Sushi Zento, Sri Petaling

When you are in Sri Petaling, one of the restaurant with the most outstanding design will be Sushi Zento. You just will not miss from not noticing it. Either exterior or the interior design, you know the owner has splash a lot of money in this restaurant.
 To those who prefer to dine from the sushi belt will be placed at their ground floor while others will be at their first floor. To my surprise that an extravaganza kind of renovation, they did not charge 6% GST but they do charge 10% service charge. Kind of weird.
Edamame @RM7.00++ - Can never go wrong with their Edamame especially a high class looking restaurant like this.
Chawanmushi @RM7.00++ - Smooth and succulent texture just what I want it to be.
Ninniku Yaki Meshi @RM7.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is a common garlic fried rice. It is not that bad at all even though it did taste a little salty but it is still an acceptable one for me.


Kunsei Kamo Maki @RM25.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Sushi roll with smoked duck on top. The combination is so wonderful especially the smoked duck is well done without any gamey taste on it. Chewy meat with a smokey flavor just what I want it to be like. Definitely must order.


Zaru Soumen @RM16.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 3/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - The sauce was fine but the main problem was the somen itself. It sticks together so bad which makes me taste some part is hard and some part is normal. Doesn't really enjoy it much.


Ika Geso Teriyaki @RM9.00++
Outlook: 2/5
Creativity: 3/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5 
Overall: 3/5 - This octopus legs are not bad at all. You can taste the hint of BBQ taste and a little saltiness from the teriyaki sauce. The best part is the octopus is fresh enough for you to enjoy the tangibleness in your mouth. Something you can chew a little longer for the BBQ taste roam around your mouth before you swallow it. 


Wakadori Wasabi Butter-Yaki @RM22.00++
Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Another must order dish. It is a chicken breast which has been grilled and soaked in their homemade butter wasabi gravy. The tender chicken breast with buttery taste and the wasabi is the most important part of the taste here. It does not really give you the spicy feeling but it is enough to entice your taste bud with it to make the whole dish to be divinely tasty.

Overall: 3/5 - I will only order grilled pork in a Korean restaurant but I am not sure why I decided to make an exception this time to try the Japanese style. It turns out to be surprisingly delicious! It does looks like a little over grilled, the taste was fine overall. I love it and you should order this too!

Honjitsu No Tokusei Sashimi Moraiwase @RM221.00++
Outlook: 4/5
Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 2/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is their chef's recommendation of sashimi moriawase with 9 kinds with 3 pieces each. This is the first Japanese restaurant that serves the sashimi the last after we have finished all the food above. Extremely slow enough almost making me to cancel it which I was regretted for not doing so. All the fishes sashimi were fine and even the sea urchin too but unfortunately the prawn and clam were horrible. They are hardly fresh! They just spoiled the whole appetite that you had for the whole dinner. It is unbelievable for such a restaurant unable to provide fresh seafood.

Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - I have to order this 3 times to get it. The service was really really bad. Anyway, the ice cream is not bad but it is not a must order. I ordered it just for my god daughter. Basically, she finished all of it by herself.

I can see that they have been investing a lot of money in this restaurant however they failed at 2 vital part in a high class Japanese Restaurant. First, serving not fresh prawn and clam in their sashimi moriawase. Second, the service is really poor. No one attend to us no matter how we wave to them. There is no call bell and there is no one assigned to watch over us or to attend to the row of tables around us. I have been ordering the cheese ice cream for 3 times and they finally able to lock in the order in their system at the third time. The whole service management is just havoc and it is going to ruin their business sooner or later! Overall, I do not think they are worth for a revisit if they did not improve their mistakes.
