After my initial shock that japanese fast food will still set you back RM40 per pax, I decided sod it and went to Yuzu (well the Lady decided to sod it when it came to saving my money and actually demanded for some good japanese food and i obliged).
Apparently under the same management as Ninja Jones which can be quite a walk, i was glad that for one, people don't have to queue to get in and that we have to sit so closely to each other that we can participate in each other's conversation.
A minute into the menu and i thought oh no, this meal would cost way MORE than RM40 per pax judging from all their wagyu and fresh fish.
I suppose the last page saved me (at least) as there have value for money sets.
Like this Yuzu set at RM48 that offers a bite of almost everything.
Soft and smooth chawan mushi
4 pieces of sashimi, cant complain at all
5 slices of sushi, hand rolled and not from the machine. A plate of this ala-carte would set you back well close to half the price of the set.
A bland salad that i later ate with my beef
Beef cubes that tasted oh so yum and succulent
Tempura too, my latest must order item when i eat japanese, not healthy but can't resist.
With that you still got the teapot soup, pickles and tofu too!
The amount that they serve in the set was almost obscene compared to what you can get for RM45 on the ala-carte menu:
Wagyu Beef Cubes- Don. Juicy cubes of grilled beef and rice, what else can you ask for?
If thats not enough, why not a riceless softshell crab maki?
Vegetables and Softshell crab, a tasty combination.
By now, everyone can probably do the maths and realise yes, the meal does cost more than my fast food meal but for the quality and service, RM 120 for the final meal is so much more worthwhile paying than RM80 at a fast food concept store. However RM 40 is indeed 50% more than the RM80 spent.
Then again, the whole issue of what is worth paying will forever and ever be subjective but i think in my case, i can safely say i enjoyed the meal than the previous one.
Address and contact number:

Verdict: 4 stars out of 5 stars. Value for money set which i am not going to complain about, just in case they increase the prices or take it out altogether. Although ala-carte items do dent the wallet quite abit.
