This small Japanese restaurant offers many sushi, sashimi bento and other options.
I respect this restaurant very much. The owner is truly going after quality and does not compromise this by trying to expand. His chefs and waitresses have been around for ages. He cooks personally on alternate days. The restaurant's doors are always close and they don't advertise. You probably won't think about going in when you walk pass, but its always full house and filled with Japanese (need to say more?). The miso soup is really special - not just with miso paste but also filled with prawns, clams, fish, etc. The sushi is really good - sushi rice made 'just right', laid with really fresh toppings. The mackeral is fantastic - juicy and fresh. Likewise for the eel - cooked just right, not too sweet with the source, meaty and juicy. The tempura is fried to the right level - tender, crispy but not too much flour. Its also good value for $$$ - lunch for 2 is about $60 with top quality food. They don't take reservations, go during off peak hours to avoid a long wait.
had lunch last week. Sushi rice is hard and dry. raw fish does not taste fresh. think standards have dropped. Chef basically put Slab of fish on rice. tamago is a little wet. Looking at display of fish at counter, some had turned darkish in colour esp one of the raw scallops. It's shocking that this place is not even comparable to a sushi chain like sushi tei. They used to be quite good.
Sashimi is fresh, but food is slightly overpriced, as is the norm in most Japanese establishments in Singapore. And the servers have all the charm of a neo-Nazi biker gang. One shoved my chair (while I was sitting on it, mind you) and barked at me twice in the course of ten minutes. Beyond horrible.
