The best maki in Singapore!

Heard alot about Kohgrill and Sushi Bar and finally get to dine at this highly raved place. Located at Food Republic level 4, this place is a stand alone restaurant in the foodcourt.   It was 6.30pm when I arrived with 4 other friends, the queue was already building up. We waited for 30mins before the service staff directed us to a 6 seaters table and we had to share table with 2 other customers. Seating was cramp but nevertheless the place was cozy.   Almost every tables had a plate of their raved about shiok maki and the counter chefs were so busy dishing out plates after plates every other minute.   The menu is impressive, it consists of many types of sushi, sashimi, charcoal grilled dishes, noodles, rice etc.   Shiok Maki is indeed shiok! It melts in your mouth and the flavour is fabulous. The maki was wrapped with thick slices of salmon covered with a layer of sauce that looked like mayonnaise but it didn't taste queasy at all. This is definitely the best maki I have tasted.

Pitan Maki looks interesting. It was covered with a black sauce and the taste is unique. You definitely have to experience it for yourself if you visit this place.   Original Kohgrill maki is delicious, yummy! Fish roe popped in your mouth with a combination of fried seafood and coating that gave it a crunch.   Grilled Salmon belly, it crisps on the outside and the meat is so fresh and juicy inside.

White tuna sashimi is must try! Its very different from normal sashimi because it has a meaty texture, lightly marinated and yet its raw. It has a very unique taste.    Grilled Japanese Squid was very nicely grilled. It is firm and has a chewy texture.   Fried Udon is sweet and tasty. It is a good dish to share among friends especially if you want to keep your stomach space for the rest.   Overall, Kohgrill is a good place to come for a casual dinner. Do not expect fine dinning service here though as their service crews are trying very hard to dish out their plates of food and taking orders. It can be quite difficult get hold of their staffs at times but nonetheless the service is prompt and reasonable considering the fact that there is no service charge. They also provide free flow of hot green tea which is a plus point since most japanese restaurants are already charging for green tea.

bad seating

Reserved table at the place  , bt got a seat sharing with other customers who were shock as well when we took the seat. Very bad service. I dont think this should be the right service for just a table for 2 when i reserved the table. They need improvement.

It Looks Better Than It Taste

Going to start this entry by saying i am utterly disappointed! We queued for slightly more than an hour, tummies craving for scrumptious food to satisfy our hunger, only to find ourselves wishing we had eaten at the food court instead.

Worst Than Coffeeshop Jap Food - "Unshiok" Maki, Stale Salad, Dissected Squid, 30min long wait!!!

This will be my 1st & probably last time at Koh Grill & Sushi Bar. Waited 20min in line for a seat (but the line moved fairly fast & for a Sunday, I consider the wait reasonable).

All the mains were Chef Recommendations: Shiok 2nd Maki, Cod Fish et (Gindara Yaki Special) & Grilled Squid Set (Surume Ika Shio).

We were seated right at the entrance - extremely tightfit & uncomfortable. We only managed to place our order after the 3rd attempt at trying to get the waitress's attention, not to mention that she had conveniently forgotten to serve our drinks until 10min later.

The Shiok 2nd Maki arrived 15min after placing orders - unevenly sliced (overly large pieces/miserably small ones) and drenched with a full plate of sauce. I couldn't even make out the salmon that was wrapped on the outside - all i could taste was the awfully salty mayo-like sauce. For a $16.80 chef recommendation, I would probably try my luck with handrolls or something else which catches my fancy - LACK THE TASTE FACTOR & NOT WORTH THE VALUE!!!

Our rice & miso soup arrived shortly after - the worst rice i ever tasted (clumpy lumps of cold soft rice)!!!

 The grilled squid that came next was the real SHOCKER - hastily DISSECTED & strewed over the plate with stale brown lettuce which tasted bitter. I swore I received numerous stares from the table next to me & from the guys queuing next to the counter!!! - $17 for a Chef recommendation that was WORST THAN COFFEESHOP STANDARD JAP FOOD - THUMBS DOWN!!!

Last but not least, the grilled cod arrived 30min later (the long prep time was due to having the cod "rest in the microwave oven", this I quote direct from the waitress we asked). The cod was probably the only dish which passed the mark - for the same price, I would go for Najajima Suisan Grilled Fish at Takashimaya Food Basement (equally long queue but definitely worth the wait - taste as well as value wise).

Needless to say, the queue to pay was a snaking one as well. Upon my feedback, all the cashiering waitress could offer was "Sorry, I'll check with the supplier!"

Perhaps the food quality played a part but I am quite certian that the preparation, presentation & integrity for perfection was definitely below par. 

Koh Grill & Sushi Bar was a disappointment - way below expectations in terms of taste, presentation & definitely NOT WORTH the high price tag. I would gladly pay service charge & GST at Ichiban Boshi, Sushi Tei or Itacho Sushi (a tad more pricey but definitely offer more Bang for your Buck!)

Double thumbs up for service

ordered sushi and the Asari miso soup.. Sushi was great as usual but the soup was sour and lacking in miso taste. double thumbs up for service staff who spotted our displeasure with the soup without us asking and waived  it from our bill. definitely return to the place
