Umai-Ya Japanese Restaurant @ KLCC

We were loitering at KLCC after an event. We pass by Umai-Ya Japanese Restaurant and the facade looked inviting to us so we settled our late lunch here.

The interior looks casual but modern with traits of sleek urban design.

We opted to sit at the tatami seat facing the walkway of the mall. Backdropped with Japanese comic wall which add a youthful vibe to the setting.

Sam was presented with a set of kid’s cutlery before the ordering and this definitely a kind gesture.

Saba Shioyaki & Sashimi Moriawase (RM39.90)

The sashimi was decent, fresh and thick cut. The grilled saba was equally tantalizing, meaty and adequately seasoned.

Add on salad, rice, miso soup & fruit platter for a wholesome meal.

Katsu Curry Rice (RM26.90)

Generously inundated with thick and creamy Japanese curry studded with cubes of carrot and potato, my order of Katsu curry rice was a pretty satisfying portion. A big slab of breaded fried chicken was crunchy on the outer but the inner was a little too dry.

Children Set (RM16.90)

The petite portion was just nice for Sam, it consists of chicken karaage, maki roll, sushi, chawanmushi and drink.

Verdict: Price is on higher side and the food quality was just average in my book. There’s definitely a more affordable choice for Japanese food out there.
