I have dine at Miraku Japanese Restaurant many times and this time around I am returning for their Sushi Buffet. Miraku has successfully introduced the All-You-Can-Eat Sushi Buffet with a selection of Sushi and Temaki.

The buffet features an array of fifteen creations of Sushi and six Temaki Sushi. Sushi lovers should not give this a miss especially with the plentiful choices of ingredients, like avocado, octopus, herring roe, unagi, salmon, tuna, white fish, sardine, squid, surf clam, scallop, tobikko and omelette. The seafood are freshly flown in three times a week.

I tucked in happily at the sushi bar and and watch the various colorful sushi being made by the chefs. Various sushi were made and placed piece by piece on the long wooden platter in front of me. Most of the sushi are served with raw fish with some served cooked, like the Unagi.

A bit of alcohol was an excellent accompaniment to the sushi meal.

Their sushi is fairly popular with the place crowded with mostly Japanese.

The Temaki Sushi came with ingredients of natto, salmon skin, ebiten, cucumber, negitoro and pickle. I started with my personal favorite, the crispy salmon skin with tobiko – a delicious blend with a harmonious texture. I could not held myself for second helping.

Salmon skin handroll

It was a delight to see Miraku serving negitoro (chopped tuna belly) roll. The rich and fatty texture of the tuna belly combine well with the refreshing spring onions.

Another interesting roll is the Natto handroll. The Natto is  fermented soy bean in a gooey texture with a unique taste. Some said that the taste is quite similar to the fermented stinky tofu. You have to acquired the taste and once you do so, the taste gets better and better.

Overall, I did enjoy tantalizing my taste bud with the freshness and the lightness of sushi in Miraku! Check out the chef in action in my vblog below…

The first session is from 6pm to 7.30pm and the second from 8pm to 9.30pm. Advanced booking is encouraged due to limited seating as the sushi bar can only seat 22 people.

For myself, a Japanese native, Miraku is one of the best Japanese restaurants in Penang. It’s fantastic to be able to have sushi buffet for such an amasing price. Thanks so much for posting this info.

Hi CK,

I went before for a few times, however last sat (5 Feb 2011) the customer service from the waitress is terrible and they act as if they can’t wait to get rid of us…..I think this would be the last time i would go though the food is good…

CK Lam Reply:

Service can be a bit slow especially on the busy CNY day, christine. Even the same happened to me in the food court.
I am sure service will be fine during normal days.
