Jaya One was abound with excitement last week when Yama & J had a soft opening. Colorful balloons were strung across the entrance and stairs leading up to the upper level (just above Starbucks) where the bar restaurant is located.
With more than 27 years of Japanese culinary experience, mainly in the USA, Chef Yama brings forth and shares his expertise in sushi. His expertise lies in the creation of special sauces that are paired with his sushis. The secret of his interpretation of “fusion” lies in his creative sauces, which he perfected in the years he spent learning from many master chefs in America, particularly from New York.
This post is more or less dubbed as “Sushi Porn” as you feast your eyes on the colorful sashimi and sushi creations by Chef Yama, drizzled with all his signature sauces. Be warned: this post is super-heavy with photos!

The bar restaurant features a disco ball with rotating pulsating lights… something that will please the young and young-at-heart, I’m sure!
Lunch buffet is available at RM48 per pax. You can also opt to order from their A La Carte menu and there are some special lunch sets available too.

Seldom can see fresh scallop sashimi in a Japanese buffet!
Yeah, the spread is quite extensive.
So difficult to call & reserve!
I think they must be very busy, coping with the crowds! Try again!
Went there with my colleagues on 31st May 2013 for their lunch buffet. 6 out of 8 got food positioning (vomiting, purging & fever) and still under recovering stage. Food is contaminated and not fresh especially the raw food.
Oh dear, I hope you all have recovered now!
This restaurant is suck,i was wonder why this kind of restaurant will appear in livingsocial website?1st i wan to say is the food,it is a japanese buffet restaurant,how come i cant get any sushi i like?the price is RM88,if the restaurant with the price like this should got many choice,but how come even i wan to order a simple califonia roll also don have?this also nvm,the sahsimi,i just wan to eat a normal plain sahsimi,but i don understand why the cheif must put 4 to 5 type of sauce at the sahsimi,this is really spoil the taste of sahsimi,unless they use the stale sahsimi,then use the sause to cover the bad taste.And the menu also,just a nomal item but the price pulled up until 40 to 50%,the food is really not worth with the expensive price,this can say is cheating the consumer.The last thisng is the enviroment,i also dunno i enter a pub or restaurant,the light is so dark until i can clearly to see my food.Everything is just pull up the price until so expensive then cheat people say got 50% discount deal at livingsocial,actually we don get the value of 50% discount,we just get what we pay and worst!!!
buffet for diner or lunch?
