Tenji Japanese buffet BETTER THAN Jogoya!

Aha! I knew that would get your attention! Jogoya is probably the best place in Malaysia for a Japanese authentic buffet, but it cost RM 80+ so not a lot of people can afford it!

Well. Jogoya would have to fight for it’s customers now!

December 19th is the birth of a new competitor of Jogoya, it is TENJI Japanese Buffet!

Right now they are having a promotion of RM29.90++ for the lunch time BUFFET! But the catch is that you have to eat within an hour, but for me it won’t take me a long time to get my stomach full so it is an advantage that I bear and Sarah as well! But every subsequent hour, it is an additional RM10, which is still cheap! But for today, there was a Christmas promotion from the Original price of RM 77++ , or you can opt for RM49.90 for today and till the 15of Jan! No time Limit eat till u drop until 4 p.m!

Ah I tell you the food was just sensational! And so was the ambiance~! The layout of the restaurant was fantastic!

The 4 juices ( Pineapple, Kiwi, Pink Guava and Apple), and your selection of fresh fruits! (Apparently there was a choc fondue fountain according to my bro, which I totally missed!)

Spread of cooked Japanese food here.

Spread of the sashimi down the left row and close up on the right is the chef preparing the cold soba!

The spread of sushi!

Fresh young Coconuts!

As you can see the place is just simple! And the food is just there! Ready To Be Consumed! You can say it was like a mini Jogoya!

Tenji serves not just the Japanese Cuisines such as your sashimi, sushi, Cold Soba, Tempura, Teppanyaki, but also western cuisines such as the roast lamb, pastas, typical Campbell soup, Cod and so on.

Here is the roast pork! It was succulent as mum put it!

Here is the Seafood Puff Soup! Basically its puff pastry over a bowl of enhanced mushroom soup. Very good that you don’t taste a hint of Campbell written all over it! Or was it HOME Made!

Garden Salad… didn’t touch it cause it was typical and everywhere has salad and their dressings so yea..

Oysters! They were pretty big! Compare it with a spoon!

The way that they cut the sashimi was so good! I like mine thickly sliced and it was just so nice!

Here are some of the selection of teppanyaki and tempura. Silly me i forgot to take a picture of the adjacent part of this bar. -.- There are more on the left side of tempura and fried stuff selection!

And here is the dessert bar! I tell you… You have a selection of Mochi (I think 6 flavours), choc mousse, Tiramisu, Choc cookies, cakes and more which I haven’t tried, cause I already ate too much before the dessert! I just ate my mochi! The Black Sesame Mochi was just Orgasmic and to Die FOR!

And there is another surprise to place the Icing of the buffet…

They have HAAGEN-DAZs Ice-Cream! (Reminder the buffet is only Rm 49.50++ or Rm29.90++) They had 8 flavours to tickle your taste buds! And they had 2 of my favourite! Rum Raisins and Macadamia Nut! I was like! NO WAY!! HAHAH!!

When I saw this sign I just started to drool…

My dad’s advice is, when you arrive at the restaurant you should eat the ice-cream first. haha… Yea. I know where he is comin from! Rm 8++ for a scoop of Haagen-Daz Ice-cream at Pavilion while you can get all you want in Tenji!!!

Sorry for lack of pictures, cause my cam ran out of batt. smart huh.. after comin back from Malaka I forgot to charge… So I had to rush on the ambiance pictures…

Here are a LITTLE of what I ate at Tenji today.

The grilled salmon was pretty nice! the Soft Shell Crab on the left of the Salmon steak was decent but nothing to shout about. Even the one at Sushi Zenmai is better!

These are the ones that you can grab off the serving platter, but there are also those that you have to specially order!

Ok there are these clips on your table rite, which are clips to identify your table with. For the special orders (included in the buffet OF COURSE..), where they cook it for you and it is sent to your table. All you have to do is to place your clip on to the bowl in front of the sample dish at the western selection buffet spread where the chef will cook it straight away and it will arrive at your table with the dish that you ordered and your clip, which you have given to them to identify the table that placed the order. Those who ate at Jogoya will know what I mean.

I can’t remember the names of the following dishes but well in order, they are Cod, Spegetti served with Grilled Chicken and a slice of Emmantal cheese and Salmon Steak fillet. All were superb! There were other selections of pastas and also other steak like stuff but didn’t want to try all cause I was already pretty full!

Well it’s a pitty that I took little pictures. But I will be there soon! It was pretty random cause my parents were like lets go for a buffet at Tenji. I was like straight away shot out of bed and got dressed and left the house in 10 mins!

Don’t ask about the hair ok.. just woke up, but I don’t care 😀 I enjoyed my buffet today!

Happy Birthday John New Ming Chiang!

Since tomorrow is Christmas, and my bro’s Birthday is on Boxing Day, i.e 26th Dec, we will be busy with a host of parties during the 12 days of Christmas, so we decided that that it was John’s early Birthday Celebration! Happy Birthday Bro!

So overall I will say that the buffet was excellent but the thing is that their serving portions can be smaller cause I was so full! hehe…

Other than that if your looking for excellent quality Japanese cuisine then try TenJi Japanese Buffet as the quality of food is same as Jogoya, plus TenJi has HAAGEN DAZ!!!!

And the buffet is only….
for now till 15th Dec! If not the original price will be Rm 77++ for lunch and Rm 88++ during dinner!

Will definately visit there again before the promo ends!

  1. I wouldn’t say Jogoya is authentic Jap cuisine.
    The moment I took my food, bit into it, I asked my husband, is this place opened by a Taiwanese or Hongkie?? And as I looked around more… true, a Taiwanese. The food spoke for itself.

    Authentic.. go for KL Shangrila’s Zipangu Saturday Buffet. Selection’s not that wide, but good quality food. Very nice oysters.
