Yuzu Japanese Restaurant is a sister restaurant of Ninja Jones, tucked away in a quiet corner besides Isetan. The interior oozes a warm and welcoming ambiance. As one walked in further, you'll noticed the restaurant is rather large with each corner decorated in a different setting altogether. There are "rooms" or rather separated dining area for groups according to sizes as well if you requested for one. Their menu seems extensive and there is monthly promotion as seen on their bunting outside the restaurant.
That evening we decided to go for the set dinner which I opted for Yuzu Gozen (RM48) that came with assorted sashimi and sushi; tempura; beef cubes grilled on a stone; teapot soup; chawan mushi; the usual pickled and side dishes plus a couple slices of watermelon to end the meal. The quality of the sashimi was good since they just arrived. The tempura were light in oil. I kinda liked the beef cubes that were set sizzling on a slab of black stone. The grilling and caramalising of the beef smelt great.
Capt'n Hook who is not really a fish person ordered Salmon Yuzu Kosho and Saikoro Beef Set (RM40). Some how he liked how the Japanese treat their salmon ala shioyaki and he seems pretty pleased with Yuzu's version. His set came with beef cubes in a hotplate; teapot soup; chawan mushi; pickled and side dishes pluswatermelon slices. As he sipped on his soup... I heard him went "ahhhhhh..." <-- sounds of approval???
As it was a week night, service was attentive since the restaurant is not crowded. Capt'n Hooked even have time to learnt how to say "chei-zu tin-bar-te" (thank you in Myanmar language) from the waitress kekeke...
Once we were done, she asked if we would like to take a look around the restaurant which we obliged. We bumped into their chef who is a local Chinese. He went on showing us these strange looking fishes on display. If we have seen these earlier, perhaps one of these would have been on our platter.
