Miraku @ G Hotel

Went for dinner with hubby at Miraku on a Saturday night.

The staff recommended the drinks which are on promotion for the month so we tried them out...

Left : Miraku Matcha Latte (RM 7.90)

Right : Cold Honey Lemon Tea (RM 6.00)

Appetizer : Not sure what this was. Did not taste good

Salmon Sashimi (RM 26)

The 6 pieces of salmon was just normal. The portions given were not impressive at all.

Cawan Mushi (RM 8)

For the price charged, this was a very mediocre Japanese steamed egg. It was not flavorful and the texture tasted diluted.

Soft Shell Crab Temaki (RM 9)

Hubby's all-time favorite - this soft shell crab was light and crunchy. Other than that, nothing to shout about

Garlic Rice (RM 18)

Garlic rice that hubby ordered - for a freaking RM 18, this is one expensive rice! And I expected expensive taste too, but it was a MAJOR let down. The rice was not flavorful, the garlic taste was barely there, and the rice came across as though it was fried very casually. Honestly, this did not impress us at all as other Japanese restaurants can do a far better job than this.

Grilled Cod Fish with Teriyaki Sauce (RM 28)

The cod fish was super small in portion and had quite a number of bones. Never fails to turn me off when bones come sticking out from my mouth when I'm enjoying a nice piece of cod.

When I have more spare money available, I may come back to try out some of their more 'exquisite' dishes. But I do feel that being a premium Japanese restaurant, the least that they could do was to make sure the quality of the most normal dishes are up to par. With the total bill at RM 119.35, we could have definitely had far value for money cuisines at other Japanese restaurants, or even elsewhere, to say the least.
