We ordered the beef and chicken shabu shabu buffet which was extremely good valued at 106rm per head. On top of the beef/ chicken you can order a la carte from a large array of items (salad, tempura, sashimi, sushi, grilled meats, rice, udon and soba). The food was fresh and abundant with very friendly staff that are readily available to serve.
What an excellent Japanese restaurant!!

We stayed at park royal Kuala Lumpur for 4 nights, and get to try most of the cuisine offered by their cafe and restaurant. We had lunch ,4 adults, and we ordered bento set. All our food came within reasonable time, the food presented immaculately, it was quite delicate and beautiful to look at. The taste were super scrumptious. I will be visiting this restaurant again when I'm in town

The food are not authentic at all just okay the food and the chef that prepare our food no hygiene at all he wiping his sweat at his sleeve of his clothes and the service just okay however the staff not knowledgable enough for what they are serving especially the sake and sochu i wanted to try with my friends but no one of them can explain properly. i asked where is the manager they said that they don't have just the supervisor is around so they approached us very disappointed that even the supervisor cannot explain their menus for food especially the drinks. really a horrible restaurant. i hope the management will do something about this. pathetic experience.

Okay....food was very good and staff were nice. However....they forgot one of our entrees and they brought out all the food super quick. We wanted to enjoy a dining experience with a few drinks, but the mains (shabu shabu - hotpot) was served before we even finished the entrees. When we asked the waitress to slow down, she advised us that they close in 45 mins - this was at 9pm. Of course - this made us rush to finish asap. We then found a couple of bugs in our sauce dish. The toilets were not clean at all - which is unacceptable. The decor is old and not maintained. Very bland. Old shelves with random plastic flowers, paint peeling, lights missing, etc. As soon as we finished - the bill was on the table in a flash. However, as I said, food was great and staff were nice....but if you are looking for a fine dining experience- this is not it!

We love this place! Every time we are in KL we give them a visit! Everything they serve, from sushis, sashimis to salads is of outstanding quality. The food portions are of good size. If you would like to have quality Japanese food at good prices Kurata is the place! Keep up the good work guys!
