Aoki-Tei Japanese Restaurant (青木亭放题) at Sunway Nexis mall, Kota Damansara is popular place for eat all you can buffet. The price for the buffet dinner is RM 78++ for adult. All the food here are prepared when you order to maintain the fressness. There are many choices of Japanese food but we didn’t get to try all of them since there are only two of us. Lets see what we ate at Aoki-Tei buffet.
Aoki-Tei serves very fresh and thick sashimi.
Come to eat buffet must order the most expensive food such as this salmon shashimi. We also ordered Aoki-Tei’s house sake which is free flow with the buffet. The sake can be served hot or chilled. I personally prefer the chilled one.
Salmon sashimi at Aoki-Tei is very flesh and thick. Each plate has 5 thick cuts salmon and we finished 3 plates of serving.
Besides the salmon shashimi, we also try Aoki-Tei’s butter fish shashimi. Actually this is my first time eating butter fish shashimi. Taste delicious and butterly hence the name butter fish, I guess.
House sake that comes free flow with the Aoki-Tei buffet. We ordered one hot and one chilled.
We also ordered one grilled mackerel fish with salt (Saba Shioyaki). Grilled to perfection and served with a slice of lemon to enhance the taste.
Look at the crispy skin of the grilled mackerel. Crispy outside juicy inside. Definitely one of the must order at Aoki-Tei buffet.
Edamame, a common dish at a Japanese Restaurant. Eat more edamame as it is a healthy food which has no cholesterol but high amount of protein, calcium, iron and other vitamins and minerals.
Next, we also ordered a serving of this slice beef wrapped with spring onion. I like the slice beef but not a fan of the spring onion.
We also try the soba salad here at Aoki-Tei buffet. Both laupoh and me also don’t like the taste. Perhaps we are not used to it.
Chawan Mushi or Japanese steamed egg is my favourite in a Japanese restaurant. Aoki-Tei’s Chawan Mushi is savoury and delicious.
The is one of our favourite at Aoki-Tei buffet, the fried egg plant with sautéed fried chicken miso paste. What a long name. The Japanese name Nasu Dengaku is shorter though.
Before eating anything, we warmed our stomach first with this scallop soup with veggies. Japanese call this Hotate Soup. Our bowl of the soup is served with two scallops and some mushroom as well.
To balance our meal, we ordered this stir fried vegetables (Yasai Itame). The vegetables are fresh and crunchy.
Our last order of the buffet is this plate of delicious sizzling seafood of prawn, salmon and squid legs with spicy sauce.

We end our buffet with this wasabi ice cream. Personally I find the taste is a bit weird. There are many other desserts too but my stomach is already full from all the delicious food.
