Keshia wanted to celebrate her birthday with a Japanese dinner at Nishiki. I remember seeing a Japanese restaurant in City Mall a while back. I convinced her to try this new Japanese venue and she was happy as long as it is Japanese. So here we are in Hana at City Mall. Very easy to find as it is right across from Big Apple Donuts and Old Town Kopitiam.
We ordered a dish of sushi first before everything else and decided we were better off in Nishiki as far as raw seafood was concerned. So we went for the sets and cooked dishes and was pleasantly surprised as we found the food to be pretty good. Service was fast and efficient even with a near full house.
Ebi (prawn) tempura @RM18. Very fresh prawns with a thin, light and crisp batter. A winner.
I enjoyed the Yasai (veggie) tempura @RM1o very much.
Especially this fresh shiitaki tempura.
The birthday girl's choice. Chicken teriyaki set @RM16.
Unagi set @Rm 28.
This Amiyaki Gyu Don@RM18 is voted the set of the night. There were about 5 pieces of reasonably sized slivers of beef. Grilled lightly with a most inviting smoky scent and according to Bryan, the owner of this winning dish, very tender and tasty but he never offer to share...*sigh*
We had a beef teriyaki @RM20 and saba steak @RM19 too. And some side dishes from the 'Train', yes, they have the self service tram too. I don't remember why I didn't take any pictures of these dishes...most probably distracted by the Gyu Don and also the speed the food was devoured didn't leave any room for focusing.
All the sets came with the usual pickles, chawan mushi and miso soup.
The dinner ended on a sweet note with this complimentary dessert.
I wouldn't mind coming back here again when we want some simple Japanese dishes. Will try their noodle dishes the next time.
If you are not a sashimi fan, this would be a great Japanese joint.
