 Comfortable, No-Frills ~ Fast Food Dining Concept

Order & Payment Counter 

SUKIYA Malaysia practises self-service dining concept at their 4 outlets, where diners will have to place their order at the cashier, pay and take their food tray to their table. With the exception of Uptown Damansara outlet as it was a smaller in size with waiter in service. Featuring a no-frills, friendly and casual ambiance, now tasty Japanese food shouldn't be hard to come by, made affordable and cheap for easy indulgence for any Japanese food lovers!

GYUDON Beef Rice
RM 6.40 (S), RM 8.40 (M), RM 10.40 (L)

Their best-selling item, SUKIYA's signature Gyudon Beef rice comes served with generous portion of tender and flavourful thinly sliced beef strips cooked with lots of onions. Japanese comfort food, Gyu牛 means beef and don丼 means rice bowl (with something on top), consists of a bowl of short-grained Japanese rice topped with a mildly sweet sauce flavoured beef and onion dish. 

 GYUDON Beef Rice (M)

Premium Australian grain-fed beef was used, prepared and cooked every hour to maintain the freshness of the Gyudon dish. SUKIYA practises strict food quality control to maintain the taste and freshness, so regular batches are made regularly throughout the day in the kitchen. 

I'm not a big fan of beef dishes, but this definitely made it into my favourite list. The flavours, texture of the beef and even the rice used made the dish into a comforting and addictive concoction and for once, I savoured it all. Real value-for-money, you simply cannot find beef rice at this price of RM 8.40 (Medium serving), a reasonable good portion to satisfy your hunger.

TERIYAKI Chicken Rice 
RM 8.40 (M), RM 10.40 (L)

TERIYAKI Chicken Rice is another delectable option to try if you are not into beef. A juicy and well-marinated chicken thigh meat grilled to perfection with flavourful Japanese in house made teriyaki sauce, resting on top of the steaming white Japanese rice and served with chopped spring onions. I was delighted with the slightly salty and sweet flavour, not too sweet but just right for the taste buds.

The medium serving portion was just right for me but of course, big eaters can opt for the large serving to fill their big appetite.

 GYU-Curry (Seasoned Beef)
RM 12.40 (M), RM 14.40 (L)

Diners, who want something spicier, can try the restaurant's GYU-Curry (Seasoned Beef). A great tasting dish of two dishes of beef and chicken served with rice. I was in fact reluctant to try any Japanese curry as I never really enjoyed eating it.

But Sukiya's version of chicken curry begs to differ. I was told that they fine-tuned it to suit Malaysian flavour with a mixed of spices such as cumin, turmeric, coriander, clove among others making it into a very delicious Japanese fusion curry Malaysian would loved.

Most who have tried Japanese curry will find it slightly sweet and not too spicy, but the version served at Sukiya Malaysia is attuned to the Malaysian palate. They knows Malaysians love their curry and hope to attract more diners with this special chicken curry. Well-executed dish, now I loves eating Sukiya's curry dishes!  

 Triple Cheese GYUDON
RM 8.40 (S), RM 10.40 (M), RM 12.40 (L)

Sukiya Malaysia also serves up some pretty good cheese rice dishes like the Triple Cheese GYUDON. Cheese-lovers should try out this cheesy dish which comprises a mixed of three types of cheese; cheddar, mozzarella and red cheddar topping the GYUDON Beef Rice.

The flavours were rich and they were generous with the cheese. Topped with the beef strips and cheese, the rice sure hit the right spots. Give it a good stir and mix before savouring all-in-one delicious spoonful of  the beefy and cheesy goodness. 

TOKYO Ramen (with Chicken)
RM 8.40

Besides their signature GYUDON Beef Rice and Teriyaki Chicken Rice dishes, SUKIYA Malaysia introduced TOKYO Ramen dishes in their menu too. The ramen stock is basically a chicken shoyu broth, boiled for many hours with chicken. Sukiya's ramen are freshly made daily with 6 days delivery from their centralised kitchen. Comes served with poached chicken thigh and chopped spring onions.

I like the texture of their ramen but not the taste. It has a mild boric acid (kan sui) taste to it that I dislike most in noodles. As for the broth, it was on the saltier side but that was my personal preference. Well, not everyone can possibly always enjoy the same food as everyone else. And yet our tastes vary so much and so passionately. You may enjoy it all ~ with the ramen and broth, it might goes well with your palate!

GYUDON Seaweed Salad Set
RM 11.90 (S), RM 13.90 (M), RM 15.90 (L)
