Small items from the buffet
Hanare, “retreat” in Japanese, lives up to its name with its cool calmative setting. Located near the busy Jalan Ampang and Tun Razak junction in the noisy city centre, this Japanese restaurant breathes serenity and relaxation. Faint ambience music, dark anodyne hues and natural stone and wood lit by discrete down lighting compose the ambience. Sundays are an enticing time for a visit for the buffet brunch including free flow of chilled sake, beer and non-alcoholic beverages alongside some finely prepared Japanese cuisine.

In an approach unique to the Japanese, presentation impresses, with every detail thoughtfully taken care of. Tableware is earthen and customized to each course. Chopsticks are not only coupled with a patterned wrapping but also tied elegantly with a bow. Place mats are embroidered with the name of the restaurant in English and Japanese and various ceramic serving vessels are matched to each drink. The sake carafe is a pleasingly aesthetic sight with its transparent glass and thin lines of blue with a custom made receptacle for crushed ice to chill the rice liquor without diluting it. The sounds of a chef chopping away on the teppan barbecue is akin to the sounds of taiko drums and even the Japanese chef himself adds to the ambience as he clunks around in traditional wooden geta sandles.

Hand picked seasonal items are air-flown in daily from the famous Tsukiji Market in Tokyo, so you are assured of only the best. Live stations ensure everything is freshly prepared – not your usual buffet style food that is left sitting for hours, but hand made on the spot nearly everything.  We couldn’t resist multiple servings of the buttery sashimi, teppanyaki and tempura. With one of our favourite cuisines, Japanese, coming fast and fresh, and our sake carafe being topped up without delay, we were jubilant diners this Sunday afternoon.

    1. I agree! That's my only complaint - should be an all afternoon type spot. :-)
