Kazuma, the latest traditional Japanese Restaurant in town, by Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur. Authentic, with ingredients air-flown from Japan, affordable price.
Other than the famous Xin Cuisine Chinese Restaurant, now we have more reason to visit Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur as the establishment launches another new restaurant recently, named Kazuma. Taking over the former location of Uzen Restaurant, Kazuma breathes new life to the F&B scene in the hotel, offering apanese delicacies that will set to delight your taste bud with , in a cozy, modern contemporary dining setting that can sit up to 66 persons.
The name Kazuma is mainly associated with harmony, peace and serenity, where Japanese food is built on the foundation of harmony and peace. Japanese Guest Chef Tsutomu Haneishi is hailed from Tokyo, armed with 40 years of culinary experience at several top restaurants and hotels in Japan, Indonesia, Egypt and Kuala Lumpur. Together with his team, chef aims to deliver authentic Japanese cuisine to all, using the finest and freshest ingredient air-flown from Japan and prepared with respect to tradition.
Kazuma’s interior design is inspired from “Japanese residential architectural”. Lattices wooden frame and “Shoji”-style window acts as restaurant and private room dividers/walls, creating privacy without completely blocking out light and sound. Paper felt pendant lamps cast a dim yet calm, comfortable glow to the restaurant. Warm palette of red fabric, which is a symbolic of the sun and is linked to joy and happiness. Further adorned with beige tone, light color wooden blinds and soft upholstery to create laid-back, relaxing atmosphere.
Kazuma Bento RM69
Three main menu available – lunch menu, sushi menu, and dinner menu. Choices are extensive. You can treat yourself to a selection of sushi and sashimi by day; and perfectly grilled kushiyaki by night. While for lunch, the fuss-free value-for-money customized set lunch will get you going. Personally, we highly recommended Kazuma Bento for lunch. Hearty & huge platter, a bit of everything. We counted, it has more than 10 items in total. Wow.
Sushi, sashimi, simmered vegetables, tempura, grilled mackerel, chicken teriyaki, tamgo, salad, pickles; served with chawanmushi, miso soup and fruits.
Kushiyaki RM6-RM8 per stick
What makes Kazuma Japanese Restaurant more worth-mentioned is definitely the price. As we browse through the menu, we were actually quite surprise that even though it is a hotel restaurant, most items here are reasonably priced. For instance, you can get Fried Chicken Cutlet & Egg On Rice at RM28, Chirashi Don at RM40, Stir-Fried Sirloin Beef with Sweet Soy Sauce on Rice at RM35, Hot Udon with Prawn Tempura at RM20, Grilled Skewers between RM6-RM8/stick, We were told that the restaurant hopes to make Japanese cuisine wallet-friendly for everyone, without compromising the quality. Very thoughtful indeed.
Saikoro Steak RM58
Tori Negimisoyaki RM23
Also had Saikoro Steak from Yakimono section. Australian beef tenderloin steak cut into cube, bite size and pan-fried with vegetables. Enjoy in its original taste, or with Japanese Sesame Vinegar, Spicy Miso Sauce, Yakiniku Sauce sided along. Other Yakimono options are Salmon Kama Yaki, Salmon Shioyaki, Saba Ichiya Boshi, Hotate Mentai Mayo, Grilled Shishamo, Gyuuniku Enokimaki, Gyuniku Amiyaki and not to forget Tori Negimisoyaki – which is grilled chicken with miso paste and leek, another signature dish created by chef.
Gyu Shabu Chasoba RM45
Nabeyaki Curry Udon RM28
Some of the chef’s must-try signature are Kazuma Seafood Salad, Tori Omu Rice, Camembert Cheese Harumaki, Nabeyaki, Curry Udon, Gyuniku Amiyaki. We personally enjoyed the Curry Udon, served in claypot. According to the staff, this serving style is common in Japan, but lesser found in Malaysia. Kazuma would love to introduce this classic way of serving curry udon, which also helps to keep the rich, creamy curry gravy warmth.
Hama Sashimi RM110 – 5 types of sashimi. We had maguro, salmon, hotate, hamachi, tako and amaebi. RM80 for 2 pieces each, RM110 for 3 pieces each. If you prefer smaller portion, you can go for ISO Sashimi. Choose 3 kinds of sashimi from maguro/hamachi/salmon/tako, followed by 2 pieces each (RM35) of 3 pieces each (RM48).
