Still A Pretty Good Japanese Buffet

Full Irodori review here: http://ivanteh-runningman.blogspot.sg/2014/07/irodori-tasting-session.html


Since its founding in 2008, Irodori Japanese Buffet Restaurant in Riverview Hotel has been consistently drawing in the crowds with their delicious food made from fresh ingredients, wide variety of Japanese dishes, and very affordable pricing.

Ambience at Irodori combines the traditional zen with minimalist. Oriental touches, clean lines, warm lighting, and wooden panelling in shades of brown and black set a homely tone. Being an ala-carte style buffet also means that Irodori has less furniture clutter around, as well as less wastage of food.

Service at Irodori is very good, and relatively consistent after all these years. The most important service element at an ala-carte buffet is speed; the speed at which orders are fulfilled, and the speed at which empty plates are cleared, both of which are performed very efficiently at Irodori. Staff are unobstrusive, quickly and neatly arranging food that is served, and also quick to clear away dirty plates, both of which require observation and a good amount of courtesy.

Irodori specialises in serving authentic Japanese dishes, mostly small bites, made using only the freshest of ingredients. For about SGD $40 or so per person, prices at Irodori are reasonable for a decent buffet. Here are several dishes I felt most people should sample at Irodori.

You MUST get the Sashimi Moriawase / Mix Sashimi Platter, with its mix of only the freshest fish! Comprising salmon, salmon belly, tuna, yellowtail, mackerel, and octopus, this is the dish you cannot miss! For most value for money, get at least 2 or 3 rounds of this!

A rather unique signature dish, the Green Tea Tofu features a soft, wobbly, cold tofu cube infused with green tea essence, lending a fragrant, fresh aroma. Garnished with fresh cucumber, the contrast of crunchy and smooth textures work very well.

The Ebi Mentai Mayo / Grilled Prawn With Mayonnaise is a signature dish here, being outstanding because of its grilled to perfection texture, with the prawn being savoury and smoky but still slightly moist. The mayonnaise seems to be a seafood infused mayonnaise, with a delightfully umami taste.

The unique Dobin Mushi / Tea Pot Soup isn't a drink, or even a type of tea. Instead, it's a traditional Japanese seafood soup / broth, steamed with shrimp, chicken, soy sauce, lime juice, and matsutake mushroom, then strained. The result is an incredibly tasty and potent clear thin broth that tastes of the land and sea (surf and turf), earthy, fragrant, light, savoury, all at once. A must try for me!

Overall, Irodori Japanese Buffet Restaurant is still the place to go for an affordable Japanese buffet with a wide range of authentic dishes, without breaking the bank. Communal dining is most encouraged, as are advance reservations because Irodori Japanese Buffet Restaurant can get very crowded during peak periods.

The best thing was the green tea

I bought a deal for the buffet lunch. I was looking forward to the variety in the restaurant - after looking at some food blogs. I must say that it is either the blogs were slightly outdated (2014), or they were paid to do the blog post, or the food variety became limited due to the change in menu. 

The variety was rather limited for a buffet of this price. Some of the options I saw at the blog were either not available or the quality was not as good as imagined. More importantly, they do not have desserts! 

It was a buffet nonetheless. I had free flow of green tea. I think the green tea was good. The service staff was prompt in refilling them too. They were prompt to our request as well. That was good. 

With this amount, I will not recommend any friends to come again. This is because I really think that we can get more variety and be filled at other restaurants.

Having said that, I might consider coming again if they revamp their menu, making sure that they keep the green tea. Please add some desserts too!

Rude Staff & Cold Food

I usually patronize the outlet at Riverview Hotel, and they have never failed to impress me and the friends that i bring along. 

However, i decided to drop by the POMO outlet as it was more convenient for dinner with 3 of my friends.
First, we were standing at the entrance and the staff just ignored us until we had to walk in ourselves to ask for a table.

The restaurant was much more emptier as compared to the outlet at Riverview, there were 4 staff on that day and yet, each time when we wanted to take orders, the staff will tell us to wait, and we would have to call for another staff to have our orders taken. And when the food was delivered, it was cold and we were so disappointed with the service. 

No smiles or thank you from the staff at all. Totally spoilt our mood for a nice dinner.

Dear TRACYL,

We appreciate your continuous support for Irodori Japanese Restaurant.

At the same time, we would like to apologize for your recent visit to our POMO outlet. It is with regards to know that our service team has failed to keep up with the basic customer service. We would look into this, together with the F&B team to find out how we can manage the dishes much better in order to serve them hot to our valued customers.

Once again, we are sorry for this unpleasant experience but do visit us again as we hope to serve you better the next time!


Yours sincerely,
The Management

I was in the mood for Japanese food, so we were glad to discover that Irodori (flagship at Riverview Hotel @ Robertson Quay) has opened an outlet at the fringe of Dhoby Ghaut itself. The setting was more casual as compared to its flagship, but service was no less efficient. We came here for a la carte buffet dinner, which cost around SGD$43.00 per pax.

There were 2 complimentary starters - one of which we were familiar with, and loved absolutely. The first was the Tofu Salmon soup, warming the soul with its homely flavours - smooth, soft tofu cubes and the natural sweetness of salmon made this appetite-whetting. The Grilled Prawn with Salmon Roe was saccharine to the core, with springy flesh and delicious bursts of the roe popping all over the palate. Can I have, say, 5 more please?

One could never do without Sashimi when dining out at a nice Japanese restaurant - and we had a few servings of them throughout the course of the meal. They were fresh, thick, juicy slices that danced well on the tongue, and the variety was good too. My favorite would always be the swordfish and salmon sashimi.

The assortment of Tempura (deep-fried battered dishes) items - shrimps, lady's fingers, eggplant etc. I love the crisps of these deep-fried items - a hearty delight.
