Azuma Japanese Restaurant @ Queensbay, Penang

My employee tag allows me to enjoy 10% discount  @ Azuma on any day. Thus, we went and try out Azuma which  managed by Right Potential Group. Before that, I received several positive comments over it. Most important of all, don't waste the benefits we deserve right?

Tamago Sushi (RM 1.80); simple, cheap and delicious.

Salmon Sushi (RM 3.80), the salmon was fresh and chewy. Nice!

Generous cut of white tuna for Shiro Maguro Sushi (RM 5.80)

The less sinful sushi -> Inari Yasai Sushi (RM 3.80). The inari was nice and the tangy mayonnaise was great!

The chili flakes kind of sushi is Sakura Ebi Sushi (RM 3.80). The sushi was topped with dry shrimp which tasted like Bakkwa with sesame. How come the 'Ebi' sound like Heh Bi which means dry shrimp in hokkien to me? The peach like sushi is Hokkigai Sushi (RM 5.80). The clam was so chewy that I can't even bite it into half. I have to put the whole piece into my mouth and chew it slowly. It tasted like scallop though but I like it.

Simply just want to try out their soft shell crab-> Soft Shell Crab Temaki (RM 6.80). The skin of the soft shell crab was scorched during the frying process and created a little bitter taste. Spotted the dark part of the soft shell crab in the picture? However, the non-scorched area was delicious.

Our main course Unayanagawa Don (RM 28.00). I would say the unagi just palatable. One big bowl may make one feel distasteful.

I think the soy sauce was a little bit too salty.

We were lucky that we came early. After we sit in, the queue just never stop.

The ambience was average. Simple and typical Japanese restaurant's design.

Azuma is strategically located at 2nd floor, south zone which just next to Harvey Norman. You see it when you takes south zone's escalator.
