Martin Kary Salt Cave Japanese Restaurant @ Solaris Mont Kiara

A Japanese restaurant in a man-made salt cave: Martin Kary might be worth a stop for novelty hunters, if the thought of savouring sashimi while surrounded by rocky saline walls sounds fun. The centrepiece of this venue is teppanyaki - pan-fried smoked duck with mixed vegetables (RM22) fares well, with each citrus-balanced slice of meat turning out very tender. 

 The menu runs the gamut of Japanese cuisine, from yakitori (skewers of squid tentacles, chicken liver & quail eggs, RM5-RM6 each) to sushi (an aburi seared set of salmon, tuna, yellowtail & prawn clocks in at RM24) to tempura, donburi, soba & udon. Salt therapy rooms are under construction upstairs, but if you're planning  a visit to Martin Kary, it may be cost-effective to head here soon - there's a 30 percent opening discount off all food through the end of June.

  2. Very unique. The 30% discount is very attractive. I would be tempted to rub my finger (discreetly of course) on the wall and have a taste to check if it's really salt hah..hah..

  3. Gee!!! Is that real salt? Does it have any special effect on the food or the air at the place or anything? Looks like inside an igloo. :D

  5. That's an odd place to put the exhaust fan in between the cook and the hot plate...wouldn't it be a hindrance to the chef? Since this is a "salt cave", I wonder if we'd see some salt baked dishes...haha! :D

    1. Contact.ewew: i have a suspicion that maybe some of the furnishing here was left over from the previous outlet that occupied this lot ... maybe it was a korean joint! ;) salt-baked dishes would actually be a brilliant addition! not on the menu so far though :)
