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.
