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.

Unfortunately very over priced

Demand remains very high in Siglap for good Japanese food, and with Megumi being a small restaurant they are often busy.
Quality of food is ok, nothing exceptional, and it is an ambitious menu to complete - something visible when some dishes are not up to par.
Ambiance is less Japanese as one would expect and the tablet menu ordering is not optimal, as noticed in other reviews.
Apart from the food quality variation, it is also quite over priced, especially when considering the east coast location. You will easily rack up to $30 per person, as mentioned earlier.
Perhaps the most annoying detail is that they charge $1 for water, and that they don't serve normal tap water at all.
Hopefully they will rectify a few details and improve, but unless you are desperate for Japanese food in Siglap, I would recommend you stay away currently.

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.
