Not so picky

Quality Japanese food at affordable price

Impressed with the Chirashi set which was at a reasonable price of $25++ which comes with very thick slices of sashimi, which were very fresh - normally i dont like tuna and mackeral but the sashmi was so fresh, i didnt taste any fishiness.

Was also impressed with the tempura soba set $14++ - the soba was very Q as it was served on ice cubes.

Was quite shocked by the price tag of the yuzu tea thou - it was $5++ which was quite a hefty price tag, probably cos they added pieces of yuzu in the drink (but still i think it doesnt justify the price).

overall i would visit this place again and again. very good quality and the price was very affordable.

Still one of the better jap food eateries in Singapore

Have been here several times and there have been hits and misses! Sometimes the chirashi don is amazingly satisfying, but at times the sashimi has not lived up to my expectations. They are opening up a second outlet, I hope they maintain the standard! By far one of the better chirashi dons I have had for $30 (incl of GST and service charge) and below.

Victim of their own success!

I made a reservation and received a confirmation email. Showed up at the correct time, but the restaurant was jam packed, with a large knot of people clustered at the entrance. There were no tables available, and I was told that I had to wait for my table. Ended up waiting 40 minutes, and realizing that the knot of people at the entrance were all in the same boat, all had made prior reservations which were not honored by Chikuwa Tei.
 
 I was entertaining a friend from overseas, so I had to put up a good face, but this experience made me feel deeply cheated. Understand this: The food quality was very high, the price point was also very high, the ambiance was lousy (crowded and noisy tuckshop atmosphere), the service was only moderately good, but to top it all off, the restaurant management (reservations) was a total rip off. Not a word of apology was made to any of the patrons, no mention of the mess up was even spoken of. We were all given the cold shoulder.
 
 I CAN'T BELIEVE I PAID THEIR PRICES TO COME OUT FEELING CHEATED! NEVER AGAIN!
