Fukuzushi Japanese Restaurant. Johor JB 福寿司

Fukuzushi-Japanese-Restaurant-Johor-JB-福寿司

I was invited to a private preview of Fukuzushi Japanese Restaurant 福寿司 at 163, Jalan Sutera, Taman Sentosa in Johor Bahru. I enjoyed the tasting which covered samplings from the restaurant's 300 item menu. The food was delicious and prices are reasonable. I am looking forward to Fukuzushi restaurant's official opening on 1 Oct 2017.

He worked 8 years in Chikuyotei (Mandarin Orchard), 6 years in Suntory (Delfi Orchard), and 7 years at Sushi Nogawa (Japanese Club). His mentors include renowned Japanese Masterchefs Kiyohito Harada, Kimura, and Nogawa.

Love the deep fried soft shell crabs, especially the roe filled ones. Every part of the crabs can be eaten, shells, legs, claws and all.

I love the hot, light, aromatic, gently savoury sweet soup.

Must try this Fuku Pizza (price RM30++).

It's a crispy rice crust topped with baked eel, salmon and prawn roe. Nice blend of savoury sweet flavours with soft and crisp textures.

Salmon Spicy Maki (price RM20++ for 5 pieces). I am not a big fan of sushi because it's often made with tightly packed starchy rice. But, the sushi at Kufuzushi are really good as they use good quality pearly Japanese rice.

Salmon Mayo Nigiri (price RM4 each).

👉 We enjoyed the dishes at Fukuzushi Japanese Restaurant and I would have love to rate it 4-Stars, if this was not a preview. I would love to come back to Fukuzushi, 3 months after it's opening on 1 Oct 2017 for a bona fide diner experience. I sense that this is a promising restaurant as the menu is extensive, ingredients are fresh, dishes are well executed, the food is delicious, environment is comfortable and prices are competitive.

Disclosure: Please note that this was an invited tasting.

  1. After reading this post, I give a try to this Resturant. It was indeed a huge disappointment. The Resturant was badly ventilated, I dk why? They were using Fans indoor. Gosh, how to eat sashimi in such environment??
    Anyway , there was many staff but they were all inexperienced. The food recommendated here we ordered all of them , but they were really not up to standard. I am very disappointed and hope the restaurant will strive to keep up the standards and dun disappoint their customers. The price charged is not equal to the food taste n quality. Hope my comments can allow the owner to rethink about the Resturant service n food . Good luck !

  2. Went for dinner today. The previous western/Malay restaurant located there was reviewed by Johorkaki. The setting is nice. However some kids were running around shouting. The parents fault actually. The food is good. Give it a try and form your own personal opinion

I firmly believe that taste is subjective and so, warmly welcome differing viewpoints as it makes this blog better :-D But, I disapprove negative comments that are anonymous or hide behind fake identities. I feel that that is unethical in the same way as speaking ill of others behind their backs. I look forward to all your comments :-D Thank you. (Date: 18 Dec 2015)
