For starters we ordered the house salad with dressing on the side to share. It was quite a big bowl especially since it is meant for one person and luckily we asked for the dressing to come seperately. I am not entirely sure what the mix was but there is definitely a hint of wasabi in it, perhaps even too much because the kick was rather strong. which personally I like though I can't say the same for my friend.

To share we both ordered the grilled salmon head with salt. Neither of us were fans of teriyaki sauce so we opted the other option instead and honestly it was a good thing. The fish was fragrant from the grill and just nicely seasoned as the saltiness brings out the fish's natural sweetness. For a person to finish this on their own would probably take a little bit of a challenge but it was jsut enough for two adequately sized apetite girls.

One night, after spending the day out with my friends just getting reacquainted once again, we found a nice place to just chill for dinner. We had a pretty late lunch so when it was time for dinner all of us were just too full to have an actual meal. So we decided to try some Yakitori instead and since we were nearby, Koyaku was our first choice.

It was pretty crowded and busy when we arrived - no surprise since it was a Saturday and also right when it was the dinner rush. However our server was very attentive and polite which really put us in a good mood. The dining style at Koyaku was really pleasant as you have the option of dining casual style or have something more fancy off the menu.

For starters, we were each offered this deep fried shrim head with some Japanese mayo to nibble on. This was complimentary and I am not sure if it changes on the daily, however I do like this little offer before the food you ordered arrives.

What I had ordered that night was several sticks of Yakitori which is grilled foods. First, I got some shishito peppers because it's really good and also quite expensive to buy at Isetan so I order it whenever I see it on the menu. Unfortunately that night they were compeltely out of that so I was left with my other orders only.

Instead I got the grilled sliced steak wrapped enoki mushrooms and squids (tentacles & body separately.) Both of these tasted really good, nicely smoky from the grill and also the teriyaki sauce that it was lathered with.

However my beef slices were more well done than I would have liked. It was dry and hard which was quite a struggle to chew so that wasn't the best of the night. However I liked the squids so much that I ordered another two servings of it after I was done with my first round.

The ambience of the place was borderline casual but also fine dining almost. Imagine a very quirky but calm izakaya, which was what this restaurant reminded me of. If I am around the area then I would most definitely pay a visit again.

Koyaku offers different dining areas to the customers, not only inside seating but you can also eat outside if you prefer.

If you coming alone, you can sit at the sushi bar to enjoy your alone time with your meals.If you come in a big group and would like some privacy, you can also book their small little rooms.

They have total three private rooms available.

Koyaku not only has different ala-carte menus, they also offers a special Omakase dining experience to the customer.

Omakase is a kind Japanese dining which you let the chef to tailor made your meal of that day.

The chef will prepare the special meal according to what he thinks is the best to serve on that day, what are the freshest ingredients, and also based on your personal taste preference, your budget and so on.

I was really blessed to have my first Omakase menu with Koyaku on that day!

The Omakase menu is all served on a plate like this; with three kinds of seaweed, shredded radish, 2 types of wasabi, and gari (ginger) in the middle.

Kisami Wasabi is the one on the right, which is the chopped wasabi; while the Dama Wasabi on the left is the minced type, which we usually have it in other Japanese restaurants.

I personally like the Kisami as I think it is less spicy as the minced one.

Shimaji looks a bit similar like Kampachi.

Yet, it is three times more expensive than Kampachi, also the meat is much more firm and oily than Kampachi.

The Omakase ended with Kyoho Grape.

So fresh! So sweet! It also has a kind of red wine taste!I was truly impressed with everything in Koyaku, not only their super quality food, but also the atmosphere they represented.

It is surely a very worth trial authentic Japanese restaurant for the Japanese cuisine lovers, right from the ambiance to the food!

I actually went back to Koyaku the next few days with my parents to try their Ala-Carte menu of Shake Atama Nabe, and Shima Aji Atama Nabe.

Glad that they both also like the food there, and my dad even said no doubt that they served very fresh food here!Koyaku Japanese Dining & Grill

I was instantly mesmerized by the interior of Koyaku. The decor at Koyaku was creative & eco-friendly- most of the decor are crafted using recycled materials such as recycled cardboard boxes from Japan, old fans, old toys which incorporate a modern, funky Japanese vibes without loosing its traditional aesthetic value.

Another highlight of Koyaku: life-size Astro Boy action figure! Customers can even make their own Umeshu (Japan liqueur made out of ume) here at Koyaku!Seasonal Japanese fresh produce here at Koyaku!

Besides the ala-carte menu, Koyaku offers customers a special Omakase dining experience. I was really fortunate to be able to try out Koyaku's Omakase menu. Omakase is a Japanese phrase that means "I'll leave it to you".

Here's an explanation of Omakase dining from Wikipedia!

The expression is used at sushi restaurants to leave the selection to the chef. It differs from ordering à la carte.The chef will generally present a series of plates, beginning with the lightest fare and proceeding to the heaviest, richest dishes. The phrase is not exclusive to service of raw fish with rice, and can incorporate grilling, simmering, or other cooking techniques as well. The term omakase is not restricted to flesh, nor to sequential banquets. It can be used generally to mean any selection of dishes prepared at the chef's discretion comprising a meal, including strict vegan.
Koyaku's talented chef will tailor your meal according to your personal taste preference, dietary preferences, your budget & the season. Omakase dining offers the chef the choice of what to serve you based on what he feels best represents his skills, while using the freshest fish that is available today. You'll be surprised by the chef's innovative and creativity in producing the best dish to the table.

Pricing for Omakase menu starts from RM150, depending on the type of dish served. The pricing is decided beforehand based on the customers' preferences.

Kyoho Grape

We were really lucky as Kyoho grapes were in season! This is by far the best grapes I've ever tasted- sweet, plump, juicy with a wonderful red wine taste.

I was really impressed by the quality & freshness of food served at Koyaku. Everything was simply fantastic! The sushi chef was friendly and informative- explaining to us about the dishes served, teaching us ways to enjoy our food the same way the Japanese do.

Anticipation and excitement prevails as the experienced sushi chef prepare the next dish right before our eyes. We "ooohhh" & "aaah" in awe watching the chef in action. It was really exciting, guessing what dish will be served next. We didn't know what to expect but every dish far exceeds my expectation!

Prior reservation is compulsory for the Omakase menu. Do make your reservations early to avoid disappointment!

Let's talk about the food part. Hold on your saliva first ya... If you love Japanese food, you should try Chef Special Sashimi (Market price). The chef served us with fresh White Tuna, Salmon, Maguro, Hamachi and Botan Ebi. I impressed with the chef as they not only skillful in preparing the food but they ensure the food is fresh, clean and good food presentation.

Don't be so greedy dip your your salmon into the Wasabi as the paste really spicy. I was chocked by the Wasabi but I still like the Wasabi.
I have some useful tips to share with you : When you eat Sashimi, start with white color Sashimi (White Tuna, Hamachi) as the taste is light. Follow by the red color Sashimi as the taste is strong. The Sashimi is so juicy and highly recommend.

The next dish is Inaniwa Udon (you either can choose to serve in hot or cold) (RM 23). I will prefer to serve in cold. The Udon noodle is so smooth and taste good with the sauce. According to Ms. Chen, the Udon noodle is handmade by chef and it does not have any preservative. A simple preparation yet healthy food. Ms. Chen shows us how to mix the mashed ginger and spring onion into the sauce. Then dip the Udon into the sauce and it ready to eat.
