Review: Genji Japanese Restaurant, Hilton Petaling Jaya

At our recent stay at the Hilton Petaling Jaya, we decided to have lunch at the on-site Japanese restaurant after hearing some good things about from our friends.  It was about 1.30pm when we got there so the restaurant was pretty empty.

The restaurant was having a tempura promotion so I decided to have the “tempura set meal” where as lydia had one of their bento meals. Needless to say, the tempura set meal consisted of tempura inspired dishes. In included a salad, tempura sushi roll, assorted tempura, rice cake, miso soup and tempura bananas and ice-cream for dessert. The food itself was pretty good but wasn't out of the ordinary or mind blowing. By the time I finished the huge tempura sushi roll, I was actually already pretty full which might have made my judgements of the other dishes a bit off.

Tempura Sushi Roll


Lydia's bento box consisted of chicken teriyaki, tempura, some sashimi and saba. The saba was especially fresh and perfectly cooked which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The meal ended costing us about 250 ringgit which is pretty expensive for a meal in Malaysia. In summary, we did like the food but nothing really stood out that would make us rush back for another visit.


  1. What a coincidence! I saw your post on Trip Advisor for your trip reports about Kazakhstan, and I see that you were in Kuala Lumpur, and are originally from Malaysia. I just published a post about my stay in Kuala Lumpur (
