If you happen to shop or work at Wisma Atria and planning to have your lunch there, I’m sure you would have bumped into this cosy Japanese restaurant with a local name and even if you are planning to visit this place, you will know there is ALWAYS a long queue during the meal service. Who else doesn't know about Koh Grill & Sushi Bar? And yes if you’ve not been to this place, I’m sure you might have heard much about it.
Like any others, I’m also queuing up and looking forward to try it out. Most likely you might have to share tables with other people and I would strongly suggest to go in a smaller group as in order to get a huge table for that many people, you would have to endure the yummy land wonderful smell and visuals of the food served.
The service might not be top notch mind you as you see the poor staffs walking from table to table, taking orders, serve and not many chances for them to top up your tea while you eagerly wait for your food! I tell myself, it will be worth waiting!
They have a huge selection of food and I do not have any idea what are their famous dishes except this, Shiok Maki, 'Shiok' is commonly used in Malaysia & Singapore and it means a great pleasure of enjoyment and happiness. You can see this dish on every single table and I’m sure you know why! It’s maki wrapped with salmon with a slice of grilled unagi on top of it. Then a generous amount of mayonnaise, torched, and topped with a shower of roe! Pure heaven I would say as it comes with a fireworks of flavours and textures as you engulf the whole piece of maki into your watering mouth.
What would you try when you’re in a Japanese restaurant? Of course their sashimi and their Moriawase is highly recommended too as you will love the thick cut of sashimi and savour sweetness of the fresh fish and shrimp. Their grilled items are fantastic too! If you're a fan of grilled stuffs, you can try out the juicy cuttlefish which has been grilled to a good level of tenderness and a layer of teriyaki sauce to enhance the wonderful aroma of this dish.
We tried some other items like the grilled shiitake mushrooms which is wonderful, the fried salmon skin, not I would recommend as its not crispy at all. you can save some money on that for maybe a plate of seafood fried rice which is gorgeous and if you do have some spare, you can try out the many tempting dishes in the menu.
Do share with me your favourites at Koh Grill & Sushi Bar and let me know if you like it! :)
