True to its name umi kara shinsen (fresh from the sea), the Bluefin Tuna Nakaochi is served still intact to the bone alongside fresh wasabi and soy sauce. It gives a unique rich taste of fish and a subtle sweetness to the palate.

Diners can opt for a half slab tuna priced at RM300 or a full slab priced at RM550.

Another perfect delight for sushi aficionados, patrons can also enjoy Kama Toro, a flesh collar area of a tuna.
