Maju Junction might be an unlikely location for an impressive Japanese restaurant, but that's what Mikan turned out to be.

A mouthwatering sushi platter of salmon belly, hamachi & ikura. Thanks to the generous slices of indisputably fresh fish and luscious roe, this was every bit as satisfying as sushi at any upmarket outlet in KL.

Tuna sashimi tempura roll with miso sauce. Creamy, melt-in-the-mouth succulence.

Foie gras with king mushrooms in teriyaki sauce. A top-notch treat; three thick, well-prepared slices of goose liver that partnered perfectly with earthy mushrooms and a pleasantly sweet sauce. A bargain for RM38+.

Angus beef tataki with citrus black pepper sauce. Bloody good; tender and meaty.

A tip of the hat is owed to the friendly, accommodating service team. We'll be back.
