After a good meal on their first outlet which is at Pavilion at Tokyo street, now they have opened another outlet in Paradigm mall, one of the mall that I often drop by as its near my working place. Suki-Ya : Eat All You can Shabu-Shabu from RM29.80++ which is more Japanese authentic steamboat. This would not be my first time for this brand and upoh their new outlet opening, we decided to drop by again as their price for buffet lunch is very reasonable at RM 29.80++ that only offer you a spot for maximum 2 hours.

Sukiya (1)

Sukiya (2)

Here would be the price of the buffet with operating time ..

Sukiya (3)

Surprisingly its quite pack or its full house ..

Sukiya (4)

Sukiya (5)

Dining area in this outlet would be slightly different as they have some private rooms available. .

Sukiya (6)

In this counter that offer variety of vegetable for your shabu shabu . .

Sukiya (7)

Sukiya (8)

What do they have for deserts is ice-cream in 3 flavours.

Sukiya (9)

Sukiya (10)

This is my favourite that we can order unlimited of fine cut meat slices, Chicken, Lamb and Beef.

Sukiya (11)

If you ask me which soup base is the best, I still vote for my favourite Suki-Ya soup base, which is abit more salty authentic taste of Japanese flavour that I have tried, but for me dipping too much of red meat into the soup, it turns not so good. . 😀

Miso is not bad after you concrentrate heavily on Sukiya and Kimchi I do not really like it.

Sukiya (12)

Sukiya (13)

Here we are, enjoying our meal and MC really whack alot of the meat. While saying full. . keep eating. .

Sukiya (14)

For a price like this, I would say its a buffet spread that worth a try as it only allow you to enjoy 2 hours dinning which is far more than enough.

Others you can try:

  1. Mikoshi – Uptown Damansara
  2. Mo-Mo Paradise – Lot 10
  3. Kuro – Plaza Arkadia

Adult (lunch) – RM 29.80 ++
Kids (lunch) – 50% disc off buffet price

Adult (Dinner) – RM33.8- ++

To many Penangnites, I am sure with the restaurant name like Tao Authentic Asian Cuisine that offer buffet range, that have 3 outlets spread accross 2 in Penang and 1 in Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara KL (click here) and now this restaurant chain have opened up another new concept which is rather interesting that located in Penang Times Square called Yea Japanese BBQ & Shabu Shabu Buffet.

One of the reason that visited this buffet was my dad saw some blogger post that circulate in email and he had been asking us to come for the past 2 months since it had open till now we decided to come along.

yea (1)

It is very interesting to see how the whole new concept that they have build to another brand with very Japanese exterior and interior. ..

yea (2)

 

yea (3)

You can be seated in a few sections, this is a private room that can host up to 10 pax and you have to remove your shoes and put outside.

yea (14)

yea (4)

this section would be their outdoor area. . .

yea (5)

as me and my family was quickly seated, I walk around the whole restaurant to check out what is there to offer.

yea (6)

The range of food that they offer is pretty interesting. One of the best is not to miss on their homemade, fish, sotong and pork ball. . .

yea (7)

Fresh Oyster, Salmon with huge piece, scallop are all in this fridge for you to finish. Another fridge with lots types of seafood, for you to choose from.

yea (12)

This would be the best section to me with variety of meat to offer. I have tried all the meat and those lamb, lean pork, pork bacon, korean style pork are the one you must look out for. . .

yea (13)

yea (8)

Soft drinks counter and you just need to request a glass with ice in it.

yea (9)

Desert counter.

yea (10)

Variety of sauces available as one of the reason that, you are going to mix and learn to cook on the  on with their grill charcoal stove on your table.

yea (11)

ice cream that alot of kids attack on.

yea (15)

We ask on the waiter what soup is good and he recommend that most customer would opt to try their signature soup which is the clear soup base ‘Shabu Shabu’ (昆布柴魚湯)

yea (16)

In your table you will be provided with this utilities for you to play with . .

yea (17)

My meat plate..wakkaka~ and more that I have had till my parents surrender. 😀

yea (18)

What is so unique about this whole new concept is that they have this charcoal grill stove smack right in the table for you to bbq your dish. Most of the meat or things available are already pre marinated and now you will look like a cool Japanese chef in training.

yea (19)

put all the item that you would want on this grill and just turn around as you want.

yea (20)

You can put your huge chunk of salmon, prawns and other seafood to cook along.

yea (21)

Huge scallop to be stim on ..

yea (22)

and this is what happen to our pot of shabu shabu, as my mom loves it.

yea (23)

Each table will come with all these few basic ingredients, one of the reason if you do dine in Teppanyaki restaurant you see those chef add on those pepper and salt, now you are your own chef to do it and play around with these to make your food tastier.

yea (24)

This are the Opening promotion that they have now, and if you can really eat and do not mind getting fat, join their Supper happy hour which is Buy one Buffet at Regular Price and 2nd person 50% which is really worth it.

