Great place to chill, relax and bond

When I first walked in, like all Jap restaurants, it smelled of a strange mixture of vinegar rice and fish. That could put you off a little but if you're a true Jap cuisine fan, this is only assuring that you're at a right place. Of course, the smell wasn't overpowering and it would soon be forgotten once you take in the unusual decor around you.

More pleasant than not, the difference of those contemporary restaurants in town and those of fine dining compared to this is stark. This place was cosy, unpretentious, and intriguing in their food item display. To top it off, the service staff were classically patient and polite albeit if you had to wait for an available, alert eye. But that's all good if your aim is simply to enjoy a relaxing evening without uptight service which could come across irritating.

The food was satisfactory and for some dishes, a surprising delight - like the salmon sashimi, their variety of fish, and their eclectic selection of dessert and drink.

If you aren't as picky as me for food but seek for great company with friends or your beloved one in an environment conducive for interaction and chat, then this place will rank well. Cheers!

like a canteen

Have tried a few Japanese buffets in Singapore and this probably ranks as the worst.

Atmosphere in the restaurant is like a large canteen. Food is ok but not great. We were lucky to be there on a quiet evening though so we didn't have to wait long for our food.

the price of the buffet is only

customer service at revenue hse sucks!

The restaurant is situated just a 5min walk from Novena MRT. We went on a weekend night, so we had to queue outside for quite some time. The restaurant IMO is a lil too dim. Lights anyone? We're eating sushi, not candle light dinner.

Sorry if I sound lk a b**** but seriously, I went there happily

definitely cheap @ 99cents per plate, but of sub-standard quality

I would only recommend this place if you're a boy and you are a huge eater (ie someone who can eat stacks and stacks of sushi/ sashimi etc). This would be a great place for you to satisfy this 'buffet-type' craving for jap food.

Otherwise, the quality of jap food at Nihon is rather sub-standard. The

Great Place for Hang Out

This is one of the best place for hang out with friends. We may pick the sushi that we like (self-service) and asked the chef to prepare for us if we couldn't find the sushi that we want at the sushi bar. My favorite sushi is salmon sushi. All the sushi price are only 99 cents except for red plate.

99 cents for a plate of sushi from a conveyor belt

A good place to meet up with friends for a leisurely dinner. Conveyor belt has large variety of sushi, all priced at 99 cts per plate of 2 pieces of sushi. Place is quite authentic Japanese and has lots of seats. Not crowded in evening, probably due to its office building venue. Service is so-so a
