Sushi Zanmai @ Cyberjaya, Selangor

Sushi Zanmai is a chain of Halal Japanese restaurants that can be found in most of the shopping malls in Malaysia. In fact, the parent company runs a couple of sister brands that operate across the country. This evening, we were in the mood for some Japanese food and one place where we could be certain of getting good Japanese food at reasonable prices would be Sushi Zanmai. Luckily, they also have an outlet in DPulze Mall, Cyberjaya which is close by for me. 

Broad Variety To Choose From

Sauces & Cutlery

Cold Green Tea
One thing that always impresses me is the amount that they have invested in robotics and the present system that they have established in all their outlets. Everything happens in such a methodical manner and they are all extremely speedy. Things happens so fast and systematically and it's really impressive to see. Sauces, cutlery and all that you may need is neatly placed on all the tables and they are speedy to serve the drinks. The Green Tea here is good, regardless of which one you order, hot or cold. My rating for their Green Tea would be 8/10. 

Chawanmushi @ RM 5.80 

Spicy Chick Toji @ RM 12.80
The Chawanmushi that you get here is pretty decent. Of course, it would be right to compare this to the ones that you get at specialty Japanese restaurants or those run by celebrity Japanese chefs. This has got a taste of it's own. Though the egg isn't as soft and silky as the one that you would get at those celebrity restaurants, still for the price it is quite decent. My rating for this preparation shall be 7/10. The Spicy Chick Toji is something that I am trying for the first time. Firstly, it wasn't spicy at all but it had a mild hint of spiciness and a slightly sour aftertaste. Ingredients wise, it was Tofu, So Hoon and chicken bits. Taste wise, I would rate this 7/10. 

Saba Shioyaki @ RM 15.80

Ebi Mentaiyaki @ RM 18.80
Their Saba Shioyaki was good and the preparation here is one of my favourites. Perfectly grilled and the marination was awesome. 8/10 shall be my rating for this. Similarly, their Ebi Mentaiyaki was good too and topped with some delicious cheese. Another one that I would rate at 8/10. 

Assorted Sushi @ RM 29.80

View From The Other End
Sake Zanmai is a platter that comes with an assortment of items and it gets you to sample a little of each. Good for sharing and perfect when you're just in the mood to sample a little of this and that. Lovely preparation and they were fresh. My rating for this platter shall be 8/10. 

The Bill
For some consistently good Japanese food, Sushi Zanmai would be my choice of restaurant. Of course, it would not be fair to compare these guys with the specialty Japanese restaurants or even restaurants run by celebrity chefs from Japan. What you get here is decent Japanese food at reasonable prices. Most importantly, they are conveniently located in most malls in the Klang Valley.
