After a good long round at the batting cages, my friends and I were exhausted on top of starving for something to eat. Since we were already on that side of One Utama so it's to no surpise that our first choice happens to be Sushi Zanmai. It was a very early dinner so that explains why there was no line to dine there, though the interior was already quite full which meant the staffs were a little busy.

It was a very early dinner so that explains why there was no line to dine there, though the interior was already quite full which meant the staffs were a little busy. Took a while to get the waiter's attention and also took some time for most of our food to arrive. As always my first choice to eat is definitely their sushi rather than any of their bento or ramen sets. Funnily enough my order all came in a single plate which is weird but also good in a way because this takes up less of the table space.
A thing I like to do is order off the menu because it is my personal belief that this means the sushi is made to order rather than those on the conveyor belt which I assume has been there for a while already.
While I really liked this, here's something that I find wrong with this. The seawed was damp and soggy that had me wondering how long has this been sitting around before it was served to me. The Ikura was scarce and also in the picture on the menu, it's supposed to come with cucumber slices to give a hint of freshness so the flavour of the roe isn't too overpowering which you can see did not come with mine.
Sushi Zanmai had always been a favourite place for me to go to for a good Japanese food fix, especially since their prices are not too exurbent. However I do feel like some of the standards have dropped significantly which is kind of disappointing. At least to me.
So I am happy to say that this pleased me greatly and I enjoyed every bite of my grilled Saba fish with some lemon juice.
