“Great neighborhood Japanese restaurant”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

It's so convenient to have a Japanese restaurant literally in your backyard! Always full but call in advance and they'll have a table for us. We usually have their perfectly steamed edamame and perfectly fried ebi tempura for starters. Hubby always has his chicken katsu and son and I tried their seasonal special this time - he had grilled flounder and me, something called Wagyu Sukini. Service is good - everything comes in a timely manner. There were 5 ebi tempura and since we were sharing they agreed to add one more for RM5 to make it 6! Can't complain about the restaurant - good food, good service n atmosphere, reasonable prices.

“Good Japanese food at Plaza Damas”
Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

Visited often by japanese expats, this restaurant provides authentic Japanese food.
There's an extensive menu with enough choice for every taste. Portions are adequate for the price, though the dishes containing wagyu ( except those where the weight is mentioned) have a very small amount of meat.
Service could be improved; the waiter couldn't explain the content of some menu items and a couple of times we were brought someone else's drinks. Despite that it is good value for money. Male a reservation if you plan to go in the weekend.

“Rakuzen - Desa Park City”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I been patronising this outlet many times. However, for my past 2 visits, this outlet is getting from bad to worse. First is the seating, where everytime i will get to seat at the corner and the air conditioner is leaking. Told the manager about this on my last 2 visits, but nothing has been done. same problem when i went to this outlet on yesterday. Secondly they served old salmon sashimi and the portion is extremely small. Despite this, they dont bother to fulfill my request for a spoon and extra sauce for the salad. The service is bad and the food taste is getting bad.

“Dinky Decor. Nice food.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

I like the decor. You can sit in a dark little booth with a companion, or at the sushi bar. There are conventional tables as well.

You can keep your favourite bottle of whiskey in the wall case in Japanese style.

The levels of sashimi moriawase are usually pretty good. Occasional specialties like salmon roe in a cocktail glass keep us coming back.
