Being an unpretentious, casual and authentic Japanese Tapas restaurant, Katanashi brings to Singaporeans the warm hospitality and excellent service standard of Japan to Singapore, while serving great value Japanese Tapas.
A young man leaves the comfort of his shores and lands in Singapore, falls in love with the country and opens a small eatery. Sounds like a fairy tale? Well, that is the story of Katanashi in Boat Quay.
A small eatery,the place serves a mix of Japanese tapas with a fusion twist ideal for a meal of light snacks that complients well with drinks. And with a nice view of the Singapore river, this would make an ideal place for a romantic getaway without having to bust the budget.
Came here for dinner and drinks with a couple of friends on a weekday night. Food was not bad. However, portion is small so this is not the place to go if you want to have a filling dinner. Katanashi Fried Chicken was really good though it's quite pricey at $2.40 per piece if I didn't remember wrongly. I really liked the curry menchi and cheese hanpen too. Beef carparccio and tuna tataki were good too. The most disappointing of all was yaki udon. I felt that the noodles were overcooked.
Been there a few times, they never fail to always put a smile on your face. Service staff are ever so friendly and attentive.
Food has a nice authentic taste to it and its fresh.
Food that I've tried:
Daigaku Imo: Glazed sweet potato with ice cream. Done ever so nicely
King of Cream Cheese: The blend of cream cheese and honey is done so nicely!
Maguro Tataki: Seared Tuna. Fresh with a tangy jelly sauce.
Potato Crequeete: Crispy on the outside, soft on the inside.
Salmon Gohan: This dish rocks. Hot bowl, butter, mentaiki, salmon and rice all mixed up. I could have easily ordered 2 of these.
Do call for a reservation. It's pretty popular on the weekends.
