Makishima Japanese Restaurant is located at level 2 of Sheraton Imperial hotel and just opened for 3 months. We had a gastronomic enjoyment indulge ourselves with Japanese Buffet spread on this Saturday evening. Greeted with welcome by Tama Makishima, the General Manager of this restaurant. She is a petite lady and very friendly introducing us around on their buffet menu. The buffet spread is small, but the quality of the food wins it all. Here it not about the quantity that counts, its all about the premium quality of food that we are getting while dining in a very relaxed atmosphere.
The buffet is only available on every Saturday and they just started in the month of August. During weekdays, they have ala carte menu and some bento set choices which are quite valuable.We are seated at the corner end where we can actually have the window view outside and Makishima is conveniently located just 5 minutes walk from the Monorail Station.
I was glad to meet two of the Directors and have a quick chat with them. Makishima is owned by Japanese and both couples, they came here to dine in during their stay in Sheraton few years back, but they could not find any Japanese food. So they come out with an idea to set up a Japanese restaurant serving purely and traditional Japanese food. They are very enthusiastic to open this restaurant here to cater for Japanese as well as for other hotel guest for them to enjoy an authentic Japanese cuisines.
experience the tranquil ambiance and peaceful environment. These private room are suitable for gathering or events and extra charges RM 50 is imposed for the booking of this exclusive room.
Cozy room for 4 people to dine in
Around 8 people can fit in this room as well with an open porthole window to peep on the other side of the room.
From the entrance I can see this Japanese collections of all
sorts of cups and bottles. I read from the other blogger review that they can
actually choose your very own cup design
for your green tea. I miss this opportunity to ask the lady. Pretty interesting!
Array of fresh seafood available daily. The octopus sushi was great with sweet and bouncy texture added on with sourish pickles.
The presentation for both udon and soba isn’t mind blowing, but the taste is good too.
Wide selection of Japanese Asahi & Sapporo beer by the bottle
Salmon salad, potato salad, onion slice, chicken salad and etc
The first section of the salad, tofu, teppanyaki counter and some appetizer to warm up your tummy
Few choices of dressing for the salad as well as for the seafood. They have steak sauce, sesame sauce, egg sauce and Japanese sauce.
Standing tall at the Giant Tree..I felt like taking out my shoes and walking around this place, stepping on the stones and quiet sitting meditation. When you open up the door in the middle it was actually the private rooms. Interesting and Surprise to both of us.
