Does that sound good? Well, it was. We walked in, were greeted instantly by a number of people in the waitstaff, and the sushi chef behind the bar. There were not a lot of diners, and the spartan, contemporary simple Asian decor looked even more sparse without patrons. Word to the wise, omakase must be ordered in advance and is ordered course-by-course.
Our waitress took our order, the front-of-the-house manager poked by here and there to offer an explanation or suggestion, and all around the service was excellent. We placed a little order of Scallop and Bontio sushi to go along with the tasting menu. The scallops were fresh, delicate, butter-like and delicious. The bonito fish came out with a few scallions, and was so fresh it was almost criminal. I wish I could have eaten a pound of it.

The dessert was fantastic. The fruit was tasty, and a great choice in Southeast Asia. The chocolate, with some red beans, had this flavor that was almost reminiscent of cherry. It was so delicious, honestly, that the waitress eventually brought out two spoons for my dinner companion and me to eat a few scoops. We didn't finish off the chocolate, but only by exercising the greatest of self control.One of the best Japanese meals I have had anywhere, let alone Kuala Lumpur.
