The place is often full at lunchtime even on weekdays, and most customers have some kind of discount voucher. The buffet menu is extensive and encompasses almost all Japanese cooking styles - sushi, izakaya, tempura, Shabu Shabu, tonkatsu, etc. Food quality is B-, worse than Sushi Tei but it’s not bad, especially the sashimi. Efficient and friendly service staff; these poor guys are overworked, especially since they have reduced headcount due to Covid. With the Entertainer 1-or-1 discount, the bill is only $54++ for two, so one should not complain. Shin Minori may be in the minor league in terms of food quality, but it won’t break your shin!

We have been going to this place since it first opened nearly 20 years ago. Prices have gone up quite a bit, and are now on the high side for the ambience and service. The food is still as reliable and diverse as ever. Recommended are all parts of chicken (balls, cartilage, heart, liver, gizzards, butt, skin, etc), puffer fish, taufu in century egg sauce, pork cheek, ginko nuts, garlic fried rice, Shunjuu salad. The sake list is long, but cold beer also goes well with the yummy grilled dishes.

The now defunct Tsuta at nearby Pacific Plaza introduced truffle ramen in soup to Singapore. The version here is not as refined, but still very good - fragrant broth, ok char siu, springy thin noodles. A greedy me made the mistake of ordering extra noodles which came in normal broth - extremely pedestrian, nothing to write home about. Slightly more expensive than the average ramen shop on Orchard Rd.

Review of the outlet at Takashimaya SC. The ramen is not the best but quite good - firm, excellent noodles but so-so broth. A waiter splashed someone’s broth on the floor without bothering to replenish the bowl. Prices are high for the quality. There are as good alternatives at better value at Isetan Scott basement, ION Orchard B4, or Paragon.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
