Tatsu is an integration of both Sushi and Teppanyaki giving customers more food choices as well as different dining experiences. It has a full fledged exclusive sushi bar counter, chic teppanyaki performance counter and private dining rooms.
Better than the average Japanese lunch outlet in the CBD, and prices are not excessive. However, the food is nothing to write home about - less good value than Sushi Tei.
We were treated our first meal when we came back to Singapore and it was pretty amazing. There were 6 of us. We had a huge platter of sashimi and my favourite is the sea urchin uni and the akagai ark shell. Everything is very fresh and delicious. The toro also deserves a special mention. There was also a dish that I forgot the name but it was awesome, it was a special salad with tempura crumbs. Service was attentive and we had no complains overall.
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.
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.
