Kushi Q specializes in yakitori (Japanese satay) and the word kushi refers to the skewers used in yakitori. Yakitori is a favorite snacks in Japan, mankind has yet to imagine a food that goes better with beer. Skewers of succulent bite-sized meat pieces dipped in an appetizing sauce, grilled over hot charcoal and all washed down with a cold beer.

Kushi Q is located on the lower ground floor of Tropicana City Mall, the interior was rather small but it was clean and comfortable.

Yes, that's right, instead of the famous charcoal that gives yakitori its phenomenal flavor, Kushi Q uses a high-tech auto rotating electric grill. Well, at least you won't smell like a walking satay stick after the meal!

For a complete meal, you might want to consider their set meals. Chicken set (RM 11.90), includes chicken breast with mentaiko flavor, chicken thigh with capsicum in Thai flavor, chicken thigh with leek and sesame in teriyaki flavor, a bowl of Japanese rice with chicken sauce and poached egg, a bowl of miso soup, a cup of refillable green tea and two slices of refreshing watermelon.

Japanese rice with chicken sauce and poached egg (RM 2 if ordered separately), if only both the rice and sauce was served piping hot. Instead, it was just warm and moistly drenched with the sauce.

From L-R: Crispy chicken in aroma spice, grilled shishamo, and beef with pineapple

Crispy chicken in aroma spice (RM 2), one of my personal favorites! It was deliciously succulent inside with an aromatic crispy exterior. Grilled shishamo (RM 3), it wasn't crispy and flavorful enough for me and for the same price, we could've gone for the scallops instead. Beef with pineapple (RM 2.50), these tender juicy beef cubes are wonderfully tasty!

We simply love mentaiko! Couldn't get enough of the chicken breast with mentaiko flavor (RM 2/stick), it was tender juicy covered with a mild mentaiko flavored mayo.

Same goes for the chicken breast with wasabi flavor (RM 2/stick)!

Crispy fish in aroma spice (RM 2.50/stick), light and fresh fish fillet coated with aromatic crispy breading, it was mouth watering...Chicken breast with aroma spice (RM 2), well marinated cubes of succulent chicken breast, the aroma spice was indeed addictive!

Verdict: Great place for a light simple meal, and Kushi Q is halal too!

Last visit (Oct 2010): They used to grill it only upon ordering but it's different now. Instead, now they just pre-heat the pre-grilled skewers. Plus, the cool grilling machine is no longer at this Tropicana City Mall branch. It just taste different and wasn't the same anymore, sad!

    I went to their outlet in Tropicana Mall today & saw A LOT of little cockroaches everywhere! Lots of cockroaches in the kitchen area especially where they hang their plastic bags for take-away orders & I even saw one in the glass container that displays the food! Needless to say, I will never go back to this place ever again!

    eeks! Wow that's pretty scary...good thing I didn't see any whenever I was there :x Hopefully the owner will do something about it, seldom see the owner in the restaurant anymore anyway.
