Ajisen Ramen - Japanese Restaurant & Noodle Bar @ Giza Mall

Sunway Giza Shopping Mall at Kota Damansara seems to be the latest craze in town. Lot's of eateries, a couple of pubs, a supermarket, karaoke center and more eateries. It's living hell there especially looking for a parking space. There's no night nor day at this place as it's always busy.

It was a Friday night and the crowd has started to build up. Most of the restaurants were full with patrons full of the weekend crowd. Since there's so many restaurants to choose from we decided to dine at 'Ajisen Ramen'. This outlet is it's latest outlet and the 3rd in KL.

The first outlet is in 1 Utama Shopping Mall and the second outlet at Sunway Pyramid.

The setup of this place is simple and nice. But a little stuffy as the kitchen is sharing the same premise even though it's separated with glass partition. The smoke gets in your eye.... LOL.

First to come is the 'Chicken Katsu Ramen Set' (RM12.80). This noodle set consists of soup based noodle and a plate of fried chicken breast cut into bite size and 2 slices of watermelon. The noodle is slightly overcooked but the soup is really delicious. This bowl of noodle is filled with seaweed, bean sprout, half an egg and Japanese noodle. The Chicken is 100% over-fried. The meat is tough and dry and it doesn't taste good. And the portion is very little.

Next came the 'Pork Garlic Set' (RM14.80) which consists of pork fried with green & red capsicum and a plate of Gyoza. The pork tasted something like the Chinese version Kung Po. Nothing to shout about. Tasted very salty but goes well with rice. But the texture of the meat is very soft as if the meat is not fresh. I totally dislike this dish. The 'goyza' tasted good and it was being snapped up in a split of a second.

Do you know that Goyza originated from China? Yeah! It was introduced to Japan in the 17th century and since then the Japanese loved it so much that it made it theirs. LOL.

Conclusion. Food is below par, very disappointed. At least there's some consolation - the soup and the goyza  is worth mentioning. And the service is really good! That's about it. Don't think you'll see me going into this place again unless they perform a miracle.
