After my horrifying experience in Old Town just down e road (hence the hell description above), we trodded off to eat dinner.
We are drawn by the giant poster outside the restaurant promoting their 10th anniversary dinner set. The lobster tempura had my bf stop in his tracks and trying to convince me to take e rest of the dishes in the set (cos they are raw and he doesn't eat sashimi).
th waitress saw our hesitation, came out and try to ask us to give their promotional dinner a try.
We are surprised by her warm demeanour and decided to give the place a try.
the menu has a lot of interesting, out of the norm dishes. The Nara special maki reminds me of e Shiok maki at Koh's grill so we decided to try other dishes.
we tried their beef with special sauce which is quite nice and tender but to be honest, not very special. lol..
we also tried their cheesy mentai potato which my bf felt shortchanged on cos there are no sign of the mentai but I loved it cos it's super cheesy and crispy.
the gindara nabe is nice also and their chiraishi has loads of avo and sashimi chunks.
the sashimi is very fresh and firm which I think is the measure for any Japanese restaurant.
the service is very good and prompt. I noticed that when they see any guests looking for service, the cooks will immediately called out to e waiters and manager and they immediately rushes out. the teamwork is good as no one tries to shirk from their duties. whoever happen to pass out table will offer to clear our empty plates and top up our tea. most of them are singaporeans as well, I noticed.
I think it is great with the promotion cos the dishes costs only $10 each as compared to the $22 on a la carte menu. So try to come when they have the promotion.
The place is almost full when we left at 7.30pm.
