Export vs. import

While almost every top Japanese restaurant in Bangkok claims that they import all main ingredients from around the world (beware: that means including China), Kuroda tells you that they sourced them locally; its long-time famous char-grilled, free-range, chickens are raised in its own farm, in Korat province, to serve at their five branches in Thailand, and to export to Japan.

Once in a while I eat at Kuroda, mainly with a craving for her famous self-raised free-range chicken; it is true that her poultry dishes are far better than the sashimi and sushi dishes. In order to stay strong in severe competition, Kuroda also offers an all-u-can-eat menu which is at a good value, not the best, but definitely a gift for big eaters who are fans of Japanese food.

Next time we shall go upstairs and try their BBQ. After all, this place is quite nice for a "full" meal at such an attractive price.

yes, remember that B88/mini-dish eatery at Eight Thonglo, about the same price but we were not even half full ..

i think Kuroda's cooked food (esp. chickens) is more reliable than her raw fish dishes .. so try her BBQ is a good idea!

Yes not all Japanese Restaurant has good raw fish.
Some have super BBQ and cooked food instead.
LA is the same.

Can't complain about their raw fish when they charge B399++. :)
