IDon Japanese Restaurant @ Sunway Putra Mall

Fun-to-slurp noodles, fulfilling rice bowls & freshly fried tempura: Sunway Putra Mall's latest restaurant capably tackles the fuss-free crowd-pleasers of casual Japanese cuisine, making it a satisfactory stop for fairly priced fare if you work in Chow Kit.

IDon's udon recipes form the foundation of its menu, with a full dozen varieties available, from kitsune to mentaiko noodles. We spiced up our lunch with two hot-sellers - the classic Japanese vegetable curry, mild & creamy with carrots, potatoes & onions (RM11.50), & the contemporary Malaysian-inflected dry chilli, evoking pan mee, complete with minced meat, anchovies & mushrooms (RM11.50); the handmade udon is fresh, smooth & firm, offered in the popular, locally sourced sanuki type.

Prefer rice? IDon's got you covered with eight separate rice bowls - we enjoyed our Nikku Beef, boasting tender, thinly sliced meat simmered in sweetish soy stock, crowned with a runny egg for extra comfort (RM12.50). It's sufficient as a meal on its own, but if you'd like to munch on a bit more, the beef ball soup (RM6.50) & gyoza (RM7.50) both prove to be worthy snacks.

Fans of battered temptations, there's lots to like here, from the fleshy, protein-powered ebi tempura (RM3.50 per piece), irresistibly crisp-&-textured squid tempura skewer (RM6.50) & predictably juicy chicken karaage (RM5.50) to the fibre-fuelled eggplant (RM4) & enoki (RM4.50), doing justice to the tradition of tempura. Thanks to IDon's friendly team for having us.
