Hidden Gem inside Isetan The Japan Store KL - U Kafe

by - April 15, 2017

I'm a major lover of Japanese food, on an average week, I'll be eating at least 2 meals at a Japanese restaurant. Yeah! That's how much I love eating Japanese food. I have known this place ever since it was open and it is one of my favorite Japanese restaurants in KL that I won’t ever be tired of going back to.

U Kafe is on the 2nd floor of Isetan Japan Store. The cafe is brightly lit, seatings are comfortable and spacious. There is also a lovely wall decal of Japan's landmark. Another thing that draws me to the cafe is the service. The staffs are always friendly and chirpy they also make an afford to interact with their guest making sure the customers are satisfied.

A great deal of thought goes into every item served, making sure the food is well prepared. I highly recommend the Chicken Teriyaki Plate, I always order it when I am here, it is so good I do not want to order other dishes. The other dishes I have tried from my guest are Chicken Kakitama Udon and Yaki Udon, which is good but still not as good as the Chicken Teriyaki Plate.

The Chicken Teriyaki Plate is served with brown rice, chicken teriyaki, salad and cook beans which was just perfect to be eaten with the rice and chicken.

Chicken Teriyaki Plate RM18
Chicken Kakitama Udon RM18

Yaki Udon RM18

Desserts were absolutely marvelous! A must have whenever I dine here. The sweet potato and pumpkin pudding are my favorite, the matcha cheesecake is a bit too hard for my liking. All priced at RM5.80 which is quite reasonable for the amount and the quality of food you are getting and if you are ordering a main dish, there is an additional 10% given.

Overall I really like my experience here, the cafe is comfortable and welcoming. As I told you I was regular and there must be a reason which is the quality and consistency of their food and service. Pay them a visit and you will understand what I mean by that :)
