One day, when our lives are back to normal, after the Movement Restriction Order is lifted and Covid-19 has subsided, I will go back to Kurata Japanese Fine Dining for another sumptuous oh-so-affordable meal. Kurata is located beyond Chatz Brasserie in Parkroyal Hotel Kuala Lumpur. You have to walk through Chatz and you’ll see Kurata at the far end.
Kurata offers one of the best deals in town as far as Eat-All-You-Can meal is concerned. Just take a look at these prices…
For dinner, Kurata Japanese Fine Dining offers 2 options of Shabu-shabu and Sukiyaki buffet:
*Australian Beef + Chicken: RM88++ per person
Angus Beef + Chicken: RM128++ per person
Spicy Miso Hotpot-Chicken Sukiyaki: RM68++ per person
*There was a Facebook Promotion when we dined there in February 2020 where diners get to pay only RM68++ per person when they book their table via Facebook and to show the promotion poster (on Facebook) before paying their bill to get the discount. Not sure if this offer is still in place after the MCO – please check for updates on their Facebook Page.
At the above prices, besides the shabu-shabu and sukiyaki, you get to order dishes listed in their special menu. Yes, it’s eat-all-you-can, so you can order as many portions as you like (but make sure you eat it all up!). The special menu offers a huge selection of Japanese favourites, ranging from Appetisers, Salads, Deep-fried items, Grilled items, Nigiri Sushi, Maki & Hand Rolls, Rice, Noodles and Desserts.
These were what we ordered and it wasn’t even half of what’s listed on the menu! Everything was prepared and cooked only upon order. We absolutely loved the grilled fishes (saury, sanma & shishamo). Their sashimi options were simple but fresh. Nigiri sushi and handrolls were good too.
We don’t usually order noodles at a buffet but we’re glad we ordered the Okinawa Squid Yakisoba – it’s quite the bomb! Our other favourites are the Grilled Eggplant with Sweet Miso Paste, Squid & Cabbage Spicy Japanese Omelette, Nanban Fried Chicken and Kaarage Pepper Chicken Wings.
For lunch, Kurata Japanese Fine Dining offers 2 options for Shabu-shabu and Sukiyaki lunch buffet:
Australian Beef + Chicken (RM38++ per person) and
Chicken Sukiyaki & Spicy Miso Hotpot (RM38++ per person)
Meats such as Chicken and Australian beef are refillable. However, sashimi and side dishes are not available for lunch.
Lunch: 12pm to 2:30pm.
Dinner: 5.30pm to 11.00pm
