Hokkaido Ichiba at the Gardens Mall, KL
Although both restaurants are under the same Group but somehow the quality of food here is somewhat lower and the air in the restaurant smells musty. The rice does not taste like Japanese rice at all. I like my rice to be soft but this bowl of rice is way overcooked so it is too mushy. Some of the condiments like the julienned daikon is dry at the edges meaning that it has been prepared and left there for too long. In summary, I won't be eating here again and I will have to make my way to Kura to eat the exact same set meals at the same prices.
