Sankai Japanese Restaurant provides affordable, quality Japanese food. Opt for their extensive Japanese buffet or ala carte menu to enjoy all-time favourites such as sushi, sashimi, and ebi tempura.
Awesome Japanese buffet reminiscent of Irodori or Ikoi which have a similar concept. Sashimi are thickly sliced and fresh. Sushi and other cooked food are quite enjoyable too. Service can be slow at busy times. Worth the money if you are a Sashimi lover. Check out below for more information http://theaugbunnies.blogspot.com/2016/04/food-review-sankai-liang-seah-street.html
Been to Sankai many times and yes service can be slow during peak timings. I have however learnt the trick to start ordering the next batch of food when you are about half done with the first batch. You won't end up drinking lots of tea because you are bored of the wait. If you aren't a fan of buffet, you can choose from their set lunches and dinner which are also of good value. Read detailed review here!
We purchased an online deal from Qoo10 for S$26.90 each. For an online price of under S$30, this place is surely value for money. The ambience is warm and cozy. Good for a hangout with friends.
The service staff are very polite and helpful, we can see that they make an effort and will do their best to attend to the customer's needs instantaneously.
The food serving flow from the kitchen is slow though. We ordered, waited, ate, then order again, then wait again, food came, ate. Then ordered again.... then wait again. This restn. should introduce and implement integrated e-menu using iPads or tablets so that customers can place orders directly, instead of using pen and paper.
The kitchen sometimes missed out our orders, but it's no big deal. Just have to understand empathize with the waiting staff as they need to manage the crowd. Hence, small error margin is inevitable.
The food is fresh, though the sashimi cuts are very small and thin, and spread is limited. Then again it's ala carte buffet, we ordered till we had sufficient to fill our sashimi cravings. The restn. is somewhat "stingy" with the wasabi supply - according to the wait staff, it's to prevent wastage, hence the control. We just had to request for more wasabi to go with the sashimi - again it's not a major cause for concern.
On the whole, I would recommend anyone who have a lazy afternoon to spare, and do not mind the slow serving speed of the food. The great service attitude of the staff alone is a draw for me to repeat my patronage to this restn.
