My humble opinion of an amazing restaurant

I had first come across Hanabi after caving into the continuous pleas of my friends to give this place a try about 3 years ago. And I'm glad to say that ever since then, it has become my favourite joint whenever I've had the urge to pig out and treat myself to delicious sashimi. I'm pretty disappointed at the closure of the King's Arcade outlet but nonetheless, the extra 30 minutes travel I make to Odeon Towers has never left me unsatisfied. So, one can only imagine my horror at the previous review of the Odeon Towers outlet. And that brings me to this review, I have decided to defend my favourite buffet outlet. So here goes. Heads up, this might be a tat bit lengthy.

I've noticed a change in the management over the last 3 years. There used to be a chinese lady with long hair whom I believe was the manager at Odeon Towers but to be honest, her service always struck me as a little insincere. However, I think that in the last year of so, the new manager (a chinese man, I believe) has really changed things up in the restaurant. Maybe it's upper management decision but the restaurant has really improved its service and increased promotions which Hanabi fanatics like myself thoroughly enjoy.

The food is to-die-for. Let's face it, with buffets, we as customers are normally made to walk around and take what we want from a table filled with dishes that might have been left there for too long to be appetizing. However, what I LOVE about Hanabi is the fact that we get to order the dishes we desire and best of all, it's served piping hot (grilled items) or freshly cut (sashimi). Talking about Sashimi, anyone who is a Sashimi fan NEEDS to pick up the phone and give the restaurant a call now. The salmon is extremely fresh and it is to my understanding that they get it from Norway? Well, I'm not too sure about the Norway thing. Might have to check the next time I'm there.

In essence, for the rate Hanabi offers for their wide spread of buffet dishes, I'd make a sweeping statement and just say that it is one of the best offers for great quality Japanese food in Singapore, especially in the city area. At $33++ for dinner, my friends and I take every opportunity to visit this wonderful establishment and enjoy the high quality food and an affordable price. So really, coming from a regular customer who has been a loyal follower of Hanabi for 3 years, if you love Japanese food or if you are a buffet person, Hanabi sure is the place you will want to visit.

Worst Japanese Buffet i ever eaten..

Chef got no basic knowledge of sashimi. They serve me and my friend the sashimi on a hot plate that just finish washing. its not warm but hot... Asked them why do they serve me on this hot plate, they never say anything and just take the sashimi away to the counter and move the sashimi from the hot plate to another warm plate.Maguro is cut into cube shape with full of unchewable fats.

Food selection very limited.Seats are limited.Sashimi totally not fresh.Place is Dark.Waitress keep on asking us to order more at the same time as they dont have time for us.

Will never go back again.
