I've always wondered why Sakae Sushi manages to attract such long queues everytime I pass by an outlet - especially the one at Marina Square. Previously, I had the salmon sashimi and potato salad bento set. From my impression there's nothing really outstanding about the food there. Yet we didn't know what to eat at Marina Square so we decided on some Japanese food.
After spending time just to queue up and waiting for our food, we were served food that didn't meet our expectations. Portions wise, they were in fact relatively mediocre, especially so if you compare the food to Sakae's other local competitors like Nihon Mura. The salmon don, though fresh, had only 6-7 slices of sashimi in it. In contrast at Nihon Mura, there's a whole bowl of sashimi at the same price, without compromising on quality!
I ordered the Oyster Katsu Don, which they said was new on the menu. Overall, this wasn't too bad, apart from the insides of the oysters being a little too watery - thus making the rice even more wet (there's already sauce on it!)
There was nothing memorable about the service standards there. As I've said, I still fail to understand why there's always the never-ending queue outside Sakae Sushi outlets. There're better Japanese cuisine options out there.
