I stumbled upon Sen Tsuru earlier this year when we were trying to find a Japanese Restaurant besides Okuchi around Kota Damansara. Located at Palm Spring, Kota Damansara, Sen Tsuru became one of our favorite Japanese Restaurants because of its Hand Rolls and Maki.
On our recent visit we were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant was offering an All-You-Can-Eat menu with over 80 items for just RM 36.90!
Due to the limited space the food was made to order, which ensured the quality of the food was consistent with the ala Carte Menu, something that is rarely seen in any Japanese Buffets in Malaysia even in places like Zippangu, Iketeru and others.
The Beef Teriyaki came in a small portion but was cooked medium. It wasn’t as tender as many top end restaurants but had a good flavor.
My favorite. The Chicken Teriyaki was grilled just right with the skin lightly crispy and the meat not overcooked. The Teriyaki Glaze was not too sweet either
I honestly have no idea what this was. It tasted like a flour batter of vegetables that are deep-fried. I don’t think this was Japanese but it tasted pretty good.
Salmon and Tuna Sashimi
I’ve been here quite a number of times and so far the Sashimi has always been fresh and thickly sliced.
Their Chawan Mushi is super smooth and soft. This is one of the best places I’ve had Chawan Mushi.
The Salmon pieces were deep fried which tasted a little dry and went with shredded cabbage. It had a really good dressing that tasted like Honey Mustard.
This is what we came to Sentsuru for. All their Handrolls are superb. The combination of Crispy Seaweed Wrap, Tempura Bits, Japanese Mayo and a good balance between rice and the filling of choice makes this the best Hand Rolls I’ve had.
California and Soft Shell Crab Maki
The Maki’s are also superb in Sentsuru. The California Maki was filled with Tempura Bits giving it a crispy texture and the Soft Shell Crab was just deep-fried before being rolled make it crispy. A key ingredient I feel was their Mayo which they just put the right amount of.
Ebi and Fish Fry
Although the prawns were not as fresh as GUU in Vancouver, the Ebi and Fish Fry here was still good. It was very crispy and went well with the Mayo and Tonkatsu sauce.
This is the best Unagi Sushi I've had since Hama in Toronto simply because the Unagi is actually grilled before being wrapped on rice.
The Salmon Tataki was lightly seared on the outside and had a nice smoky flavor most likely from the Salt. It was really good!
I forgot the name of this Sushi but it resembled and tasted exactly like Salmon Rose.
Sen Tsuru in my opinion offers the best Japanese Buffet in KL. Everything is cooked to order and most of the dishes are really good especially their Sushi, Sashimi and Hand Rolls. To top it off, at a price of RM 36.90 there is no place I've been to that can match Sen Tsuru for it's value!
