Great service and food

Good service, great food and really one of the better japanese places in singapore. Too bad it's tucked away at the airport. Ambience is good as well. Only problem is their matcha ice cream. Was undergoing crystallisation. Other than that, not much of an issue.

Delicious tonkatsu! Lots of privacy as the back of the seats were high.

The shredded cabbage was delicious! Free flow of green tea/water, rice and miso soup. Waiter will explain which plates are for what and which sauce to use.

Personally, I love the katsu here, and I found the  Irodori combo meal most interesting. You get to choose a combination of katsu that goes to your plate! One of my favorite was ratatouille katsu. The shredded cabbage served was free flow too, it was refreshing and easily got rid of the greasiness on yuur tongue after all the fried food.

Although it's considered pricey in my opinion, every set on the menu comes with unlimited refilling of Miso Soup, Rice & CabbageRice-lovers, perhaps this is your ideal restaurant to dine in.

 I'm so in love with Saboten's green tea flavoured ice cream! It is served on a chilled bowl and my sensitive teeth are hurting me!

What to Eat
Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
