They serve different menu for their lunch and dinner service. During lunch, they serve authentic hearty Japanese set lunches at an affordable price (mostly under $20) while for dinner, they adopt an izakaya style.

As we went during lunch time, we got to try set lunches.

1) Ochazuke set ($7.80) - 7.5/10
-Rice porridge (with added salmon/picked plum/mentaiko), 3 kinds of oden (fishcake, tofu and daikon radish) and pickles
-The clear dashi broth that soaked the pearly short-grain Japanese rice was light, umami and savoury but not overly salty. Mixing in the wasabi brought an extra spicy kick. The fishcake remains me of my exchange days in Korea as the texture is very similar to korean odeng/eomuk - firm yet having a nice soft slight chewy bite. My favourite item in the oden would definitely be the tofu! I love how the interior is slightly firm and silky while the exterior has this chewy tau kwa skin texture. I really love this dish as it tasted really light, refreshing and hearty. It would definitely be my go-to-meal after a long and tiring day as it certainly rejuvenates the body and mind. Though the portion looks light and small, it is actually pretty filling.

2) Unagi bento ($12.80) - 7/10
- Pearly japanese rice topped with unagi, oden, chicken karaage, mini-salad and pickles.
- The portion of the unagi was decent given its price. Not doubt the unagi quality isn’t as good as unagi specialty stores like Man-man unagi/Unagiya ichiinoji, it certainly tasted better than those frozen unagi). Though most of the ingredients in this bowl tasted pretty average, we would recommend this too given the overall combination and price affordability.

Would be back to try other set lunches like the shabu-shabu beef/pork don set ($9.80).
I really love their set lunches that tasted really thoughtful, heart and comforting akin to home-cooked style food.

Taste: 3.5/5
Worth it: 4.5/5 (It is possibly one of the most value-for-money Japanese cuisine places in town; wallet-friendly and with quality)
Overall: 8/10
