Pork-free, serves alcohol


This post is based on ala carte menu by Yugo. All orders were recommended by the Founder.


Food:

Overall a decent place for Japanese Fusion. Sadly the Off-The-Menu items didn’t taste as good as the ones on the Menu, despite being priced at a higher price point. Portion was on the smaller side too.


Off-The-Menu:

Otoro from the Otoro Foie Gras (RM250) was a tad overcooked so it wasn’t melt-in-the-mouth and the uni wasn’t of much help. Foie Gras was good tho!



Fresh Cut Somen (RM78) with assorted Sashimi was slightly bland, dressing needed a bit more acidity. Sashimi was decent tho!





Lamb Rack (RM78) came overcooked (Medium-well). The founder gladly changed it for us, and it came back Medium (perfect for my liking). It was tender but required more seasoning.



Herbs Scallop (RM120/4pcs) was slightly overcooked, but still acceptable. Nothing WOW tho.


Regular Menu:

Halibut Pureto (RM45) was moist and well-seasoned. Garlic rice was okay.



Ika Salted Egg Pasta (RM38) was impressive! The pasta was coated in rich salted egg sauce, and the Squid was bursting with Umami!



Salmon Risotto (RM50) was the star of the night. It was aldente, creamy and cheesy, great flavour from the Porcini Mushrooms too! Salmon had crispy skin and lightly pink in the centre. Would come back just to have this!


Sirloin Steak (RM48) was very rare in the centre. She sent it back to the kitchen and it came back between Rare to Medium-rare. Tasted decent but portion was quite small.



Beef Gyoza (RM28) was slightly chewy but quite flavourful.


Wagyu Sliders (RM30) were juicy and sweet from the caramelised onions



The Founder offered Complimentary Banana Chocolate Bar & Ocha Creme Brûlée! Thank you 🙏🏻



Service:

The Founder was very friendly and attentive. Took feedbacks seriously too.


Ambience:

Clean and comfortable dining area, bar seatings and private area available.


Disclaimer:

Perhaps ratings would be higher if I ordered only from the menu. Will be back to re-evaluate!
