I would visit only if I have the1 dines free bday voucher

I visited the restaurant over the weekends, to celebrate a birthday.

The variety is good. We like some items like the garlic rice, grilled pork, tempura. Great value with the 1 dines free birthday voucher. Attentive service staff.

Not so goods are: The table is abit too small. Slow to serve food, we waited for at least 10 mins to be served the first dish even though we were the first few in the restaurant. Some dishes were a tad too salty or sweet, esp the stew dishes.

Some hits and misses. Can try if you do not mind paying $32++ per pax for lunch. If there is a neutral vote, I would use it.

Shin MInori - affordable Japanese ala carte buffet

To satiate craving for alot, alot of sashimi and chawanmushi craving, and a special treat, *Celine and I went for Japanese buffet dinner again, this time at Shin Minori Japanese Restaurant located at 81 Clemenceau Avenue #03-15 / 16 UE Square, Singapore 239917 and the number to dial is 6733 2272.   Bathed in soft dim lights in a comfortable setting respledent of rich Japanese culture, Shin Minori was packed to the brim tonight with diners. We enjoyed the hot pot of tea served first, while placing our order at this all-you-can-eat, a la carte buffet restaurant.   It seemed rather fitting to start the meal off with Hiyayakko (chilled bean curd), a cold, smooth cube of delicacy that was sweetly fresh and tender to the touch, served with soft fish flakes and spring onions.   I had the Momo Sarada (peach salad) next, a tiny dish of delicacy formed by fresh greens and sweet peaches. I loved this item as I am a peaches fan; didn't detect any dressing but the salad was tasty on its own.   Then there were the Chawanmushi (steamed egg custard) and Kabocha Chawanmushi (pumpkin steamed egg custard). I thought that their chawanmushis were a little too watery / diluted, but the taste was rather good. The pumpkin one was sweet, redolent of pumpkin's flavor. Both contained chicken meat and gingko nut.   We had the Sashimi Moriwase (assorted raw seafood) - a platter of paradise. Their platter of salmon, swordfish, tuna, squid and snapper was rather fresh with bouncy textures and the soft sapid of seafood. We had a good time with this platter, and ordered more afterwards (salmon, swordfish and tuna).   There were many other items and variety of food.

Nice food but lousy service...

Yesterday, I was at Shin Minori at UE Square for lunch with a friend, as we had been their regular customers since their opening many years ago.

We were impressed with the buffet ala carte menu,  and found  it is now faster in ordering the food by submitting the ticked pre-printed menu lists to the serving staff.

Firstly, when I called to make the reservation, the lady who answered my call, Ms Wong ( we were told she is one of the restaurant partners), did not even have the courtesy to greet me nor identify the restaurant's name when she picked up my call.  When I explained to her that as I do not have a printer at home, so I was unable to print out the promotion brochure to get a complimentary snow crab nabe for every table.  But I promised her that at the restaurant, I can certainly show them them the promotion item if they insisted, but they should be flexible in doing business.  She then reluctantly agreed that I do not have to produce the hardcopy, and she will indicate it beside my reservation.

However, when I was at the restaurant, I asked the serving staff to serve us the snow crab nabe.   This tall male serving staff had refused to serve it to us, as he claimed there was no indicationof the complimentary snow crab nabe beside my reservation.  And with his fierce look and harsh voice,  he insisted I go personally to the counter to speak with his manager on this matter!  I then told him to ask his manager to come to my table instead, as I was thinking why should I when I am their paying customer.

When the male Filipino manager then came to our table, before he could complete talking to us to clarify the misunderstanding on this matter, he simply snapped and walked into the kitchen, leaving both my friend and I puzzled with his rude attitude.  Thereafter, we were served with the small pot of snow crab nabe which we felt if it was worth going through all the unpleasant experiences from that  staff and his manager to get that soup.

Later, as I was requesting the replenishment for the pot of hot green tea, I had also wanted to order my glass of paid iced green tea. But before I could complete my order, that absolutely in a daze male serving staff, just walked away into the kitchen.  He later only came back  with a pot of hot green tea and without my glass of iced green tea.  I then had to repeat my order for the iced green tea with him.

Overall, there are much room for improvement in the services of this restaurant, if the management values the importance of good customer services to retain its customers. If not, it is certainly not worth going back to spoil your meal from the lousy services provided!
