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.
Ever since Sushi Mentai opened in Kepong (two branches now) it has become the sushi chain we frequent the most. Despite its basic, no frills and economical concept, Sushi Mentai never failed to provide us with a satisfying meal every time we're here. Although they lose out in terms of dining environment, that's not really a deterrent for many people.
Mitasu Japanese restaurant is serving a la carte buffet, something buffet chasers nowadays look for because it gives an impression that the dishes are prepared upon order. Secondly, the price is affordable @ RM59.90++, not cheap but not too expensive too. And lastly, the restaurant does not impose any time limit so customers are allowed to stay on and eat until they are closed.
Minori's a la carte buffet is only available on weekends for a limited time only (apparently they do this once a year) and it ends on the 29th Nov 2015. For those urgently looking for a good Japanese buffet at a mid-level restaurant that serves fresh food at an affordable price, then look no further than Minori. In fact, this was an extremely rare case where we actually enjoyed a food and beverage deal by Groupon and would actually recommend it to others.
