Taking over the spot which used to be another Japanese restaurant, Yuzen has expanded into the adjoining lot, thus space is never an issue here. In fact, there are several private rooms set up here for some cosy dining.
It’s always nice to start off a Japanese meal with some salad and sashimi. Depending on what’s freshest and available for the day, the chef can assemble a good assortment of sashimi, omakase-style.
The tub of sweet succulent fish and shell food I had was made up of glistening salmon, yellowtail, uni, shim ahi and decadent otoro. Prices go according to market rates but as a general guide: it’s RM110 for 7 types and RM80 for 5 types of sashimi.
The Tuna Tataki Avocado Salad at RM22 may be a bit steep, considering the petite portion. However it’s a plate of quality stuff – nicely seared tuna tatami paired with buttery-smooth avocado, sprinkled with juicy pomegranate and perked up with a special wasabi dressing and truffle oil.
I absolutely loved their Crabmeat Chawan Mushi and Seafood Chawan Mushi, both at RM10. The chunky crabmeat was really fresh and sweet but what blew me away was the silky smooth tasty egg custard of the chawan mushi. The Seafood version was equally good and these are items I will definitely order again.

I didn’t bother to try their other teppanyaki meats as according to the chef, those are pretty much the same in other Japanese restaurants.
If you like maki rolls and unagi, the Dragon Unagi Makimono can be fulfilling. At RM38, it’s a pretty decent portion.
Mochi Ice Cream (RM10) was a good way to end off a meal here. The thin stretchy mochi skin was smooth and delicate and encased the ice cream perfectly.
