With its price point, Nagomi isn't a restaurant that you would eat at regularly. Mostly for celebrations or intimate gatherings. Which is why expectations are always higher.
Having not visited in the last 6 months, was really disappointed by the food quality and service standards. On the menu this time round were sashimi(which was still good) and grilled eggplant with miso (miso just totally overwhelmed the eggplant, and one can't tell where the miso ends and the eggplant starts).
Soy braised topshells in soy (cold dish) was also really fishy. The grilled fish had potential but the choice of the chef not to clean out the belly, meant that half of the fish was covered with bitter stomach juices....not my cuppa tea.
Grilled wagyu beef was not bad, but the saving grace for me was the seafood porridge. Dessert was a very normal slice of rock melon.
Service was also dismal. Even though the restaurant sat less than 16 guests while we were there, plates weren't changed and drinks weren't topped up. When they were, it was done so grudgingly whereby we had to also empty out our own plates for them...
For $120++/Person, I think there are much better choices around...do hope they beef up
