Sushi Oribe was founded in December 2014, run mainly by Japanese Chefs and Malaysian Chef. Omakase is a Japanese phrase, that means "I'll leave it up to you'. It is a formal Japanese dining in which guests leave themselves in the hands of a chef and receive a meal which is seasonal, elegant, artistic and uses the finest ingredients available. Sushi Oribe's elegant atmosphere provides the perfect place for a fine dining experience. Its warm interior tones laced with ambient lighting exude quiet relaxation. Master Chef, Chef Naoya and Second Chef, Chef Hiroyuki keep in mind to bring customers an unforgettable moment by creating the most unique dishes while providing the best service.
Their Omakase changes seasonally from Spring, Summer, Autumn to Winter. Lunch menu ranges from RM268++/pax, RM380++/pax and from RM700++/pax for Special Omakase. Dinner menu ranges from RM328++/pax, RM498++/pax and from RM700++/pax for Special Omakase. We booked the Special Omakase (RM900++/pax) 2 weeks in advance due to certain ingredients requested for the best omakase fine dining experience. 100% opt for the counter seats so that we get the best service by the friendly and attentive Chef Nao.

I was extremely excited and satisfied with each dishes served by the chefs whereby I don't usually get these ingredients in other Japanese restaurants. This omakase was definitely a unique and fun dining experience with Chef Nao's friendliness. Apologized for not being able to take a photo of those 3 exquisite dishes, must be too excited until I had forgot about it and couldn't wait to pop it right into my mouth. Another dish that I missed out was Hirame sashimi with uni sauce and Kanpachi with Yuzu Miso sauce which tasted really good as well. Price wise, it was really pricey but worth the premium ingredients and dining experience. I guarantee you won't regret and will definitely enjoy each bite. Check out their menu in the link below!
