  1. Chicken Sukiyaki option, priced @ RM68 per person

These are part of the menu, as this Japanese Buffet in KL is offering order from the menu instead of a whole long line of food offerings at the table. They are prepared fresh from the kitchen as you order. Full menu click here

If you are a good drinker, then you have an option of topping up with RM 100 to enjoy free flow drink.  From 4pm – 10pm (with 2 hours limit)

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (6)

There are 3 different types of soup base available:

  1. Sukiyaki – this is bent towards more sweet base
  2. Spicy miso – personal favourite with recommended
  3. Shabu Shabu Original – one of the best option too

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (8)

What you can help yourself are these sauces and condiments from the table right in the middle. Including Green Tea too.

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (18)

For different package as mention the only difference are: Agnus beef where the quality of meat is nicer and for Australian beef it is also pretty good enough for me (on the right)

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (10)

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (11)

There are plenty of sides that you can order and just do order those you can finish. Try to avoid food wastage. Edamame to start off with.

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (12)

and of course how can we miss out the sashimi. They even serve maguro for sashimi, that is where I ate at least 10 pieces. Salmon Carpaccio and Salmon Sashimi are all pretty good too. Fresh and the cut is pretty generous.

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (13)

For Sushi, it is pretty good too. I had

  1. Salmon Nigiri Sushi
  2. Spicy Salmon Nigiri Sushi
  3. Seared Salmon Nigiri Sushi
  4. Tamago Nigiri Sushi
  5. Inari Sushi
  6. Spicy Salmon Nigiri Sushi
  7. Crunchy California Roll

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (14)


Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (15)

  1. Nanban Fried Chicken with Tartar Sauce
  2. Agedashi Tofu
  3. Kaarage Pepper Chicken Wings – this is recommended as goes so well with beer or sake
  4. Teppan Grilled Spicy Chicken

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (16)

Grilled Sanma Saury with Japanese Salt


Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (19)

Some healthy option which is the chef special : Tofu Salad

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (20)

Of course we do have our drinks too. I had a few high balls and a few bottles of Cold Sake to go along. It was indeed quite a satisfying dinner.

Kurata Japanese Fine Dining (21)

The only little problem to find this outlet is you have to walk through this buffet spread restaurant to reach Kurata Japanese Restaurant.

Indeed for RM 68 + buffet spread is quite a good value for me. As easily we eat in any of the Japanese restaurant with gathering, you will be spending around RM 50-RM 80 per head. With this, it is a buffet spread that every one gets to enjoy.

Restoran Ruby 祖传芝麻糊大王 or to be known as King of Chi Ma Wu at Pudu is one of a Chinese dessert or Chinese Tong Sui in KL to be. Waves of high praise for them upon their Sesame dessert.

King of Chi ma Wu (1)

We walk over from our pre-CNY dinner place at Restaurant Sek Yuen to here as just a stone throw away. Was told by my colleague that they are famous for a few dessert and try it out lo.

King of Chi ma Wu (3)

The stall looks more like herbal drink stall rather than a dessert stall.

King of Chi ma Wu (4)

King of Chi ma Wu (5)

Price is slightly on the high side.

King of Chi ma Wu (9)

Have you ever  seen a nice dessert art on your tong sui instead of those nice latte art. This is the first. A lot of heart and creativity in this.

The only thing stand out is Black Sesame which suits on the sign board. RM 3.50

King of Chi ma Wu (12)

I have high hopes on this Steamed Egg Custard @ RM 3.50.. However it was quite a let down in both taste and texture.

Well a dessert place that I wont return but again really depends on your taste bud. I do see alot people making take away like at least 3-10 per bag. Also again, the build up hype and comments for many people give me this set of expectation.

Have you ever thought  that our normal dessert taufufa can become a cocktail? Well, Tau Foo Fah, Jalan  Petalin @ RM 40 – an actual taufufa, with grass jelly and infuse with rum. A good taste experience, as a hint of nice aroma of soya infuse well with the rum. Not too overopowering  yet a nice balance of flavour.

Jann (13)


Right next to it is also indeed a unique drink by its own. Rojak – Jalan Sultan RM 40. Baradi Carta Blanca, Rojak Sauce, Ambra, Pineapple, Mango, Calamansi. I would best advise for all of you to share this drink. Not only a strong knock on your palate that gets you confuse but an very interesting drink.

Jann (15)

This is the most unique drink of all. It is a love hate relationship. by the name The Tailor – Jalan Sultan @ RM 45 is indeed a drink that is created to suits on the odor of the shop. A century old tailor shop at Jalan Sultan still uses traditional sewing machine. A drink with Jack Daniel whisky with infusion of bonito flakes. A drink that give you a strong knock on both smell and taste.
