Tai Syou Izakaya Japanese Restaurant- Quaint, Cosy and Authentic

There is one street in Subang SS15 which is popular with many Japanese restaurants. It is the Jalan SS15/5a opposite of Ramsay Sime Darby Subang Medical Centre. One of the Japanese restaurants we often visit is Tai Syou Japanese restaurant.

I discovered this cost little Izakaya Japanese Joint that also serves quality fresh Sashimi!



They offer private tatami room and seating at the bar table (kaunta seki) Japanese style. It is an open kitchen concept so you can communicate with the chef and dine semi-omakase style.  This reminds me of some of the restaurants we visited in Japan. I managed to speak to the chef to get to know him better. As many people say, you get better food if you know the chef.


The owner of this restaurant is Chef Koide Masami from Hokkaido. He is a very experienced chef with over 36 years of experience working in various countries such as Japan, Singapore and Malaysia.

He was the executive chef of Renaissance Hotel and cooked for many celebrities and VIPs such as our current prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir. He was also a consultant for popular restaurants like Rakuzen and Jyu Raku.

Helping him in the restaurant is his son Chef Koide Keta who had studied in Singapore in food and beverages for two years.

His wife, Sally is helping managing the restaurant. This restaurant is a family affair and they have also many loyal staffs who worked with them for years.

Tai Syou Japanese restaurant opens for lunch and dinner. They are popular with their sashimi, yakitori, sushi, grilled fish and selection of sake.

They offer a wide selection of yakitori (Japanese skewers). The taste of their version of yakitori comes in a bit of salty after taste (which is quite common) and also hint of spiciness (of the black pepper). Some might find it strange but this is their style of yakitori. My advice is to eat the yakitori when it is hot!

The sashimi here is really good. The uii (sea urchin), salmon and otoro (tuna belly) is fresh and tasty. I love the texture of that otoro, it is fat and juicy. For sashimi lovers, make sure you visit this restaurant.

Chef Koide Keta is responsible for the sushi and the combination of taste and texture of their sushi is pretty good.

Lastly, I ordered their popular Japanese curry pork rice (which is quite hard to find in most Japanese restaurants). I love the strong flavour of the curry taste and the tender pork with the fragrant of the rice.

Overall, I enjoyed the food at Tai Syou Japanese restaurant and the service is good. With the valet parking facilities, it is convenient to dine in the evening as parking slots are hard to find. Most of the customers of Tai Syou are Japanese and they are regular customers. Most Japanese want quality and good food so they will select the best restaurants to dine. Do I need to say more?

Whether you are dine alone or for business, Tai Syou is the best of both worlds. Remember to sip your sake or enjoy their Japanese draught beer from the tap. Ask for their sake selection available, you won’t regret it!
