I always like to drink green tea when I visit Japanese Restaurant. It is good for our health and great to accompany while eating Japanese food. I do like their service on topping up the customer’s green tea supply in Kuru Kuru.

Here’s some of the dishes offered by Kuru Kuru Japanese Restaurant:

Tried out a few of the appetizers from Kuru Kuru. I do like Baby Octopus and Peach with Mixed Salad. Peach with Mixed Salad tasted sweet. I will recommend that people can try Peach with Mixed Salad.

Sliced Raw Food 刺身 (Sashimi):

Assorted Platter

Assorted Platter 刺身盛り合わせ (with Salmon 鮭, Tuna – maguroまぐろ, Octopus – takoタコ, Seabass -suzukiスズキ )

Assorted platter with a few different types of raw fish slices (刺身sashimi).

To me, every Japanese meal, everybody should eat some raw fish slices dipped with wasabi and soy sauce. According to Kuru Kuru, their soy sauce is stirred with wasabi to have a certain degree of spiciness.

It will be good to order assorted platter with a few different types of raw fish slices.

My overall experience of dining at Kuru Kuru Japanese Restaurant is good. Staff are quite nice and friendly.  Good service. And great dishes.

I would recommend people to try Soft Shell Crab with Wasabi Mayo handroll, crispy salmon skin mat roll sushi and soft shell crab sushi rolls, assorted platter for fish slices, prawn tempura, scallops with Cod Roe & Cheese, Grilled mackerel and Green Tea ice cream or Yuzu sorbet along with Green tea.

Of course, there are many more wonderful dishes that Kuru Kuru is offering as well in the menu for people to consider to try.

Do note that $5 will be charge for per every 100gm of wastage. So I do not encourage people to waste food.
