Maiu

Maiu offers one of the Klang Valley's best value-for-money deals for Japanese food, with an "a la carte buffet" that costs a mere RM38.80++.

The selection includes salmon, tuna, white tuna & squid sashimi, served to order.

Marinated baby octopus & tobiko salad, all tasting as decent as can be expected.

Loved the fried tofu _ crisp on the exterior, but meltingly soft within.

Soft-shell crab maki. Not stuffed with too much rice, thankfully.

Prawn sashimi. Yep, all the basic dishes in Japanese cuisine are available, except eel.

Skewered green pepper & beef, freshly prepared. Order as many times as you like.

Soft-shell crab & surimi tempura, crisp and not overly oily.

Tempura moriawase, with reasonably juicy prawns as the highlight.

Small fish: shishamo.

Big fish: saba. This buffet is available at Maiu's Damansara Perdana & Sri Petaling branches.

Crispy chicken katsu with raw egg dip. Banish those salmonella poisoning fears.

More chicken & egg, this one steamed with rice. Marvelously moreish.

Green tea ice cream & wasabi ice cream (way too much wasabi in this one!).

Maiu,
The Place, Damansara Perdana.

  6. Ulric: I'm betting it'd be the same! Though I've driven past a few times, and it looks packed for dinner =)
    Michelle: oooh, sorry to hear that. I actually didn't realize there's a connection between eggs and skin...
    Baby sumo: Yeah, I'm not sure how much profit they can actually make from charging so little! Maybe RM15 profit on average per person...

  8. Baby sumo: heh, I actually live in Sri petaling, but I rarely eat in this area, since it's far from my workplace and most of my dinnermates :D
