Its name captures the concept of this Japanese marketplace-style eatery. You use ice cream sticks to place your order as you roam form stall to stall, and your meal will be prepared right in front of you at the open-concept kitchen. Daily high tea buffet available from 2.30pm to 5.30pm.
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. We don't need to queue for tables unlike the Nihon Mura at The Cathay and the restaurant here also bigger than the one at The Cathay. The waiter/waitress are nice and friendly. Their service are also quick and responsive. The restaurant decor is like cafe - not too bright and comfortable with soft music as the background. I'm highly recommended this restaurant to hang out with friends and family.
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 slightly less than others such as Minoriya and really not worth that little saving.
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 and ended up with a foul mood. Can u imagine calling for buffet but still hungry leaving that restaurant cos most of the food didn't come? -.-
We called buffet for 2 pax. Went in around 8pm +, last order was 9pm, but omg.. I seriously feel customer service sucks to the max(read on to see what I mean). We were given this pamphlet order form, placed out first order abt 8.15pm.
We ordered salmon, scallops, chawanmushi, some random sushis, maki, yakitori, soba, ramen, tempura and blah blah - Most of it didn't come anyway, and i really mean it.
** I'm just gonna run through this, as what I wanna review is the customer service! **
IMO the salmon slices are fresh, but a lil too thick. Scallops are ok. Chawanmushi is perfect to me. The sushis on the converyor are super limited in choices(can count with 1 pair of hands, maybe less), maybe due to the time we went there but whatever. yakitori is also yummy - soft, tasted just right, just that it wasn't grilled enough so it looks lk skewered chicken in sauce with no charred color at all. ordered lobster salad aged maki and the normal maki, the lobster salad is quite tasty, but its cold. Seems lk its been left there for abt more than 20mins before it was served infront of me. My normal maki didnt come, soba, ramen, tempura.. ALL DIDNT COME. I really have no idea why am I paying for buffet when all my food didnt come?! Seriously, I'd be better off a la carte.
Guess what? I ordered 7 dishes and until 9.30pm when the store is about to close, only 3 arrived! And no one said whatsoever, no apologies for waiting, no one even told us how long we have to wait. We sat there lk dumb fools. And hello.. we are customers, if we are still there sitting and eating/drinking. Pls dont ever say "can u pls pass over the wasabi and sauces" - they were putting on this trolly thingy cos they're closing soon. Its not even 9.30 pm. Isn't that plain RUDE. And did i hear the sorry or excuse me, or am i deaf?
Stay away from revenue house, just go elsewhere for nihon mura.
