Had this during heightened alert. For takeaway, hard to tell the difference between the Australian wagyu ($98) and the aged Nagasaki version ($145). Even with 1-for-1 Entertainer offer, it’s overvalued. If you can’t wait until they reopen, go for the cheaper Aussie version. The minuscule tomato salad is good, but is a joke!

Went to sanpoutei as I haven’t been for over a year. The food was ok, but among the least satisfying of the ramen joints in the orchard road area. There are many better ones, at Ion, Paragon, Tanglin shopping centre. Avoid the Onigirazu; it falls apart easily.

The main dining room is discrete and elegant. The quality of the ingredients or the preparation is between popular Sushi Tei and the top sushi counters like Ki-sho, Ashino, Shunjuu. Service by Filipina waitresses is extremely friendly but quite bad - they forget to bring towels, napkins, have no clue about the dryness of sake, etc. I would not go back here, preferring better-value Sushi Tei, and for the special occasions I would splurge and go to a superior sushi restaurant. Jiro Singapore is to Jiro Ono in Tokyo what Crystal Jade Kitchen is to...Hua Ting maybe?

The food is decent but not as good as at authentic Japanese eateries. If you have one of the 1-for-1 offers pricing becomes reasonable, otherwise it would be quite poor value. No wonder you can always find a seat here.

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.

Farting is healthy (the wet type, less so)
