Located in the heart of the city center, along Jalan Sultan Ismail is this Japanese Restaurant that serves all-you-can-eat ala carte buffet without burning a hole in your wallet. Priced at only RM59.90++, I personally think that it is really reasonable for their wide array of food ranging from sashimi to cold cuts and nabemono, not forgetting desserts too! To see the full menu, feel free to check out their Facebook page. It took us a while to decide what to order but we both agreed to not waste our stomach capacity on sushi and rice // eating buffet also needs strategy okay. Charges will be imposed for food wastage so be sure to not over order too.
Kicking start our meal with Chuka Idako; seasoned baby octopus.
Smooth silky Chawanmushi is my staple when it comes to Jap food.
Takoyaki topped with bonito flakes. They did it with just the right amount of batter with generous filling.
Kev's favourite Saba Shioyaki which he claimed was just so-so.
The highlight of the meal would be their gorgeously sliced (and fat) sashimi!
We tried Tuna, Salmon and Butterfish sashimi, equally fresh and succulent.
And not to forget these ebi tempura in delicate and lacy gold batter that was fried to perfection; not too greasy. We had to have two servings of these!
More salmon sashimi please!
Juicy bite-sized beef cooked in Butteryaki style; one of our favourite dishes too.
Fresh shrimps served on ice; definitely worth the order.
Decided to try their udon too and it was pretty tasty, love the soup especially.
Agedashi tofu which was nothing extraordinary.
Despite being stuffed to the brim, there is definitely still room for dessert. I chose the matcha (like duh) ice-cream while Kev tried out the black sesame ice-cream. Their ice-creams are quite decent, I must say!
A well fed kid is always happy! :D trying to hide my bulging tummy at the same time HEH
It can be quite packed over the weekends, so do call in for reservation beforehand to avoid disappointment. Overall, it was quite a satisfying meal at Mitasu but I must admit that we kind of overestimated ourselves and went overboard. We had to stay away from Japanese food for a while. But surely we will come back for another visit if we are up for a buffet challenge, maybe with a better strategy (haha!) larger group people so we can try out more dishes.
