discouraging welcome:
1) pity tone of welcome guy saying today was buffet ( that s why we came!)
2) Although empty restaurant, we were told to come back in 30mn
3) insisting we managed to get a table but were told immediately that we had to leave 2 hours and a half later!
4) then I asked for fresh salmon sashimi, lazy guy told me to get the badly cut and not fresh anymore on the buffet (opened 1 hour ago), finally I told him I d write a review and he changed his mind.
then I asked for wakame and advocado which are a basic in japanese restaurant, there were none. I ordered a temaki, samlmo sluce was so thin that you could see through! come on , it s not a cheap restaurant in a mall!!!
edame quality was low. fried rice was good but not what you are looking for in a Japanese restaurant of this standing (in G hotel)
to conclude, salmon quality is fresh but low , it s pale and fatty.
maki are made with low quality cheap products.
we were regular clients before but something apparently changed in terms of quality of food and concept. we won t come.back.

The pictures say enough. The food was great. The service took a bit of prompting but they did push the large cockle. We did keep asking for the fresh or seasonal dishes. Only gripe I had was we kept asking for the origins of the extremely creamy avocado and can’t get a straight answer even if it was the supplier’s name.

Located on level 1 of G Hotel at Gurney Drive .
Sushi counter , tables and private room including tatami rooms are available too
Service is friendly
Food presentation is ok but taste average
We ordered so called Kobe beef ( should be Wagyu and not sell as Kobe ) steak and also sukiyaki . At
Ringgit 220 per person is definitely not cheap
Unagi and some sushi roll are quite ok
Not worth a special trip

Lovely meal. Great sashimi!
Love their ochazuka. Light but great portion for a small eater. Need more attention to the service at the corner tables.
