RM29.90++ Japanese buffet at Kikyo

  • Sharebar

Kikyo Japanese Restaurant has been around for quite some time in Puchong, but I only discovered it about a few months ago, when I was there for my niece-in-law’s birthday. Fast forward a few months, I passed by the place again and saw the promotion they’re having, which is RM29.90++ for buffet dinner. I, in fact went there with Saucer and mother-in-law during lunch, and found out that the buffet was also available for lunch during weekends! Wonderful.

Love at First Bite!

The buffet was actually more like ‘all-you-can-eat’, whereby you can order as much as you want from the 60 choices on the menu. There was no buffet spread whatsoever, so they will only prepare what you want after your order.

Of course, as with any Japanese buffet, we could not miss out on ordering sashimi, or raw fish! Lucky for us, the Salmon Sashimi we had that day was fresh! The meat was firm instead of squishy, the colour was vibrantly orange! We also had a few servings of the Shiro Maguro Sashimi or Tuna Sashimi, which was above average too.

The Ebi Fried was pretty good when it’s eaten hot, but let it sit for a while and it became cold and hard. Must consume while it’s hot.

Edamame – Saucer’s all-time favourite.

The Chawan Mushi here came in a pretty generous serving! Hidden beneath, I could find a piece of mushroom, a slice of carrot and some minced pork. Most importantly, the egg custard was so soft and smooth that I couldn’t help myself from ordering two!

Comparing to the Salmon Sashimi, I thought the Salmon Teriyaki was a notch below in terms of freshness. The teriyaki sauce was pretty good and sweet but the meat was slightly squishy, giving the impression that it’s not that fresh.

The tempura was nothing to shout about. Again, fried stuff should always be eaten when it’s served to ensure its ultimate crispiness. I thought the prawns were quite fresh, but the batter was just a tad too thick.

Now, as for our favourite order of all – Unagi! This was grilled with sweet sauce and was difficult to resist. Among the 3 adults and 2 kids that we were, I think we ordered easily 20 servings of this! *gasp*

If you prefer to eat Salmon with rice, you could opt for Salmon Sushi instead. But a note of warning, the lump of rice attached to it was huge! It would definitely lead you to a fast track to being full.

Salmon Sushi

The Tobiko Sushi is another recommended item, which was generously filled to the brim with eggs!

If you’re not a fan of raw fish, there are also a few other choices of cooked fish to choose from such as the Saba, Shake and Shishamo. All of these are extremely good sources of protein!

Last but not least, dessert! The only dessert they provide for the buffet is in the form of ice-creams. I particularly liked the Green Tea (Macha) and Black Sesame (Goma) flavours. And guess what? They even have Wasabi Ice-cream! So weird right? But my mother-in-law seemed to enjoy it. I think it was a mixture of wasabi in vanilla ice-cream. Interesting combination indeed.

Overall, I would say that the buffet at Kikyo was a good value for money, considering the amount of sashimi and unagi that you could order and eat! Surely there are the good and the not-so-good picks, but in average, I’d say it’s well worth the money paid. Give it a try to find out!

      Hi,
      This place doesn’t serve pork but it sells beer, so it is not technically ‘Halal’. However, they do have Malay staff in the kitchen and the food is pork-free. :)

    Disappointed at the lady boss service and the food portion and quality!!!Today my parents and I were having a buffet dinner at tis place. We ordered some food but the portion was uneven. Ordered 2 teriyaki salmon which it serves 2 small and thin slices of teriyaki salmon. At that time we thought ok, this is the portion which this restaurant serves. Later on we ordered another 2 plates of shisamo. In the end, it serves like 12 shisamo in 2 plates. That is alot. We tried to finish it and ordered some sushi but the sushi was too sour. We end up put aside the sushi rice. When the time we want to bill, the lady boss told us not to waste food (which is the sushi rice only) and she told us better to go have buffet at other places. She told us not to visit again. I was stun at that time and try to explain to her but it end up she chase me out of her restaurant and said they will only do business with return customer but not new comers. This kind of service still exist in Malaysia? Kikyo, do you really think you are the only japanese buffet restaurant in Malaysia? This is my first and last visit at this place. Last but not least, to all people or new comers if you really want to try or likes to eat at kikyo please go ahead(which I’m not really recommend), I’m not forcing you all not to go. For return customers, if you feel that I’m wrong, please continue to dine in at there and I hope you all won’t get the same bad service as me. If you feel the same thing as me, I recommend you to have your dinner buffet at Maiu Japanese Restaurant which located at Petaling Jaya. At least the service is good(at least they won’t chase you out), quality of food(sushi rice) won’t that sour.

      That is a really horrible experience! I feel so sorry that you were treated that way by the staff. That’s the thing with restaurants, high quality service is usually hard to maintain. I certainly hope there are not many cases like you who got chased out of the restaurant!
