Kingyo Japanese Restaurant @ Marina, Danga Bay, Johor Baru

Kingyo Japanese Restaurant @ Marina, Danga Bay, Johor Baru

Have been eyeing this Japanese Restaurant at Danga Bay for a while and finally we got the chance to visit it on a random Saturday for lunch. Kingyo is the name of this Japanese Restaurant, located just next to the beach. However, due to the ongoing construction in the vicinity, we are unable to enjoy the beach view. The serenity environment and cozy interior design inside the restaurant still able to compensate the shortcoming of beach view. 


Danga Bay is not crowded at all during daytime, so during our visit, the restaurant has only a few patrons. Despite no crowd, we were told that 20 minutes are required for the foods to be served. 


Actually we waited for 30 minutes instead, but the waiter was very thoughtful to keep refilling our cups with hot green tea. We are pleased by the presentation of the set meal and its taste did not disappoint us. The portion of food was quite decent. 
Grilled Salmon Cheek with Teriyaki Sauce  RM30
The grilled salmon cheek came with a salad, chawanmushi, soup, fruits and pickles, a very complete combination. 
Grilled Eel and Sashimi  RM49
This set meal is perfect for me, a lover of unagi and sashimi, all of them are on the same tray. Kingyo is famous with its sashimi, and it definitely deserves the reputation. The sashimi were very fresh and solid.

The sashimi were in very thick cut and 5 pieces of them were more than enough to satisfy my craving. 


Last but not least, the grilled unagi. I like this very much as it does not carry the fish smell and despite the teriyaki sauce, I can still taste the sweetness from the unagi. I would say the portion is proportionate to its price, if you are not a big eater, this set can actually cater for two. 

I will definitely re-visit Kingyo for its high quality food.
