My Experience at ORIBE

Went to Oribe Sushi for the second time on 20 December 2018 for a pre-birthday celebration. Reached a little early at 11.45pm.

I made a reservation at the counter for a better experience. We ordered 2 different sets – Iga and Oribe with plans to share.

In hindsight, I wish I had chosen the Omakase set. 

Iga –

  • Appetizer
  • Steamed Egg Custard
  • 8 pcs of the Chef’s Specialty Sushi
  • Sushi Roll
  • Miso Soup
  • Dessert

Oribe –

  • Appetizer
  • Sashimi
  • 2 Sides
  • Steamed Egg Custard
  • 5 pcs of the Chef’s Specialty Sushi
  • Miso Soup
  • Dessert

Arranged in no particular order, feast your eyes on the wonders of Omakase.

It means leaving it up to the chef to serve you.

The Chutoro and melt-in-your-mouth Otoro were the highlights for both the sashimi and sushi for me.

Every piece was meticulously prepared by Chef Yasu. He explained each dish as he served them right in front of us.

Review on Oribe

The ingredients were all really fresh. Seafood is flown in directly from Japan. They make their own wasabi and garnishes.

You can tell that the chefs and owners are passionate about Japanese food through their well thought out menus and pairing of foods.

The damage

The damage for two persons was RM542.90. It is pricey especially since we did not even go for the Omakase set.

Amex is accepted here for you cashback peeps.

Could’ve eaten free-flow wagyu at Hanare at an RM100 discount.  But! That being said, Oribe is well worth the price. The seafood served were fresh, very fresh and attention given by the chefs and staff were tip top.

If you’re planning to stop by Oribe, please do make a reservation in advance via the phone number above. Get them counter seats. Trust me. 

P.s. Use your hands when eating sushi. It’s the only way.
