Overall comment: Fresh meats & variety of seafood that's worth your money, especially if you can really eat (a lot) within 100 minutes & if you enjoy dining with some entertainment of live band/magician show on stage. It was a really fun dining experience for me :)
I was really excited to be here at Rocku Yakiniku, 1 Utama, last weekend with AP as the restaurant was also hosting the finale of a singing competition (top 10 finalists of the WILLIAM x ROCKU) & had many OneFM DJs hosting/attending the event as well :D
Rocku Yakiniku landed on the shores of Malaysia 2 years ago with their 1st outlet at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur opened on 13th December 2014. A year after i.e. last year, they started their 2nd outlet at 1 Utama, which has since gained much popularity among residents in Petaling Jaya & its surrounding areas.
The restaurant boasts of "a restaurant with daily entertainment" concept. Diners can expect to enjoy performances from live bands every evening, with magician shows taking over the stage every Saturday at 1 Utama & every Friday at Pavilion KL.
Each diner will be given a 'ticket' upon paying for the Japanese BBQ buffet, which will indicate the time of entry (I think), so that when the 100 minutes is up, other diners waiting in line outside the restaurant can get an opportunity to enjoy their meal at the restaurant when your table is cleared. I thought this is a pretty good concept as those waiting in line will know how long they need to wait until the next table is available & if they can't wait, they can go off to another restaurant to satisfy their hunger pangs ;)
There will be occasions where the entertainment is just too good to leave once the 100 minutes is up, so diners can actually pay the RM9.90++ for each additional 20 minutes to stay on & enjoy the performances/ continue eating!
