If you need a reason to hate Japanese food, just come to Saisaki for their Japanese buffet. They are right in calling themselves the Grand Father of Japanese Buffets because that's what they are: old, living on past glory and in need of serious revamps.
I rarely go back to the same restaurant twice because I have always believed in trying out new places. But after a string of Japanese food mishaps recently, I thought it might be a good idea to stick to trusty Yuzen for the time being. And I am glad to say that they didn't disappoint at all in my last couple of visits.
Latest Recipe is probably the most popular international buffet restaurant in KL because they are quite aggressive in their marketing. Not only they are listed in the Entertainer, they also run Groupon deals quite often. So if you are paying full price to eat here, you're missing out on substantial savings. The normal price is RM138/pax but if you purchase a Groupon deal it's only RM88/pax.
There's a concentration of Japanese restaurants in Subang Jaya especially opposite SJMC where you could find no less than 5 of them lined up side by side.
After contemplating which restaurant we should eat at, Jyu Raku was chosen because we have been hearing good things about them. Not to mention the fact that acclaimed chef Hideaki Nakajima from Minori joined the culinary team not too long ago.
If you told that me there's a good Japanese restaurant in a condominium somewhere in KL, I would probably laugh it off. But then here we are.
Kobayashi has been around more than 4 years in Mont Kiara Palma, an old yet well maintained condominium that features a lake, a large garden and filled with trees that give a sense of tranquility.
Ichiban the Izakaya recently launched their Japanese a la carte buffet @ RM69 nett. It's only available at their Kota Damansara branch at Cascades from 6.30pm to 9.30pm daily.
One thing that makes this buffet stand out from the rest is that Ichiban the Izakaya is originally a full fledged Japanese restaurant, as opposed to one that's started with the sole intention of serving buffet.
