If you love to eat Yakitori, this is definitely a must visit place ! Hidden Japanese Restaurant  serving authentic Yakitori located in the calm street of Seksyen 17, Petaling Jaya. There are wide selection of Yakitori choices that surely satisfy your palate. 

We had a wonderful lunch last weekend trying out the Chef recommendations menu and of course the charcoal-grilled Yakitori in a relaxing environment at JUU NANA SAKABA.

Love the welcoming ambience and cozy interior of this restaurant. Spacious dining seats with Japanese lantern-lit and the brilliant thoughts to use bamboo blinds as partition for extra privacy.

 If you want to chill out, can opt for bar seating and With the open concept kitchen, one can enjoy your food prepared with sight here.

The Shabu-Shabu Salad (RM20) is the signature here as the starter. Serving of cooked pork slices,  topped with egg yolk , layered with the lettuce leaves. Pour the sauce on top , mix together and enjoy the flavour. Light, refreshing, and fulfilling.

Next, we ordered the Top Recommendations menu:-

Beef Tataki

Ikamaru (Grilled Whole Squid-Japan)-  This looks absolutely gorgeous. Perfect for squid lovers.. 

Pork Kimchi - Appetizing, tangy, slightly sweet and spicy. Even kids enjoy the taste of the kimchi.

Tori Chazuke (light comforting dish)

Pork Curry Rice - One of my favourite menu here. Thick curry texture,  Aromatic and flavourful. Comfort food with the right balanced taste of sweetness and hot!

Let's move on to the Yakitori choices that we are waiting for!

Kick start with freshly prepared Vegetables skewers upon ordered. Shiitake mushrooms, king oyster mushrooms, okura, brinjal, onions, bell peppers, leeks, and mixed vegetables.

Freshly-grilled meat skewers with Meat Selections: Chicken, Pork, Beef & Lamb.

There are different meat parts to choose from the menu as well. We pick some of the chicken / pork meat skewers selection . All grilled to perfection!  Juicy, flavourful, and savoury!

Chicken Skin,  Chicken Breast, Chicken Thigh, Chicken Gizzard, Chicken Tail, Chicken with Leek and Chicken Wings.

Choose from pork belly, pork tongue, pork shoulder, smoked duck and lean meat.  The chicken/ pork meat is cut into bite sizes and well marinated. 

It is grilled over a charcoal fire and the

 meat is  seasoned with salt

Delicious tender meat at every bite and simply addictive.

There are more special Yakitori in the menu. Remember to dip them into the sauces!

SMOKY flavour charcoal - Open concept kitchen where we can see the Yakitori food preparations.

Price from RM4.00 per stick, affordable price for tasty Yakitori
Yakibuta Don (Grilled Pork on Rice with sweet omelet)- Beautifully plated with complete side dish.

Besides that, we can also order the set menu with the servings of mains + side salad + Chawanmushi  and miso soup. 

There are many other choices of set menu too

Sapporo premium draught beer is the best pairing to have it with Yakitori skewers. Don't miss the Juu Nana Sakaba's Happy Hour promotions of 3 Glasses of beer for only RM50+ from 5pm to 7pm.

Great food, chill environment and friendly services. Best of all, their prices are reasonable.
