Each time you dine at Ishin Japanese Restaurant; you will have a sense of having had a satisfying meal. This is due to the experience that Chefs has to serve their Japanese dishes to suit the demanding palate of its diners especially the current season produce of Japan.

Gyuniku Tataki Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

We had a chance to taste out; some of the speciality dishes at Ishin Japanese Restaurant recently. To start off our dinner; we ordered the Gyuniku Tataki. Using the premium sirloin cut, the beef is grilled to medium rare, sliced and served with grated radish/ fresh chillies, minced garlic and chopped scallions. You can mince on the soft texture of the beef which marries perfectly to the citrusy sauce that came with it.

Dobin Mushi – Tea Pot Clear Soup Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

One can't miss out having this Dobin Mushi – Tea Pot Clear Soup. It is a clear broth with a nice clean taste. We like how it was presented and how to get the maximum taste. You start off drinking the clear soup from the teacup as it is. This ensures that you taste out the natural flavour of the soup.

Then you can add a tinge of lime to it and it takes you to another level of taste. As you enjoy the soup, you can take off the teapot covers where you will find a prawn, shiitake mushroom and soft Taufoo which you can eat it.

Sashimi Moriawase - Chef Selection Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

A Japanese dinner isn't complete without an order of Sashimi. For tonight we ordered the Sashimi Moriawase - Chef Selection. One of the reasons why diners keep coming back to Ishin Japanese Restaurant is the sashimi offering for the freshness of the seafood. The clam was very nice with the chewy texture; while the flying fish was superb and the prawn with a bouncy texture that has you lingering for more.

Hokkaido King Crab with Duck Liver Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

Our next dish from the Teppanyaki menu is indeed an interesting offering which is the Hokkaido King Crab with Duck Liver. This dish called for the use of two exquisite ingredients namely Foie Gras and the Hokkaido King Crab. The duck liver is lightly teppan-fried which has a slight char on the outside and melt in the mouth texture on the inside and is served with meaty crab over butter, soy sauce and fried garlic for the extra flavour.

Tori Kaarage Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

For the deep fried dish, we ordered the Tori Kaarage. Unlike the Tori Kaarage which are served at other restaurants; at Ishin, each piece of chicken meat is crafted to have only a thin layer of meat; This makes eating this Kaarage a real delight as you can taste the crunchy and crispy combination all in one bite as compared with others which has a big chunks of meat.

Matsuzaka Wagyu Beef Stone Grill Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

The star of the night is our order of the Matsuzaka Wagyu Beef Stone Grill. This wagyu steak is cooked on a hot stone over an open flame. You got a choice of either having the staff to grill it and you can DIY. The premium Wagyu meat leaves up to its name and the marbling of the steak was nice and of course, you can experience not only the sound of the grill, the aroma and every bite of this melt in mouth texture and taste.

The dish comes with a sauce which is a concoction of miso and salt, but frankly, I love the lightly grill soft texture and its natural taste of this premium cut of Wagyu.

Yaki Udon Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

Finally, if you still have any stomach space left; you can order the Yaki Udon to fill up your space. The Yaki Udon is stir-fried with chicken and vegetables, topped with bonito flakes for extra flavour.

Mix Fruit Platter Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

After a hearty meal, we decided to have a refreshing order of Mix Fruits Platter to cleanse our palate.

Musang King Ice Cream Ishin Japanese Restaurant Old Klang Road

As we were ordering our dessert, the staff recommended us to try a not on the menu Musang King ice-cream; which as a fan of the king of Fruit; it was a no-brainer to order it. Taste wise was not too bad, but if they were Musang King flesh in it, it would have made it to my must-eat list.

Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant New Menu 2018 Old Klang Road Kuala Lumpur

Affordable Premium Quality Japanese Dishes - Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant @Old Klang Road.


It is a norm that quality seasonal Japanese food is very pricier; the price is due to the way the food arrives in Malaysia which is usually air-flown. Nowadays, we are a little bit luckier in that many Japanese restaurants has started to bring the seasonal ingredients to Malaysia for us to taste the fine quality of these items.

At Kimi Ya Japanese Restaurant which is located at G-2, Avantas Residences, 162 Jalan Klang Lama, Kuala Lumpur for the month of May is serving these delicacies to its customers which will not burn a hole in your wallet.


There are a number of seasonal fish that will be available at Kimi-Ya among them are the Leather Jacket, Scorpion Fish, Gurnard, Ren-Kodai, Isaki, King Crab and more.


Among my favourite for the upcoming promotion is the Kagoshima Wagyu (120 grams). These prized cuts are air flown in from Japan. Kimi-Ya Japanese Restaurant used to serving the Australian Wagyu Beef at its outlet but have now switched to serve the Japanese Wagyu for its patron to enjoy the quality, texture and taste which is much better although a little pricier.
