The food is great, the service is excellent, we could use the tablet to order the food so that we don't bother the waiter. Once we order the food, it takes less than 15 min to arrive on the table. The food is excellent.

Great place for affordable sushi

Have always liked Itacho. Great sushi at affordable pricing, although tables are always very close to each other, making it awkward, and impossible to converse with your friend(s) without being overheard. Prompt service.

Budget Pricing for Seasonal Dishes

Ever since the first day of its opening at ION, the long queue always exist. I am thinking that was why the retailer management decided to relocate at its lower basement storey of ION.  For the snaky queue has always obstruct the two-way traffic flow of people along the pathway.

Though it's a Japanese cuisine, it's owns by a Hong Konger, Ricky.  It made sense that during the first day opening, Hong Kong celebrities like Eric Tsang, Michael Tse and one more female celebrity, whom I couldn't recall her exact name. They were there to support for the opening ceremony. And I helped my friends to take photo of them with these celebrities. They also sponsored some of the TVB dramas, one of them was 魚躍在花見, starred by Michael Tse.  

After some time, the boss appeared in the headline of the news that he got the highest bid for the tuna fish.  Their seafood are exporting from Japan to Hong Kong.  Therefore, the ingredients are really very fresh, and the seasonal ones are always snap up in ordering once it arrived at ION.  Normally they are off-menu, need to check with the bar counter chefs or sometimes, they do state it at a small writing board.

The turnover of the crowds also help to replenish the live stock faster, and that is one of the factors why the food at some branches are much more fresher than the rest.  So far, I have tried the ION, Plaza Sing, Jcube, Star Vista, especially the latter one, the chef at the counter was very nice and friendly to introduce and share the info of the seasonal fishes that are arrival within the same day.  Maybe its new opening at that time for Star Vista, no queue can be seen during the weekday dinner.  But the place is quite small in comparing with the rest.

The only place that I have tried one and last time was at Bugis. Totally stale for some of the food whereby I always ordering for, regardless of which branch. As for the upcoming very recent one is at Bedok Mall.  The sushi was quite small in portion though it was fresh.  

My usual and fixed ordering would be grilled soy sauce salmon sushi (limited to 2 pieces per customer now and after 6:30pm, last time used to be unlimited and with no timing set), jumbo scallop, fish roe steam egg and fried-pan corn egg.

After afew years residing at Singapore, their portion is getting smaller and the pricing has been increased.  Their ION branch has shifted to one level down, and the queue has turned to an electronic ticket to wait for a table.  Perhaps due to the crowds, their service has been not as good as compared.

the outlet moved..now at #B3-20

Date of Visit: 13 Sep 2013

Itacho existed in ION Orchard long ago and is always seen with long queues around meal times. They have since shifted a level down. more spacious of course. Service was somewhat slow today. Also, they mixed up several orders of other patrons. Perhaps the excitement of the new outlet opening had a drain on the service staff. Probably re-visit for a re-assessment

Service: poor

Food: can be much better. the maguro in the picture was blue fin tuna. it was part of a huge fish that had been sliced in front of everyone due to its opening ceremony. it was not as fresh as i had expected
the salmon was actually better in taste and freshness even though there was a discount on that item.
oh! the tamagoyaki (original flavour) here was very nice. much nicer than the ones tried at their other outlets. we had the warm ones, and they were served at just the right temperature, sufficiently soft and mildly sweet. tamagoyaki is the japanese eggroll.

Ambience: Good, more spacious than the previous outlet
