Best grilled salmon in town

Food/Drink 5| Value 5| Ambience 4| Service 5
Total Review: 1

Everytime i come here i always order their grilled salmon with buttered soya sauce. My ultimate favorite! I also love the asparagus with blue cheese sauce. And their sushi menu is quite good too! one of my favorite japanese resto in singapore. Although a bit warm, its perfect for a after-work dinner and drinks. おいしいかった!

Stick to Wagyu Beef Shabu Shabu

Wagyu Beef Shabu Shabu was pretty good and ambience is pleasant. Salmon with cream is not bad for those that like butter.

However, other a-la-carte dishes can be improved and disappointing for the price. E.g. Mixed yakitori plate were well grilled but some of the meats were either not flavourful, not tender, had strange hard bits in it or just lots of fats. Cod fish was surprisingly dry. 

Also, rather limited selection of dishes that can be used under the Entertainer App.

Wagyu beef !!!

good quiet place, away from the big crowd.  The buffet sashimi and wagyu beef is really good and will go back to eat there again.  And a good range of Japanese sake to choose. I prefer the outdoors and a good place where friends can eat , enjoy and talk.

Good Value Set Lunch

Food/Drink 3| Value 4| Ambience 4| Service 3

I have walked past this place many times and finally decided to make on online reservation for lunch. The setting is a dark, cozy one with the vibe of a mid to fine dining environment which is popular with Japanese tai tais.

Looking at the different options, I decided to indulge myself with the Business Set Lunch ($35), which was the most premium of the options available.

The meal started with a pork belly salad. It was a generous portion of pork belly and was tasty, but definitely defied the word "healthy" being associated with "salads".

I then had the sushi and sashimi course, which consisted of salmon, tuna, prawn, swordfish and squid sushi together with slices of salmon, tuna and white fish tuna. Fish was fresh and the rice had a good level of vinegrette in it. Nice

Next was the Dobin Mushi, a tea pot soup that was also quite tasty itself.

This was followed by some prawn and vegetable tempura (tempura moriwase). The oil used was quite fresh and the prawns had a nice firm bite to it.

The main course was some beef and cod slides and finally for dessert, some light sorbet to end it all.

At this price point, I must say that portions are generous and one cannot complain.
