Occasion: Valentine's Day celebration with family & friends!
Overall comment: Edo Ichi, albeit much mentioned, didn't impress me. It's expensive (in my personal opinion), portion is small, & taste isn't all that fantastic. I still prefer Nihon Kai on the overall. Affordable, generous portion & taste of food is consistent all this while :)
Halal: Pork-Free only (Alcohol/Sake is served)
ST, JG, & I went all the way to Solaris Dutamas to try out this Edo Ichi Japanese Restaurant. Thankfully, it wasn't too difficult to locate the place. Paid parking is quite an abundance (basement), but depending on where you park, you may have to walk a wee bit more to get to the restaurant.
The restaurant's ambiance is not very Japanese, but it is comfortable enough for a meal. Their Set Lunch menu makes the food look 'oh-so-good', & even with only 2-handful of choices to select from, we had a hard time to select what we wanted. For me, it's the price issue...hahaha...quite expensive for my budget at that point of time! The main menu has more ala-carte options to order, but as usual, set meals are more pocket-friendly & you get to try more things at one go.

I spent Valentine's Day 2011 with my friends at a Japanese restaurant & believe it or not, the same night itself, we were out for another Japanese meal! The former wasn't pre-planned, so I didn't really have a choice.
I booked a place for 8 at Nihon Kai in hopes to try out their Valentine's Day set meal. Unfortunately, it was sold out! *surprise suprise* I was glad for the restaurant manager who requested my assistance to promote the Valentine' Day set meal, but I wish I could get to try out what I have promoted earlier!
Here are some of the other dishes that we ordered. I've a write-up on some of the dishes in my previous posts, so do check it out for my review & prices.
Verdict: A meal for 3 persons at Edo Ichi costs us RM148.50 (and we felt like we have not eaten - it wasn't filling), while a meal for 8 persons at Nihon Kai costs RM345.18 (we struggled to finish all the food! The set meals were really worth-eating)
