decent japanese food

decent japanese food at this place I’ve seen frequently touted as good-value and decent quality, both compliments I agree with. I did imagine, however, that the place was a rather more high-end establishment (perhaps on the same level as sushi kuu) – but it’s more akin to a (slightly more) refined sushi tei.   there’s a good selection of bento sets that make for good value, as well as a decent a la carte section for greater variety. the mains range from sushi to suitability (lots of springy noodles and tender beef in a suitably sweet broth), with sides of anything from sashimi to teriyaki chicken – and what we got was pretty tasty, and serviceable enough for a post-work dinner or hanging with friends.

good food, and a nice sit-down in the area.

Looked promising but...

Was walking with friend for hours searching for a nice place that serves Japanese cuisine and sashimi (from orchard to cityhall to suntec) and we finally settled for Rakuzen at Millenia Walk after reading the menu that looked quite promising.

We had

Salmon Sashimi - 7 pieces for $13. Was quite fresh, thick and satisfying overall that we ordered another plate.

Yakiniku Beef Don - According to my friend, it was quite normal and unimpressive. Its not too bad though..but perhaps not worth the price at $14. Given a chance, I'd try the Chicken Katsu Don instead cos it looks good in the menu..(but who really knows, can't judge a don by its appeal).

Cha Soba - $10. WAS THE MOST DISAPPOINTING CHA SOBA I had eaten in Singapore and trust me for being an absolute cha soba fan. First of all the dipping sauce (soba tsuyu) was quite tasteless even though I had mixed in the quail egg, sesame and seaweed. Secondly, the soba was overcooked, hard and soggy that it was difficult to chew and couldn't really absorb the sauce. There was hardly any distinct cha (tea) aroma nor flavor at all. Lastly I always expect my cha soba to come chilled with mini ice cubes or BE chilled at the very least. This was in room temperature.. and coupled with the bad taste.. I just couldn't bring myself to finish half the bowl. Sigh.

Overall despite the rather tasty sashimi and nice ambiance, I would not return.

Pretty good Japanese food

Went to this restaurant for some jap food. The menu is Pretty extensive, from sashimi to sushi to ramen and Katsu don. Taste pretty good but felt very thirsty after the dinner. Good selection of sake too. They do have the outdoor seatings. Price wise, very reasonable.

Exploring the Wild Side

Succulent beef sushi roll and fresh sashimi salad are a must-try! For more details of the review, check out: http://theurbanwire.com/2011/11/05/rakuzen/

Fresh Sashimi Only

I have just been there few days ago, the business looked good compared to other restaurant. We have ordered ala-carte and set meal for dinner. The first to arrive was the salmon belly sashimi, indeed very fresh and it tasted yummy. However, subsequently for other dishes which were cooked one, totally great disappointment. I have ordered the cod fish, there were many burnt at its skin and meat as well, and the portion was quite small too.
