My current to-go place in town for Japanese lunches!

I've probably had the Grilled Fish Set at Yakitori Enmaru a dozen of times in a few months now! Lovely lunches and great service.

I like how the set is presented as a traditional Japanese meal, i.e. ichiju sansai (One main dish and 3 sides).

The main would be Shioyaki, or salt-grilled fish (recently uses saba fish, which I love) with a slice of lemon, always grilled to perfection. Oh right,its a yakitori!

Cue Miso soup (not bad, but not as good as Tatsuya), pickles, and an amazing sesame paste topped salad (sesame dressing is indeed traditional Japanese!) for the usual sides. The cherry on top being a cold dish of stewed beef with carrots, daikons and onions. Perfect, complete meal with a bowl of rice (I usually hve only half of it) that's always moist enough.

Oh yes! Best mini chawanmushi - chokeful of ingredients including chicken bites, fish roe and crab meat :)

Also, the unagi rice set always looks & (sample)tastes great, so a thumbs-up there too!

Dessert

I would say that they have the best sesame and green tea ice cream. Beats Shin Kuriya (Raffles Place).

Ambiance is quite perfect for me - the staff are all pleasant and setting reminds me of this yakitori restaurant I frequent when I'm in Tokyo.

Service is awesome, my request is memorized each visit by the lovely waitresses("sans pickles,extra salad, minimal grilling") plus my hot green tea gets refilled without my asking. Most importantly, the tables are well-spaced.

One of the best Japanese restaurants in town for quiet and sumptuous lunch, other than Tatsuya (a bit too cosy) and Aoki!

Very nice service and ambience but overpriced food and slightly salty

Great service and izakaya ambience.
But all skewers are quite overpriced, and the robatayaki was very salty.

misses and few hits

Some dishes were just wrongly seasoned in my opinion. The Caesar salad was wayyyyy over dressed. Could hardly swallow. Mediocre yakitori. Liked the chicken balls though!

Tasty yakitori, but not at this price

My partner and I dropped in for dinner after having gone over the menu at the entrance- the selections looked interesting enough.

We had 2 sticks each of the pork belly, basil chicken, wagyu tongue and scallop skewers, sea urchin sushi, and a glass of plum wine on ice. Unordered but provided as part
