I visited this place with my parents for lunch on a Saturday. Ordered two bento sets, one was a saba with salmon sashimi, the other was teriyaki chicken and a grilled saba. Also ordered a tempura moriawase and a salmon avocado maki roll.
When the bentos came they looked nothing like that on the menu picture. The slices of salmon sashimi measured 3cm in length and 1cm in thickness, looking so miserable in the bento box. The saba fish was the kind that was preserved and left a nauseating tingling sensation in the mouth. My teriyaki chicken was basically a grilled fillet of chicken with char-flavoured black sauce, nothing close to a proper teriyaki flavour.
When the salmon avocado maki came I thought it would be a redeeming grace but the sushi rice was so poorly done, in one bite you would have mushy rice and bits of hard rice. It's like they overcooked a batch then tried to salvage it by undercooking another batch and then mixed them together.
Long story short, don't come here expecting proper Japanese food. It's Singaporean-Japanese at best.
Cost $55 for what I would consider $30 food.
Had to go next door to toastbox to wash away the nausea with a strong cup of coffee.
