go-to place in the East for casual Japanese fix

Megumi is a casual eatery in the Siglap area that many East-siders head to for inexpensive Japanese fare. My favourite is the dobinmushi (teapot soup) which comes with generous chunks of chicken, crab meat and mushrooms. At peak periods it can get quite crowded and you might have to settle for an outdoor table (not too advisable in Singapore's heat) but service is prompt and the food is satisfying and very affordable.

Alright. So I am upset enough to write a review. The ambience of the place is bad for the price range. $20+ to near $30 for a Bento, and the sitting is like a fast food joint, designed to maximise capacity.  It may try to pass off as a boutique Jap restaurant, but I think that the standard is below that of Sakae Sushi even.

Ordering is with a tablet, and no paper menu so 6 persons have to take turns looking at one tablet.  Ordering can take a while. The food menu is also not very friendly.

Food quality is not bad but it's precisely that. One expects better for the prices being sought. Having a standalone each for 6 pax, the bill came to close $150, i.e. $30 per head. 

I was also told to spend only 1.5 hours for dinner when I reserved. Frankly, I think the ambience and quality did not justify such a request, which is common for a place where food is of great quality, which this place is not

Lastly, the cold Ocha is $2.50 per cup. Most places are about dollar, if chargeable.  Frankly I am disappointed and will not return to eat.

One of the few japanese restaurants around siglap... sad to say the food was below par. If you are a japanese restaurant and you are unable to get the basics right, then there isnt a reason for a return visit. The shoyu ramen - broth was tasty but the noodles were extremely soggy and the char siew was dry and chewy. Gyoza was served burnt. Chewy and filling was bland. I ve had way better frozen gyozas. Sushi took a long time to be served and rice wasnt of good quality and tasted bland. Supermarket sushi over at cold storage tastes way better. Unagi fried rice once again was bland. very stingy with the unagi pieces. food in general here is bland bland bland. save your money and grab a meal elsewhere instead. plus, the ipad on which to place your orders is extremely troublesome. what happened to good ol servers to take your orders down?

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
