Felt that the soba wasn’t impressive enough for a specialty soba shop. It was alright but still lacked the very qq texture I had expected (I had one really good one once but I can’t rmb where 😭). The broth is nice tho! It’s even nicer when you add the bonito broth (that they provide in a flask at every table). Tempura was crunchy, liked the pumpkin best, the rest were alright but I found the shrimp one a bit floury. The chicken soba soup had a more savoury-sweet taste, but was too heavy. The leek in it was really nice! The rest of the ingredients were pretty standard. Not sure if I’ll return specially for this, as my go-to Japanese restaurant (sakuraya at west coast plaza) serves yummier soba at a cheaper price point.

Pretty worth with the BB 1-1 set - SUPER FILLING! They are really generous with their eggs + rice + ebi + chicken :-) I especially liked the well-cooked fluffy eggs on the rice blended with the chicken 😋 prawn was average, nothing to pick on. Came with a serving of chicken skin, satisfactory!

Serving wasn’t huge but I wasn’t hungry so it’s cool (even glad that they have this when I couldn’t down a rice bowl!) but anyways the mantou was SUPER crispy couldn’t even feel the bun part much! While the Mentaiko salmon was good and fresh too I was confused by the combination w the mantou HAHA would prob taste better separately?

The salmon cubes were limp and didn’t have a bite to it, and the scallops were too thin. There was a nice smoky flavour, and the egg roe provided some crunch, but other than that, the bowl was really meh. They didn’t even use Japanese rice :( The special salmon had too much mayo, so take note if you’re intending to get that! My dining partner also remarked that the portions were too small for him, but I found it just nice.

This place is my family’s go-to casual Japanese restaurant! We enjoy the cha soba, which has a good bite. The tempura batter is light and crunchy - not oily nor cloying. Food here is generally good and comforting :)

The seafood chunks (tuna, salmon, squid, prawn, tako) were fresh, and the sweet sauce drizzled in the rice was delicious as well. The spicy dashi one was indeed spicy, with a heat that builds up as you eat. We added on the premium set (+$8), which had pretty decent tasting components. But I prob wouldn’t do an add-on next time :p

Omoté serves satisfying chirashi dons, and is a place that we’ll always come back to whenever a craving hits :)

Topped up $0.50 to change brown rice to spinach!! Overall not a huge portion (even for the salmon unlike the other reviews) and didn’t feel that there was much Mentaiko as well (?) but I still enjoyed my healthy meal !!! The onsen egg paired well with the vegetables and the salmon was well-cooked!

The premium chirashi came with tuna belly, salmon belly, amberjack, snapper, salmon roe & botan shrimp. The jin chirashi came with salmon, tuna, scallop, sweet prawn, sea urchin, white tuna & salmon roe.

These were pretty good chirashi dons! The tamago was really nice, and the rice was well-flavoured as they added ume which I really enjoyed. Standout components: tuna belly, snapper, & salmon roe. The rest were also rather fresh, but we would have preferred if the white tuna served to us didn’t contain bits of bloody parts.

We got this at 40% discount with eatigo! It’s quite a steal with the discount, and the portions are also very generous.

The ramen noodles here are pretty good - it’s slightly thinner than usual, with a nice bite to it. The broth is rich but not jelat, and the chashu was tender + not too fatty, which I like.

The ginger pork rice was simple but nice too, with well-seasoned pork belly slices, plump Japanese short-grain rice and garlic bits + spring onion.

This place also has free-flow beansprouts which my friend loves, so a plus point for that!

Thoroughly enjoyed this bowl of Aburi Salmon Don - love the truffle flavoured rice and seaweed!!!! (However only 6 pieces of salmon instead of 8 as stated in the menu :-( ) good price and good portion size for me :-)

My family’s go-to Japanese restaurant! First time trying the bara chirashi don, it was really fresh and it’s pretty worth it for its price! Minor point but I actually find the rice really delicious too - sticky but not mushy :)

A colleague of mine introduced this place to me. The meats were juicy and tender - the chicken balls were especially good. The egg mayo was a good complement, and the greens provide some freshness. This lunch set also came with a salad, miso soup and ice cream. For $15, you get great food and at such good value too. Would definitely recommend!
