Juugatsu Ten: Sri Petaling's sleekest Japanese restaurant welcomes diners back for donburi & more

September 13, 2021


Juugatsu Ten opened in February this year, so many fans of Japanese fare in the Klang Valley might not have enjoyed the opportunity to visit this sleek restaurant in Sri Petaling.

If you love donburi, sushi, sashimi and all the favourites of Japanese cuisine, here's your chance: Juugatsu Ten has just reopened this past week for dining in, after months of catering to takeouts and deliveries. 

The restaurant provides a polished experience - expect a bevy of premium seafood and other ingredients, prepared by experienced chefs, presented at respectable prices, in a stylish space with wood and leafy accents. Photos here are courtesy of Juugatsu Ten, taken earlier this year.

Juugatsu Ten reopens in complete compliance of current SOPs, with all staff fully vaccinated (exceeding 14 days since their second dose), practising full sanitisation measures after every visit. The restaurant is similarly open to fully vaccinated patrons, with viewing of digital certificates before entry to ensure safety.

If donburi is your cherished genre of Japanese comfort food, you'll be delighted that Juugatsu Ten tackles more than a dozen distinctive rice bowls.

For donburi draped with luscious slices and chunks of super-fresh seafood, spanning salmon to tuna, sea urchin to scallops, dig into everything from the deluxe Sanshoku Don to the traditional Bara Chirashi Don with a marvellous mix of the ocean's bounty. 

Other toppings range from succulent beef to sumptuous unagi, tamago mentai to ikura, tempura ebi to chicken katsu, offering something for everyone, with prices starting mainly from around RM25.

If you love the raw realness of sushi and sashimi, you can indulge to your heart's content at Juugatsu Ten. 

From mouthwatering maguro in comprehensive cuts of akami, chutoro and otoro to hamachi, madai and kanpachi, a full-fledged feast of fish is available, sliced by a skilled crew, complemented by hotate, amaebi, hokkigai, anago, tako and more. 

If you're seeking the best of everything, try the sashimi moriawase to savour the season's freshest seafood.
 
Japanese gastronomy is heralded for various cooking styles, confidently represented at Juugatsu Ten.

If you can't get enough of grilled goodness, the kushiyaki selection is your best bet, bolstered by gorgeous skewers of chicken yakitori, tiger prawns, baby scallops, salmon and shiitake mushrooms. 

For fans of soulful nabemono and shabu-shabu, slurp on steaming-hot pots of sukiyaki nabe, salmon kabuto miso nabe and kaisen nabe.
