Environment: 5/10
It was slightly warm and tatami room was not available during my visit.

Food Presentation: 4.5/10
A simple final touch to each dish presented.

Portion: 4/10
Generally it is 1 piece per portion. Take note, for each order is limited to 3 portions for a person.

Taste: 5/10
For fast serving food, the taste is as up to my expectation. Fast food standard.

Service: 2/10
As this is the first weekend of the promotion, the system and work flow is not properly in placed. Long interval of waiting between orders. Many of my orders were lost. At the end i did not manage to tried out many dishes.

Value for money: 7.5/10
Normal price RM35++ per person. Until 20 August 2009, 1 free for 4 paying guests of A'la Carte Buffet. If you go in 5, each person pays only RM32.20 (include tax).

The food choices is good for the priced offered. Hope that service will improve and the food can be served faster. To give a good and memorable dining experience to customers.

  5. Thanks for the update Caslyn.


  6. Anonymous Said,


    The buffet for weekdays is only available for lunch ?? Thanks


  7. Hies - Yes is it for lunch only. Remember to make your reservation in advance.


  8. Anonymous Said,

    Hi, new to the blog, i called up and they sed that everything is free flow except for sashimi.. I still dun understand what it means?


  9. They have changed their offer.

    RM35++ per person - serves only 1 round of sashimi

    RM48++ per person - all you can eat from the ala carte menu


  10. MC Khaw Said,

    I tried it with my family 2 wks back and was so disappointed. We reached at 1pm and by 1.45, our 1st round of orders has not even finished been served and the staff told us it was the last order call. We barely ate anything yet at that point.

    Food served was so slow. Portion pathetically small. Service has not improved at all. We had to order in multiple quantum until we lost track and the same thing keeps coming out. Most orders lost and never served.

    My advise... DO NOT GO. WASTE OF MONEY.
