I was stumbled upon this Japanese restaurant Facebook page few days ago when I was browsing through my feeds and the words Japanese A La Carte Buffet at RM69 NETT caught my utmost attention. Yes, i was really hungry at that point and who can resist the thought of unlimited order of all the fresh sashimi without the need to worry about the bill. I always in the look out for A La Carte Buffet as i personally prefer food to be served upon order to ensure they are fresh and warm when i consume.
Before i know it , my fingers automatically dialing their phone number as advertised to make a reservation for the coming Saturday. I was worried if it may be fully booked and i have to suffer my crave for another week but boy i was lucky! Or maybe their recent buffet launch still not known by too many yet. So I went for it last Saturday night wearing one of my most comfortable outfit as i know i will be adding inches to the waist and it was the best decision ever!
This branch of the restaurant (currently the only branch that offers buffet) is located at Dataran Cascades Kota Damansara. If you are following Google Maps, please make sure that you select the correct one or you will end up being leaded to Sri Hartamas instead (like me) fml.

Service was okay and staff were helpful. Do expect some waiting time if the restaurant is running full capacity. Our orders came pretty fast for the first hour as we reached there before 7pm and it got slower when the crowd came.
I was not able to try everything on the menu but i definitely will be going back again. If only dessert can be added in the menu then it would be perfect *hopeful*. Maiu used to be my only option whenever i want to go for Japanese Ala Carte Buffet and i personally do not prefer Mitasu after one visit. I am glad that i found my new favourite place for Japanese A La Carte Buffet and i hope they will make this permanent.
