Good goingTried out this new Japanese restaurant in Uttara called Nagasaki. It's on Road 6, Sector 1 - essentially the goli next to Fakhruddin's restaurant and very close to Scholastica.
Very good decor and an original Japanese setting. The owner is Japanese and so is the chef. The food was quite good I must say. Was good to have some sushi after a while.
We had a large platter of sushi (12 pieces), shrimp tempura (7 pieces) and fried chicken (7 skewers). They also served complimentary appetizers and miso soup. The bill came down to BDT 2,500, but with an additional 20% (VAT and service charges), we ended up paying around BDT 3,200. There were two of us.Good going
So what was the damage (to the wallet I mean) and based on what item?
I'm a tempura fan myself...
Thanks for the rundown.We had a large platter of sushi (12 pieces), shrimp tempura (7 pieces) and fried chicken (7 skewers). They also served complimentary appetizers and miso soup.

So all in all, quite an expensive meal. But then again, it's all relative, if you asked me. Considering how prices in Dhaka have sky-rocketed in recent times, I'd say it was like the average restaurant in Gulshan. This is 'probably' the only authentic restaurant of its kind in Uttara and that too, without falling within the most popular cuisine types, i.e. Chinese and Thai. Therefore, will be interesting to see how it does over the longer term.
The reason I say it is Bakarkhani is because,^^ Really hard to tell whether that is Bakarkhani or Paratha just from pic. Old Dhaka parathas from near DU are my favorite...soft, fluffy, not greasy feeling at all (though they are certainly rich). Here in US I go for the "Malaysian" parathas but they are not the same.
Yes real fish (sigh). I doubt the fish is really imported, as it would probably take the prices to LA standards for sure, much to the disappointment of Manbil.The real McCoy, as in raw fish? Or were these the cooked kind? Are the typical sushi fish like tuna, mackerel, snapper, salmon (roe) available in Dhaka? Do the Japanese restaurants import these from somewhere?
