Recommended for its chirashi

Had a craving for chirashi the other day and after searching around, we finally decided on Chikuwa Tei where we had the Special Chirashi set.   The meal started with a chawanmushi, which was chock full of ingredients and was pretty delicious.   The chirashi don certainty did not disappoint. Price-wise, I would have to say that it was worth the premium price as compared to a normal chirashi set (S$68 as compared to a normal chirashi don at S$25). Each slice was thick and fresh. I personally felt that the salmon and ikura hit the right spot. Special mention also goes out to the otoro (tuna belly), which made the meal really memorable.   Service wise, the waitresses were very friendly and our orders were served quickly. They were also prompted in refilling our tea. Thumbs-up!

Good food but SUPER BAD SERVICES!

Went for dinner with my friends on 3 Jul 2015 (Friday). Everything was good at the beginning with a waitress wearing orange uniform serving us to our table. Quality of food is acceptable for the price.
 1. It is hard to get any of the waitresses to refill our drinks.
 2. The horrible part comes:-
 Towards the end of our dinner, as we were chatting and I was still eating, another waitress passed us the bill. We were surprised as we did not asked for it especially not when I was still eating and we have plans to order dessert. Without asking for permission or informing us, another waitress wearing green uniform just pushed the next table to join with ours, and said out loud to another waitress that this will be for a group of 5/6 customers. What sort of attitude is that? Chasing us off? Furthermore, throughout the whole dinner we were there, she never once presented a smile. Not a single one and instead presented us with an agitated look.
 Firstly, how can you throw us the bill when we did not ask for it in order to chase us off?
 Secondly, you do not even have the courtesy to inform or ask politely whether you can join the table to ready for another group.
 Thirdly, after knowing we were not going to leave (since I was not done with my food), the waitress still showed her frustration by pushing the other tables around to try to arrange such that she can allow other customers to sit down. To a point, she placed a chair at the walkway between the next table and our table, preventing my friend from getting out. Chikuwa Tei, I do understand alot of customers come to your restaurant for your good food. I suppose you should also look hard into giving good service too.

Extremely disappointing

Food is mediocre and extremely "without-frills". Overpriced too. If I could give a zero for service and ambience, I would. After pointing out the discrepancies between the picture and the actual food (the appetizer was missing), the waitress told me "now don't have already" and walked away. I questioned her on that, and the manager came and VERY rudely told me that my appetizer had already arrived. It turned out to be three dismal pieces of fruit, whereas the picture had showed some octopus.

We decided to give chikuwatei a try, with all the hype that we heard about it. Made a reservation.... but it was of no use at all... with the crowd it drew, there was no way they could track reservations or give seats to those who made reservations without drawing wrath from those already in the queue. That's alright. Since it was a popular restaurant, we joined the queue with others who have also made reservations. 

As we waited, two ladies who also made reservations arrived... and happily squeezed to the front of the queue so that they can alert the counter lady about their reservation.  They didn't get any attention... but they still stood firmly at the front... when a seat opened up, the service staff naturally brought the two ladies in... which many in the queue protested because we ALL had reservations! Bottom line is that if u CANNOT manage reservations... don't take reservations. 
 
We took our seat and ordered a hot pot. When it came.... the hotpot was COLD... IRONIC RIGHT... we sent it back... THEN we had to ask the service staff 3 times... before we could get our green tea refilled. HAI... 

All in all food was not bad... price reasonable... but the experience left a bad taste. To the extent that I have to set up a hungry go where account to voice my grievances... service staff tried to make it up by being extra smiley and friendly when u are paying... but damage is already done la...
