We ate here many times while staying at the Equatorial. The weekend buffets were great value. It's difficult to understand why the hotel closed its best attraction.

Absolutely amazing food. Best sashimi I've ever had. Staff are professional and very well informed and trained. They carry their own brand of soy sauce with stand and low sodium. Wasabi is off the charts. Look to spend more than rm250 for 2 people. Expensive...More

Tried both ala carte and buffet before, both were equally disappointing. Sashimi was cut the way it was not supposed to cut, the fish was not even fresh to begin with. Toriyaki was too dry it was like chewing a really overcooked piece of beef...More

We had sushi of the chef's choice and green tea soba. The sushi wasn't very fresh, and the rice is too damp and sticky. Presentation is also messy. Soba was okay. Overall the food is acceptable but not awesome.
