Sushi Mastro Nikkei has launched its new flagship restaurant in Maluri, less than two years after introducing its interpretation of Peruvian-origin Nikkei cuisine in Kepong.

Only a ten-minute drive from KLCC, this is a convenient, comfortable destination for distinctive delights that blend Japanese and South American inspirations.

We love this stylish, spacious setting with a soaring ceiling in the Lavile residential-and-retail enclave. Its bright illustrations by a local artist bring the colours of the Japanese and Peruvian flags to vibrant life. 

Celebrating the birth of this branch, Sushi Mastro Nikkei is offering a new tasting menu that lets patrons sample its most popular bestsellers. Executive set lunches are now also available. 

Customers can feel at ease at Sushi Mastro Nikkei. It mainly serves Norwegian and locally sourced seafood, while any produce from Japan has been flash-frozen months in advance, so it's not impacted by recent controversies in Japan.

Bonus points: This location in Lavile features multiple levels of basement parking with wheelchair-accessible lifts. There's also a private room that seats up to a dozen guests.

Sushi Mastro Nikkei's flagship outpost features an open kitchen where patrons have a first-hand view of the experienced Malaysian team preparing the meals - from slicing to searing, everything is efficiently and elegantly executed.

The new Nikkei Experience 2.0 Tasting Menu is a marvellous way to savour Sushi Mastro Nikkei's top specialities, available daily for lunch and dinner (RM236++ for a two-person set; RM118++ for each additional person). Definitely a hearty, value-for-money set.

The tasting menu kicks off with Sushi Mastro Nikkei's signature chawanmushi, a memorable rendition loaded with chunks of prawns and chicken in the soft, sumptuously smooth custard.

The raw seafood selection in the tasting menu comprises the Nikkei Salmon Mango (Norwegian salmon, lusciously lovely, energised with shoyu-marinated ikura and fresh mango slices) and Ikejime Sashimi (Malaysian-bred golden snapper and malabar snapper, slaughtered via the Japanese ikejime humane method, dressed delicately in ponzu sauce).

Maki enthusiasts will enjoy the Hamachi Uramaki, rolled with Japanese yellowtail, ginger oroshi, scallions and acevichada sauce to convey a rich, citrusy zestiness, and Unagi Uramaki, with crunchy eel, dynamic with orange salsa, kyuri and teriyaki sauce.

Miso soup makes for a soothing palate-cleanser, deep and delicious with umami.

Mains round out the tasting menu with the ocean's bounty - the Scallop & Seabass illustrates how Peruvian Nikkei fare masterfully marries savoury, sweet, tangy and spicy flavours, bringing together Hokkaido scallops and sea bass with with aji amarillo sauce, quinoa and truffle oil, while the Norwegian Wild Halibut showcases pan-seared skinless fillets, full-bodied and fleshy, with crispy potatoes and miso sauce.

Dessert is delectable - Sushi Mastro Nikkei's renowned Graham Cake, layered with cream cheese, crackers and a medley of fruits, a charming crowd-pleaser for all generations. All in all, this tasting menu is terrific for couples, friends and families.
