Azuma is the latest Japanese Restaurant which opens its door on 27th December in Queensbay Mall, Penang. This restaurant is very spacious with many tables and customers can choose to have a window seat to enjoy the view of the Penang Bridge. A section of this restaurant is occupied with a sushi bar, surrounded with a conveyor belt filled with plenty plates of sushi.



Hubby and myself were introduced to a few of their ‘must try’ dishes by the supervisor.  One of them was the Shake Tataki Maki @RM15. Unlike the usual raw salmon maki which I had eaten at other places, this maki had the salmon lightly seared. This method brings a different taste to this roll. Delicious and highly recommended to try this for those that do not like eating raw salmon.



Enoki Beef Maki RM18. The small bunch of Enoki mushroom is wrapped in a slice of beef and pan fried with a flavourful sauce.


Sanma Shioyaki Set RM25. The grilled fish seasoned with salt is served in a set with white rice, Miso soup, salad and steamed egg.



Eringi Butter Abalone RM12 is butter fry abalone mushroom. The stem is cut into thick pieces, fried with all the gravy infused in it. It has almost the similar texture to the abalone…it tasted great! Highly recommended to try this dish too.



This green tea ice cream is on the house for all diners on that day.


Refillable hot or cold green tea @RM1 per person. Food at this restaurant are competitively priced and the service was very attentive although it was just the second day of their opening.

but i had a different experience. i was there on new year eve and i waited 1 hour for my food even tho i keep asking for it 5 times during that period… and also being charged for food that we didnt ordered… and also they wanna use their brain to re-count the bill instead of the calculator just infront of the cashier and count wrongly for us… bad experience for me… but the food is indeed very nice… :)

January 7th, 2009 at 4:32 pm

Vkeong – Hope get the chance to meet up with you this CNY.

Allen Ooi – You are most welcome.

Ivan – Glad you like the food. During festive season, services at food outlets can be slow and things can get mixed-up at times.

I was at azuma last night great food and service we love it

October 21st, 2009 at 2:26 pm

Must try azumas salmon belly no where else can fine taste like this very good so juicey prices are very afordable

October 21st, 2009 at 2:32 pm

I went to the restaurant just yesterday and was rather disappointed with the quality of the food. I don’t think the meal is worth the money. With the price that we have to pay, I know of other Japanese restaurants serving way better quality food. I was most disappointed, and my tummy was definitely cranky after that meal! Oh well, guess I’ll be that one customer who won’t go back for more.

April 5th, 2010 at 8:20 am

I like the fried rice most and the unagi sushi…
it’s great…
and the green ice-cream, very nice.
but they not serving the green ice-cream for several time i been then. :(

Azuma Queensbay have terrible service, especially the Chinese female captain & Cashier (trainee). When I pay her in counter, she is SO RUDE by giving ” ??“ ?

Food is “so so”. Sakae sushi is much bettehr. (Not a sakae fans though)
