Yokozuna Casual Japanese Dining @ Jalan Perak

I have bought few coupons through group buying company at RM9.90 per bento set from Yokozuna.  It's worth to give it a try since we hardly get such price from any other Japanese restaurant.
The menu

The kitchen is behind the whitish wall.

sushi counter
Refillable green tea @ RM2 per person

Seafood Teppanyaki set
 Their teppanyaki contains some prawns, cuttlefish, fish fillet and veges.  Unfortunately, the dish full of butter whereby i can only taste it instead of the seafood.

Saba Shioyaki set
 The saba is fresh with thick meat but the skin is not crunchy enough.

Ebi Tempura set
 The most popular dish for my kids whereby the tempura is nice with fresh prawns.

Chicken Katsu set
The chicken is quite crunchy but it's lack of taste and too dry.

Each set comes with a bowl of white rice, miso, chawan mushi, pickles and fruits.  We are too full to try their sushi, maybe next time.
