What’s your favourite sashimi? Mine is swordfish.

Unfortunately for me, there is no swordfish in there 😂 Still a decent bowl of chirashi though. Chikuwatei’s chirashi includes yellowtail, unagi, sweet prawn, tuna, scallop, salmon, ikura, tobiko & tamago.

Despite being around for awhile and one of the chirashi found in many listicles, it took me until now to finally give this a try.

I actually went to Manzoku first, which is also under The Yoi Group but they seem to be temporarily closed due to COVID-19 and the notice on the shop front redirected me to Chikuwai Tei. So don’t make the same mistake I do 😄

Chirashi Kou Set $35++


I typically don’t put out reviews on Burpple, but this restaurant topped the list of my most disappointing visits and I just had to share.

We initially wanted to try Manzoku, which is the sister outlet of Chikuwa Tei. Upon making a reservation online, I received a text from the restaurant about transferring my reservation to Chikuwa Tei, explaining that Manzoku was closed temporarily due to consolidation of staff at the main outlet. No issues with that, as my experience only went downhill when we were dining in the restaurant.

We reached the restaurant at 7.20pm on a Friday evening and placed orders for chawamushi, chirashi premium don and wagyu don. The first two dishes were served approximately 20 minutes later, but my partner’s wagyu don was nowhere in sight. This was the case, even after I had finished eating. Keep in mind that I took my time to finish my food, taking multiple pauses in between as I had wanted to wait for his food to be served.

During this long wait, we noticed that the kitchen was not serving food at all for a period of time. We also saw two groups of diners leaving the restaurant, likely exasperated with the long wait time. This was something we contemplated doing so as well. After an excruciating hour of waiting, our wagyu don was finally served.

The food was not too shabby. But considering we paid $100 for the entire meal, the price point was not worth it at all. If you look at the picture of the wagyu don, you would notice one piece of meat that is made up of 80% fats. There were at least 3 pieces of similar fatty meat. Not sure why anyone would serve that to the customers.

This is definitely not one restaurant that I will be returning to.

The makis here are pretty huge per piece and delicious too. Perfect aburi salmon w mentai mayo with generous chunks of crispy soft-shell crab. The rainbow maki paled in comparison, just order this!

This place might be famous for their chirashi but their unagi is equally good! Don’t give this a miss if you’re a fan of unagi.

Do not belittle this seemingly “small” bowl of chirashi don the slices were so THICK. Definitely satisfied my all my sashimi cravings.

Had the Chirashi Kou ($35) which contained a huge dollop of ikura and 2 slices each of salmon, amaebi (sweet prawn), scallops, swordfish, unagi, tamago AND my fave chutoro (medium fatty tuna)! Savoured every fresh slice. Chikuwa Tei also offers a pretty good selection of drinks - try the umeshu or the cocktail Yuzu 75!
