Enjoy unpretentious and soulful Japanese hotpot at Suki-Ya, as the restaurant offers unlimited top quality beef and pork at affordable prices. Suki-Ya also features a vegetable bar with free flow of fresh greens to provide an overall balanced dining experience.
I like this place for its soup broth and clean ambiance. Food wise, very limited variety; one of the worst for a buffet restaurant and to make things worst, they limit your time. They could also increase the thickness of the shabu shabu sliced meat.
Ambience is clean and spacious. Though booth seats are falling apart with the back seats being shaky and almost detached off. But the soup bases are tasteless, especially the Tom Yam soup that we had. The sukiyaki soup was not that bad as we could fix it by placing more vegetables like carrots leeks and mushrooms and corn into it (that's the extent of tasteless-ness. You need to fix it just like a Masterchef challenge). But the meat is quite smooth, especially the pork. The sauces were another disappointment. The satay peanut sauce is sticky starchy and without flavour. So was the ponzu sauce. J Pot is much better but costlier as well.
Japanese style steamboat buffet, it's provide 6 type of soups but I think is merely 5 type (plain water didn't count). The soups is Kimuchi，Tonyu Miso，Butaniku (Pork Bone), Sukiyaki (Soya Soup), Shabu Shabu (Like Plain Water), Laksa. The food ingredient has meat slice (pork, lamb and chicken), meat ball, squid ball, watermelon, honeydew, carrot, noddle, rice noodle, needle mushroom, grey mushroom, mushroom, vegetable, and corn. The food variety is minimum and without seafood and the soup taste is average, but the meat slice quality is good.
The environment is hygienic good and didn't has smell at all, food ordering and serving is quickly, but it has issue for chicken meat slice. Each time we order, staff said they still preparing but endup didn't serve. For instance, if order 2 plate, it's merely provide 1 plate, and forgot another plate.
Suki-Ya will be expensive if you try the dinner (after 4pm) at Friday - Sunday, Public Holiday, Eve of Public Holiday. Each Person with the beverage will be around SGD32 - SGD36. Of course, it's most valuable period will be Monday - Friday lunch time. Each person with the beverage will be around SGD18 - SGD23, you better count it before you tried.
P.S you need mention the number of minutes either 80 minutes or 100 minutes as at above.
Passed by Suki-ya at i12 and decided to try it out with my boyfriend. It was during lunch and place wasn't crowded. Went in, waitress told us we need to pay additional for drinks and I was kinda annoyed as it is a buffet and they are charging for drinks.. Which I find it a bit odd and felt cheated. Food variety was normal and the meat served was of average quality. One thing I love, their miso tare sauce. Their pork broth And kimchi broth are also quite good.
