Had a wedding luncheon here and I would say this is a much better choice compare to the usual Chinese restaurant available around KL, in terms of value, quality, food variety and atmosphere. After discount (because of 'bulk reservation'), per head was only around ~RM90 with free plum wine, a reserved room for 100 people, dining time from 1130am to 4pm and of course the wide spread of food variety for every age category.

The elderly enjoyed the dim sum spread and variety of Chinese soup, the youngs had their sumptuous fill of sashimi & other japanese choice, and the kids of course Haagen Daaz & New Zealand ice-cream. The reserved room was convenient for us, as we can freely move around from table to table for close chat, and we even had our tea ceremony there.

A good recommendation for couples who fancy unconventional type of wedding luncheon/dinner, other than the usual 10-course "Yam Seng" meal in typical chinese restaurants.

It is very rare for me to give such a negative review for a restaurant, but this happens to be one of those times.

I recall many years ago, when Jogoya first opened - the quality & service was very good.I visited a couple years ago, but was shocked that the quality has significantly dropped.

This week, we decided to give Jogoya one last shot. It was a horrible mistake.

I don't know where to start. Service was bad, maybe it was because they hired all these foreign workers from Myannmar to do all the cooking and serving. Sorry, but they don't know how to cook, and they don't know how to give good service.

We ordered cooked food - and it either took a very long time to be served (ie. 15-25min) or they came over cooked / bland.

The oysters and raw fish - was not fresh. If you read past reviews, you will find the same "not fresh" comments.

And the prices have increased since the last time I visited - but I don't see why the prices should rise, when most of the staff are from Myannmar and the food quality has sunk to a new low.

Horrible dinner.

One of the most famous Japanese Buffet in the town. It has been the nation's all time favourite. It also has other food for those who does not fancy raw or particularly japanese food
