Worth a visit

I last visited Kuru Kuru a couple of years ago. As there is a recent Groupon deal, I searched for latest reviews to see if the restaurant is worth a re-visit before I make the purchase.

Was very apprehensive with the earlier review by Dinggowhere. Nonetheless, decided to check out the restaurant yesterday.

I am happy to say that my apprehension dissipated when the 1st 2 dishes arrived, which were sashimi (salmon, yellowtail & swordfish) & pork cutlet. The former was cold & fresh. The latter, though thin, was decent.

The rest of the dishes (makis, various sushi, shishamo, ebi tempura, chicken wings, gyoza, garlic fried rice ) were OK.

My only gripes were :

Salmon teriyaki/ Salmon in butter sauce - very small pieces for each diner. Some were moist, others overdone & dry. 

Chawanmushi - bland

Grilled Saba - skin was nicely grilled, but again, dry.

Sakura dumpling - this is a dried hard mess that I had to spit out. The dorayaki is a better choice than the dumplings

Ice cream - all ok ecept the vanilla, which has strong artificial taste

Salmon roe sushi - overly salty & not so fresh.

Service
Nothing I can fault with. They brought pots )for hot ocha) & jugs (of drinks) so that you can re-fill yourself.

One of the wait staff (I think a male Filipino) even wished my husband 'Happy Father's Day'. Well, it was just a lunch, not a special celebration. Gesture appreciated, though.


So, this place is still worth a visit.

Save your money and your evening - avoid.

Terrible service (if any). I had fond memories of Kuru Kuru back when it was actually a proper restaurant, having had several good experiences dining there over the course of 2013 and early 2014.

My my... How quickly things change.

Don't bother unless you want to wait 30 mins for your first dish

Visited during dinner time with a friend. 1. First dish (tamago) arrived 30 mins later. 2. Our table only had chopsticks and we asked for soya sauce and saucer but the waitress only brought an extra set of chopsticks. Asked for it again and she gave us two saucers and walked away.. Was unable