Among many buffet out there, certainly I am recommending this to go with its price smack on at RM48++ that comes to about RM55 per head that offer lots of seafood and meat for you to eat on. Having great sessions with friends I am looking forward to come back for another round.

Food taste is pretty good and did not disappoint us.

Best advice to call in for reservation that will convenient you.

***Remark you need to spend at least 2 hours to eat cuz of the grill time it takes to cook. Me and my family find that 2 hours is not enough cuz we went for late lunch as they were to close for that hour.

When you are in downtown shopping, in Pavilion, there are something new for you guys to explore is the newly renovated Tokyo Street located on the 6th floor in Pavilion. Its a section that house many Japanese eateries, Japanese products and some house hold goods for you to explore. After they have open quite a while, this is my first time being here and SukiYa is one of my favourite.

sukiya (1)

Under this section, the whole area is filled with Japanese ambiance with their look and feel of all those outlets.

sukiya (2)

The outlets that are in the middle section are all mostly build with Japanese wooden concept, and lanterns at the side of the shop.

sukiya (3)

sukiya (4)

Most of the restaurant here sell fusion food  . ..

sukiya (5)

Japanese Desert – Mochi Sweets.

sukiya (6)

Another Japanese Restaurant .. .

sukiya (8)

As for this round, we are trying out this outlet that offer buffet spread which is Suki-Ya : Eat all you can Sukiyaki & Shabu Shabu, which is more like a Japanese Steamboat. . .

sukiya (9)

The ambiance is not bad that is pretty well design that if you come in big group they can combine all the tables for you in one section.

sukiya (10)

Sauce wise is pretty limited in selection . . .

sukiya (11)

Healthy bar that offer a good selection’s of greens to be put into shabu shabu . .

sukiya (12)

sukiya (13)

sukiya (14)

There are only 3 choices of soup available, Shabu-Shabu which is more like a clear soup and I heard the table next to me mention that the soup is tasteless. . .then we opt for Sukiyaki and Kimchi Soup.

Among the 3, Sukiyaki is the best as the taste of the soy is pretty strong which reflects to the original taste I had before, not too salty and its quite aromatic. .  Recommended among those 3. . For Kimchi, under Japanese restaurant.. not as good as you tried in those Korean restaurant. So close one eye .. .

sukiya (15)

sukiya (16)

Then on the paper they teach you all the steps how do you do the best shabu shabu out .. 🙂

sukiya (17)

We opt for the healthy options and pour everything in . . .

sukiya (18)

Then you get free flow of thin slice, Lamb, Beef and Chicken . . .The best of all is Lamb follow by Chicken then Beef as the beef slice I find it taste funny or we rate it as a low grade beef slice!

sukiya (19)

For beef slice, its pretty simple and quick that you just take a slice and dip it for about 10 seconds then its done . .

sukiya (20)

Then we had the sauce as the Sesame sauce is GOOD that you must request and normally I eat most of my food with their special homemade chili sauce.. A bit sour, chopped with lots of garlic and a bit spicy, that pair well with all the meat that I have. ..

My friend taught that, take a raw egg and stir it well, then after the meat had cook, dip it and eat along with any sauce it just perfect!

sukiya (21)

Then would let you finish off with Ice cream . .

The service here is good as they have alot of staff on duty and our slices of meet constantly got refill and the best part is the manager drop by and ask you, do you want more refill which we had raise white flag as this would be the first time that the staff ask do you want more!

For a price like this in Suki-ya I would say its a buffet spread that worth a try as it only allow you to enjoy 2 hours dinning which is far more than enough.

Adult (lunch) – RM 29.80 ++
Kids (lunch) – 50% disc off buffet price

Adult (Dinner) – RM33.8- ++
Kids (Dinner) – 50% disc off buffet price

I have always been wondering when I pass this shop no matter day or night, its always quite pack. It is that nice were the question I have been asking myself…cuz I have a very bad experience with their Sunway Branch. Till we went to lunch for the Shabu Shabu next door and they said, har..not that kind they prefer then we shifted to this shop and I start to say, weiii..don wan this shop can ah, then most of them agree here then what can I say some more. So just tag along la..

