The other recommended maki, was the pretty ordinary tasting Spider Roll filled with soft shell crab. We thought the portions were nice and generous, but somewhat lacking in the taste department. I kinda suspect it is due to the ingredients, as the fried items could have been prepared ahead, hence they are not very crispy. Usually this roll tends to be quite dry, but this version wasn't and didn't disintegrate after one bite.
a staple favourite of ours - Agedashi Tofu (RM16++)
We usually either eat a salad or a beancurd dish, whenever we do Japanese. This time round, it was beancurd, which Splashie Boy requested for the fried version. The beancurd was nice and smooth, with generous toppings of bonito shavings, spring onions and grated daikon radish.
from the special menu - Kaki Cheese Yaki (RM42++)
The menu here is divided into the usual dishes, set meals and the special dishes. I couldn't resist the baked oysters. Consisting of a generous platter of 5 oysters, the oysters were topped with sliced shitake mushrooms and onions, a cheesy sauce and gratinated under the grill till brown. A little too creamy and rich for me, I thought the taste was quite average.
Splashie Boy's favourite - seafood and beef on a hot stone (RM32++)
Beef is always a must, with my other half. We asked the waitress for a recommendation - she mumbled something super expensive that I could see someone shoot me a "no way! I'll pay for that" look. Instead, we went for the mixed seafood and beef on hot stone, which was served with a prawn, two pieces of salmon, beef and a Japanese green pepper. We were also served a sauce made from soy sauce and filled with daikon radish gratings on the side. Drizzle a bit on the food and the food tasted so delicious. Definitely the best item for the night.

Overall, we thought the food was just average, nothing much to shout about. To be honest, I was more excited with the view and the whole area, rather than the taste of the food even though they scored high for me with their Hawaiian Roll and the mixed seafood and beef on hot stone. Seems the restaurant at Old Klang Road, does buffets during the weekends but this place serves ala carte all the time. Good place to drop by, when you feel claustrophobic from all the traffic on Jalan Sultan Ismail. For bigger pictures, see my flickr set.
