If you have bored on Jogoya, Tenji, House of Buffet (previously Yaki Yaki), Seoul Garden etc, why not give a try to Daidomon Japanese BBQ buffet located at the Great Eastern Mall, Jalan Ampang.

At the main entrance
Now, lets check to their menu. Daidomon Washoku and Yakiniku buffet? Any one know whats this superb name stand for? Inside this menu is the fresh foods which are made upon ordering. You can make any order from this menu UNLIMITED.
Sashimi and beef sashimi. Japanese food lovers will be delighted by these sashimi but as for me, small portion is just enough for me as I don't really eat raw foods.
Sushi. Usually, I will order the sushi and remove the ice as the rice will make me full. xD. From this menu, we can learn a lot basic Japanese sushi name. Let's practice:
- Shake = salmon
- Ebi = prawn
- Tako = octopus
- Tamago = sweet egg
- Inari = sweet bean curd
- Unagi = roasted eel
- Kani = crab meat
Check out their special dishes such as Dachou (boneless ostrich meat), lamp nakaochi (lamb intercostal) etc.
Sausages and seafood.
The limitations of this buffer is that their ice cream wasn't as 'branded' as other places which uses Baskin Robbins, Haagen Dazz etc. However, it wasn't really a big deal as you have sufficient supply of this ice cream and no need to queue up long for the ice cream.
You will be given Hotate (scallops) and Kaki Butter (Oyster with butter) each per person for the first servings only.
Enjoying the precious scallops and oyster.

Overall, for the price of RM 63 nett for a dinner buffet, the price is reasonable. I would say there are not many varieties of food compared to Tenji as well as the dessert, but the price wise is of course cheaper.
I would say not many people aware of this buffet restaurant. The number of customers here wouldn't be as crowded as other buffet restaurants (except House of Buffet). Thus, you will enjoy the privacy and ease of dining.
For dinner buffet (Fridays, weekends and public holidays) - the one I had
Price per person : RM 53.90
Miscellaneous charge: RM 1.00
Service charge : 10% @ 5.39
Tax : 5% @ 2.70
Total : RM 62.99
If you want for a cheaper rate, dine in from Mondays to Thursdays. It's RM 10 cheaper at RM 43.90 ++ per person. (Please note that the price stated here was months ago and a recent check at time or writing, the price had increment of RM 2).
For parking, you may park at inside the Great Eastern Mall. The rate is based on per hours but after 6 or 7 pm, it is fixed rate.
