Takuya Japanese Restaurant

Our first visit to this new Japanese restaurant in Sg Chua:-
The set with salmon sashimi and stir fried beef (RM22). Came with salad, miso soup, cold tofu and chawan mushi. All were decent but not particularly outstanding.
Ros had the set with tempura prawns and unagi (RM28) with the same side dishes. Unagi was good but tempura was oily and the oil has a certain smell (overused oil?).

We also tried the a Spider Maki (RM22) which is a crispy fried soft shell crab roll with avocado slices. The soft shell crab was crispy but the roll was not well made, causing it to break up when picked up. Overall, it was pretty average.

They had some sad piano music playing when we got there and it depressed me to the point that I had to ask them to change the music. Not the right music for a Japanese restaurant.Overall the food and experience was pretty average. They won't beat Koya in Bandar Mahkota for the crown for best Japanese restaurant in the Kajang area.

  1. Heya

    Nice read. I will try Cibiuk, thank you. In return I have a few suggestions that you may want to try out:

    1. Miyagi at Taman Kajang Prima for the Japanese food crown for 2013

    2. Willy Satay at Taman Ramal Junction for the best satay in Kajang! Serious!

    3. I am a fan of Arabic food too but the little cafeteria in Kajang that housed 'Half Moon' has closed down. Fortunately there is an outlet near South City Plaza should you want to check out its famed Grilled Chicken;


  2. Thanks for the feedback MHA.
    1. We have tried Miyagi, both at the original outlet at Bandar Baru Bangi and also the new outlet at Kajang Prima. We still prefer Koya at Bandar Mahkota, but that one is non-halal.
    2. Have tried Willy Satay too and it's definitely in contention for the Best Kajang Satay in our next shoot-out.
    3. We've been trying several Arabian restaurants recently in Kajang. Look out for upcoming posts.


  3. Hey Jon. love your food recommendation.
    It is perfectly you add the GPS coordinate.......

    Then we no need to search around in Google to locate it.

    Many thanks

    1. Thanks for your note. I used to have a GPS but have given it up for Waze these days. But noted on the GPS location for obscure locations and will try to include when possible. Cheers.

  4. This restaurant is closed
