Review: Ume-Tei Japanese Restaurant @ Amcorp Mall

It's not surprising to find affordable food in Amcorp Mall including Japanese food. In this case, Ume-Tei Japanese Restaurant is one of them. Located on the 3rd floor, it's quite easy to spot them being diagonally opposite the big boys toy shop. The staff is friendly and service is efficient even during lunch hour. Their set meals are value for money indeed.

These are some of the sets that I've tried and I've to say they're rather good and definitely value for the amount you need to fork out. This one is Soba Set (RM15.00) that came with 2 lettuce and cucumber handrolls; a bowl of soba; a side dish of shredded turnips, carrots and black fungus; plus the usual piece of fruit. A simple meal but quite hearty.

The Ramen Set (RM18) have a bowl of simple ramen; a bowl of rice which we asked to be sub with garlic fried rice; fried chicken chop; side dish; pickle and fruit. The garlic fried rice is absolutely fragrant. It's quite a whole of stuff to be eaten in one seating.

Tori Karaage Set (RM20.00) consist of tuna and salmon sashimi slices; deep fried chicken pieces; rice which we sub with garlic fried rice; 2 side dishes; a bowl of miso soup; pickles and fruit. Value for money or not?? Even though the tuna and salmon sashimi is not of superb top class quality, nevertheless, they're much better than the usual conveyor belt cuts. The deep fried chicken pieces are crispy on the outside, moist and tender inside. Yum!

For this kinda easy on the pocket prices, I'm not complaining. They're certainly not Japanese fine dining quality but it's acceptable to satisfy ones hunger for Japanese food in the mall.

They charge 10% service charge and 5% Government tax. Green tea or plain water is complimentary too which the wait staff diligently kept topping up.
