Lunch @ Sushi King, Sunway Pyramid

Good ol' Sushi King started out as one of the prime Japanese fast food (sushi) chain here in Malaysia and I still remember their popularity.
Over the years, Sushi King has to stand against some very tough competition with the birth of new Japanese outlets such as Sushi Groove, Sakae Sushi, etc.

Even I myself personally prefer Sakae Sushi due to the variety and also the pricing which was reasonable and of course, the important factor: the quality and taste of the food.

So what happens when a Sushi King fan vs Sakae Sushi meet for lunch?
A toss of the coin to decide?
Haha...not really, we just proceeded to Sushi King for a walk down memory lane (as I was also not really in the mood for Sakae)

I love Sake Teriyaki (salmon fillet cooked in teriyaki sauce) and it is a must-order for me whenever I patronize any Japanese outlet.

It is also one of the main things that I like and prefer to eat anyway.
I found this version in Sushi King lacking in the sauce to compliment the fish fillet; needless to say, I was rather disappointed.

The black pepper dory fillet cooked in teppanyaki was a rather filling and value for money lunch set.

It was served with rice and also side vegetables, along with a cup of chawanmushi, miso soup and a Yakult yoghurt drink.

A really healthy option for lunch; don't you think so?

The difference found between the original chawanmushi (ala carte order) and the chawanmushi served in the set; was the lack of mushroom slice on top of the custard.

When you are in Sushi King, it wouldn't do much justice if you do not order their sushi

The outlet was rather quiet despite it being lunch hour; or perhaps it was on a weekday?


  1. Great looking lunch! The teriyaki salmon makes my mouth water. I would definitely stop by if I lived in the area.

  2. Maybe it's quiet because there are so many other sushi competitors around.
