Hanare @ The Intermark

Fresh, succulent Japanese food in a pleasant ambience, Hanare @ The Intermark gets its fresh seafood from the Tsukiji market in Tokyo. Staying true to only serving freshly shucked oysters and never frozen ones, Hanare is one of my favourite Japanese restaurants to visit for buffets. The buffet available on weekends offers all you can eat Australian wagyu beef, prawns, scallops and salmon for RM148++ per pax from 12.00pm to 2.30pm.
