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!).
The Place, Damansara Perdana.
