two ultimate questions: Is the buffet worth forking out RM118 for? Will we return? The answers are “not really” and “highly unlikely”.

    Hi Vkeong! Thanks for sharing! I tried Tatsu on Sunday 4.8.2013. My comments: the sashimi and seafood dishes like cod fish and unagi are great but a bit pricey for RM118++ especially when other food are just mediocre. A return is unlikely haha.

    118++, assume service is 10% and gst is 6% it would be RM137. 2 person will RM274 (omg)…honestly it is not worth lo…Unless the ice cream is Häagen-Dazs then i will consider…

    Is the grilled unagi being limited from the order to like only can order 1 or 2 times? i know max per order are 5 dishes. but we can keep on order and order after the 5 dishes have been finished eating, am i right? does it mean that 1st round 1 finish 1 plate of unagi, i can order another plate of unagi for the 2nd round?

      i tried there tatsu restaurant before, u can order as you can eat, there is no limitation on ordering. RM 118++ is abit costly, however, it still worth as comparing to Kampachi those fine dining restaurant. i am strongly recommended to give a try at Tatsu.
