I’ve tried eating at this restaurant twice: the first time was for dinner at their Vivo City outlet and the 2nd time for lunch at their Far East Square outlet.
I didn’t enjoy the dinner as I found their kushiyaki (something like yakitori sticks) were too saltish for my taste. However, the dinner set was worth the price I paid (about S$35 nett if I can remember correctly) as it came with 5 sticks of kushiyaki, garlic rice, fruits, hot green tea, 1 tiny bowl of salad, miso soup, pickles and 1 tofu cheesecake. Service at the Vivo City outlet was excellent I must say.
The kushiyaki that I ate during lunch was less saltish and more palatable. Again, I ordered the mixed kushiyaki set. This time, it came with 4 sticks of kushiyaki (2 mushrooms, pork with a bit of cheese sprinkled on top, pork with asparagus and 1 prawn), 1 tiny bowl of salad, 1 miso soup, pickles, 1 small bowl of potato mashed with carrots and 1 cold glass of green tea. For these, I paid S$22.95 nett. Very good value for money. My colleagues had their Nabeyaki Gindara Udon set (Japanese claypot noodles with prawn tempura, vegetables, egg and choice of chicken or cod fish; gindara is cod fish) and Hotate Kariage Don set (sea scallops and vegetables lightly battered and fried).
The Nabeyaki Gindara Udon set costs S$27.40 nett including 1 cold glass of green tea and the Hotate Kariage Don set costs S$23.80 nett including 1 hot glass of green tea. The green tea costs S$1.77 nett and is an optional item.
Service at the Far East Square is not as good as the Vivo City outlet but given that it was a very busy lunch crowd (the whole restaurant was packed), it was understandable.
