30licious meal is back in town. The collaboration between HungryGoWhere and American Express brought us $30++ deals in 30 days. But not to worry, if you do not have Amex card, the price will be $35++. Reservations need to be made online through HungryGoWhere.

Sankai Japanese Restaurant is located at Liang Seah Street, or more popular known as steamboat lane, as most of the restaurants here are known for their steamboats. Browsing through the menu available online, we realise Sankai offered one of the most complete meal.

We started with Spicy jelly fish and Salmon and yellow tail sashimi. A good start for the jelly fish, the spiciness is very mild, more to open up your appetite. The sashimi are fresh and the cutting is thick and solid.

Cucumber salad, Japanese egg omelette and grilled salmon cheek with salt. The cucumber salad come in spicy pickled form. It is very spicy, has a closer taste to Singapore Ahcar, rather than Japanese version. Egg is sweet and solid, nicely done. The salmon cheek is fresh and moist, grilled to perfection. The best dish for the night for me.

Grilled beef with teriyaki sauce. Grilled to medium rare and bask with teriyaki sauce. The beef portion is very good, tender and succulent. For non-beef eater, they provide chicken teriyaki as replacement. We find the teriyaki goes well rice, so we ask the Miso soup, rice and pickles to be brought up first.

Prawn, eggplant and pumpkin tempura are nicely executed. The batter are crispy, light and thin. Seal the juice of the prawn, pimpkin and eggplant nicely. For sushi, Salmon, crabmeat aburi maki are lightly torched, and it just melts in your mouth. However, QC noted that the rice used in the sushi and the served in the meal not round and fluffy.

The final protein dish is Braised pork belly with sake & soya sauce. The pork belly is very tender and flavourful. However, the braising gravy are very bold in sweetness and saltiness. I was lucky that my pork belly has minimum fats, however LD's one has a very thick fats in between.

Dessert - Japanese ice cream. This time it is red bean ice cream with red beans. It is creamy and sweet.

The restaurant is simply decorated in Japanese there. There is one private room, and during that night it was occupied by a group of Japanese. Service is very good. We noticed that the rice used has a more long grain compare to pearl version and we ask the lady boss about this. She look into this and even show us the uncooked grain and assured us they only used American Koshuka Pearl Rice. However, she also agreed that the rice not as round and pearly as it should be and and she will give this feedback to their supplier.

Overall, Sankai Japanese Restaurant delivery on its promise. It served a well rounded menu and the price are reasonable. We look forward for our next visit. Kanpai!! Cheers!!

Went to this restaurant using Groupon by paying SGD30/pax on our group anniversary yesterday, the food wise is standard but given it is ala-carte buffet, the serving is slow, we ordered 3 times but most of the food are not served completely, partial served partial not. You need to expect to wait 30 minutes from the time you place order. Our group is leaving by 2pm and we had informed the staff earlier that we couldn't wait too long, however when checking with the staff there, they can ask me what do we want by showing us their face. The staff can further telling us that we are in the queue, thus we end up leave the restaurant on the spot without full stomach. Well this is the first and last we went to this restaurant. Unless you have dont mind to wait and not seeking for money value buffet, you can try this restaurant and expect a poor planning despite earlier reservation made and bad service.

1 for 1 dinner set meal was $68. The dishes served was ok enough but I wouldn't have paid $68 per pax for this. But $68 for 2 pax was a good deal. Small cosy restaurant with seats available on a Friday night even though the neighbouring restaurants were mostly full house.
