Ishin Japanese Restaurant, Jalan Klang Lama

Ate there a while back. Here are some photos I took :)

#1 Complimentary appetizer (Cucumber, carrot and onion slices mixed with tuna and mayo- like a Mayo Itame)

#2 Sashimi Moriawase

Clockwise from right: Maguro
(Tuna), Kanpachi (Greater Amberjack), Abura Bouzu (Escolar, often confused with Shiro Maguro, White Tuna), Sake/ Shake (Salmon), Hotate Gai (Scallops- these were the freshest I've had with a sweet, crunchy texture)

#3 Kurage-su (Vinegared jellyfish)

#4 Chirashizushi (Lit: Scattered sushi)

Had a mix of Maguro, Sake/Shake, Ika, Amaebi, Tako, Ikura, Abura Bouzu and one other fish.

#5 "Malaysia" Roll (Mango and Unagi)

This roll was a bit of a disappointment. The flavors were an interesting mix but the quality of the rice was average (rice fell apart a little) and for about RM15, you could get better maki from say, Sushi Zanmai. This roll just didn't have much to offer.

#6 3 Kinds of "Mini" Chawanmushi

Each has a different topping. From right: Tobiko (Flying fish roe), Caviar (A common kind), Uni (Sea urchin). Worth trying once. Chawanmushi had little or no filling.

#7 Sake no Atama Yaki (Grilled salmon head)

#8 Done with my Sashimi :)

Ate the green seaweed deco by accident :X

#9 Wasabi ice-cream (Not pungent but with a nice aftertaste)

#10 Fat Daikon (Japanese radish) :P

Ate there a second time and the Gyoza was terrible. Way too salty. They even got the dipping sauce ratio of vinegar:shoyu wrong. This place is worth a try if you want really good Sashimi and a variety of homemade Japanese ice-creams.


  1. The food looks nice. I would like to try the ice cream.

  2. Yeah the Yubari melon ice-cream's yummy but try the wasabi one first :P

  3. Sushi.......arigato, following u now.

  4. Am a follower too, PeeWeet :D

  5. this place sure sounds familiar, not good ah..then don want to try d~
