Kikyo Jen's attraction: All-you-can-eat weekday lunches & dinners that currently cost RM39.90+, a fair price but not a steal, considering what's served.
The selection comprises some 80 choices, mainly stomach-stuffers. Sashimi is restricted to salmon & albacore (though tuna is sometimes available), not too generously portioned, basically of regular buffet standards.
Highlights of the maki section: Spider rolls & spicy ebi, competently executed.
Shishamo's a safe bet here, addictively fried or acceptably grilled.
Shriveled salmon & mussels? Edible, but not exactly a happy sight.
Tempura's well-prepared though, crunchy-juicy & not crazy-oily.
Battered dishes dominate, from chikuwa to calamari, small shrimp to big ones.
Skip the tofu; it's pretty pointless. Note that Kikyo Jen is expected to boost this menu to a hundred items in June; prices will likely change accordingly.
The list goes on: chawanmushi, gyoza, yakitori, yakiniku, handrolls, ramen, udon & soba.
Ice cream saves the day (sorta): Black sesame, green tea & wasabi. In the end, it is what it is; let's avoid needlessly declaring that we'd rather spend xxx more ringgit & have the buffet at xxx Japanese restaurant instead.
A free flow of Coke & green tea is supplied; plus, for every four customers, a complimentary 150ml carafe of sake (remember to remind them).
