Review: Sushi Zanmai

Enough of Chinese at the mo...

I have always meant to check out Sushi Zanmai ever since seeing countless postings of them in food blogs BUT there is always one deterrent factor - long queue!!! Something that put off Capt'n Hook, duh.


During December holidays, I took boiboi to watch Bolt 3D version at 1U whilst Capt'n Hook went to prepare some presentation slides at a cafe. After the show over, it was quite early for dinner but anyway I took boiboi over to Sushi Zanmai... and yet there is a queue snaking away. I decided to queue and nearing my turn I gave Capt'n Hook a call so he have no more excuses!

Whilst waiting for him come, I placed my orders and when he arrived, he placed his. We ended up having too much food :p

I so understand now why the queue thingy cos the sushi plus the food here are really above average plus the prices are certainly reasonable. Even though the place is packed but service is still attentive.

I'm not going to describe the stuff we ate but just let the pics do the talking...


Sake (L RM13)







Chicken Gyoza (RM9.80)

Kitsune Udon (Small RM6.80)

There were more food actually but I didn't managed to snap them up, the hot sake and drinks, all in all the bill came up to RM158.25 including 5% Government Tax and 10% Service Charge. See the receipt here for the detailed pricing.

the salmon with the fish roes looks really yummy... and the salmon is so fresh looking with its fatty strips so clear and visible...

i totally agree with you - above average sushi at very reasonable pricing! one of my fav...but other half prefers sushi groove.

The queue deters me too...yet to try although heard so much about it. Certainly looks good.

The food here looks good and have gone the 'extra mile' effort. I have not been there yet. Under Zanmai group Pasta Zanmai food is also good but some service glitches the last I was there.

Babe_KL said...

yes cindy, quite worth the price

ahh skinnymum, i've yet to try sushi groove

aiks, am surprised you haven't them them yet, pea!

worldwindows, wud loved to go Pasta Zanmai but i dunno how to convince my hubby to try since he's a traditionalist :p

Zanmai is my favorite conveyor belt sushi place! Did you know they're run by the same people as Rakuzen? :)

Babe_KL said...

yes KY, the great ppl of Rakuzen. i think they're building an empire now!

Simon Seow said...

Still my favourite kaiten sushi in terms of quality and pricing. Senjyu quality is good but a bit pricey. Sushi King sucks, Genki Sushi not bankrupt yet? and Sakae sushi, I don't like their service there, and quality doesn't matches the price they charged.

KY said...

Yah, they have some 10 restaurants now and still plan to open 2-3 this year despite the economy.

J2Kfm said...

yeah, the queue is a huge deterring factor. way past dinnertime, and have to be in line behind some 10 or so guests.

can't tahan lah .... someday, someday....
