Ichiriki Japanese Restaurant @ The Gardens Mall

Saturday, December 27, 2014 1 Comments A+ a-

We bought this deal from Groupon offering 50% of all menu in Ichiriki Japanese Restaurant @ The Gardens Mall. We can choose from the following offer:-

  • RM30 for RM60 weekday cash voucher (Mon – Fri)
  • RM35 for RM60 weekend cash voucher (Sat – Sun)
We choose the first choice and with RM 60, we can order two set from the ala carte menu. We have browse through the long list of the menu advertised in Groupon website and remember the set menu that we have chosen before visiting the restaurant. No prior booking is needed for weekdays. They have sold up to 2000 vouchers.

When we reached there today, we are greeted with welcome by the friendly waiter and waitress. The manager is polite and showing us where to sit. The restaurant is crowded and almost full. We are lucky to have our seats ready for us and we quickly search from the menu the choices that I have made earlier in the website. But to my disappointment, I could not find the set offering RM 45 for both tonkotsu and unagi set. Hubby also flip through few times and the set is not there. We match against the menu from Groupon website and ask the manager to clarify where is the menu stated?? He explained that there are mistakes done by Groupon website whereby they actually putting in their new menu in the website and did not match the current menu in the restaurant. Many customers have come across of this issue as well.

The manager said the new menu is not firm yet and we can only have those new menu probably next year. I went back and think about this explanation and wondering shouldn't the restaurant itself need to provide the correct menu to be advertised in the website?? and how Groupon have the rights to get their new menu information without seeking permission from the merchant? Please judge it yourself then.

Hot green tea

Bamboo is the main element for decoration in Ichiriki. 

Buta karaage Udon (Rm 16)
 Smooth udon with thick pork slices and The pork slices were tender and juicy. The broth have the natural sweetness and not too salty.

We choose the premium set - Sushi, Soba and KuroButa set RM 43.00 - Large serving of KuroButa cutlet, miso soup, chawanmushi, sushi, fresh fruits and soba.

KuroButa cutlets were crispy and juicy. I enjoy these delectable Kurobuta pork from the black pig. Hubby do mentioned this is the premium meat and I do agree with him. Highly recommended.

Fresh Assorted sushi that is included in this wonderful set. Served with ginger and wasabi

The dipping sauce is so unique - combination with lots of sesame and Japanese soy sauce. The waiter will assist to mix it all together.

Cold soba mixture with the soy sauce broth - a stint of saltiness and I love the Soba ; slippery and smooth.

Affordable set menu and full of pork menu choices.  Do expect to wait for the serving of food. We waited quite long for the KuroButa set, but worth waiting for the quality of the food here. Dining environment is cozy and comfortable with good service.

We are satisfied with this deal and hoping they will offer this great vouchers again next year! For sure I will grab more than one voucher.
