Sushi & Sashimi Feast.!!

Sushi and sashimi are fresh, not much complain on itacho, my wife and I only get to know Itacho in Hong Kong when we are having honey moon, I glad that they have it in Singapore. I'm not a fan of their udon, there is no texture and is very soft. Anyway you pay what you get, at least we are able to enjoy a feast. Rather then going to a high end Japanese restaurant that we may only go once a year.

Overhyped

Read more reviews at http://thehungrybunnie.blogspot.com

Itacho Sushi opened to much fanfare and tiresome snaking queues. I'd heard good stuff about them but waited till the crazy long lines dwindled before we decided to dine here. We were curious as to how the Japanese fare here stacked up against Sushi Tei, the frontrunner in the mid-priced, mass market, casual Japanese chain restaurant market.
 
 As it turns out, the food here is a little overhyped. I wasn't particularly impressed with their stuff and left baffled as to how some people actually queued up an hour for this. Granted, I only dined on their cooked foods, so maybe Itacho shines in the raw foods department. However, based on the random sampling of the menu, my take is that Sushi Tei easily trumps Itacho Sushi.
 
 The Grilled Salmon ($8) seasoned with spicy miso, was saccharine and overwhelmed the natural taste of the salmon. Worse still was that it was overcooked, resulting in a somewhat dry piece of fish.

The Edamame ($2.80) should have been an easy peasy dish, but because it was unsalted, it was consequently tasteless.

The Shrimp Tempura ($5) fared much better. Light crisp batter swathed the fresh bouncy prawns.

Will I return again? For affordable Sushi cravings, I am more than willing to.

For a full review and pictures, pls visit http://therantingpanda.wordpress.com/  The Place Itacho is no stranger to most people as it has been around in Singapore for a few years. As the Sister company of Itame in Hong Kong, the debut outlet of Itacho was in Ion Orchard and it has been expanding since then due to its insane popularity among Singaporeans. Contrary to the norm, it is possible to enjoy a really economical meal at Itacho if you know what to order exactly.

The best Itacho so far

At last! I'm at the page of Plaza Singapura's Itacho. Been to this outlet for a couple of times and so far, this is one of the best outlet (in terms of attitude and attentiveness).

*My bill might appeared to be slightly costly than two can eat. My sis and I are all-time sashimi(s) lovers hence we only ordered sushi(s) and sashimi(s)! No udon/bento/don at all.*

Try going earlier like 6 plus to queue so that you do not have to wait too long. The service crews are much more attentive. At times they do overlook or forgot after calling for service especially during the peak dinner hours, however with a little reminder, they will usually get to you without much delays.

One of the thing that I am particular about was: The service crew took our drink orders and time taken to serve us was almost immediate upon seated.

If you are one who cannot afford to queue for more than 15 minutes, do make a reservation at the minimum of 25$/per pax. I have not tried making a reservation though, it is always an impromptu for me!

A Lousy Experience !!!

After gathering so many "positive" comments fm friends & website, I decided to make my 1st visit here with my friends for dinner last nite.

As a 1st timer - the experience was uttering disappointing!! The variety is limited and the price range is considered a little on the high side with the current serving portion ..2 of my friends ordered Teriyaki Chicken Rice. Both agreed that the taste was so-so and the chicken was very dry and hard.. The Crab Chawanmushi that I ordered looked more like a watery "shark's fin" to me though the taste is alright.

We screened through the menu but did not find the usual Sashimi & Tempura platter that we want (like those offered at Sushi Tei and Shin Kushiya where there are a few kinds of sashimi & mixed tempura in the platter set). and after confirming with the waitress that they do not have it, we ordered 1 plate of Swordfish sashimi, 1 Octopus, 1 Prawn tempura & 1 Veg tempura set. The taste for the Swordfish & Octopus were acceptable but the prawn and the veg serving were small. The entire presentation did not look interesting either.

Throughout our meal (about 1hr) - our tea were not refilled until we signal the waitress to do so. And each time when the waitress came forward with the dish that we ordered, she did not even bother to remove those empty plates on our table!

Since none of us showed any interest to continue, we decided to settle our bill. Now, the worst thing has happened! The cashier at the counter told my friend who was settling the bill that we did not mak the min spent required ($25 each / $100 for 4 of us) because we made an advance phone reservation. I turned around and asked my friend who did the booking and she was very certained that the person who took her reservation did not highlight this to her. The cashier however, still insisted that their staff would definitely inform anyone who call to make reservation about this "requirement" but since now we did not "meet" the min requirement, she allowed us to top up the difference by placing takeaway order. Seeing the queue that was coming up, we did not want to argue further and but quickly settled the payment and went off.

Overall, the whole experience for the food and service were really disappointing and it spoilted our mood totally. I'm sure for the same amount spend elsewhere, I can receive better service and attention plus a more satisfying meal!

I SWEAR this will be my 1st and will also be my last visit to this place !!
