Tsuruya Japanese Restaurant is quite an established restaurant in Penang and has its fair share of regulars in the Bayan Lepas area. It's original restaurant is located at I-Avenue and it now has a branch at e-Gate and a sister restaurant at Queensbay Mall, the Tsurukame Shabu Shabu Restaurant.
We haven't been to Tsuruya for a while now and were impressed with how the restaurant was jam packed on a Saturday night. The decor is tasteful with some Balinese influence, which is quite unique for a Japanese restaurant. Seating arrangement is partly Japanese traditional tatami seating with raised floor.
They have quite a good selection and variety in their menu.
|Bento A (Kaki Guratan, Tsuruya Special Maki, Zaru Soba, Sashimi) - RM54|
|Bento B (Ebi Tempura, Unagi Kabayaki, Sashimi, Gohan) - RM48|
We ordered two of their most expensive bentos but I have to say the servings were fairly generous. Bento A is rather unique with my favourite cold soba and sizeable cheese baked oysters.
|Macha Ice Cream (RM5.50)|
