Fresh food, great service though a little expensive

For my ex-colleagues who drove to Tatsu, parking was not a problem. I, on the other hand, took the train to Downtown MRT station. And it’s a short 5 to 8 minutes walk from the MRT station to Asia Square Tower 2. Upon taking the escalator to level 2, do make a sharp left turn to reach Tatsu shortly. We took a wrong turn and ended up lost. Thankfully there was a friendly cleaner who helped us!

And because we reached after a big detour (within level 2), we entered Tatsu through the wrong door. The door that leads directly into the teppanyaki area is not the main entrance. And it was because we wrongly entered the teppanyaki area that we decided to change our original plan of taking the teppanyaki counter seats. Ventilation was pretty bad and the confined area really smelled of smoke. We rather give up the thrill of watching the chef’s exciting performance than to rack of smoke.

And because we came in a group of 4, sitting at the sushi counter was not practicable since the seats were all in a row. No L-corner for us to at least sit 2-2. And with that, we took table seats. Although we took table seats, we ordered most of our items omakase style. Ie, stating what we felt like having and letting the staff make recommendations. Partially because there were so many items on the menu that we did not know where to start too.

And with that, we started our dinner:-

1) Salmon roe, $12 – Sujiko. The staff said there was fresh salmon roe and we took up her recommendation. Served with grated lemon skin, this was fresh and good.

2) Monkfish liver, $12 – Ankimo. Another recommendation by the staff, this was not too bad although it’s not exactly a very difficult dish to pull off. I liked the contrasting textures of the chopped radish and thinly sliced scallion against the smooth liver.

3) Omakase sashimi (for 1 person), $40 – From the a-la carte menu.

4) Mackerel pike sashimi, $32 – Sanma sashimi. Ordered upon the staff’s recommendation, this was fresh but not exactly my favourite. Ironically, I preferred the bones which they took to deep fry. Ha.

Due to the (silly) 3000 characters limit, continue to read my review on other dishes here: PART2

10) Black sesame ice cream, $6

Located in the CBD area, Tatsu’s Asia Square outlet is catered for the working group where one can have their business meals. Which explained the use of dark colours in the dimly lit restaurant which gave a very solemn feel. I will definitely recommend Tatsu for the fresh ingredients, personalised service (we felt very loved) and good ambience.

Of course, if I were to head back to Tatsu, I would probably try their CHIJMES outlet which is more accessible for the non-CBD people.

Too much wasabi in my Sushi (2nd Experience)

Bad experience dining at Tatsu the last 2 times. They put way too much wasabi in my fatty tuna sushi. The funny thing is that the 2nd time, their manager recognised us and we specifically asked them to reduce the amount of wasabi in the sushi. Nonetheless, (thank godness I checked) there was an obscene amount of wasabi on my fatty tuna sushi. We requested to talk to the chef, a young chap and he said that for fatty tuna, we usually put more wasabi because it's fatty. In the first place, we have already requested for less and putting this amount of wasabi, as shown in the picture, is way too much!

Will not be going back again definitely.

Paid $620 for the dinner just to get chased away by the restaurant

I used to like Tatsu for its Teppanyaki, not any more.

 I was at its Chijmes outlet a year ago, had a great time. After its recent renovation, I went to the same restaurant again with my family yesterday, I was looking for a great night out, but it turned out to be a disaster!

 If I were to give the restaurant a new tagline, it would be “Tatsu – the Teppanyaki fast food”. Starting from the moment we sat down, the clock was ticking. Our 8-course Wagyu dinner was fully served in less than 30 mins. I thought the whole point of eating Teppanyaki is to have every dish served sizzling hot, but by the time I started to eat my main dish the food was already cold.

 Just when I was about to fish the last bite of my dessert, I were told “Sorry, our customers are coming, can you please take your leave?” I was shocked and furious. In my 30 years’ dining experience, from McDonald to Michelin-star restaurants, never have I seen anyone chasing away their customers like that, not mentioning the fact that I just had paid more than S$600 for the meal. This is utterly unacceptable by any standards.

 I think the Tatsu just earned another tagline for their service, “Tatsu – the next customer is always more important than you.”

 While trying to maximize profit by squeezing in as many customers as possible and increasing customer turn-over rate, the dining experience has been severely compromised. As an ex-fan, I am greatly disappointed.

OK food, worst service ever

I have been a fan of Tatsu Sushi. This was the first visit after renovation. It was my wife's birthday dinner.
 
 I made reservation but the seats were not ready. We were asked to wait. It’s OK that happens some time. Staffs brought in chairs and squeeze us in. The customers on opposite side were 6 people and we were 8 people so you can imagine how small space we had. There were a wine bottle and caps in front of me. Those were the ones people next to me was drinking. I do not blame those customers because we were so packed and there was no room.
 
 Sushi was OK. No matter how good they were, it did not taste great service was below average.
 
 Toward the end of dinner, a group of Caucasian people came in. Staff asked me to move to open space for them. I told the staff that we are finishing up and ask them to wait. When I was about to leave, one of Caucasian people waited ask me to apologize her for not making space for them. I told her there’s no reason why I need to apologize her. She said it was her birthday. I told her it was my wife’s birthday. As she has right to enjoy her dinner, we also have the right to do so. The restaurant should have done better job managing reservation. I know they need to make money, but that should not be done at the cost of customer experience. This was the worst dinner experience I have ever had in Singapore.
