One of the little secrets every food lovers should know is that the way to enjoying awesome meals without breaking the bank is to just do it during lunch. Many higher end or even fine dining restaurants usually have a rather affordable lunch menu that offers dishes that are of very high quality but at substantially chaper price tag than after sun down.

Hence, my favorite time to visit good Japanese restaurants is during lunch time.

Today, lets look at Ten Japanese Fine Dining’s offering.

I’ve been to Ten for an invited food review but was never a paying customer until recently when I was told that they serve lunch. See, even though I really loved what they do, fine dining prices just isn’t something I can afford often.

Ten offers about two dozen different dishes priced from RM 28++ onwards for lunch. There are also four different omakase courses priced at RM 100, RM 118, RM 148, and RM 240++ per person.

So far my friends and I have tried about half a dozen of the set lunches.

The Assorted Sashimi (RM 60++) and Assorted Sushi (RM 60++) featured some of the freshest seafood ingredients anywhere, with grated wasabi and chawamushi that’s packed of ingredients on the side.

Interestingly, they also have a Vegetable Sushi (RM 28++) option that Jean tried, and according to her, it was very unique and absolutely awesome. Instead of fish you get asparagus, tomato, baby corn, mushroom, cucumbers and so on presented in a way that’s not unlike seafood.

Other dishes we tried were Bara Chirashi (RM 48++), Saba Shioyaki (RM 35++), and Ten Special Bento (RM 55++). None of these disappoints and I wouldn’t hesitate to order any of them again.

The only item that’s still at fine dining price would be their green tea at RM 6++ with unlimited refill. I guess you somehow have to pay for the great ambiance and excellent service somehow.

So now I have Ten Japanese Fine Dining together with Fukuya and Ozeki as the few Japanese restaurants that serves really good and value for  money lunch sets.

Discuss : KY eats – Lunch Sets at Ten Japanese Fine Dining, Marc Residence KL

  1. KY, it took me a while to eat raw seafood but I did learn from friends. Now news from AOL scare me again of raw fish sushi so back to square one. Which ishard to know if raw fish does not problem at all. Now eating cooked fillings in sushi again.

    • KY, I like this restaurant for chef know how to please customers who prefer other type of sushi instead of raw fish type. That why I pick dragon rolls and spider rolls type sushi and cooked filling ones.

    • Vickie: ya, you don’t have to necessarily have raw fish when you eat sushi.

  2. I know the place. They had Delicious there, I think. Still around?

  3. Nice! Yes, i think lunch is a better deal at high end Jap restaurants! Very interesting to see that they are offering vegetarian set though, great presentation too.

  4. Even fine dining also have to come out with lunch promotion. Times are that bad huh?

  5. Had their set lunch long time ago at their old place, and yes one of the freshest sashimis in a set lunch.
