Reliable Japanese Cuisine: Rakuzen

Since we arrived in Kuala Lumpur in 2006, one name synonymous to reliable Japanese cuisine is Rakuzen (and the Rakuzen group). For people who have seen the long queues of Sushi Zanmai, well, it is from the same group. Reliability has its attractiveness, because one of the worst things that could happen is to walk into a Japanese restaurant, get overcharged or served below quality food. This has happened to us numerous times, and because of that, when we want reliable Japanese food that is predictable, we go to Rakuzen.

We are happy that there is a Rakuzen nearby our area. In the past, there was only the Plaza Damas branch (Hartamas Shopping Centre). I find that place a bit old and because of the design of the place, it is hard to get the attention (and good service) from the waiters. Despite that, many people still go to Rakuzen there. Recently, they opened Rakuzen in Publika which was a welcome site. We frequented the place, and even spent one new year's eve dinner there (which was near their grand opening date).

Today, we were spending a lazy Sunday at home, hiding out from the haze. However, my daughter was looking for some Japanese food so we thought of popping by our reliable choice at Publika, and we were not disappointed. In fact, the place was packed and we had our lunch at 2:00pm!

One of our regular orders in Rakuzen would be the Teppanyaki Zen which consist of beef cubes served with garlic rice. At lunch time, their sets are cheaper. Dinner time menu is slightly pricier.
