Yakiniku (buffet) has become one of my regular dining-out meal in Bangkok. Upon seeing my blog post, Meng, a friend commented that yakiniku buffet is available in KL too, at ROCKU Yakiniku at Pavilion.
Today, I set to find out what ROCKU is all about. I am happy to report that it has an edge, versus the yakiniku buffet restaurants at Bangkok, as ROCKU also includes entertainment.
ROCKU originated from Singapore. Casual. Upbeat. Edgy. That’s ROCKU’S positioning. Food + Entertainment (Live band performances, Magician), can’t go wrong for a fun dining out experience. When I was there for lunch, there ain’t any peformances though.
ROCKU’S wifi password is ROCKUrocks, so I was wondering whether it’s meant to be pronounced as Rock-U (as in Rock You), but Kym, my friend thought that the pronounciation is Roc-Ku.
Well, I checked Japanese-English dictionary. Perhaps what Kym said is correct: Roc-ku and it means good.
There is a 100 minutes time limit for buffet, so we were naturally quite anxious when time was running out. The staff came around to check on our last order, around 5-10 minutes before our 100 minutes time limit. We continued eating past the 100 minutes, and there were no additional charges.
I thought that 100 minutes is more than enough, but not really, as we needed to grill our own food. 70 minutes into our grilling, the fire started to dim. The staff obliged with our request to change the steel wire mesh, and also added charcoal when we complaint about the (lack of) fire.
Meat and seafood, and miso soup and enoki mushroom, are to be ordered from staff.
Veges and other items such as salad, chawan mushi, fried stuffs, fruits, etc, are from the buffet table.
If you would like to make a reservation, it can be done online.
