Azuma (Japanese word of "east") is a Japanese restaurant in Queensbay Mall.

Azuma (Japanese word of "east") is a Japanese restaurant in Queensbay Mall. Although it has a kaiten (conveyor belt) in a section of the dining area, it caters for higher market segment than other Japanese restaurant in the likes of Sakae Sushi. Surprisingly, it is still priced competitively.

Right off the kaiten, we took a blue plate of Tamago Maki (egg rolled sushi) and red plate of Chuka Iidako (seasoned baby octopus). The latter is rather nice!

In addition, we also ordered a serving of Yaki Gyoza (pan-fried dumpling). It comes in 5 pieces. The minced meat inside has the right texture and works well with our tastebuds.

For more a filling treat, we ordered 2 bento sets: Steamed Salmon Bento and Unagi Bento. Each is served with Garlic Fried Rice, Miso Soup and some Fruit Slices. The latter set also comes with a cup of Chawanmushi and Mayo Salad.

The steamed salmon is just mediocre, but the unagi (eel) is really special. Somehow, the chef knows his trade and makes it so perfect to the mouth!

The garlic fried rice is reasonable, but I somehow prefer the one at Sakae Sushi.

While we were settling the bill, we were each served with a complimentary cup of Ice Cream.

All in all, Azuma is a great place to have a nice Japanese meal. The environment and hospitality is also welcoming. However, be wary of your financial capability, because an unimpeded appetite can snowball and cause serious damage to your wallet. Or your credit card as the case may be.

the last time i dined in Azuma was a year ago with the boyf, and i have never stepped in since then. mainly because its posh-looking facade that prevent me from going in, not without the companion of (working) adults. i am a poor student with limited pocket money, hallo? but LC told me that some of the dishes are actually quite reasonably-priced, so i thought of giving it a second chance hence, the birth of this post. it was really crowded on a Saturday night, so the staff asked us to leave our

apparently they have revamped the whole restaurant. i remembered it was really cramped with dark lighting last time. now, cubicle are brightly-lit beside the entrance, perfect for couple, but not so muchy for privacy since everyone who walks in can practically see what you all are doing.

Salmon Temaki | RM 3.80
salmon hand roll

i ordered this during my last visit, and i thought the salmon serving is really generous at only rm 3.80, slightly cheaper than Jusco’s. recommended it to LC, and she loves it too! one complain is that, the salmon slice was chewy and it’s hard to bite it off. so it got messy after the first bite and messier the following…

this beef fried rice is LC’s must-order whenever she dines in Azuma. i had a spoon and boy the rice was light and fluffy and fragrant! all grains were separated from each other plus generous slices of beef hidden underneath! and amazingly it’s fulfilling despite its small serving.

Anyway, after testing the first bite, the shell seems alright, just need few extra chewing I suppose, hehe. The shell is actually quite chewy with its unexpected solid filling of the crab meat. It is quite tangy and juicy at the same time too, and that makes me wonder am I really eating a crab of rather crabmeat fritters. Nonetheless, it is quite a pleasant experience too.

Miso SoupHowever, the miso soup served here is pretty much milder and on a lighter note. No doubt, some traces of miso paste is still visible, but when sipping it, the concentration of the fragrance somehow has reduced as compared to the usual treat served at any Japanese soup. It would be good if the soup could be thickened more a bit. Anyway, there are stil some accompanied sides that help spice up the dish like seaweed and also some cubes of bean curd too.

SaladSalad prepared in the Japanese style is another delectable joy to have. Unlike its Western counterparts that are more into creamy texture or light oily touch, the recipe prepared by The Land of The Rising Sun, usually is more light and refreshing. It usually comes with loads of finely sliced vegetables like cabbages, purple cabbage, carrot and some cherry tomatoes, before drenched with some inhouse dressing which comes with mild piquancy but zesty.

Salad prepared in the Japanese style is another delectable joy to have. Unlike its Western counterparts that are more into creamy texture or light oily touch, the recipe prepared by The Land of The Rising Sun, usually is more light and refreshing. It usually comes with loads of finely sliced vegetables like cabbages, purple cabbage, carrot and some cherry tomatoes, before drenched with some inhouse dressing which comes with mild piquancy but zesty. It seems like some vinegar have been added to it too. This paste prepared by Azuma is quite unique for it is rather coarsely blended with the secret ingredients but still able to bring up the overall flavor, with some addition of the miso.

Gyoza Another common snack of Japanese cuisine would be this Gyoza, a.k.a fried dumpling. This variety comes with a filling of minced chicken and vegetables. They are solid and chewy in texture, but somehow rather bland if not added with soya sauce. Dumpling skin is of acceptable thickness and not too oily. If some chopped parsley are added more into the filling, I think it would have been a better overall flavor.

Fried Seafood MakiShould your tummy has been drumming while waiting for the meal to arrive, you may help yourself with one of the place form the conveyer belt; Fried Seafood Maki. It is pretty unpredictable of what it contains in the inside for there is no specific menu being put on. Only after one bite did I realize that the maki is actually wrapping prawns and also octopus, alongside the cucumber, lettuce and seaweed wrap. It is quite tangy but not crispy as you might thought

ChawanmushiAs a hors d’ oeuvres, it certainly has done a great job in warming up the tummy. The egg is well beaten and steamed under controlled heat for a specific time thus creating a smooth and velvety layer. Bubbles are not visible thus reflects the skillful preparation of this appetizer. Coupled with slice of shitake and fishcake, makes it a good and light pre course

But of course, once awhile diverging from my usual epicurean compass might be a good thing too- get to explore more stuff!

And so, my friend brought me to this chic restaurant to have some grasp of the cuisine. The moment you walk in, you would be greeted amiably by its helpful staff that directs you to a comfy couch. From here you have sip of some hot green tea before the food is being served. While waiting for your orders to arrive, you may choose from the sushi conveyor belt to pick some of your favourite sushi, while enjoying the cozy ambiance.

Azuma Japanese Restaurant is one of the awaking Japanese Restaurant located in Queensbay Mall had captured a lot of blogger to taste and review. The restaurant it self is located on the South Court of the mall is located at the 2nd floor beside Harvey Norman.The beef teriyaki is a bit disappointment as the beef is a bit overcooked. Perhaps for those who love beef, it should be nice with 40% cooked. The taste is nice but is a pity is overcooked and the portion is quite big to be served
