Tenmaya, Nexus Bangsar South

Friday, January 02, 2015

My sis couldn't stop raving about this new Japanese restaurant, Tenmaya which opened its doors recently at Nexus Bangsar South. WL & I decided to give it a try on New Year's Eve dinner. Surprisingly, the premise is rather small & houses barely 20 tables. I love the fact the restaurant ain't too crowded, a perfect setting for the both of us to enjoy our meals in peace.

We were careful to not order too much as I was told the food portion is rather huge. Indeed, I wasn't fooled at all when the waiter served our soft-shell crab salad, which is a staple in Japanese restaurants. And oh boy, the salad is fantastically good with lots of crab meat.

Next on our order list is a salmon temaki, arranged neatly in 4 rolls. Another sumptuous treat with every bite. Just so good...

WL couldn't live without ordering his all-time favourite, tori katsudon. The portion is huge & so worth it for the price of around RM20+. And it tasted lovely too.

I, on the other hand, wanted to try something more unique. I called for a mushroom dish with truffle oil & it definitely didn't disappoint. It has all the different types of mushrooms - shimeji, bunapi & so on.

It was a very, very fulfilling dinner because both of us were so stuffed, we could barely stand up & make for the exit. I strongly recommend this restaurant for a satisfying Japanese food experience. Rating of 4 out of 5.
