This Japanese bar has an extensive menu of Japanese cocktails and appetiser dishes, such as sashimi, yakitori, salad and even light desserts. Great for unwinding over a few hours.

Free flow Japanese Beer

he ambience at En Japanese Dining Bar is light, though the buffet is anything but: a menu of tako harumaki (deep-fried beef and cheese spring rolls), hot soupy udon (noodles) and sushi, sashimi, and yakitori provide a full-on Japanese binge. You will need it to soak up the free-flowing Japanese beer ($35 surcharge for two hours). If you are still standing after, grab a scoop of matcha (green tea) ice cream to go.

Horrible experience for a pricey dinner

I usually could not be bothered to write.  But for my experience last night, I feel I need to go through the trouble of registering and writing so I can relate my most horrible experience.

firstly I was given a roadside seat which I didn't really mind.  I took the shabu Shaba buffet with the seafood add on for 2 persons.  The buffet came up to $136++ for 2 persons.  The service was slow.... Intentionally slow!!!!

i managed only 2 servings of sashimi, 3 hand rolls and 1 order of the seafood Shabushabu.  While the menu said unlimited servings of queen crab legs, don't be fooled by it!  When my 2nd order (yes 2nd order not 3rd or 4th...) for my crab legs took more than 30mins to come, I asked the staff and was told that there was no such order for my table. they then told me I need to wait another 30min cos the crabs need to be "de-thawed".  Can u believe this shxt"?  But yet, they promptly served me a 2nd big and generous plate of vegetables even though I didn't order it!

in the end, I only had 1 serving for a buffet dinner.  I think the tactic of delaying food serve has gone overdone. I will not return if it is 20dollars per pax cos I believe in enjoying my dinner, not waiting to be stressed in waiting for my food like a cat and mouse game.  And to be honest, I didn't even order a lot for my first round of food order..... Cos the staff kept saying to finish our first round of food order first.  I didn't even get my tempura. Just shabushabu first round of order, 2 shashimi, 3 handrolls....

yucks! What a horrible experience!

Embarrassment of a Dining Establishment.

Visited this Restaurant once before for lunch in mid 2013 with a reasonably positive experience. Was impressed with the freshness of the Sashimi and execution of the various Beef Dishes, in particular the Beef Carpaccio.

With the intention of celebrating a friend's birthday, I made a reservation for my party of 6 for dinner on 25th Jan 14. Having arrived early at 6:30pm for our 7:00pm reservation and spying an empty restaurant, we decided to take a short walk around the area while waiting for the absent members of our party.

On walking up to the restaurant at 6:50pm, I was abruptly informed that my private room reservation for 7:00pm had been cancelled; that the restaurant was full and the only available seating was in the corridor outside the restaurant next to the garbage disposal/carpark entrance, despite the largely empty restaurant.The restaurant alleged they had called my number once to confirm the reservation prior to 7:00pm (which they did not) and upon failing to reach me, gave away my reservation to another party on a waitlist.

The service staff blatantly lied and made up a feeble excuse for their ineptness in handling overbooking. The roadside seating offered was noisy, near the garbage and entirely inappropriate for a birthday celebration. Needless to say, my party, being famished, was furious with being stood-up in this manner; what's the point of a reservation if it can be cancelled nilly-hilly at the doorstep?

As noted by several others, service standards at this restaurant have fallen over the past year of 2013. I have to concur and strongly denounce this abysmal establishment as a dining option of any manner. DO NOT step foot into this place, your time and money is better spent elsewhere.
