Nippon Sushi @ Kelana Jaya

CheeseBoy and I are certified Japanese food junkies. All these while we have been frequenting a lot of Japanese restaurants, but there’s always something at the back of our minds on their halal-ness. (We tend to ask their chefs on what ingredients they used, the sources, etc., just to be sure.) Our prayers has finally answered, a halal Japanese restaurant just opened its doors closer to home. Yippie!

Located at Highpark Suite Kelana Jaya, this is Nippon Sushi’s 9th outlet and by far their largest outlet. Nippon Sushi at Kelana Jaya can hold up to 104 pax per sitting! To those wondering, this outlet is yet to received their halal certification (the whole process can really take a long time, but it’s just a matter of time), but their central kitchen had received halal certification. So be rest assured that food served here is halal.

Here’s a little tip when ordering the premium rolled sushi peeps. Their portion is rather generous.  We were so shocked when the food arrived. The sushis are so huge! Make sure that you don’t over order like us, yeah?

Our verdict?

Food spread: We are actually very impressed with the menu’s spread. The menu ranges from kaiten belt sushi plates to teppanyaki (not many Japanese restaurants have this!) to tempuras to bento sets. I must say, as compared to other sushi chains, Nippon Sushi has whole lot more variety when it comes to hot dishes.

Taste: To Japanese cuisine connoisseurs out there, we’re quite sure that you could taste the difference between Nippon Sushi’s food taste and other non-halal Japanese food outlets. This is mainly due to all ingredients are carefully selected to avoid sake, mirin, or other non-halal elements. Nonetheless, to be honest, we actually found the food here tasty. And from the feedback we heard from non-Muslims, they said the taste is pretty much similar.

Value for Money: For the taste and portion size, you get more than what you pay for.
