The entrance which is sort of hidden below the stairs right before the hotel's coffee house.
|The normal seatings. The ones to the back is near the sushi bar where you can see the chef prepare freshly made sushi for you.|
|Tatami rooms require you to take off your shoes. Good for a little privacy with no extra charges ;)|
|Multiple awards throughout the years.. proves that this restaurant is very underrated!|
|Kani tanuki salad. RM15. Consists of crab meat, tempura crumbs, topped with fish roe. The tempura crumbs make this a crunchy and delightful appetizer!|
|Unagi maki (Eel). RM30. One of the best the restaurant has to offer. The chef wasn't feeling too generous that night so he gave us thin spreads of mayonnaise. Normally it's pretty thick. A+ for taste!|
|Ebi tempura (Prawn). RM30. Mr Foodpacker's mum's favourite when she's on a diet =P|
|Tori katsu (chicken). RM22. Just an okay dish. Comes with sweet sauce to overcome the dryness.|
|Yakitori (chicken skewers). RM11. Just a normal appertizer dish and FYI the lemongrass is not edible.|
|Genkikara tahu. RM25. Huge tauhu(s) inside.|
|Kaisen tofu. RM18. An instant hit with Mr Foodpacker's family. Gone in a few minutes. Better than Genkikara tahu above.|
|Tempura soba. RM29. A beautiful clear soup garden-like delight. Look at all the fresh ingredients in there harmonizing as a whole. Better eat the prawns fast (or put it aside) before it gets soaked and lose its crunchiness.|
|A matcha green tea for everyone. Ended up ordering 2 more and the staff was nice enough to give it FOC! though it came in smaller portions, we would have gladly paid for the bigger ones. XD|
Dishing it out: Given the lack of Japanese restaurants in Negeri Sembilan, this is truly one of the best (if not the best) Japanese restaurant in the state. Every meal is authentically Japanese and they were able to maintain the high quality over the years. They also serve buffet on Sundays from 12pm- 2.30pm. This is the time when it seems the place is full so do make a reservation. Buffet is around
Coming back for more value: YES
Service: GOOD but it is hard to get their attention to add additional orders sometimes, especially if you are sitting in the Tatami room. So just clap your hands if they can't here you. That's the Japanese way.
Category: HALAL/PORK-FREE okay, this is slightly confusing. When we asked the manager whether the restaurant was Halal, she told us that it is and they had acquired the certificate. But when we asked if any types of wine, liquor or sake were used in the meals, they told us that they use it on only 1 dish. Which is the beef teppanyaki. If you'd like further clarification regarding this matter, do give them a call at their number below =)
