Back then, we used to have sushi almost every week at Sushi Zanmai. There was hardly any long queuing, portions were bigger and cheaper. But now, you ought to expect loooooooonnnnnggggggg queues during lunch and dinner time. Even so, Sushi Zanmai is still our preferred place for good quality sushi at an affordable price - for sure putting Sushi King and Sakae Sushi out of business.

Instead of the usual soy sauce, you can opt for the sweet soy sauce which is my personal preference.

Stamina Roll (RM 12.80) - omelette sushi roll topped with unagi (roasted eel).

Dai Dai Roll (RM 12.80) - spicy crabmeat sushi roll topped with salmon and shrimp roe.

Soft shell crab maki (RM 6.80).

One of my favorite kiasu dish that I usually order, salmon or tuna maki (RM 4.80) - used to be only RM 3.80! It comes with big chunks of fresh salmon and for sure, you will not be treated with such generosity at Sushi King or Sakae Sushi.

Black caviar sushi (RM 3.80) and katsuo tataki (smoked bonito) sushi (RM 3.80).

Inari kanimayo yaki (crab meat roasted with mayonnaise in sweetened tofu skin) sushi (RM 4.80).

Spicy salmon maki (RM 4.80) - my latest favorite kiasu dish that comes with big chunks of salmon topped with mayonnaise and wasabi roe.

Kanimayo maki (crab meat mayonnaise) sushi (RM 6.80). We are talking about real snow crab meat here, not those crab sticks that do not actually contain any crab.

If sushi does not fill up your stomach, you should try chicken katsu udon (RM 10.80) which is used to be only RM 8.80! It comes with a bowl of udon noodle and chicken cutlet.

Plus, the chicken katsu comes along with some salad. Now you know why they have to increase the price due to the overwhelm demands from the kiasu people.

More money-saving tips when dining in Sushi Zanmai, try not to use their wet tissue, they will charge you for it. Ocha (green tea) for only RM 1 and it is refillable. Drinkable water used to be free but now it will be RM 1. Mayonnaise used to be free but now it is chargeable as well. argh!!...I still can't get over with the sudden changes, are you not earning enough yet?

Verdict: Up-to-date, I am still a happy returning customer and will come back again and again and again. Most important, you will get good quality freshly made sushi at an affordable price - hopefully they don't increase the price further! And I realized there were some significant differences in quality between different outlets, particularly Sunway Pyramid's outlet, it was bad!
