Ahh, buffets. The economical route to satisfy those all-too-familiar sashimi cravings.
Fahrenheit 88's Midori features a fair selection of freshly sliced raw fish & oysters. Not top-notch, but decent enough to warrant multiple helpings.
Plenty of sushi too to stuff the stomach ...
... plus tempura & takoyaki (though these tend to get cold on the counter).
Shabu-shabu _ cooked at the table _ is worthwhile, though the dashi broth is a bit bland. Ingredients for the soup include prawns, bamboo clams & fish.
Butter crabs and other dishes prepared to order are also available, similar to other buffet outlets like Tenji and Jogoya.
Overwhelming quantity over quality, but at least nobody will leave this place hungry.
Service is efficient, but the restaurant imposes two different sessions for dinner: 5.30-8pm and 8pm-10.30pm. No overlapping allowed.
Booze is not a problem, with this small carafe of sake costing a reasonable 12 ringgit.
Fahrenheit 88, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur.
