Sakana Sushi Bar and Cuisine has been operated for almost two years and it has been receiving bad comments from customers. Whenever I talked to my friends about Sakana Sushi, they have always showed me their unsatisfied face. To cop with this, Sakana Sushi has taken some serious action. On the 1st of April this year, Sakana Sushi has changed it's management, it's chefs and it's menu. Though I have never been to Sakana Sushi before and therefore don't know how the food previously tasted like, but one thing for sure is that I am quite satisfied with the foods served by this whole new Sakana Sushi.

Sakana Sushi Bar & Cuisine

Sakana Sushi's building has a square design. The surroundings are the place for the customers to have their meal and the middle part is the kitchen for the chefs to prepare the foods.

The are big and small table at the surroundings. The big one can fit in four people while the small one can only fit in two people.

What if you come with more than four people? Don't worry, there is a place for you. You can have your meal at the front of the kitchen. The are sushi belt surrounding the kitchen, yet no "real" sushi were putting on it. The sushi put on the sushi belt were just the plastic samples made for the customer's reference. The manager said that if the sushi were put too long on the sushi belt, it will become not fresh (the sushi belt was there already during the old management time, the new management didn't planned to removed it so they just left it there).

This love shapes decoration is the comment dropped by the customers after the 1st of April. The director said that 90% of these comments are the good one! Besides, the director hopes that the customers can give them a chance to serve them even better. Keep up the good job, Sakana Sushi!

Sakana Sushi is giving out Doraemon doll for free. The pre-requirement is that you have to spend a total of RM80 or above. The bad news is that this offer is only available on May and June. (you can try to ask them and see whether they still have any stock left)

These Doraemon dolls were all with different expression on their face and each of them were wearing a Chinese Zodiac's cloth. So, there will be a total of 12 of them. Let's collect all of them. =)

Besides Doraemon the robotic cat, I have found a number of fortune cats inside Sakana Sushi as well.

We were having our food review on the upper floor, which is a VIP room. The first impression I get when I enter the upper floor is, wow, it really looks like a church hall! Customers have to spend more than RM500 to be eligible of using the VIP room or the number of persons are over 20 pax.

We were using the right side VIP room. The room's design was pretty simple and the space is quite wide. Though the room was air-conditioned, yet it was quite hot. I was sweating while taking photographs of the foods.

Deluxe Sashimi - RM55.00

Normally I wouldn't eat Sishimi as I scared the fishy smell of it. I have tried a few on that day and it was quite fresh with no fishy smell. Yet, I still cant get use to the taste of the raw meat.

Salmon Aburi Maki - RM20.00

Unagi Tosa Maki - RM22.00

These maki tastes normal to me. The presence of Unagi in Unagi Tosa Maki is just not strong enough. If I have to choose from among these maki, I will preferred Salmon Aburi Maki.

Deluxe Assorted Roast Sushi - RM40

This Deluxe Assorted Roast Sushi is what I would like to recommend. I love all the roasted sushi and my favourite is the Unagi sushi. It tastes sweet and firm on the bite. Nom Nom Nom~

Watana Gani Salad - RM18

This Watana Gani Salad is something I want to strongly recommend! Really, you wouldn't want to miss out this one. Besides soft shell crab, the chef has add in fried salmon skin. Another bonus is the vegetable is quite fresh. Out of all, the most special one is it's sesame sauce! It tastes sweet and the sesame really light up the taste buds!

Kamo Teriyaki - RM18.00

Personally like how the Kamo Teriyaki tastes, but the portion is just too little for me. So I would suggest to pay an extra RM4 to make it a set meal. The set comes with rice, miso soup, fruit and chawanmushi.

Chicken Teriyaki - RM13.00

Personally will preferred Kamo Terriyaki more than Chicken Terriyaki. The portion Chicken Terriyaki is not that much as well so I would suggest add on another RM4 to make it a set meal.

Butaniku Enoki Maki - RM14.00

This Butaniku Enoki Maki is another dish that I want to recommend. This is the first time I have tasted such combination. The texture is very special.

Salmon Teppan Yaki - RM20.00

The Salmon Teppan yaki don't really suit up to my taste.

Seafood Chahan - RM13.00

Yaki Soba - RM15

The Seafood Chahan and the Yaki Soba tasted normal only, nothing really attracted me (maybe because I was already quite full at that time..hehe..)

My photo

家在砂拉越,人在槟城。一名热爱自由,热爱探索的小伙子。不想被工作绑死的他立志成为一名流浪汉。随心所欲,自由自在,四处游荡的活着是他的生活方式。摄影是他的爱好,相机是他的伙伴,双脚是他的交通。他把生活上值得记录的小小故事拍摄下来,通过「我的故摄生活」与大家分享。这,就是我的故事,我的摄影,我的生活!

Born in Sarawak but live in Penang. A guy who love freedom, exploring and photography. A wanderer he is and he is still jobless. Just follow his heart and do whatever he want is his way of living. With just a camera and his two legs, he wrote his story via blog. This is his story, "My Life Via Lens". This is my story.
