Pleasant No Frills Japanese Dining

I was in the Cuppage Area and decided to try out some Japanese food - hence chanced upon Tamaya Dining and off we go. Seeing Japanese clientele, I felt even more comfortable entering the premises.

I started with the 5 Kind Sashimi ($49.80), which had slices of salmon, tuna, red snapper and two varietals of yellow-tail. The fish were very fresh and served at room to slightly chilled temperature, although I would not exactly call this "five kinds", more like four maybe.

From the grilled menu I then had the Tebasaki ($6), consisting of two lightly grilled tasty chicken wings as well as the Chicken Liver ($5), which was slightly grilled so it still had the slight mushy bite to it.

I also tried the Saba Yaki ($11.80), which turned out as expected.

My favourite dish for the night though had to be the Mentaiko Pasta ($18.70). The cod roe sauce was well mixed into the boiled spaghetti and topped with salmon roe - really addictive.

Overall, food was above average and prices were reasonable. The only gripe I had is that the entire second floor was manned by just one service staff - and it did not help that she was rather inexperienced and could not answer questions about the menu. Thus, even calling for assistance or even the bill was a chore as I had to leave my seat several times to figure out where to get help.

Tame Tamaya

This place was recommended by a Japanese friend of mine when I asked her to recommend a nice Japanese "izakaya" (Japanese pub, basically) for a first date (with someone else).

You get to choose to sit outside, by the sushi bar or upstairs. We chose upstairs, which was quite quiet.

Tamaya Dining

The two-story Tamaya Dining is tucked away discreetly in a long row of restaurants and bars in Cuppage Terrace. The whole place was filled with native Japanese, all laughing loudly and downing what seemed to be copious amounts of sake.

 We promptly asked our friendly server for some recommendatio

Tamaya Dining

We were quite "lost" with the varieties in the menu, but it did help with the english subtitles, but I though more pictures in the menu would be more helpful. Anyway, after like a very very long time, we finally decided on the items to order to share among us. Gals mah, just cant make up our minds!
