WHY GO

Kuriya is a com­pelling pit stop for those who en­joy mod­ern in­ter­pre­ta­tions of Ja­panese favourites along­side clas­sic main­stays.

TATLER TIPS

Air-flown sashimi forms the back­bone of Kuriya’s menu. Clas­sic of­fer­ings like Ja­panese teapot soup and deep-fried breaded oys­ters also stand up to scru­tiny, while an in­ter­est­ing se­lec­tion of ap­pe­tis­ers such as deep-fried mini shrimps make for great pair­ing with wine and beer.

The as­sorted sushi sakura com­pris­ing vine­gared rice topped with eight types of raw fish passed the fresh­ness test with fly­ing colours. Flashes of the chefs’ cre­ativ­ity can be savoured from in­ven­tive dishes such as smoked salmon and duck maki roll and yaki ebi shu­mai, mor­eish grilled prawn dumplings. Sur­pris­ingly, the omakase op­tion priced at about RM250 per per­son seems rea­son­able.
