Beef Teriyaki Don ($11.90) – beef teriyaki rice bowl and miso soup. Large portion and generous serving of beef and rice. Quite flavourful too. Rating: 3.5/5
Kushiyaki Don ($16.90) – cherry tomato wrapped with bacon, grilled prawn with saikyo miso, minced chicken ball and scallop on rice bowl, appetizer, chawanmushi, miso soup and fruit. Very hearty meal with a pretty reasonable price! d*** filling too. Generous serving of rice. Rating: 4/5
Hotate Mentai Mayo Yaki ($9.90) – scallop with spicy cod roe mayonnaise. Very very addictive and chewy!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Rating: 4.5/5
Slow service overall and restaurant manager seems to have bad attitude. Been there several times already because my children love to eat sushi. Now we just dine at the Ngee Ann City one which is better managed. When I said slow service I meant orders come slow even when restaurant isn't operating at full capacity. When I say bad attitude I meant that they seem to give seating priority to diners without children, sometimes skipping over families first in line.
Love the food varieties, staff service excellent each visit. I always feel full after leaving and I always choose the food combo each time as I find it to be worth the money. Forgot to take food pics, bought the hokkaido cheesecake after for picture taking. Yum!
Took 10 mins for a hot tea and 15 mins for a coke light to be served, and took 30 mins for our food to come. When the food came, the rice was not served and was totally forgotten. We were seated in the other room (next to kitchen) where you can smell everything coming from the kitchen. Also smell like the kitchen after you finish your meal. One service staff who barely walks in, but when he does, give good service. I got so frustrated when our hot tea was hardly topped up that I got up and helped myself to the teapot. I suspect the restaurant is extremely understaffed in the kitchen and service side. Will not come back, there are other Ichiban-Boshis which are better.