Papa Rich interior design is always kinda exclusive kopitiam concept as when I stayed at my aunts place at Seapark there are 1 Papa Rich also which is quite pack with people and the same with Old Town. Currently I would rate that Old Town main competitor is Papa Rich which had been mushrooming like crazee. Popping up in most of the makan makan area.

In the menu, picture illustration is even better than Old Town but the only thing to test on was their quality of food.

Kopi Si Peng was strong in coffee flavour but disappointing the ais is to much which for a few sips its gone. Left the ice-bone.

Their Kaya and Butter Toast’ which is a bit different because they separate it out and let you spread it over yourself and the best part is the give you the whole slice of butter. The bread was bakar to crispiness on the edge and spread kaya and butter given is just very nice.
Nasi Lemak which the rice is cook with some santan which we prefer and the curry chicken is not that spicy, a bit lemak and the sambal is just nice. Not too spicy but eat along just pull up the taste of the dish.

I love their version of ‘Curry Mee which is very lemak and a bit thick in soup base. A bit spicy yet the soup is boiling hot which suits to my likings and I eat till sweating all over.
‘Prawn Mee look very disappointed but we were surprise by the taste of it. It was serve very oily base and we slowly scoop it off and left a bit which its original version should be and the soup base is very flavourful, taste like they had take the prawn shell to crush and cook with it. Its very sweet prawn shell base aroma and added in the chili making it spicy is just perfect yet its boiling hot.
‘Dry Ipoh Koey Teow which I find it nothing special to talk about as there are better ones.
I have lost the receipt but I can say that the price is slightly more expensive than Old Town but for this branch I definitely do not mind to come here again and its a good place for hang out with friends too.

It was raining a few days ago and since it is still in Chinese New Year mood, deciding to eat someting warm with soup. So ended up here where I can think off. This is my second visit here.


This is the bar area or I would name it ‘Soup refill center’.

The interior of the restaurant was nicely renovated with a very nice standard area for having shabu shabu.

Not much choice to choose from in the menu compare to other Japanese restaurant and to come here it is mainly for their Shabu Shabu.

This is how the soup been poured into the pot like some mini tab water flowing.I chose the soup ‘Nagomi‘ which is a clear soup as my friend can’t take spicy. Chose it because the same name of the restaurant and assume it is their signature soup. Actually, the clear soup is taste nothing special, just a normal soup can be done. I would not recommend this soup again but for those who are sick will be a good recommendation. Can try Spicy as previously I was having Spicy soup.

A glass of green tea RM2.50

Ordered this Wantan Cheese Furai. The name attracted me to order it and to my surprise it was pretty small in portion with a total of 9 pieces all together. This cost RM 10.

Well, this is how the cheese got squeeze out from the wantan. Mozzarella cheeze? no idea. Still cheeze, believe it is similar to those in Steven corner cheeze nan.
The 3 different sauce, the first(from left) soy sauce, don know what chili sauce and don know what peanut sauce(taste the nicest among 3)
This was my Shaby Shaby order. All comes with 1 plate of veggie.
I have ordered ‘Duck Shabu Shabu. If you guys can take beef, please go for the beef. It taste much nicer compare to chicken or duck. The meat was thinly slice where you can just take your chop stick and stir it once in the hot soup it will be ready to eat. This duck cost RM31+veggie
Then there will be a waiter to come help you out to do the stir the meet in the middle of the duck shabu shabu. This is how the process goes.

The nicely done 4 not so big meat balls in the middle of the plate. Thanks to the staff there.
This is the pot of veggie and duck meat after I have put in half of the portion.
Order another this which looks unique, so this is Ebi Tempura Maki only 4, Yes and only 4. It have friend prawn tempura, fish egg, cucumber and don know what veggie. The taste is fresh and nice with the super cutting of the thiny cucumber slice and goes along very well with the wasabi and it was so spicy and i was tears dripping each bite. RM15

While waiting for the second round to be cook and I realise someting of the chopstick cover. It can be turn into…………..

Chopstick holder. Just follow on the steps behind the cover. You can make it.
The service there was so so and the food quality is pretty good as I would say, simple and nice.
The total bills comes into RM70.15 including service charge and service tax. The pricing is above average I would say for the total experience.
