I last visited Kuru Kuru a couple of years ago. As there is a recent Groupon deal, I searched for latest reviews to see if the restaurant is worth a re-visit before I make the purchase.
Was very apprehensive with the earlier review by Dinggowhere. Nonetheless, decided to check out the restaurant yesterday.
I am happy to say that my apprehension dissipated when the 1st 2 dishes arrived, which were sashimi (salmon, yellowtail & swordfish) & pork cutlet. The former was cold & fresh. The latter, though thin, was decent.
The rest of the dishes (makis, various sushi, shishamo, ebi tempura, chicken wings, gyoza, garlic fried rice ) were OK.
My only gripes were :
Salmon teriyaki/ Salmon in butter sauce - very small pieces for each diner. Some were moist, others overdone & dry.
Chawanmushi - bland
Grilled Saba - skin was nicely grilled, but again, dry.
Sakura dumpling - this is a dried hard mess that I had to spit out. The dorayaki is a better choice than the dumplings
Ice cream - all ok ecept the vanilla, which has strong artificial taste
Salmon roe sushi - overly salty & not so fresh.
Nothing I can fault with. They brought pots )for hot ocha) & jugs (of drinks) so that you can re-fill yourself.
One of the wait staff (I think a male Filipino) even wished my husband 'Happy Father's Day'. Well, it was just a lunch, not a special celebration. Gesture appreciated, though.
So, this place is still worth a visit.
