Ten Japanese Restaurant has finally re-opened its door after what seemed like a long long wait for me. I remembered my first experience with their publika outlet was also my last, not because it wasn’t good, it was in fact a truly enjoyable experience, but sadly they were due to close the following week due to its plan to shift over to MARC Residence.
Ten in MARC Residence overtook the former Delicious, and now operating at a bigger area that sees a welcoming entrance with high ceiling levels that brings out the restaurant elegance and character with clever partitions to create different dining ambience in one space.

The current menu is one of simplicity as they are still not fully open to the public yet. Their starters ranges at RM40-RM60, whilst their mains were at RM65-RM320 (Australia live spiny lobsters! Sounds Yum!)

Something to look out for is their teppanyaki set, sushi set (RM260), and omakase set (RM300) to have a good samplings on everything chef has to offer. Should you opted for the teppanyaki and sushi sets, you must be seated at the chef’s working table- they were very adamant about this.
Our fellow foodie Sean opted for the Omakase Set, which entails a long-winding yet pleasurable 10-course samplings, you can hop on to his blog to read about it, whilst I opted for the ala carte options.

First up, Salmon and Avocado with Ten’s spicy dressing (RM45). Interesting presentation as its ingredients were rolled into a refreshing bite size that blends well with its dressing.

Sushi Moriawase (RM80) came a standard set which comprises of 6 pieces which wasn’t too exciting. Taste wise was also quite mediocre, though I do enjoy the eel and sweet shrimp the most.

Sashimi Moriawase (RM180) flairs better. A deluxe set with 8 choices of whatever came fresh which I hope you won’t ask me what it is, because I have no idea. I don’t have much opinion of this but generally KAME sushi would be a more ideal place for your sashimi kick at a more reasonable price.

Aburi Chutoro & Negi Kinpira with Ikura Soy sauce (RM90), seafood overload for a night, nevertheless this scorched tuna mid belly with sautéed spring onion does not fail to please.
Unagi Kabayaki with Mashed Sensyo (RM60) has a surprise visitor! We were genuinely pleased to see some foie gras dancing with exuberance on the plate of Grilled eel with mashed Japanese Sansyo pepper. The foie was not listed in the menu. Happy and boastful on the extra “something”, it is only towards the end of the day we found a bill of (RM90) for this dish. But all was forgiven because it was some pretty decent sized foie gras. We deem this the best ala carte dish of the night

Gindara Saikyoyaki Yuzu Miso (RM75) has its mixed reviews. While I thought that it was a pleasant enough dish aibeit slightly dry (you can never go wrong with cod!), there were comments that it was slight bitter, most probably the cause of its skin.

Carbs alert! Wagyu Garlic rice (RM40) with asparagus is sufficient to filled me up, it was a very different version from Rakuzen’s. A lighter version which some may prefer.
Finish our meal with a refreshing end- YUZU sorbet
Our meal came at a high cost, we blame the three bottles of sakes (RM350++ for 720ml bottle each), and left with some very empty wallets and dejected souls. Clearly, the food appears to be less impressive from its former establishment, given the natural high expectations from one of the top Japanese fine dining in KL, but comparatively to many mainstream Japanese restaurants out there, TEN would still be a restaurant that is sought-worthy for quality over quantity Japanese cuisine.

In our room overlooking the small garden. everyone seemed happy about something :)


Food: 6.5/10
(Sean's omakase seem to flair better, i loved the tuna with truffle oil! I'm looking forward to check out Ten's teppanyaki set next!)

Service: 7/10
(only because of that cute server)

Presentation of food: 8.5/10

ulric said...

Hey...tat's Sean!...hehe :D

Their Sashimi Moriawase looks more of a bargain than their Sushi Moriawase...haha =)

Sean said...

ooo, btw, so it turns out that the teppanyaki counter is also very popular! it was totally packed with other people on thursday night, so we were unable to try the teppanyaki degustation in the end (cos they still imposed that rule about having to sit at the counter for the degustation) :D

Japanese Restaurant said...

hmm..your post is really nice and i really enjoy while reading this post and pictures make this post alive.

AugustDiners said...

ulric: there is a choice of standard and deluxe i think! that's why its different! hehe, to be fair there was plenty of Sashimis in that platter!

Sean: OH! you still have money to go back? hahaha! im guessing you've tried all the menu by now (except for teppanyaki) :P

Japanese Restaurant: Thanks very much! Positive comments always made my day

Baby Sumo said...

I was always a big fan when they were open at Solaris Dutamas, had some of the freshest sashimi. Would certainly go to their new outlet to see if it still lives up to expectations.

Sycookies said...

I have always wanted to try this one when I read about them in Solaris. Super near my place. But I failed to locate them then, and after a while I kinda forgotten about them.

AugustDiners said...

Baby Sumo: Looking forward to read about it :D

Sycookies: Yes it was forgotten by the mass for awhile and now it's back! :)
