Nijumaru Japanese Restaurant.

The Nijumaru Japanese Restaurant is quite upscale with 2 private rooms and a large colorful menu of all Japanese cuisine style.

The large poster on the restaurant's front facade is pure eye catching.

The moment we walked into the restaurant all eyes was on us as the wait staff chorused in unison "irashaimase" which means welcome.

The decor is simple with a play of soft lighting on dark wood walls.

Service was friendly and attentive.

Parking is OK.

Two woven rice bags.

Full scale Bento sets like Tori Katsu Miso set (grilled chicken cutlet with miso)-Rm17, Unagi set (Eel)-Rm21, Unagi/Tempura set-Rm25- were favorites of the young guys-full filling.

Edamame (green snow bean) was overcooked and mushy-Rm6.

Ebi Miso Yaki-Cheese baked Tiger prawn-fresh, cheesy and succulent-Rm19.

Sanma Shioyaki-Grilled Pacfic Saury fish with salt-salty, rough textured and tasted like Kembong fish-Rm11.

Grilled Yellowtail fish head with salt and luster-very fine textured and smooth-balanced beautifully with the Soy sauce-Rm19.

Tempura prawn-lightly batter-crispy, fresh and juicy.

Unagi Ura Maki -Eel roll with rice, avocado, cucumber and topped with fish roe-Rm15.

Beef Koro-Koro-beef with rice set-tender with delicious gravy to go with the rice-Rm21 .

Kawa Mentaiko Maki-Fish roe roll-rich and special -Rm19.

Nameko Chawan with soft earthy Autumn mushroom on steamed egg-smooth and melt in the mouth sensation-Rm8.

Ninniku Chahan-Garlic fried rice-fragrant and whole grained.

Sake Salmon-Salmon rolled with rice and a piece of Nori (seaweed)-full of carbo-Rm5.

Okosama Teisyoku-Children set-pasta, french fries, watermelon and a bottle of Vitagen for Siew An An, the youngest in the group-Rm10.

Free flow Green tea to round off the great meal.

We enjoyed the meal on a sunken rectangular dining table in a private room while the rest of the group dined outside.

Ooh, the sashimi was quite expensive! In my area it is usually more expensive compared to cooked food but not that big of a difference. But the serving looks quite big in your photo :).
