I agree with one of the reviewers, forget this joint. Our dinner came up to RM250 for a few pieces of sashimi, cuttlefish, oyaku don and chirashi. After paying the bill, we rushed to Sea Good to complete our dinner. Probably for hygiene reasons, Minoru...More

Myself come here often, and I would say to date this is still the best Japanese restaurant in town. However best quality comes with a price. Their ingredient are all very fresh, I have come numerous time and never once have complain on freshness.
