Despite being located at the basement level of Paya Lebar Square, it was difficult not to find the restaurant when the queue lines were snaking and that I queued up for almost an hour before getting a counter seat.

My first impression of my Charcoal-grilled Dried Atka Mackerel Set (S$17.90) was that it was more suited for people who were good in handling fish bones, because no matter how I ate it, I could pick out a piece of fish bone each time I got some meat with my chopsticks. The next thing that struck me for this dish was that the fish was much on the salty side, probably due to the salt used in preserving the freshness of the fish. If you were able to manage these two aspects of the dish well enough, go ahead and choose this, because it was something not so commonly found in restaurants outside.

Regardless of what you would choose, you might have already realised that diners would stroll down the free-flow salad bar a couple of times, as they offered some fresh vegetables, Japanese salads and also simple desserts to complete the experience. Honestly, that could be a big reason why many would return after a really satisfying meal.

Really tender and super flaky sweet flesh, with a hint of sake. Surprisingly the miso was very mild, and the teriyaki sauce glaze was quite puzzling. The skin was super crispy though, as it was almost completely charred. Request for it being done without teriyaki sauce, maybe can taste the miso better

Well Grilled and very tender, the fat content makes this a superior cut imo. Imbued with a smokiness from the Charcoal, my advice is to eat the skin first to prevent it from getting soggy as it's crispy when it is just served

The Minced Meat was in a chinese chili oil style and not too bad, but the firm tofu could have been swopped out with soft tofu to pair better

Had to wait quite a while in the queue but it was so worth it! The menu has a variety of chicken and fish options like cod fish, teriyaki chicken and salmon. Alongside whichever meat you go for, it’s accompanied with a set of Japanese rice, miso soup, pickled vegetables and a chilled onsen egg in dashi. While these sets already sound value for money, you also get free flow salad from their salad bar!
 
Had no regrets going for this grilled saba. Really enjoyed the moist, tender and well seasoned meat, with the slightly crisped skin. There were close to no bones too, which made it even easier to enjoy. Will be back!

First bite wasnt impressive but wow the centre was really oily and flavourful. Well crisped up on the skin side and blackened mostly(slightly bitter). Pretty good but the oil pools at the bottom SO FLIP IT OVER Asap once u received the Fish so that the skin doesnt get soggy from the oil.

For the Small bites that comes along w this, im really glad they adjusted the umeboshi(pickled Plums) so that it's less intense and more herbal+sweet, which is more suited to our palate. The Grilled cheese was intense and that's right up my alley. Luckily it's a two biter so even those who dont like cheese wouldnt have to endure too much of it. The sweet sauce potatoes were rlly good right out of the wok, as the sesame seeds would have been super fragrant(courtesy of the nice rice-cooking lady) but it's nowhere near as good when cold
