Cat found this bargain one day on mydeal.com.my: “70% Off Japanese Set Meal - Main Course, Chawanmushi, Miso Soup, Appetiser, and Rice & Fruits for RM15 per pax at Zakuro 2 (Old Klang Road). Voucher Value: RM49.50”. We were intrigued and duly purchased three vouchers.

The restaurant is located within an upscale cluster of small offices and home offices (SOHOs) development called Scott Garden, and looked a lot like Publika. Tesco is the main anchor and its hyper mart is conveniently located at the lower floors.

Taking the escalator up to the first floor Zakuro is situated on the right side of shoplots flanking the long alley/walkway. Great first impressions as we walked into this restaurant, looking around at the pleasant decor, taking in some incredible aromas, and being greeted and seated courteously and efficiently by the “maître d’”.

Our vouchers entitled us to some great set meals, and after a little deliberation Brendan settled on the 1Udon + 2Inari Sushi; Cat went for the Mixed 3Furai while I tried the Chicken 4Teriyaki.

Truth be told, Brendan’s had better Udon at Sanuki while Cat and I agreed that Yokozuna (for the same price) had a wider choice of set meals and their portions more generous. But for the discounted price of RM14.90 a set we were not complaining much. Would we come again? To be perfectly honest if the set meals remained at the same price we would give this a pass in future.
