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.
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.
