I am not sure how to do my first restaurant review, so I’ve decided to be just blatantly honest about everything. Kids reading this, please click away. Yesterday got a call from classy lady Emi for dinner, and having gotten used to a city enamoured with casual dining – its time to indulge in some ‘fine’ dining. Having so quickly and unashamedly suggested BSC – being 3 minutes away from my house – we quickly found ourselves on the third floor in Kuriya Japanese Resturant.
Arriving at a restaurant for the first time is like meeting a lady for the first time. First impressions set the tone for the rest of the night – and Kuriya seems to be like a modestly beautiful lady. I’d say somewhere in between Meg Ryan and Cameron Diaz – sweet but not imposingly seductive. Nestled right beside its more glamorous neighbour – Bar Twenty One – there’s almost a clandestine feel to its entrance. Ambience depicts a traditional Japanese feel with dark lighting, wood and granite stone-adorned walkways.
So after meeting the modestly beautiful lady – its time to go on a date! Hence the ordering began.
Emi was darn hungry hence she wasted no time as if her mind was set on default Soba. I always believe the mark of a good Jap is the way they cook their garlic fried rice – So I ordered that. We also ordered the most expensive dish on the menu just to taste their flagship dish.
