Sushi Zanmai @ The Gardens

This is my second time dining in Sushi Zanmai at The Gardens. We arrived a little earlier (12.30pm) to avoid the long queues. The last time I was here, we had to wait about 20 minutes to be seated as the place was really busy with customers.

We were seated at a table for 4, but asked for a table change 5 mins later because the woman next to us kept coughing (and never bothered to cover her mouth!). So inconsiderate! Please keep your germs to yourself woman. Luckily, the staff was able to seat us elsewhere.

We ordered the chuka idako (baby octopus-RM6.00), my favorite! It was really nice (and tasted really fresh) and it was quite a big portion. Sashimi was also very fresh, 3 slices for RM6.00. The waiter recommended the soft shell crab okonomi-yaki (RM12.80) -it's a Japanese savoury pancake with egg, onions, topped with "soft shell crab" and shrimp roe. We didnt like it; firstly, it didnt taste very nice and secondly, the soft shell crab was almost non-existent, it was more like flossy skin. So disappointing. I was going to order a soft shell crab temaki but since we ordered the okonomi-yaki, I had the unagi temaki (RM3.80) instead. I also had the chawanmushi (Japanese egg custard - RM4.80); it had a really silky texture and one of the best I've had in a while. To complete our meal, we had ebiko sushi (shrimp roe - RM3.80). Sushi is good for filling one up!

All in all, it was a good meal. Food was fresh and presented well. Service was prompt and good service for green tea refills. Good place for a quick lunch.
