Sakae Sushi



Just came back from Sakae Sushi! And I must say the sushi there is great. All the while Sushi King has been the one and only sushi chain in Penang, hence dominating the market here, so it’s good to have an alternative. Not to mention the restaurant’s cute mascot, a green frog lol.


I believe most people will order green tea whenever they go to Japanese restaurants. This green tea bag is only RM1.00 and can be refilled anytime with the hot water tap installed beside the tables.


I think the nicest thing about sushi restaurant is being able to see the sushi moving around you. The person who invented this method is really creative. Does anyone think this can be applied for dim sum lol?


I have always wanted to try Japanese curry. So I ordered the Curry Katsu-Don, which is actually curry chicken rice. Very nice, and only costs RM13.90.


And some other sushi we took from the belt. The cheapest being the green plates is RM1.90. RM3.90 for the pink ones and RM5.90 for the red ones. There’s no need to mention how they taste like, as all are superb! By the way, shown above is Unagi Maki.


Fresh salmon slices


Tamago (Omelette Sushi) – This is actually one of my fav sushi!


Ebikko (fish roe) – The fish roe do look like they are shining, don’t they?


Salmon Makimono (Salmon Rolls)


Chuka Iidako (Seasoned Baby Octopus)


Sake Mayo Temaki (Tuna Mayo California Rolls) – My first ever California Roll.


And lastly, Soft Shell Crab California Rolls. By the way, if you are interested in the Teppanyaki Set, head over to Siang Leng’s blog for her own review hehe. Also highly recommended.

  3. I have tried sakae sushi in KLCC and it really tastes good, I was surprised to see Japanese food price at such reasonable price. There were many varieties of sushi and I have tried the mayo crabstick, salmon, avocado wraps, belly tuna, etc….The salmon pieces was not stingy ,it came in thick slices and fresh too!. The interactive computer menus was a breeze and easy to arrives pretty quick . I have a serene afternoon and enjoyable meal there. Will certainly come back for more!!! Your pictures are very well taken and lively.

  5. I had a very unpleasant experience today at the Sakae Sushi in Gurney Plaza, Penang.
    Date 23rd April 2009
    Time: 1:30pm – 2:00pm
    Location: Gurney Plaza, Penang, Malaysia

    I decided to have lunch at Sakae restaurant because the shop front looks very modern and the menu is very well designed as well as offering a lot of choice and variety. I was seated at the restaurant at 1:30pm and left at 2:00pm. My order was Hamachi sushi, Unagi rice and tea set (promotional item) and a salmon sushi plus a hot tea once I sat down.

    The salmon sushi came first and it was a good start. Then came the second item, it was the hamachi sushi, my favourite. However, the hamachi looked pretty bad, it didnt look a tad bit fresh at all. The colour has gone greyish and it smelt!!! I promptly returned it but was given a rather nasty look by one of the black suited waiters. Then 10 mins later, my unagi rice and tea set came. The unagi and rice was COLD. Worse of all, the tea tasted SALTY!! At first I thought this is some kind of speciality tea. Then I compared with the tea bag I had earlier on, it was the same!!! So I knew right away that my tea has undergone some sort of “modification”. A prank should I say. It was totally and utterly a very unprofessional act by the staff and I promptly pointed it out to the manager on duty. I paid the bill and left the restaurant immediately. Worried if there will be another prank thrown at me.

    Absolutely an unacceptable service and act from a restaurant in Penang. I hope this will draw their attention to the issue. Regret to send this feedback here. I just hope that it will not happen to any of my friends or families and public in Penang.
    A feedback has also sent to the Management.

  6. OMG, they pee (urinated) in your teapot!! You should sue them. It’s disgusting!!

    vk: Pan, please do not assume anything. You may be sued in return for defamation.
