Review: Nihon Kai Japanese Restaurant
Nihon Kai, ring a bell anyone? Haha I doubt so cos this is a hidden gem to me but who knows you might have been a regular here. Seriously the location of this Japanese restaurant is so obscure but yet this place could really fill up especially on weekends. My brother took us here once and we have returned because the food is good, comparable to many Japanese places we have been. Best of all the price is so reasonable without compromising on its quality.
Below are the upstairs dining area where there are about 3 tatami or private dining rooms and a sample of their offerings. Look at the price... what do you think?
We had a portion of Sake Sashimi (RM20.00) and it's fresh. Absolutely yummy.
I ordered the Beef Sukiyaki (RM19.00) dinner set that came with rice, miso soup and chawan mushi. The price here definitely beat those fast food sushi joints in terms of quality and service!
I've got loads of thinly sliced beef which cooked just right. I slurped the slippery slices up after dipping into the raw egg. In the pot has slices of mushrooms, carrots, cabbage and mung bean noodles (fun si in Cantonese). I wiped up every single morsels that were served to me *wide grin* which is bad cos there is no more room left for dessert. Grrrr...
Hubby ordered Salmon Shioyaki (RM17.00) dinner set which he complained not up to mark. He said that there isn't enough salt being rubbed over the salmon before grilling, hence the fish was rather bland. When he commented to the waitress whilst paying the bill, she told him it was supposed to be dipped in the soy sauce. We took a look and there isn't any sauce served in the platter. Ahhhh so they have forgotten to serve the accompanying sauce but then again from our experience, shioyaki style would have enough salt on it to render it tasty even on its own. Okie so far this is the only boo-boo we have experienced here. Anyway this set also came with the same accompanying condiments, miso soup, rice and chawan mushi like mine.
On other occasions, we absolutely loved their potato salad and the various sushi offered on their menu. At times there are some promotional item where the price could be a steal, so do check out with the waitress.
It's pretty easy to locate Nihon Kai, coming from KL (Mid Valley) side, go towards Old Klang Road. After the underpass, keep left, look out for the Kee Hing Tyre with big Michelin Tyre logo on signage and turn left right there (which is the road just before Shell). You should be able to see Nihon Kai at the double-storey shoplots. Parking is a breeze too unless you come on weekends.
Happy eating folks!
