This is the 3rd time I came here with my wife. Strangely first two times I did not really have much of an impression. I suspect it is because we always ordered 2 baked rice which was too filling and also because I was slightly prejudiced against their less than traditional japanese decor. Also, I did not like their sashimi which was not finely cut.
Anyway, last night I enjoyed the food. We ordered a very nicely grilled marinated with miso beef prime rib. Very very nice. With chargrilled bits and lots of melted fat taste. We ordered a Aji sashimi which was decent. But this is the only area I do not like too much. First they display their sashimi badly at the counter with too many pieces. Spoil the appetite. Then the aji was served, it was fresh but their staff did not know that aji needs a vinegar sauce and not the usual soy sauce. They did deep fry the bones and it was competently done.
Other dishes we ordered was the ikura sushi (not bad, fresh), a very interesting alaskan crab leg meat with spinach stew thingy. Different but not spectacular.
What made me feel should come try is their desserts. We had the tofu cheese cake (tasted like good cheese cake) and a very good black sesame pudding. A great departure from the usual green tea, redbean , way too sweet japanese dessert.
We also ordered a baked pork rice. Good and the pork was fatty which went well with the rice.
Overall, good experience. Service ok except for the lack of knowledge. Sashimi fresh but lack presentation. Cold Sake was average. They do allowyou to pick your cups though...
COME HERE FOR A SLIGHTLY NON_TRADITIONAL JAPANESE MEAL!

I went there yesterday for birthday celebration. We had a great time there. The food was served promptly. Th staff was really nice, everyone of them. I am not sure if yesterday was monday, the restaurant not crowded hence they can pay attention to customers well. But all in all, I am happy with the choice made for going there for bdae celebration. This is my forth time there within few months and the food quality has been still up to my standard so far. Highly recommend. The ambience looks good too
Considered an exquisite Japanese restaurant (see pictures at : http://mrupupup.blogspot.sg/2012/12/sun-with-moon-japanese-dining.html , Sun with Moon Japanese Dining & Cafe served excellent Japanese dishes. Mrupupup tried out the Sun With Moon at Wheelock Place (501 Orchard Road, #03-15). Mrupupup just felt happy trying Sun with Moon for dinner. Mrupupup had the mango sushi - super nice ($6.80 for 4 pieces), avocado salmon salad ($9.80) (Mrupupup only eats this expensive salad in town), and their signature seafood Kamameshi ($21) and Salmon Kamameshi ($16.90). Kamameshi is a form of steam rice cooked with ingredients like chicken, salmon, sea weed, chestnuts and other ingredients in a wooden pot which captured the flavours. Just loved the taste of Kamameshi rice. The food was very nice and the place was buzzing with many people. Everybody came to enjoy good Japanese food. Take note one might need to queue for half an hour to one hour for seats during their peak hours (likely dinner time). Well, got to wait patiently for yummy food. Mrupupup see the food and just want to eat it all up!
