Sushi Zanmai tag line-"A genuine conveyor sushi restaurant with 100 assortments of sushi and 100 varieties of cooked food that are authentically Japanese."

I have an affinity with this restaurant and the food served here-just cannot get enough of it.
My niece Iris came over for a holiday and we decided Sushi Zanmai was a good place to treat her for dinner.

As there were six of us, we did not get to sit near the snaking food conveyor.
Anyway, the sofa seating were a better alternative, more comfortable albeit a bit warmer, with a full view of the open kitchen.

Iris was too shy for a photo- one of her beautiful brown eye.

Caterpillar roll-sandwiched between toasted Unagi plus Tomago- rolled with rice and topped with slices of Avocado with toasted Black Sesame seeds on a bed of Mayonnaise and thick brown sauce-visually pleasing to the eyes and palates- Rm12.80/

Chicken Gy0za-crisp, well marinated and pan fried till golden brown-dip with black Vinegar and ate with pickled Ginger for extra flavors-Rm9.80/

Tendon-with assorted Tempura vegetables like Brinjal (Aubergine), French bean, Tempura Prawns, green Seaweed and preserved crunchy red Radish-served with short, plump Calrose rice with tasty sauce-for health conscious eater and those who are calorie conscious-Rm8.80/

Ebi-Prawn Sushi-a good starter-Rm3.80/

Kitsune Udon-with smooth Wheat noodle, tasty Miso soup, green Seaweed, Shimeiji Mushroom, Spring onion and spongy Bean curd-like sheet-elegant in both flavor and appearance-Rm6.80/

Edamane-young tender green Soy bean-appetizing-Rm3.80/

Kakiage Don-the photo on the menu looks nicer-lightly battered Prawns topped with dried green Seaweed and preserved red Radish with short plump Calrose rice and thick brown gravy-fulfilling-Rm8.80/

Sukiyaki Beef set-came piping hot on a casserole filled with Miso soup, assorted vegetables like Shiitake mushroom, Enoki mushroom, long white Cabbage and fired with a mini gas cooker-whisked raw egg into the soup while the thinly sliced fresh Beef are quickly dipped/ cooked to get a melt in the mouth sensation-Rm15.80/

Cha Soba-with delicate, nutty and delicious cold green Buckwheat/Wheatflour noodle mixed with the white radish, green Seaweed and chopped Spring onion and dipped into the soup and slurped it up loudly with your mouth-Heavenly!-Rm8.80/

Stamina roll-rice rolled with Tomago and topped with toasted Unagi and white Sesame seeds-delicious and toasted to perfection-Rm12.80/

one good thing bout Sushi Zanmai is that, they're rather reasonable, and over-ordering have you running to the nearest ATM.

Wow, looks so good! I like the sushi rolls. They remind me of when I used to order them whenever we went to a sushi restaurant- now we don't do it as often.
