They specialize in their yuzu broth and ramen here and I opted for the tsukemen that comes with a yuzu infused dipping sauce. The dipping sauce was pretty addictive, perfumed with toasted sesame and had a slight spice from I’m guessing a chili oil? The yuzu added a brightness to it but thought it could have been more present in the dish. The noodles were slightly overcooked in my opinion too. The accompanying players of the noodle were not too bad either but nothing to shout about.

I was deliberating on whether to order the set that comes with an extra side dish and I’m so glad I did. The grilled salmon belly was a huge portion and was fatty and delicious for just $4 more!! The side dishes of chawanmushi and miso soup were quite tasty as well. As for the donburi, the fish was really fresh and the ikura gave the entire dish pops of brininess which I enjoyed. The only gripe for me was the portion size which was abit stingy in my opinion and the rice was too vinegary for my liking.

Tried quite a few varieties and they were all decent and quite fresh!! My fav was the aburi salmon belly that came glistening in the rendered fat and had a good fish to rice ratio. Other notable mentions would be the trio salmon, negitoro, yellowtail and unagi. What impressed me the most was the ordering system which has a general sushi conveyor + a personalized conveyor for you when you order through the tablet. Prices start from $2.20 a plate which is super affordable given the quality but come early as there’s perpetually a queue to enter.

Used the burpple beyond set here which comes with a salad, 2 pieces of mentaiko tamagoyaki and a miso soup. The salad was nothing special, the miso soup was pretty good too and was cooked with salmon bones which added depth to the soup. The star was definitely the tamagoyaki, soft and sweet complimenting the savory, rich mentaiko sauce. The kaisendon was average (the portion size for the set the small size) and the fish was relatively fresh but not super generous, wouldn’t have eaten it if not for the 1 for 1 deal.

Ordered the original tendon which comes with seafood, chicken and vegetables and you can choose between white rice or multigrain and original or spicy sauce. Would recommend the original sauce as there’s chili powder on the side in case you fancy some spice. The japanese short multigrain rice is cooked well and really tasty as some of the sauce is drizzled on the rice as well. Surprisingly the tempura that impressed me the most was the chicken, seasoned on the inside and still juicy, which is hard to find in chicken breast. The only tempura that I wasn’t a fan of was the baby corn but overall most of it was done well without it overly greasy.

The ramen bowls here are customizable in terms of the soup flavor, ingredients and noodle texture. I chose strong flavor (which is slightly saltier as “warned” by the staff) and hard noodle texture. The place also serves free flow hard boiled eggs and bean sprouts. The soup is the creamy tonkotsu kind as you would expect and there’s even bits of the rendered pork fat floating around the soup which made it really rich but it could be hotter temperature wise. The egg was well cooked with the seasoning penetrating all the way through while the yolk was still jammy. However, the chashu was abit it a letdown as it was quite a lean cut and very dry unless I doused it in the soup

There’s a promo ongoing now and this whole fish was just $12 and this was grilled really well. The skin was slightly charred and crispy and the meat underneath was well seasoned and tender. Squeeze over some lemon to balance out the savoriness of the fish.

$18 and oh so worthhhh. The sashimi on the smaller plate on top was quite fresh and generous. However the main bowl below was more of chopped up salmon, saba, tuna and some octopus. The fish for that bowl wasn’t the best quality but cant complain given the price. The rice could be cooked better though it was abit too clumpy and dry.

Came with bamboo, spring onion, egg and a piece of char siew. The soup was thick but not as flavorful as I expected it to be so adding the garlic chips helped to enhance the soup. The noodles were on the firmer side which I prefer so that was nice. The most disappointing component was the char siew, it had nice caramelization but not tender enough and abit on the tougher side. Had better experiences here before so maybe today was an off day.

The tamago sushi was well seasoned and had the slab of egg was very generous. I love it when they get the rice to topping ratio right and not try to overload you with rice. Recommend the mackerel sushi as well, the vinegared fish complements the rice nicely.

Part of the 39.80++ buffet which is real worth it.

Buffet is 39.80++ for lunch and dinner and it’s really quite worth it. The sashimi is quite fresh but I wasn’t a fan of the cuttlefish as it didn’t have enough chewiness to it. Salmon and yellowtail sashimi was the best in my opinion.

$16 for the set that comes with a side dish and a drink made it quite worth but that’s about all that’s good about this set meal. The broth didn’t have the depth of flavor that a good ramen should have and just tasted salty without the rich porky flavor. The meat was tender but once again too salty. The noodles were the only acceptable ingredient and they still had a little bit of a bite to them but strangely had a tinge of ginger flavor.
