Pig out @ Jagoya

Jagoya oh Jagoya...familiar? I'm sure all of you have heard that it is one of the most expensive Japanese Buffet in town which charges you up to RM 90-RM100/person. I have heard and read on other bloggers' review on it. Mostly giving this restaurant a thumbs up. I always wanted to try it out and even bugged my bf to take me there...He just say, "Honey, it's too expensive and i rather take you to some local hideaway or rent a good hotel and enjoy room service!". Anyway, he is not much of a sushi or sashimi person, so i could understand why Japanese buffet doesn't appeal to him.

However, my lady luck shine on me when my good friend, Chai sms me about the their 50% percent promotion for LADIES only. Sorry, guys have to pay full price!! I know it's unfair but if they let the guys have the 50%, they know they will lose money. Cos seriously, how much can a women eat?? So at the end of the day, we women will HARDLY recover our money...

Just yesterday (Wednesday), we manage to get our booking for 4 person at 9.30pm -1am. The dinner time was all fully booked. The promotion was for a week and surprisingly it's all been taken up....As my friend made a sexist joke saying that the women in Malaysia is getting fat this December cos of Jagoya buffet, Christmas eating parties and the 31 % off for Baskin Robbin on New Year!

It was definitely an exciting moment for me when I arrived at the restaurant as my stomach was growling for food! It was already 9.30pm and we still had to wait in lines to get a table despite booking earlier. There were tons of "walk-in" trying their luck. Just look at the lines!

I was actually getting kinda annoyed cos we actually had to wait in line for 20 minutes before allowing us to enter. There were even a signage that they put there, saying " Proper Manner To Follow while Dining @ Jagoya":

1.) Please "q" even for those that made the reservation
2.) Please pay cash before dining
3.) Please allow our waiter to sit you at your place.

Finally, after getting in...i have to admit that the decor was impressive and very cozy indeed. Then we were given this metal clips in which according to my friend is suppose to be thrown over to food counter you wanted. And the chef will cook it and serve it to you. What a brilliant idea...I guess that's what made it different from other's Japanese buffet restaurant.

Look at their decor...must say it was systematic


Jagoya Experience028
Mountains of food...This was the Western section. Wonder why they use red light. It was kinda difficult to see what food it was and to know whether it is delicious or not....Bad concept....


Jagoya Experience024
You see those small white bowls? That's where you suppose to throw your numbered clips into it. The chef will cook on whatever you order and serve it at your table! Cool huh...


Jagoya Experience027
This is the "Dim Sum" section....


Jagoya Experience031
Look how delicious the sushi is...Ahem by look ah...But actually it was better than normal Sushi place but nothing to shout about that is a"WOW" factor.


Jagoya Experience029
Eddie loves eating the crab....He couldnt get enough of it..


Jagoya Experience021
Us pigging in!!! Look at how greedy we were...there were so many food left and yet we still continue to dive in to take more food! People..think of Africa...(Ahemm....)


Jagoya Experience037
Chai, my friend feeling really unhappy cos the "vegetable" that she ordered and waited for nearly half an hour turned out to be an "Extremely" small portion. Poor thing...


Though, we enjoyed pigging out and indulging in their "Unlimited" Haagen Daz and Baskin Robbins ice-cream(Me of course i only digged into Haagen Daz cos you can always get those 31% discount for Baskin Robbins right?), the food to me is nothing to shout about. Sure they have the normal Japanese food like Sashimi, Sushi, Tempura and etc...and they even have mix of Western& Chinese cuisine like Pasta, Steak and Dim Sum but nothing that i can say, "I'll definitely come back for this again" dish! I guess why people go there is actually attracted to their layout of the place, the concept (E.g. the metal clip of ordering food) and a wide variety of food. So, we are basically sucker of this concept. But to normal Japanese food, they would never step into it. Their Sashimi was not fresh nor was the oyster. To me, it;s just plain "OVERRATED"

After having such a big meal in which the clock ticked at 12.30AM, we had be chased out cos it was closing time. And on the way to our car park, I couldn't help but took the picture of the STUPID concept of signage marking on each floors in Starhill. I think this people behind this wanted their shopping mall to be "different" or high class cos their signage it's hard to understand. Who in the right mind would label each floor like, " Relish, Indulge, Adorn, Muse, Pamper, Feast and Explore"?? It doesn't even relate to the floor we are going to. For example, if you want to go to our "normal" terms of Ground floor...well in Starhill there are known as Indulge!! Anybody have a clue how to link that?? All of us took minutes to figure out which button to press and true enough we found another old couple looking puzzle at the buttons before pressing it. If i were to give an award to "THE MOST SILLY SHOPPING MALL"....Tadaaa.... "Starhill" would have win hands down!

The Confusing button....


Jagoya Experience002
The Relish Sign where the Jagoya Restaurant is located!! Any connection anyone???


Jagoya Experience008
Indulge sign where the "ground" floor is suppose to be....


My Verdict:
Ambience: 3.5 out of 5 sushi

Food: 3 out of 5 sushi

Staff Efficiency: 4 out 5 sushi. They are quick to clean up your plates.

Possibility of return: 0 unless they have another 50% discount promotion.

Ratings: Over-rated


Finally a Puzzle for all my fellow readers....please guess below...

Jagoya Experience038
Guess....number 1

Jagoya Experience043
Another clue for you guys....

I shall review the picture next week.....Let's just see how many intelligence earthlings out there yeah....

I think you should try it again without the discount. I went there once, the food, the ambience, and service is fantastic. What I think is, when the price is discounted, definitely the quality is discounted too.

Mang0, i have to admit their service is good but the food choice was not. Like you said maybe i should try it again when it is not a discount. What about the sashimi was it fresh too? As you could read my newest entry, i got food poisoning cos of this..

My family and I just ate at Jagoya last Saturday.

Unfortunately, 4 of us (in a party of 10) came down with food poisoning. :(

No doubt that variety is good, but sadly, the quality is poor.
