Sushi Zanmai at VivaCity

February 25th, 2016 · 2 Surrendered

At last! Sushi Zanmai is here in Kuching in VivaCity.


Have been hearing so much about it from friends in West Malaysia with good feedback. I’m glad to say that it’s really good comparing to the other two sushi establishments in Kuching.

I’ve been there 4 times. First three times were good, the fourth time was a bit disappointing because the sushi wasn’t properly made, the rice crumbled, couldn’t hold it with chopsticks at all. I hope the next time if I do go over again, it won’t be like this again. Nevertheless, the ingredients used are still much better than the other competitors, tasted great too.

Left: Unagi Kabayaki (Small, RM24.80).
Right: My favourite, Salmon Zanmai (RM29.80) consists of salmon, salmon belly, broiled salmon, smoked salmon, and salmon roll.


Left: Not sure what this is called, the thing on top are scallop. This is from the conveyor belt and cost RM7.80, the most expensive plate on the belt.
Right: Spicy Niku Ramen (RM15.80 for chicken, RM18.80 for beef).


Left: Chicken Gyoza (RM14.80).
Right: Midori Salmon Roll (RM18.80).


Last but not least, Spicy Spider Roll. I forgot to take note of the price. We’re expecting this to be sprinkled with chili flakes but no… It doesn’t look spicy at all! Apparently, the spiciness is from the mayonnaise. The top was garnished with deep fried crab stick strips.

Conclusion, I don’t feel like going to other sushi franchise anymore. This will be my first choice. The prices are reasonable too.

    I’ve never tasted Sushi Zanmai even though I fancy Pasta Zanmai a lot, lol. Not sure why, but I don’t fancy sushi on conveyor belts. =/

    Ciana, I don’t fancy conveyor belt sushi also now, normally I order ala carte unless something interest me there but most of the time, no…
