Irodori is a simple and chic-looking Japanese restaurant that promises good food at decent prices. Expect quality food – to be sure, we are excluding the leagues of Shinji and Aoki – from their a la carte buffet menu of Japanese cuisine mainstays. Conveniently located at Havelock Road, it is only a short journey to travel from school if you have cravings to satisfy.

We started with the complimentary Ebi Mentai Mayo (grilled tiger prawn). A pity this dish cannot be ordered again because it was one of the more noteworthy dishes, grilled to goodness. For a few fleeting moments of eating this, I had the sudden thought that mayo should used everywhere.

The buffet menu has a wide variety of choices and some of the dishes you have to order include the Sashimi Moriawase. The beautifully plated sashimi includes  a mixture ofShake (salmon), Maguro (tuna), Hamachi (yellow tail), Mekajiki (sword fish), Tako (octopus) and Tai (snapper). They give very generous cuts of the sashimi which is fresh and smooth. Waiting time for this dish will be longer on crowded days because everyone will be ordering sashimi (which is the main point of a Japanese buffet after all). Kudos to the tako. I had many slices that were glossily tender and filled with briny sweetness while a few did fall a bit below that.

There’s no way we would pass up the chance to have a simple Chawanmushi. Intensely savory, smooth, custardy, you could pick out the use of a really rich dashi or chicken stock. All the better when it was pouring outside at that time.

Whenever I crave for Japanese food, particularly sashimi, this is the place I will be. Their sashimis are probably the best in Singapore FULL STOP.

Good variety and quality for the price

I discovered this place a few years ago and have been going back regularly since. I visit this place probably once every 3 - 4 months. It can be a crowded in the evenings so i usually try to go during lunch when i'm on leave or during the weekends. Lunch buffet is also cheaper for the same menu, so

Best Sashimi

Had the ala carte dinner buffet here on a Friday night. Service was good with the waiters introducing each dish that was served. The menu has a huge variety of dishes, many I have not heard of before, with alot of interesting dishes to try. Good place to try something new and exciting for a change,

Quite Exp for this standard

Service was lousy..i used the same plate throughout the 3 hrs buffet! Despite my reminders, did not change and clear the table. So much so that we gv up and pile the table with dirty n empty plate. The aunt pouring my green tea was rude, instead of walking to our side, she expect us to pass her
