This Japanese place was housed within ToGather Kitchen and Bar, which is more of a coffeeshop/ upscale kopitiam than a restaurant. It was extremely crowded with a long queue on a Friday evening, so I would highly recommend making a reservation in advance. Ambience was a 2/10 because it was super noisy, and we could barely hear ourselves even though we tried to have a conversation at the top of our lungs. I would advise visiting with low expectations of it being a chill and hang out place. I did visit with 4 pax and was able to use 2 Beyond coupons for our meal.

They had a substantial menu and the price point of the dishes was about $12 per course, making it a really good deal after Beyond promo. We ordered the Salmon Aburi Mentaiko Don which was alright; something I would rate a 5 or 6 upon 10 as it is definitely a budget don where quality of rice/ mentaiko is concerned. Salmon slices were thin but substantial though. Two of us also ordered the Salmon Mentaiko Bento that came with a side of cold tofu and salad, but the salmon was so overcooked some of us didn't finish it, making it a solid 3/10.

It may also be noteworthy that the food was served with disposable cutlery and definitely added to the budget vibe, and we were even more stunned when the bento was the disposable plastic sort.

Will I visit again? Probably not, but I wouldn't mind doing a takeaway if I was close by!
