Sushi Mentai Ipoh

1. Sushi Mentai in Ipoh

The newly opened Sushi Mentai outlet in Ipoh was selected as the venue for my early birthday celebration with my family as I am hitting the road again later this week.

The bright orange façade of the corner lot on the same street as Maxis Centre in Greentown Business Centre caught our attention and we couldn’t wait for it to be opened for business.

5. Tori Katsu Don (chicken cutlet simmered with egg on rice) – RM12.80

Sushi Mentai is a familiar brand for those who have a liking for Japanese cuisine – after all, there are more than twenty outlets in cities such as Johor Bahru, Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya, Penang and now, it has finally arrived in Ipoh.

6. Tori Katsu Curry Rice (chicken cutlet and rice with curry sauce) – RM13.80

7. Salmon Teriyaki Don (grilled salmon with Teriyaki sauce on rice) – RM14.80

The brand is already well-known for bringing Japanese cuisine to the masses by keeping prices affordable without compromising on quality, taste or freshness. So, it was no wonder that the restaurant was packed when my family had our lunch there on the fourth day of its opening (opened on 17th Nov, 2015).

9. Agedashi Tofu (fried bean curd) – RM4.80

Most people preferred Sushi Mentai’s selection of fresh sushi from the conveyor belt. After all, each plate is only RM1.80 (as indicated by yellow-coloured plates) and RM2.80 (red-coloured plates).

13. Yasai Tempura (assorted vegetable tempura) – RM6.80

What my family had were from the à la carte menu. Obviously, compared to the conveyor belt, our food took a bit more time to prepare but we didn’t mind the wait.

15. Salmon Wrap (salmon & cucumber wrapped with rice sheet) – RM10.80 for 6 pieces

So, these photos were of our lunch for four a few days ago, with items that ranged from special maki (rolls) to yakimono (grilled, broiled or pan-fried), agemono (deep-fried) and of course, donmono (rice dishes).

16. Unagi Kabayaki (eel grilled with Kabayaki sauce) – RM18.80

17. Takoyaki (takoball) – RM4.50 for 5 pieces

As you can see, we opted for rice instead of noodles (menmono). The Chinese must have rice even while eating Japanese! Hahaha!

Looking at these photos, you can imagine how full we were. I was prepared for the bill to be above RM200, as prices on the menu are exclusive of 10% service charge and 6% GST.

20. all these for under RM200!

To my surprise, the bill came up to under RM200 for everything, which was just right for my budget. Will I return for another meal? Of course, since these dishes were just from a small selection of the menu. But then again, I’d probably go for the sushi-go-round next time!
