Munakata Unlimited Ala Carte Japanese Buffet @ Jalan Sultan Ismail


The bunch of us who love to eat, were tempted after reading Vkeong’s post on Munakata Unlimited Ala Carte Japanese Buffet. We decided a visit and made reservation. Glad that they placed us into a small cozy private room where we could relax and chit chat and laugh out loud inside. :P


Munakata Japanese buffet is the authentic Japanese food, which means they serve purely Japanese food on their buffet menu. The buffet is priced at RM 60 + 10% service charge for adult and Rm 45 + 10% service charge for children.

The steal


Salsom Sashimi – the one and only sashimi from the buffet menu. The sashimi was thick and fresh. This is definitely a great steal! And we had 27 servings (1 serving = 3 pieces) of sashimi alone. Yummm…

The yummy


Unagi Kabayaki – juicy fat grilled Unagi in their special sweet saya sauce


Gyu Saikoro Steak was tender and juicy. I can only drool over this


Sake Teriyaki – grilled salmon coated with sweet soya sauce


Kaki Furai – deep fried juicy Oysters.


Yakitori – barbecued skewered chicken


Enoki no Butter Yaki – the Enoki sautéed with butter = aromatic


Shira Ebi Karaage – deep fried Japanese Glass Shrimp. Gimme a glass of beer!~


Tori Tsukune Yaki – chicken meatballs


Soft Shell Crab tempura – deep fried battered soft shell crab


Hotate Butter Yaki – grilled fresh scallops with butter but they were over salty

The So-So


Umagi Tamago is the grilled eel wrapped in cooked egg. This is ok for me as I like sweetened tamago.


Tempura Moriawase – the batter was tooooooo thick and very oily. Batter was not that good but the prawns and veges were fresh


Nigiri Sushi (Salmon). The vinegar-ed rice was dry and not vinegar-ed enough but I love the salmon slices alone.


Furai Ika Ring – deep fried Squid Rings. The batter was thick and the squid rings were too chewy and rubbery.


Wakame Salad. This was okay for me but lack of dressing




Shishamo – Grilled Smelt Fish

The No-No…


Saba Shioyaki (grilled mackerel with salt) was made hard and dry. Age Shu Mai did not taste good too. As for the Ankake Age Dofu (deep fried bean curd with thick starchy sauce), it was unlike the age dofu we used to have from Rakuzen. Tori No Karagee (deep fried chicken) did not taste good. Finally, the desserts – matcha ice cream with Azuki red bean. @@ I nearly fainted after having a scoop. I have never tasted such a bad and as creamy as whipping cream matcha ice cream before. Thanks to citygal for help to finish that scoop of ice cream and washed down with lots of green tea.


Verdict: it is still a steal to have unlimited orders of fresh thick salmon sashimi with RM 60 ++. :)
