The Koh Grill and Sushi Bar is a cozy restaurant tucked away in the corner of Wisma Atria. Complete with the Japanese vibes and the open concept for their kitchen, the restaurant is sure to grab your attention as you walk past. The chefs expertly char the salmon over the open flame, visible to their customers. The restaurant is very well laid out, and gives the appearance of being extremely spacious and comfortable, with its interestingly placed mirrors. Overall, it was a restaurant environment you would not want to leave for a while.
Without much deliberation, we ordered the Shiok!! Maki!, the signature dish we had heard so much about. Needless to say, it did not disappoint. The dish was, while confusing, an extremely pleasant cacophony of flavours. The dish was presented as 8 rolls sitting on the cream sauce, topped with a generous heap of roe. Pickled ginger was placed on the side to accompany it.
The combination of eel and mayonnaise-like sauce was an absolute delight to our taste buds, although we did think the sauce was a bit too creamy and sour and left a not-so-pleasant aftertaste. While the roe was able to provide texture to the dish, we did find it a little overwhelming, as there was so much roe and the taste was quite overpowering.
The presentation of the sushi, was, arguably, better than the dish itself. The aesthetics were definitely enough to make your mouth start watering, and we could not wait to dig in.
The sushi costs $16.80, but we felt the portions were not worth the price we paid.
Overall, the sushi itself, besides the sauce and roe, was tantalizing and if you ever want to indulge yourself, this is the place to go!
