A tale of a Japanese eatery: in the city and steadfastly traditional.

1 Kingyo

Kingyo, which opened at Life Center this month, practically the same time that sushi-serving rival Doraku launched upstairs in this building.

Specialty Roll

Kingyo’s prices are slightly on the steep side; its specialty roll, topped with seared minced ‘toro’ tuna belly & stuffed with avocado & spring onions, is a melt-in-the-mouth pleasure, but costs well north of RM60.

3 Kingyo

Salmon-&-Tuna Sashimi Salad

Satisfyingly fresh but far from memorable.

4 Kingyo

Inaniwa Udon

Final Thoughts

The menu is wide, but everything here can be found elsewhere at more competitive prices.

We wish Kingyo luck, but it needs an extra edge to stand out in KL’s sea of Japanese eateries.
