Smoke free grill and Meat heaven!

This is a relatively new edgy, modern and upbeat Yakiniku restaurant located at Bugis + (previously known as Illuma). First off, Yakiniku = Grilled meat in Japanese, therefore this will be a paradise for meat lovers! Over here, they offer meat ranging from beef to pork, chicken along side with some seafood too.

Clueless, inattentive and misleading staff.

The photos shown outside the restaurant front depicts the word "buffet" with photos thick waygu beef. After being seated and asking the waygu beef, we told that we had to "add-on" several dollars per pax for it(apparently it is not included in the buffet price of $32).

The same staff who brought us in also told us that the drinks were free flow. After ordering a round of drinks, we were told by another staff that the drinks are chargeable every round except for the green tea which is free flow. However, the "free-flow" green tea is not complimentary nor included in the buffet too ($7 per pax).

All in all, 2 of us spent $100 for a $32/pax buffet after all the "hidden charges".

Many of the staff members were also rude, not approachable and did not know their menu well. The choice of food for the "basic $32 menu" only contains 14 food items. Seafood items were not fresh either.

We were left feeling very cheated and disappointed. It's even more shocking to know that Rocku belongs to the parent company Creative Eateries. We expected more than this.

Average

Buffet does not include beverage and a jug of lemon tea costs about $13.90. Not much choices of food and side, price can't compare with other BBQ and it's not worth the price.

Horrific Groupon Experience

My army friend kindly purchased 5 groupon vouchers for us. Granted good things never come cheap and vice versa. But the queue system was so terrible we started queuing at 6.30 and were told we could only be seated at 7.45 (no promises). The waitress also was very reactive and did not bother to address the situation better. We ended up eating elsewhere if many people behind us facing the same problem. I strongly believe its the management's inability to handle its customer flow that is its fatal flaw. Seriously if you have bought groupons for this dont bother as my wife and I decided to buy over my friend's voucher for another day and afta calling in were told to wait indefinitely again. Serious waste of money. No reviews for food were given because we did not even get a chance to smell it. Poor poor poor. Never again.

Weekend Lunch

Service had more misses than hits, probably because we were there during an off-peak timing. For the full review : http://repolitlebijou.blogspot.sg/2014/03/rocku-yakiniku.html
