Kuriya @ Bangsar Shopping Center

Poised to become one of Bangsar's best and busiest restaurants, Kuriya is a lovely place with satisfying food and friendly service.

The sashimi here easily passes the freshness test. The uni left us wanting more, while the sea bream tasted as good as raw fish gets.

Customers can choose seafood from the counter and have it cooked two ways.
We ordered the sea bream after being assured that it had just been flown in from Japan. At RM150, it wasn't cheap, but the grilled half was almost as enjoyable as the sashimi. Slightly less salt might have helped.

The swordfish with leek was not as successful, but still a solid selection.

Japanese cocktails helped wash down the meal. The Ninja Water blended sake with white chocolate, while the Fruity Sling comprised sake, cherry blossom syrup, peach syrup, kiwi, blueberries, strawberries, mango and soda.

  8. prices not outrageous actually ... order prudently (one or two rolls, some noodles/rice, grilled stuff and teppanyaki/teriyaki/tempura) and your bill for two people will not exceed RM 100...
