“Excellent Place..... but never visit the washroom before meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2016 via mobile

Brought my wife for dinner. Food and service is excellent. Both of us enjoyed it thoroughly. All the praises prior to mine are true, with me having a slight reservation on its pricing. Hey, it is relative after all and everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, right?

However, the washrooms at the 1st Floor are really the anti-climax. For gents, after doing your business, forget of washing your hands. Tap isn't working. And mind you, the toilet stinks. Likewise, for the ladies' section too.

The restaurant is located in a 5-star hotel and it is a real disappointment for the diners. Was informed by one of the staff that this problem has been prevalent for years.

Over to hotel management and building owner to address this issue.

“Good value!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2016

We tried three items from the lunch menu: Hokkai Chirashi Set, Sashimi Set and the set with Zarusoba. Great value at RM$109. Chawanmushi was served piping hot at the end of meal.

“Good service, excellent food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2016

After 12 hours of traveling we wanted a reasonably quick meal and not too heavy, being in Penang that is never an issue but it was already 8pm and the heavens had opened up due to a massive thunderstorm, so no choice to eat other than the hotel, even going to Gurney Plaza as close as it is, was out of the question.

Decision was to eat in the Japanese restaurant and we were not disappointed.

Service was quick, and the food cooked to perfection (IMHO), I just love unagi, and this was perfect. My other half had some mixed tempura and was also very happy.

All of the above for just over MYR100, highly recommended.

“Very Good”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2016 via mobile

It was 130pm and we needed lunch before leaving Penang island to continue on our travels. Where to eat with two toddlers, one pregnant women and 4 adults. The rain was also pouring down.

We ducked into the G hotel and got a private room at Miraku. The set menu was great. Lots of choices and the food great. Staff were attentive although it was a case of hearing but not listening. It took two tries to get our request for no egg in the udon correct. My grilled mackerel was delish.

Would I go again? Yes...but probably only a monthly or bi monthly basis.
