Nippon Tei @ Suria KLCC

I'm supposed to reward my younger brother for scoring straight As in his last exam. Okay, now that I'm back in Malaysia, I thought that I should keep to my promise and bring him for lunch (another good reason for me to dine out actually). This morning, I reached KLCC before lunch time and did some shopping (again ^_^) while waiting for my brother to arrive. I also asked my aunt who works near that area to join us for a quick lunch.

Since the three of us are so fond of japanese cuisine, we decided to dine at Nippon Tei. We waited for quite some time to be seated as it was lunch time and every eatery in KLCC is jam packed with people @_@

Back to the luscious food!
This rainbow rolls look so colourful and tempting in the menu, priced at RM24, the maki are rolled up with fresh salmon and tuna. Can't tell you how good it tasted by words. A definitely must try at Nippon Tei.

Gyoza is my all time favourite. I preferred the pan fried type gyoza rather than the deep fried type which the latter tends to be too oily for me. Taste wise, the yaki gyoza (RM16) served by Nippon Tei is not too greasy and I have to admit that the fussy me is lovin' it!
I ordered salmon teriyaki set (RM 25) which came with a big chunk of salmon. Hmm...kinda normal and the teriyaki sauce is quite salty too. Opt for other sets instead if you happen to dine at Nippon Tei.

My brother ordered the tempura set (RM25) which came with mixed prawn and vege tempuras. I didn't get his feedback on the set, but anyway the taste of deep fried stuffs wouldn't vary that much right?

My aunt who loves noodles ordered the nabe yaki udon (RM22).

It's dessert time!
I had green tea ice-cream (RM 9) which is served with azuki beans.
Hmm...this is not recommended. The ice-cream is not smooth enough and the beans are too coarse and dry. if you are craving for fine green tea ice-cream, go for it at Shangrila's Japanese Restaurant. With only one buck difference, I bet you will love that.

Overall, the food is not too bad, don't forget the 'must order items' on your visit to Nippon Tei. Ohh yes, thanks to my aunt who foot the bill!

The bill: RM140 for 3 persons

LOCATION: 426/427, 4th Floor Suria KLCC.
