Xenri’s menu contains both hits and misses, but its pleasant setting and efficient staff members make it a reasonable option for Japanese food on Old Klang Road.

Amberjack Sashimi with Organic Apple Dressing

It seems increasingly cliched to splash some sauce on raw fish and dub it “new-age sashimi,” but when it works, it works.

2 Xenri Old Klang Road

Simmered Yellowtail Jaw

Moist and meaty, with a sweet succulence that made every mouthful a blissful treat. We’d return here simply for this.

3 Xenri Old Klang Road

Braised Soybean Dumpling

Healthy and well-prepared, but not exactly exciting.

4 Xenri Old Klang Road

Seared Tuna with Ponzu Sauce

Its pinkness underscored its juiciness.

5 Xenri Old Klang Road

Salmon & Bean Curd

One of the least sinful recipes possible.

6 Xenri Old Klang Road

Unagi Yanagawa

Eel with burdock root. Hot enough to scald our tongues.

7 Xenri Old Klang Road

Soft Shell Crab Salad

A generous serving, without any hint of excess oil.

8 Xenri Old Klang Road

Simmered Wagyu beef cheeks.

Perfectly executed, with none of the gaminess that sometimes plagues even premium beef.

9 Xenri Old Klang Road

Tempura Moriawase

Too thickly battered; not the tempura of our dreams.

10 Xenri Old Klang Road

Unagi Cheese Maki

As generic and uninspired as something at Sakae Sushi.

11 Xenri Old Klang Road

Alcoholic Drinks

Nihonsakari Nama Sake & organic-grown La Monte Pierneef Sauvignon Blanc 2008.
