Booked this place for my birthday, 630pm reservation.
I have to give credit for the ambience and the Xmas decoration, I felt welcomed in there and happy with all those decoration. Place was really really small, the 2 of us were made to sit with 6 strangers, not that we really minded, so our row had 3 groups of people in 4 square tables. 2 couples at both ends, a group of friends (4 people) in the middle.
Appetizer were ready set on the table, edemame peas and green tea tofu. Then came the complimentary prawns which I personally think tasted not bad, prawn with mentai(I think?) mayo, one each per person. 7.5/10
Then we ordered the mixed sashimi platter. Tasted okay for Singaporean standards just because we don't really have salmon in here. Slices were thick and I had my yellowtail and salmon sashimi and I was happy. One thing though, they had to take 20 mins to cut fish, really? 7/10
Chawanmushi was okay, I could taste the dashi stock in it although I prefer more in it. 6.5/10
I did not try everything in the menu as service is too slow. By 748pm, out of the 20 items ordered only 7 items came. 1 hr+ and 7 items? Really? And they were like 1 bite items. Feel that their yakitori items need more sauce as I cannot taste the sauce at all.
Left at around 9+ yet all of our orders didn't come. End of the day didnt even get to try at least 1/4 of the menu which was initially planned. V disappointed although staff was friendly. I was full from the tea as we had nothing to do during the wait. This place do not deserve such high reviews as food was so-so only.
