The environment is very nice. Staff is friendly and service is quite good. Food price is reasonable and tastes good. A good place for relax and casual dinner.

a good catch up with friends at random japanese restaurant in orchard. It was easy to locate the restaurant but when we look through the food menu, we are not clear what restaurant is trying to place themselves in singapore market, either to go authentic japanese food or more like bento style takeaway menu, with only one page of sashimi menu (no sushi menu at all)

For me, it looks more like takeaway menu.

i tried pork belly and beef on hot stone rice set, it was nice but the miso soup is too salty, you can feel the MSG effect after leaving the restaurant.

This is the smallest chawanmushi portion i have seen in my life! i think the portion is only 02 teaspoon of chawanmushi and thats it! miserable portion and it was an adult set meal, please improve on that and not sacrificing customer experience

The drinks are good but the staff service was really bad. ordered wasabi for so many times, and even staff felt apologetic to us after looking at us, that staff know they forget to bring us wasabi. i would say we waited for wasabi for 15 minutes? it is not a palace, it is just a small restaurant. why 15 minutes?

overall, we will not recommend this place to anyone for japanese cuisine.

Really comfort food for the family. Spoilt for choice with great variety of entrees and portion sizes to suit individual taste buds. Only one minus which is the restaurant a bit too warm. may be can relook into the spot lights used.

Ordered the grilled golden eye fish set that is not in menu. Also had grilled pork belly and salmon sashimi. Sashimi is fresh and thick slices. Pork belly taste good. The chawanmushi is small. Prices seem reasonable relative to other similar Japanese restaurants. Service is good.

A good catch up with a friend after a year!
She recommended this place as one of her favourite place whenever she come to Orchard Central!

After our shopping at Donki? I decided we should try this place since Onee-san likes it so much. Must be nice desyo?

Confused and disappointed too (mixed feeling ne)..the meal set I ordered was easily cool off? The Kinmedai meal set was disappointed! The fish supposed to be grilled and crunchy. But? Is was so fishy, soft, full of scales and pretty un-fresh. I was shocked of this meal because the fishy stinky taste leaves in my mouth for hours even after brushing. Never have that even with sushi of sashimi

Not recommended!..However? Try at your own risk
