The food taste excellent and the portions are good. The only room for improvement I would say to provide the small bowl plate for people to mix wasabi and soy sauce early on table. Rather than the need to ask.

Loved everything about Kingu Kongu! The only comment is that I hope Kingu Kongu would have enough stock of the menu items until it closes for the day. We were there still quite early but all the donburi and kong maki items were already sold out. Other than that, we had a great time at Kingu Kongu!

Hi! Kingu Kongu has become my favourite Japanese & I’ll definitely make a more frequent visit there. But there are a few things that can improved, taste wise :) the Yaki Nasu wasn’t great bcs the eggplant wasn’t grilled enough & some of them were quite tough. For Salmon Tataki, the lotus bits were really burnt & it overpowered the salmon (but the salmon tasted amazing still!). Hope these are helpful bcs I’m looking forward to having more meals there :)

Food wise, everything we had was good except for the umami fries. It was underwhelming, having only the bonito flakes as a topping and mayo dip - thought it wasn't worth the price. Also disappointed to find out that the mentaiko rice isn't part of the ala-carte menu as it should be. Service wise, considering that we came in for the 7:00PM buka seating, we were served very quick and had little to wait on the rest of the food - that was very impressive considering the crowd that came in for buka. Although towards the end, the servers were not very attentive to the first two seats near the window.. It was very hard to get them over to enquire on the menu and to ask for the bill that we had to personally go over to them to ask on the menu. If not, everything else is good! Will definitely come back!

I had a great time at Kingu Kongu. The service was great - fast, friendly and attentive service staff. I scored 9 for food because limited choice for ramen and their seafood hotplate was served with cheese sauce like (tasted off a bottle kind).

It'll be great if there's a room/ space that can fit 10 people comfortably. We were initially arranged into 1 vip room but it was too tight. Had to pay RM50 to get the other vip room next door for all of us to sit comfortably. I don't think the fee was necessary as one room was obviously not big enough for us.

The miso soup lacks miso. They should put more miso in the soup for the price that they're charging. The soy sauce which they provided is quite salty. Not sure what brand that is, but they should use Kikkoman.

Ramadhan set :- Tuna tataki : sedap gilaa tak muak pun, no 1 dish Tamago mentai rice : biasa je nasi letak telor petak atas yg rasa normal sahaja Salmon pad ka prao pizza : sedap, tapi takde lah mcm nak order lagi. Dia mcm tortilla ada salmon masak padkaprao, pastu topped with telo puyuh goreng Saba shiroyaki : biasa je, ikan saba (mackerel) bakar, dihidang dgn lemon (lebih kurang mcm ikan kembung bakar kosong) Okra bonito yaki : biasa sangat. Bendi yang overcooked, dipadankan dgn teriyaki sos dan ditaburkan bonito flakes Mushroom yaki : biasa sangat, rasa sos teriyaki Smoked duck yaki : biasa je, standard smoked duck cam masin masin gitu, nasib baik hidang 2 je, sorang satu, kalau tak, muak Chicken teriyaki : biasa jugak hahahahah, ayam disaluti sos teriyaki Spicy Seafood hotplate : biasa je, sizzling je gempak Rendang beef maki: paling last rank utk saya, maybe rendang nya tidak begitu kena, meja sebelah pun tak habis rendang ______________________________________ Special salmon truffle bomb: sedap, dalam ada potato Salmon mentai ball : sebenarnya sedap, tapi too much creativity sampai rasa a bit muak, thus prefer salmon mentai biasa atau salmon nishoku Overall: Worth the try, tapi maybe kena pilih ala carte instead of set

i love the experience there..love the ambiance..food quality is superb however not many options. i took private room..which very convience to my family needs..we ordered set A which all foods served were nice and delicious. however the options were very limited. not enough sushi selections..even Maki selections also very minimal..Japanese food is popular with soup and chawamushi, however there was none to wash down our throat..no ramen, no rice..lastly after all courses served, the food should be ended with dessert, which no selection at all..perhaps the restaurant is new, i just hope with beautiful setting as it is, they can improve their food selections in future.
