Xenri D' River View -- Buffet Lunch
One day after sushi Zanmai, I had another japanese meal with my friends. This time we had a buffet lunch at Xenri D' River View which is located at Wisma Elken, Old Klang Road. The restaurant only provides buffet lunch on Sunday from 12-3 pm.
The restaurant's location isn't obvious. It will be hard to notice the restaurant if there is no signboard.
The look is more like cafe than Japanese restaurant.
Actually the restaurant isn't big, and the ornaments make the restaurant look even smaller. But I still like their decoration.
This place resembles "wing-room".
Before taking the food, I had a look at their food. The staffs also friendly and allowed me to take photo at their food.
The station is not big, so most of the food are arranged together.
The sushi bar is actually for dining, but now become filled with food.
Sashimi and Sushi.
The roasted and fried food are available outside the restaurant.
These are the main food found in the restaurant. Luckily the table is big enough for us to put so much stuff on it.
Let me introduce them one by one.
Fried dumpling, fried chicken (looks like fried onion), and cheese-baked oyster. The oysters have thicker cheese taste compared to Kin No Uma's oysters.
Sashimi -- Tuna, Salmon, Ling and Octopus.
Baby octopus and seasoned scallops.
Seasoned seaweeds, jelly fish and mussels.
Roasted chicken and Salmon. Usually I dislike these food since the meat is hard. I prefer eat raw Salmon than roasted one.
Unagi and fried scallop. I really like the Unagi which is very soft and melts in mouth.
Finally, the dessert part. Their dessert is not as good as other restaurant that I have ever been. Less choice and not special.
Muachi, jellys and fruits.
Nestle ice cream.
Ice kacang -- come out from my own hands.
Actually the buffet has got two bad points, the first thing is the buffet doesn't include drinks. So once I see the bill, I was shock. Even for a hot green tea, it costs RM3. Pity my friend who had a cup of coffee which costs RM7.50. But luckily the green tea can be refilled. Another point is the buffet hasn't got that much choice, especially the desserts. The price of the buffet is around RM45, so still acceptable because there are unlimited oysters served.
Other things are still acceptable. The service of the restaurant should be praised. The overall ranking is 3.5 stars.
