Facelift…

This Japanese place here…

Sushi Tie

…has been around like forever – not my favourite place for Japanese but the food was all right – not great, just all right and not that cheap either…plus the cubicles were so narrow I could hardly get in without having to push the furniture for a bit of extra space. I must say that I was quite impressed by what it looks like this time around as it certainly is very much nicer now than around 10 years ago and yes, there is a lot more space…

…for me to move around comfortably. I guess they must have their own following for there were quite a lot of people having their lunch there that day.

I did not even realise that it was closed for a major facelift and renovations until my girl told me that they had reopened after everything was done and she would love to drop by and see if they had anything good on their menu.

The golden spider (RM20.90)…

…was very nice, their soft shell crab with salted egg sauce, much nicer than what we had here but the dragon roll (RM20.90)…

I had the unagi tamago don, regular (RM23.90)…

…which was all right, just that I thought it had a better presentation in the menu.

My missus had their karaage lunch (RM24.90)…

…while my girl had the unagi version (RM32.90) which looked more or less the same except that she got unagi instead of those four chunks of fried chicken.

On the whole, we enjoyed our individual picks and for dessert, my girl had the adzuki caramel (RM10.80)…

…with the three rubbery glutinous rice balls on top, not that I am all that fond of those. My missus said she was full and did not want any.

All in all, we thought it was an o.k. lunch, not anything that would get us rushing back for more and definitely not at those prices. The total came up to RM151.60, RM4.50 for three glasses of green tea, and with the 6% SST (RM9.10) and the 10% service charge (RM15.16), it went up to RM175.85. I certainly can think of many other places where, with that kind of money, we would be able to enjoy a very much nicer lunch…twice, at least!

SUSHI TIE, HQ PEDADA (2.293156, 111.836099) is located at No. 24, Lorong Chew Siik Hiong 1A in the area of shops behind Rejang Medical Centre.

  1. Though they all look good in the picture but unfortunately not for me. I agree with that kind of money you certainly can get better and nice food elsewhere.

    Not worth spending so much really – not anything to get us to go back there again…and spend that kind of money.

  2. you are right that with that price, you certainly can get better and nicer chinese cuisine elsewhere but not when it is Japanese cuisine unless you are talking about affordable Japanese eateries like sushi mentai. How would you compare this place with sushi mentai seeing that you have been to both? it isn’t a fair comparison I would say because I think they are targeting different consumer segments but taste wise which do you prefer?

    Except for the softshell crab at Mentai, I liked everything else there a lot more than what we had here. Guess we might as well go back there whenever we feel like having Japanese…plus it is not so expensive there compared to here.

    1. Yes, that is the purpose of Sushi Mentai. To give affordable Japanese cuisine.

      I don’t mind if it is pricy – the food is good, the service is great. I will always leave a tip even though they do charge the 10% there.

      Here, they got my missus’ order wrong but we just took it, did not want to make a fuss and we had to pile up the plates neatly and get them to come and remove them when we were done. They would need to train their staff a lot better to merit that 10%. On the whole, nothing to make feel like wanting to go again.

  3. I dont remember I have been here. Heard it isnt cheap.

    Yes, it wasn’t cheap before and it is even more expensive now, it seems. Food was just so-so and pretty much that same standard now – that was why we hardly ever went back, liked the other Japanese place in town a lot more but it has since closed down.

  4. soft-shell crab with salted egg sauce is a great idea – i haven’t seen the japanese restaurants in kl offer it yet 😀

    I wonder if they have that in Japanese cuisine but then again, these days, it is salted egg everything.

  5. These Japanese places are pricey but I do indulge once in a while.

    I don’t mind paying a lot more if the food is exceptionally good – I felt what we had was somewhat mediocre. Have had better Japanese elsewhere.
