Not only are the dishes beautifully plated and taste much better than many Japanese restaurant chains out there, the prices for such a meal in Orchard Road is almost unbeatable, and we are talking about less than $20 for most of the dishes. Food tastes great, checked. Wallet-friendly prices, checked.

Almost every table in the restaurant ordered the Tonkatsu Set which comes with a sizeable portion of breaded, deep fried Kurobuta black pig cutlet with the usual accompaniments of cabbage, miso soup and barley rice; for the quality at that price, you will enjoy this dish thoroughly. Additionally, we got the Teriyaki Chicken Donburi, which to me, was the highlight of the meal, as the grilled chicken had the smoky aroma with the sweet teriyaki glaze, served over Japanese rice. To end off the meal, we were torn between the Kuzukiri or Sanshoku Warabi Mochi, and we got the latter that comes with 3 flavours of goma, kinako and matcha, served with kuromitsu syrup on the side. One bite of it and you will experience the jelly-like, almost melt in the mouth texture with the balance of flavours from the coating and syrup.
