japanese food in pj


My brother told me that, most of the time he pass by this shop it is always with queue and only recently for his Birthday he requested to dine here. Shin Zushi at Bukit Jalil is one of cheap Japanese dining in KL that many would hunt for. Famous among my circle of friends too. They are well know for their cheap sushi or Japanese food in Bukit Jalil. Only then I realise that they have a few other branches too.

Christmas is just around the corner and all of us are excited to have friends gathering. This was during mid of this year when I visited this outlet Shakariki 432 Sake Dining at Desa Sri Hartamas, KL. This outlet had been in my list for quite a while.


A place that offer nearly all selections like Sushi, Yakitori, Oden and sets.


A simple Japanese, Yakitori place and of course their happy hour is da bomb! Will definitely drop by again but I am not too sure as this menu was during July 2020. RM 12 for Sapporo beer is very good deal.




Menu is very extensive and it seems they have another outlet in Publika.



This their pork charsu is damm good. Burnt crips on the edge and whole piece is well marinated.


They have quite a unique selection of sushi roll. Crunchy Roll @ RM 25. Crispy outside and flavourful inside.


This is one of my favourite.  Shisho Kaoru Dashi Chazuke @ RM 15



a skewer of pork @ RM 7


Not a bad place for a Yakitor Japanese food in KL if you are looking for a few variety. Parking here can be an ass but oh well. Pricing is quite reasonable.

Starting off with Shiitake Nanban @ RM 12.90. an interesting combination of Shiitake Mushroom, paired with chicken breast and deep fried in special Nanban sauce. Chicken is tender and juicy with shiitake mushroom taste and the sauces goes very well with it.
