FOOD REVIEW: Takumi Japanese Fine Dining, Grand Millenium Hotel Kuala Lumpur

If there are 2 things I'd go to Takumi Japanese Fine Dining for, it would be Sashimi & Wagyu...Do take note that their fresh produce (meat & seafood) are specially flown in on Tuesdays and Fridays. So the best time to visit Takumi would be on a Wednesday & Saturday respectively :-) (you're welcome!)

Takumi's complimentary Appetiser
The manager recognized me as "the blogger" who went for a food review session there back in November (scroll down for post) and I had high praises for the food there :-)

Fried white bait biscuit. Loved this.

Shellfish marinated with wasabi

crab stick roll


That's the beautiful A5 grade wagyu. Had 2 servings of this coz it was just too good!!! So flavourful even without dipping in any of the sauces


Unfortunately, they were out of most of their fresh meat & seafood items. So we only had the salmon belly.

Pictures below was from my previous visit:-

 

First up, we were presented with the appetizer platter which consisted of Ika Karaage, Edamame, Koebi Karaage, Shishamo – RM60.00 – this was a specially prepared platter for us. You can order the items individually.


 

Salmon O-Toro Tai Braised Duck -RM38.00


Dragon Maki – RM28.00 – topped with fish roe.



A5 Grade Wagyu Shabu-Shabu set – RM288.00 for 2 pax

Wagyu is classified by grades with A being the highest. This is coupled with a number that indicates the marbling of the beef – the higher the number the more fat.


Kinoko Tamago Toji – RM48.00 – wagyu beef this time braised together with egg! Don't leave the wagyu in for long as it will be too overcooked. The beef was flavourful, super tender and absolutely delicious!

You can call in and make special requests like the Lobsters in the picture above or even foie gras (goose liver) for a special occasion/person :-)

Other than that, apart from beer or soju, there are wines and liquors to go along with your meal. Pictured here is Louis 13 which is the top of the range of Remy Martin cognac!

A fine whisky by Chivas and a popular XO by Martell.

Or if you’d like an even higher range of fine liquors you could opt for these.

There are even a couple of limited edition bottles such as this cognac. Be prepared to fork out some dosh for it though!


At Takumi, you can opt to watch the chefs in action at the sushi bar or request for private rooms where you can enjoy more privacy







These are freshness certification certs to proof that their meat are from the highest grade & quality.
