Santaro@Hinoki Japanese Dining serves Japan's best dishes in one corner. it boosts a contemporary theme that features earth and achromatic tones with an 18-seater sushi counter as the centerpiece of the whole restaurant.
I am particular about my chirashi and there are so many places popping up these days that we are all spoiled for choice.
This was a very average meal on a very average weekday after work.
I would say i would come back again if they had a good promotion going on.
Good value and good service!

Tucked in China Square’s Nankin Row within the bustling Central Business District, this restaurant has earned a marvellous reputation over the years, and is seemingly exceedingly well received by native Japanese.
The menu is extensive, with over 20 appetisers to choose from, over 10 varieties of sashimi, over 30 varieties of sushi, grilled items, stewed dishes, fried and steamed items, soups, noodles, rice and dessert. Those who can afford a longer lunch break can choose to enjoy a 6 to 8-course kaiseki meal, while those who don’t have much time to spare can opt for the attentively prepared bento set for sheer convenience.
Oyster with Truffle Oil Steamed Egg Custard – Kaki Ponzu Chawanmushi ($15)
- Chawanmushi is given an elevated twist here with the incorporation of fresh plump oysters and truffle oil. This is heaven in every mouthful.
Fried Rice (off the menu)
My dining companion who had dined at Hinoki several years ago still remembers the brilliance of their fried rice –a simple dish that’s rendered tremendously fragrant and comforting. We couldn’t find it on the menu, but there’s an unwritten consent that the restaurant should keep this brilliance alive. The fried rice is a popular dish amongst regular patrons.
Japanese Pumpkin under Snow – Secchou Kabochia ($22)
- The “Japanese Pumpkin under Snow” is an award-winning dish that is representative of the chef’s potential, creativity and attention to detail.
Celebrated my birthday here and enjoyed the fresh, sweet sashimi platter for 2 very much. My other favourite dish was the Hinoki truffled udon served cold.
