Kin Ryu Tei Japanese Restaurant @ Subang Jaya, Selangor

Located right opposite Sime Darby Medical Centre in Subang Jaya, is this row of shop lots that is filled with Japanese Restaurants. In the first row itself , there are four shops that are side by side and slightly further along the same block, you could find another two Japanese Restaurants. Having been in the area this afternoon, I decided to try one of these Japanese Restaurants called Kin Ryu Tei. 

Kin Ryu Tei Japanese Restaurant in SS 15, Subang Jaya

Small yet cosy space

Nice Interiors

Sushi Bar

Shelf Displaying Various Awards Won
This restaurant has a small common dining space and this is due to the fact that they have a number of private rooms inside and most of the space has been allocated to that. There was also a long bar for solo diners like me which was pretty comfortable. It was manned mainly by two waitresses and another guy to help out with the Sushi Bar. It seems that he is a Sushi specialist as I did not see him doing any other tasks throughout the time that I was there. Another thing that I noticed was a high shelf that displayed a number of awards that this restaurant has won over the years. As I was alone, I decided to sit at the counter as it seemed more practical bearing in mind that the number of tables here were limited. Another interesting point that I noticed when I checked in on Foursquare were the tips left by a number of users saying that this restaurant served really crap food. Now that worried me a little but again those tips seemed to have been at least three years old. I just thought to myself, if that many people find the food to be horrible, how could they have won the awards that they had over the years. I decided to just go ahead and try the food for myself and come to a conclusion therefrom.

The Menu

Set Lunches

Set Lunches

I was given two sets of menus when I was there. The larger one that you see is the Ala Carte Menu and for lunch, they do have these sets which seem like great value to me. That very set is priced double it's price in the Ala Carte menu. Perhaps the portion size could be bigger but I guess the Lunch Sets would be sufficient for the day. Having decided on the set, I ordered a Sushi Ramen set for RM 23.00 . This set comes with a number of items which I would speak of more shortly.Having confirmed my order, I was then handed the cold towel which is typical in most Japanese restaurants.  

Cold Refillable Green Tea @ RM 1.50
I settled for a cold Green Tea as my drink. This comes at a price of RM 1.50 and is bottomless which means that they would keep refilling it as it depletes. The Green Tea was pretty nice and I would rate this at 9/10 . 

Bowl of Ramen
The first items that was part of the set was the above bowl of Ramen. I should say that it was good. The soup was relatively nice and it was well flavoured. I would rate this Ramen at 8/10 . 

Vegetable Salad
The second item that came with the set was the above Vegetable Salad. I loved this salad for the simple reason that the vegetables were fresh and I loved the sweet and spicy sauce that came with it.  It went very well with the vegetables. Again I would rate this dish at 8/10 .

This by far is the best Chawanmushi that I have ever tried. I just do not know how to describe the taste but it was fabulous. I would rate this at 10/10 . It was a well perfected dish.   

A Platter of Various Sushis

A Platter of Various Sushis
The Sushis were really really good. It came with a wide variety and it was all included in the set. A great preparation. I would rate these at 9.5/10 . 

The last dish was this little platter of Papayas. Overall, the food here was extremely good and I enjoyed all the above for just RM 23.00 . I wonder why all the negative comments on Foursquare as I found the food to be excellent. For these guys to have been here for such a long time, they must have maintained the good quality especially when they have another three Japanese restaurants as their neighbours. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.
