Senjyu Sushi - Cineleisure, Mutiara Damansara

Trio Salmon Gunkan
The carousel was moving but the plates were few and far in between. What's happening? It's Sunday evening! How am I to entertain the guests and satisfy the hunger except going a la carte? We came away satisfied with the menu and worth noting is that the service is good and attentive.

Parking at Cineleisure is an awkward affair with narrow ramps and low ceilings. Not an ideal place for the claustrophobic. It may be better to park at the Curve and walk across from the Food Street. Obviously the Cineleisure overall concept has not worked very well as business round the complex looked slow.

Hana Moriawase. The salmon and swordfish were good. Salmon was thick and almost buttery. The tuna was disappointing as it was fishy. The clams were average, between briny and soft leathery in taste and texture. Saving the day, the clam tasted as it should to the palate.
Salmon Kimchi Nabe. Miso based soup with a dose of heat from the spices and the heat from the portable stove. The salmon has got to be fished out as soon as possible to avoid over-cooking.Kimchi Beef Udon. Premium beef slices with Udon. Japanese version of our Wat Tan Hor with Beef and much better.Ikura Chawabmushi as it should - smooth and with a strong Shitake mushroom aroma.And our 3 plates of very average sushi (Softshell Crab, Salmon and Baby Octopus) from the belt. If possible go for ala carte.

Well, sushi from the conveyor belt tends to be hit and miss sometimes. But in Tokyo, it's all good!

Had some of the best sushi I have ever tasted off a conveyor belt in an Okachimachi sushi bar. :)
