Chikuwa Tei is the venture of the former chef of the wildly popular Wasabi Tei at Far East Plaza. The chef has brought along his delectable Japanese dishes to his new outlet, ranging from affordable set menus to premium treats that are sure to please even the pickiest palates.
I had heard so much about their value chirashi set ($25) but was deterred by talks of rude and impersonal service. The service was better than the chirashi. Attentive and friendly, the entire menu was explained to us and recommendations were made. They were quick to clear away our plates and we did feel very spoiled by attention. The chirashi is good, not outstanding. Really good value with its thick cut sashimi and fish to rice ratio. The chawanmushi was excellent and my partner enjoyed his tempura maki and chicken set. The menu has a lot of variety and there is something for everyone. If you don't know what to order, look for Doris - she will sort you out.
Had a disappointing experience dining at Chikuwa Tei. Was there for dinner on 9th April 2016 with my family. Ordered 2 bottles of Asahi beer and when they came, one bottle tasted distinctly flat from the other bottle and had a funny sourish aftertaste. I requested for a replacement glass and a middle aged, relatively friendly waitress told me she just poured the beer from a brand new bottle and it couldn't have been spoiled. I told her that the beer definitely tasted off and got ask for a replacement. The beer was replaced and it was all good. However when I got the bill they charged me for the replacement beer. I questioned her about the bill and she said she pour the beer fresh from the bottle and it couldn't have been spoiled. I have no idea what kind of reason that is. The beer could have been oddly stored in the wrong condition or bottle cap was loose to start off with. Bottom line being I paid for a bad beer that I didn't consume. It wasnt expensive but it's infuriating that you make a customer paid for something undrinkable.
Food wise it's ok. But I will never return to this restaurant ever again. And I won't recommend anyone to this restaurant too because even if they had excellent food, the last thing anyone need is a bad experience.
It's was a bad encounter in my life! Made a reservation to this restaurant for dinner with colleagues. Menu two menu for 7 people, expected we share the menu. It's okay, when we started to order food we are being told that we've only 1.5 hour to have dinner. So, we had bargain and agreed with the waitress and supervisor to arrange us to other table as we will stay abit longer enjoy our food. But, the supervisor scolded the waitress in front of us for unorganized! It's okay, she show us a black face and in a very unhappy tune. I think we deserve a better service because I will pay a 10% service charge to the restaurant! I think this kind of service is suck! They don't even worth for a star restaurant. We will never ever step in this restaurant.
