Kuriya (Japanese) @ BSC KL


This Kuriya in Bangsar Shopping Complex is part of the Kuriya chain of Japanese restaurants from Singapore under the RE&S group of companies. There are 7 restaurant concepts under their restaurant division- KURIYA DINING, KURIYA, ICHIBAN BOSHI, KUISHIN-BO, FIESTA, ICHIBAN SUSHI, KURIYA FISH MARKET & SOBAWORLD in Singapore. This outlet in BSC has just opened about 3 months ago and I did not knew about it until one of my friends asked me whether I would like to give it a try as he has not been there before too.

It's not a very big restaurant but cosy enough to have a decent number of tables, a sushi counter, tatami seating and also a private room which can house up to 12 pax. We sat at the sushi counter that day as it was only two of us and I've always like to see what goes on at the counter!



A very friendly staff came and greet us and asked us what we would like to have. My friend's answer was - "I'll leave it all to the chef" and then we proceed to ordering the sake. At first we wanted to order a small bottle of 300 ml sake which I deemed would be enough for both of us but after much persuasion from the lady, we ordered a 720ml bottle of Kubota Senyju. That was because we were drinking with the staff and the chefs and the 300ml bottle wouldn't be enough!


Unagi Tamago

We were served the Unagi Tamago (eel omelette) as an appetizer. This tamago is done differently from the normal tamago I've taken. It's warm and has a infused unagi sauce flavor which was very appetising and good! And right in the middle, you're find the gem hidden inside which is a very tasty slice of unagi.


Plate of Sashimi & Sea Urchin Roe (RM260)

The plate of sashimi we had consists of the salmon, salmon belly, scallops, the tai fish, prawns and another type of fish (which I cannot remember its name). The sashimi platter is the best dish to ascertain the quality of the Japanese restaurant as a good Jap place should serve fresh & tasty sashimi. And to taste the freshness of the raw slices, try eating it without the wasabi which could overwhelm the taste of the sashimi.



The Sea Urchin (uni) roe which is also called the ovaries of sea urchins came in a very nice pot filled with ice shavings in the bottom to keep the roe fresh. This is actually my first time having the uni and I must say that it tasted very good. There were sheets of seaweed and julienned cucumbers with sesame seeds that goes together with the uni.


Soup & Deep Fried Tai Fish Bones

After we have finished our sashimi platter, the chef would ask you whether you would like to have the prawn heads fried or made into soup. I preferred the soup style and so they made us both a bowl of prawn head soup with miso broth. It was very tasty. Then I was served with the deep fried fish bones and I was told to eat the fish head as it's the best. I did and I like it too! And that was the end of the dishes we had there.


Kubota Senyju (RM180)

Since I've tried the Kubota Manyju at Daikanyama the other time, this time I chose the bottle of Kubota Manjyu. Compared to its more expensive counterpart, this senyju is lighter and has a crisp finish with a delicate fragrance. Actually that 1 bottle wasn't really enough and we ordered another bottle of Kamotsuru Itteki Nyukon Jyunmai Ginjyo (RM180) since we have now more and more staff drinking with us. We end up having 2 staff and 3 chefs drinking together.

The executive head chef, Mr. Yamano is from Japan and it's his first time in Malaysia (also quite good looking!). The chef, Daniel is a Malaysian (from Ipoh, hehe... very young like me and cute too) is transfered from the Singapore Kuriya to help out here and the staff, especially Shelly is very helpful, cheerful and adorable. She's a fillipino from Sabah! Heheh... that's what I managed to find out during my meal there.

Overall, the service was very good and we had a good time there! The total bill came up to RM700++ for just the 2 of us. But of course the bulk goes to the Sake. Although they didn't serve us the way we wanted (a dish at a time rather than the whole sashimi platter in one shot), we were satisfied with the quality of food. Just tell them what you would like and they will accomodate.

The prices are very much like Rakuzen and the set lunch sets is very affordable with prices starting from RM28 where you get a Udon, Tempura with rice, Cawanmushi and fruits. The corkage charge is RM50/bottle and as for me, it's going to be ...(insert value)..!

Find Singaporean owned restaurants tend to be over priced.

MRAFJ: Haha.. ok

Yiling: Can! The sashimi is good.

Zewt: Without the sake, it'll be RM260 (before tax). we only had a platter of sashimi and sea urchin.

I love the concept of using the prawn heads and bones from the sashimi platter into another dish after you're done with it. Nice! :)
