Lunch at Tenji Japanese Buffet Restaurant, Mont Kiara

I've finally secured a chance to eat at Tenji thanks to Akiko for helping me to book a place. As you all know, Tenji is probably one of the hottest restaurants being discussed thanks to the promotions they've been having. Tenji is located in SohoKL, Mont Kiara. They're currently having a promotion for lunch which is RM49.90++(12-4pm, no time limit) and dinner which is a RM50 voucher for every two pax.

Akiko and I were abit late to reach Tenji thanks to traffic madness on a friday. We reached about 1pm and Tenji was already overloaded with people. There were many companies having staff luncheon as a celebration before closing for Chinese New Years holidays. We sat at our table and then I noticed that they used clips to order (similar to Jogoya) some dishes. We began taking our food and here are some pictures.

Ice-cream from Haagen Dazs: extremely popular that words fail me

So, was it good? Oh yes it was indeed. Most of the food I tasted were good. Sashimi was fresh, the oysters was HUGE(and the chef had to peel open the oyster on the spot due to overwhelming demand), the carbonara was very sinful(very very thick and creamy). Though I must say, it may seem that they might be overdoing the promotion. Supply seem limited at some counters, as they dont seem to restock the same item after it's finished(like sushi and dim sum). I didn't have a chance to taste the dim sum.

Overall, for those looking into a new place to eat, this is the place to be.

anyway is it comparable to Shogun since the price is the same.

it's head on with Jogoya if you want to put it in that way. Miles better than Shogun imo.
