Priced at $78.80++, this wasn't cheap but I would recommend. The sashimi was of good quality (not the best, but still worth paying for). Service was fantastic, the ambience was great too, had walls that partitioned tables for privacy. The dessert after the main course, which was mochi and ice cream, was mind-blowing. I would visit this place again for important events!

We were able to choose our soup base, and I chose the (spicy) kara-miso ramen which wasn't that spicy. The pork cheek was really good and melt-in-your-mouth. The noodles were springy and the broth was full of flavour (a little bit too salty in my opinion) but still, this is one of the better ramen places in SG

Beef slices with (a lot of) egg, onions, seaweed and edamame. I thought the edamame was slightly out of place here. The meat was tasty though. And the portion (of both rice and meat) is huge so it's quite worth the money!

Dry ramen is an interesting concept, and no it is not as dry as it seems - there is a layer of sauce underneath. Apparently diners are supposed to mix it for 20 seconds before eating. It did not disappoint indeed. The noodles were springy and the sauce added flavour, well-coated with the onsen egg. The minced meat was tasty and slightly spicy to add the kick. Not to mention that there is a load of spring onions but i'm not complaining. Very worth it with the 1-for-1 deal

Really very worth a visit.
The portions are quite large for the price point and stuffed with a lot of "liao". With a generous amount of spicy sweet sauce (can customise the spiciness level) and also the batter is crispy and not too starchy. Their chirashi don is also very nice and fresh and I would definitely be back to try the rest.

This is an ala-carte buffet that I would highly recommend as there's a huge huge variety of dishes. With sashimi, sushi, tempura, skewers, and so on. Discounts appear pretty often too and this place is even listed on Burpple Beyond. The quality of food is really good too, would DEFINITELY come back again.

At first glance, the restaurant doesn't capture much attention, being tucked away in a little corner of CityLink but I found the ramen to be pretty good. Using Burpple's 1-for-1, this is really a steal. The portions are pretty big and everything was quite well done - meat was flavourful, noodles quite springy, broth was good and really helped to boost appetite. Verdict: i would come back again

With a rosti base, topped with some mango salad thing and a nicely packed ball of smoked salmon, sous vide egg and fish roe. I liked this dish, wasn't too filling yet satisfying. It's a simple concept but I would say it's a good combination of flavours and textures, from the juicy fish roe with the savoury rosti and topped with the flowing egg yolk. N

Would highly recommend this. The rice was so tasty I finished it quickly and yes it's good enough to be eaten on its own? Mentaiko sauce was pretty generous and the flavour was strong. Salmon was half-cooked which I really liked. Good for all those petite eaters cos the serving is small, but trust me it will leave you feeling very satisfied and even wanting more. Only thing is that the place is small and there aren't many seats so you probably need to just eat and zao

Finally managed to join in the hype! Queued about 1hr 15mins for this, but the food came really quickly so all's good! Ordered the Hitsumabushi (grilled unagi, or freshwater eel, over rice). Apparently we're supposed to eat this 4 ways: 1st portion as normal, 2nd portion mixed with the condiments and seasonings provided, 3rd portion with the dashi (they even give you wasabi to grate yourself!), 4th portion any way you like.

I know some people don't fancy unagi because it can taste quite fishy if not cooked well. Don't worry, this isn't the case here! The eel is de-boned pretty well and grilled to a tender, melt-in-your-mouth texture. Which already brings it to a level of sophistication higher than your typical unagi dons! Really can't imagine eating even fresher versions in Nagoya itself.

Anyway, I was very impressed with the rice too, REALLY very soft and fragrant. All in all, I would say, do give this place a try. It's good.

$19.90++. I'm guessing that this place will have mixed reviews because the beef is served medium and cold. But I like it, it's as if I'm eating sashimi LOL. The side dishes and egg were quite meh. But the meat was tender, sliced thinly so each bite was shiok and not too overwhelming. There's a lot of meat (and rice too, so good luck finishing it HAHAHA). It's really worth the money!

A-la-carte buffet dinner tonight :) Their sashimi is definitely the star of the show. There’s salmon, tuna, swordfish, kingfish, octopus, scallops that’s extremely fresh, and served right from a refrigerated area so it’s not too warm or too cold! The cuts were sliced evenly and of the right thickness such that it is bite-sized. And it melts in your mouth 😍 Service is great too, the staff constantly walk by to take orders and clear plates. Ambience is awesome. Would highly highly recommend this to people who don’t mind a small quaint setting, and for people who don’t mind quality over quantity!
