Update : March 31, 2013
Shiki Yoshi is closed.
Shiki Yoshi Japanese Cuisine Restaurant was located along main road Jalan Tanjong Tokong. It is not park under the hypermarket or supermarket retails stall; instead they are stand alone bungalow which is well decorated with Japanese taste. Prior to Shiki Yoshi Japanese cuisine exists, this restaurant was called Ryoma Japanese Restaurant. They took over the restaurant and renamed it as Shiki Yoshi Japanese cuisine.
There is limited car park within the bungalow; max capacity is around 20 cars which is sufficient for the customer. Upon entering from the main door, you will see the sushi bar on the right and the main dining area on the left. They have 4 private rooms which can accommodate ~ 6-10 customers. They also provide a big private room which can accommodate up will 30 customers.
With such a big bungalow which comes with multiple private rooms, customer service is important. If you need the waitress attention, you can just press the button for attention. This is really a plus and something which I like! You know, customer is always lazy to walk!
Their menu is kind of simple and nice, it come with picture, explanation in English and Japanese writing. The price tag is clearly stated and it is user friendly. What you see in the menu is what you will get at the end of the day.
Overall, the environment is great but not excellent as the waitress does not dress up in Kimono when compare to previous owner Ryoma.
How does the food taste?
Here is what I ordered. First is the Salmon combo as shown below. This combo come with 4 big slide of fresh salmon, 4 pc of salmon sushi and 6 pc of salmon maki. This dish will always be the first dishes that being served to us. It just tastes excellent!
The second dish is the Seafood spring roll sushi. This is the fusion of Vietnamese rice sheet with Japanese sushi. There are 3 types of raw fish with in the roll, i.e. salmon, white tuna and red tuna wrapped with some fresh vegetable. If you are sushi lover, these 2 dishes will definitely met and exceed your expectation! At some point of the time, you will start to addict to it. Like me, he he..
Beside these 2 dishes, we have ordered some other dishes like tempura mix, Shiki Yoshi Gozen, Tobikko, Teppan Ika and etc. There are not much different or special about these dishes. There are no pictures on those here, this give some space for you to explore.
Overall taste is great. They food quality has improved significantly. I still remember last time I drop by this restaurant after they take over from Ryoma in March 2012, their food qualify is really below expectation. I kind of disappointed to it. That why I have stopped visit to Shiki Yoshi Japanese cuisine for more than half a year. Well, recently, I decide to pay another visit there as my relative came from KL, luckily, Shiki Yoshi did not disappoint me.
