New Chef! Hurray!!

I totally empathize with reviewer Dimchoy below. Just want to say that we had similar encounters with Chef Lawrence. Started back then at his previous establishment in Keppel, we offered him a small glass of our wine, but I couldn't believe it when he subsequently started helping himself to the bottle right before our eyes! This was a 1964 Haut Brion, but regardless of the value of wine, his behaviour was downright rude and disgusting. Needless to say, we never went back. Which was a pity as he is otherwise a skillful chef. Fast forward to this year Valentine's Day. We went to new restaurant Hinoki thinking, hoping, that his appalling behaviour was now a thing of the past. Alas we were so wrong. He was in fact even more brazen than ever before. He was drunk and slurring, helping himself repeatedly to our Krug champagne (aided this time by the wait staff!), even pouring some to his other customers who were complete strangers to us, and forgot to serve specially requested items despite reminders! Three-quarter way thru our meal, he did the disappearing act. Thankfully this clown has recently been replaced by Chef Santaro, whom we hear was his chef master, so we're looking forward to return to Hinoki soon. Appreciate Dimchoy for taking the time to pen his honest feedback and kudos to the management of Epicurean Concepts for its proactive response.

We thank you for your positive feedback. The management of Epicurean Concepts takes constructive and genuine feedback and comments seriously. And more importantly, we take customer satisfaction and our food service very seriously. Therefore instead of merely replacing a key member of our staff, we took the opportunity to elevate our standards by bringing in Master Chef Santaro Li. Thank you for your contributions and support!

Average Chirashi and rice bowls

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!

Went there for a business lunch. We had a good time. Food was very good and the taste was one-of-a-kind. I've had much japanese food all round but I think this stands out! Must Try!!
