Japanese 13 Course Meal for 6 Pax: Super Value for Money!

It feels so good to be back to my favourite Japanese restaurant recently to feast to my heart's content! I mean, how often do you get to enjoy 13 Japanese fusion dishes and all signature desserts in one meal? Only available at Hana Dining & Sake Bar, Sunway Pyramid!

Hana, located at the Oasis Boulevard (near Parkson entrance) in Sunway Pyramid, has been popular for its wide variety osake and sochu cocktails.  Interestingly, the menu here is a combination of 60% Japanese, 20% Taiwanese and 20% Western flavours. Read my previous review about Hana's Autumn Menu HERE.

Signature Course Meal
Salad + Appetizer + Makimono + Yakimono + Menrui / Gohan + Miso Soup + Dessert

RM130 for 2 pax (5 Dishes + 2 Desserts + 2 Soups)
RM280 for 4 pax (11 Dishes + 4 Desserts + 4 Soups)
RM450 for 6 pax (13 Dishes + 6 Desserts + 6 Soups)

Recently introduced in this quirky restaurant is the latest Signature Course Set Meal menu where you can try out different styles of dishes in one complete meal, ranging from Japanese appetizers and sushi to hot noodles dishes and grilled items. 

The set menu comes in 3 sizes-- For 2, 4 or 6 persons, covering a wide range of all-time favourite dishes in Hana. Perfect for sharing! For our 6 pax meal, we have 13 dishes in total, plus 6 individual portions of soup and dessert. Now let the feast begins! 

Salad (Pick 2 from 3)

Wafu Kaisen Salad (海鲜和风沙拉)

Salads come first as the palate opener-- The light, crispy Burdock Salad gives a nice crunch and pairs well with beer or wine, but if you prefer something sweet and tangy then the fruity seafood salad is a great option. 

Gobou Salad (牛蒡沙拉)

Appetizer (Pick 2 from 5)
Tsuke Shiro Maguro (橄榄蒜香腌白鲔鱼)

Next up are the house special appetizers which are unique and can rarely be seen elsewhere. For instance, the white tuna marinated with olive oil, garlic and special ingredients has just the right amount of fats that melt perfectly in the mouth with oceanic freshness. 

The Shredded Duck and Cucumber in Hoisin Sauce is equally savoury and addictive as a light bite before tucking into the main meal. 

 Kamo Kyuuri (芥子合鸭先付)

Take Sashimi Moriawase (筍綜合生魚片)

The star of the day is the huge platter of freshly air-flown sashimi, comprising 6 types of raw fish-- Tuna, salmon, scallop, squid, tuna belly and prawn. For the freshest flavour, be sure to visit Hana on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Makimono (Pick 2 from 5)

Salmon on Fire Maki (三文鱼火焰卷)

As for the maki sushi rolls, the sizeable portion can easily fill us up as each roll comes in 6 to 8 huge pieces, so generously filled with yummy goodies and compact! 

Look at the beautifully torched salmon roll, how can I resist that! The salmon slice is slightly cooked, retaining its moist and smooth texture, and goes well with the aromatic garlic mayonnaise. If you prefer something cheesy, the Cheese Maki definitely satisfies your craving. 

Cheese Maki (奶酪起士卷)

Agemono (Pick 2 from 4)
Chicken Karaage (唐扬炸鸡)

Moving on to the deep-fried items, classics like crispy marinated chicken and assorted tempura are pretty standard here. Nevertheless, they easily get us hooked as they give delicious crunch upon each bite. 

Tempura Moriawase (综合天妇罗)

Yakimono (Pick 2 from 4)
Mentaiko Nagaimo Yam (山药明太子烧)

For grilled items category, both the two dishes we choose are served in sizzling hot plates with delicious aroma wafting in the air. Between the Crabstick Omelette and Japanese Yam with Mentai Sauce, I just couldn't decide which do I prefer because I love both the soft texture of the egg and crunchy yam chunks. 

Kani Tamagoyaki (蟹肉玉子烧)

Menrui / Gohan (Pick 2 from 4) 
Santen Mori Soba (传统日式三色面)

Finally we come to the end of our meal where we have the handmade tri-colored cold soba and claypot garlic fried rice along with miso soup. Love the subtly flavoured noodles, especially when dipped into the slightly salty dipping sauce. 

Garlic Chahan (日式蒜香炒饭)

Miso Soup

Dessert (Pick 6 from 4)
Although we are already full to the brim, we just can't say No to the signature homemade desserts here. Silky smooth matcha cake, light tofu cheesecake, creamy white sesame ice cream and rich bittersweet green tea ice cream-- all of them are so luscious, so good!

Tofu Cheesecake (豆腐起司蛋糕)
Raspberry Matcha Cake (抹茶树梅蛋糕)

Shiro Goma Ice Cream (白芝麻冰淇淋)
Matcha Ice Cream (抹茶冰淇淋) 

Overall, it is a splendid dinner well spent with good food and great companion. The set meal is just nice for sharing, recommended for those who want to be surprised by different flavours that you might not have tried before.

If you feel like staying a little longer, why not head to the sake bar and sip on a glass or two?

1. For a set of 13 dishes, 6 soups and desserts for 6 pax, I think it offers a good value for money. It is a different dining experience for sharing the dishes among friends and family.
2. Quality and taste wise, I have no complaints at all. Good to try several creatively crafted dishes that suit our Asian tastebuds. 
3. Recommended: Salmon Roll on Fire, Tsuke Shiro Maguro, Santen Mori Soba, Tofu Cheesecake and White Sesame Ice Cream
