Hana Dining & Sake Bar (Sunway Pyramid Mall - Bandar Sunway)

Hana Dining & Sake Bar may have opened their doors just a month ago, but let me tell you that they are definitely making their strong presence known amongst near and far customers who throne Sunway Pyramid Mall on a regular basis. I am one of them. I am one of the familiar faces in this ever popular mall. Primarily for retail therapy, and once I am done, I make it a point in checking out the eateries prior to returning home. On this day, it was particularly for one specific reason. This invited dining experience in Hana Dining & Sake Bar. Walking into their sake bar which is across the dining area, my-my-my, what a cozy, classy and spacious set-up. Allowing my sight to wonder around for taking its moment of awing at the ambiance, honesty, I yearned for the blueish sake cocktail, don't ask me what and what not its made of, I didn't, sorry guys, find out, sipped into by fellow blogger. For me, alcohol at this hour of the day is a big no-no. Also, knowing myself better, a glass of cocktail will not be the end of the road. So, the safest bet I decided, as a true and true coffee lover, is  settling for a hot cuppa of coffee. Not a letdown. Not at all. A concoction of super smooth frosty, creamy milk and punchy coffee brew, every bit of cappuccino sincerely appreciated, before we were pleasantly welcomed into the dining area. 

Truly resembling a modern and up-notch Japanese style restaurant, our dining experience began the moment Hana Master Chef Thomas professionally torched the Salmon On Fire (RM28.00). Salmon On Fire followed by the rest dishes which popped up one after the other. Let me now share and show you each and every item I sampled and then of course, I shall nail those that were the winners for Nava K's tastebuds.      
Squid Stuffed With Preserved Cucumber (RM25.00). 
Oyamaimo Shake Maki (RM32.00)
Charcoal Cheese Special California Roll (RM25.00)
Chef’s Olic Tuna Marinate (RM25.00)
Hawaiian Shake Harasu Maki (RM33.00)
Engawa Don (RM38.00)
Seaweed Boletus Pasta (RM18.00)
 Deep Fried Nanban Chicken (RM18.00)
Crispy Cod Fish Layered With Sweet Potato (RM28.00)
 Grilled Lamb English Cut With Ponzu Soy Sauce (RM38.00)
Japanese Style Crab Meat Omelet (RM22.00)
Crispy Salmon Skin Salad (RM25.00)
Layered Chicken And Egg Teriyaki (RM10.00)
Cold udon with seafood and sesame sauce (RM12.00)
These cleverly invented dishes I must say were a splendor for their sheer sumptuousness, as well as an affordable fine dining meal. Unsure I am if you are agreeing, I will still go ahead by reinforcing  again that these dishes were sincerely a delight. However, as a small eater, I am, if you see my size, you will pretty much get the shape of my picture, my tummy couldn't really, no matter how hard I tried, accommodate the last four dishes. What a waste right? I know. What to do? Taste-wise, in no particular random order please, for someone like me enjoy salmon to its core, I must reckon that salmon on fire, squid stuffed cucumber, charcoal cheese roll and crispy salmon skin salad were the biggest winners. Crispy salmon skin salad mainly stood out for its utter crispy burst, and of course, olic tuna, nanban chicken and crispy cod fish with sweet potato couldn't be doubted for their juiciness and tenderness. Olic Tuna may not be a dish for someone like me who is still learning to appreciate cold dishes, though, indeed, it was praised by the other foodies. I too must agree its a clear reminiscence of how carefully a cold dish is put together. The sweet spicy sauce paired with nanban chicken, undeniably, a class of its own for dipping the crispy crunchy bite size chicken, was the other fancy of Nava K.

Once we had heartily tucked in, Mr. Eddie, the owner joined us for making it known that Hana Dining & Sake Bar prides itself by providing customers with the best fresh food, made with fresh ingredients.Salmon trout air flown from Norway. Additionally, all ingredients and recipes are sourced from Taiwan and air-flown weekly from Japan for the 60 types of sauces and condiments for the 130 types of dishes and 28 sets of value meal featured on their menu.
Mr Eddie also stressed that Hana Dining is the concept and idea mooted from Taiwan, known as Aplus Dining Sake Bar, and the one important clue for first time sake drinkers is hearing out the suggestion by the great people in Hana Dining& Sake Bar.
