Step into Minori, the restaurant that exudes luxury and comfort. Unlike typical Japanese eateries, it embraces you with plush leather seats and a spacious interior. You'll feel like royalty in this calm haven, perfect for private moments and business meetings with its well-designed partitions.
What makes Minori truly special is their Malaysian executive chef, who brings over 30 years of Japanese fine dining experience to the table. With professional stints in Japan, you can rest assured of a confident and delightful dining experience.
The venue itself is a gem, accommodating 50 to 100 people, making it an ideal choice for special occasions and events. And guess what? It's conveniently located, just a short stroll away from the Mutiara Damansara MRT station. If you prefer driving, the Royale Chulan Damansara Hotel offers a pocket-friendly flat rate of RM7 per entry for parking.
But what truly sets Minori apart is its extensive and enticing menu. It beckons you to return time and again to explore its diverse offerings. To kick off your culinary adventure, try the mouthwatering Salmon Sanshumori - a treasure trove of salmon sashimi, belly, and roe. The slices are so generously cut, delivering an explosion of smooth, full-bodied flavours.
You'll be delighted to know that Minori prides itself on top-quality produce. Japanese seafood imports are brought in twice a week, ensuring the freshest and finest fish, from amberjack to tuna.
Sushi lovers, rejoice! Minori spoils you with a variety of rolls, from the delectable Unagi Roll for eel enthusiasts to the Dragon Roll for those who adore prawns. And if you're an avocado addict, don't hesitate to ask for off-menu specials like the Unagi Roll with Avocado - a delightful combo filled with tamago and crab sticks, topped with briny ikura that pop in your mouth.
Keep an eye out for Minori's occasional omakase-style dinners, where they showcase other specialities. Recently, they wowed guests with Valentine's Day omakase celebrations featuring succulent Australian and Japanese wagyu for all the beef buffs out there.
Concerned about the prices? Fear not! Minori's rates are in line with other Japanese restaurants in hotels. You can expect to pay around RM100 for a delightful meal for two.
Minori offers an enchanting space for both quiet, intimate meals and memorable family gatherings. The halal-certified food and serene ambience provide the perfect escape from the chaos of crowded malls. So, why wait? Treat yourself to an extraordinary dining experience at Minori!
