Kingyo at Life Center: Restaurant Review
A tale of a Japanese eatery: in the city and steadfastly traditional.
Kingyo, which opened at Life Center this month, practically the same time that sushi-serving rival Doraku launched upstairs in this building.
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.
Salmon-&-Tuna Sashimi Salad
Satisfyingly fresh but far from memorable.

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.
