We’re pretty sure you would already know that along the streets of Old Klang Road, you will be able to feed your cravings for Japanese when it comes by easily.
Xenri & Ishin both caters an upscale Japanese dining for their patrons, with a modern interior and displaying their sophisticated ambiance. With a Japanese restaurant like these, price could come hefty too.
Never did we know that hidden in the neighbourhood off Old Klang Road, lies a family-centered Japanese restaurant known as Nihon Kai is offering good quality Japanese food that is affordable & light on the wallet.
It was our very first time seeing a Japanese restaurant packed to brim like this, and we have to wait at least 30 minutes to be seated (this is considered quick). Most patrons have to be seated at the corridors outside. We were lucky enough to be seated upstairs after half an hours of queueing. The restaurant is small, with minimal decorations and most patrons here are mainly family profile.
Shake Sashimi – RM21
Though not of superior quality, the sashimis were still pretty fresh
Itako & Kurage – RM7
Edamame – RM7
Japanese Soy Bean is our virtual must order
Soft Shell Crab Maki – RM26
Great portion of Maki and the soft shell crab were crunchy too.
Tamago Sushi – RM6 (4pcs)
Ebi Sushi – RM10 (4pcs)
Shake Sushi – RM10 (4pcs)
Ebi Don – RM13
Generous portion of deep fried prawn with egg and miso soup. The portion is seriously huge. No kidding. And the prawns were very flavourful too.
Ebi Tempura – RM19
Fried Rice with assorted Seafood – RM9
Read from a few blogs that this fried rice surprised them and it’s one of the must order, and so we did. It’s pretty delicious!
Ramen – RM13
But this tasted kinda bland
Katsu Curry Rice – RM16
Another generous portion of carbs and protein, the chicken cutlets were perfectly deep fried till golden brown. And as for the curry katsu, they uses beef stock to create the flavoursome taste.
