The beef set (~ $21) came with teppenyaki beef topped with fried garlic, potato with minced meat, cabbage, and upgraded to garlic rice for $2. Beef was tender (eat while hot!) and garlic rice was packed with flavour - a super hearty meal! Okonomiyaki (salmon) and ebi omelette was so-so only, would recommend to get more teppenyaki dishes instead. Portion of vegetable (esp cabbage) could be bigger too :(

⭐️ 3.5/5

Located in Food Republic, this was quite a hidden gem. Decided to try it as everywhere else was crowded/had to queue on a friday night. Ordered Teriyaki Pork Collar Don ($5.50) & Jumbo Loin Katsu Curry Rice ($8.90).

Pork collar had a ‘pork smell’ which was abit overpowering for me but some parts of the meat was charred really nicely which covers it up. Will try the iberico pork instead next time! But the pork collar is a pass for me.

On the other hand, the pork katsu was amazing! The meat was THICK and covered with a thin layer of crispy breadcrumbs. Curry was on a more watery side but taste-wise, it’s there. Would recommend getting this.

⭐️ Pork collar don: 2.5/5, Katsu curry rice: 4/5

Student set lunch menu came with drink and a side (~$10), value for money! Nice combination of cheese and sliced beef.

⭐️ 3.5/5

Love the concept of this Keisuke branch - chicken was tender and was so yum with the teriyaki glaze, fish was fresh too but had quite alot of bones! Rice came in a big portion. Had a free-flow salad bar as well but was expecting a greater variety - items ran out quite quickly too and staff didn’t quite replenish :( Dessert which was coffee jelly was meh... Do come early as the place it abit small and gets abit crowded during peak hours!

⭐️ 4/5, worth it for the price

Super love the whole combi - QQ ramen, spicy minced meat, LOTS of spring onion, runny egg 😍 Used a Burpple 1-for-1 deal on this and it’s super worth! Would come back for more.

Salmon was fresh and a suitable dish to order for those who are looking for something light. Not sure if it is worth $13.90 though... portion was small and I was still hungry after eating this 🥴

Always back for more fresh salmon sashimi 😍 The tempura is yummy and I like how the mains come in small portions to save your stomach space for the more ‘worth it’ items (like sashimi). Food and ambience feels quite authentic and the variety of food is good too! Be sure to book in advance.

Ordered the pork sukiyaki which came with good portion of tender meat and fresh vegetables. Salmon sashimi was fresh and ramen from Tampopo is a must try too! Rich broth and portion of noodles is just nice.

⭐️ 4/5

ordered a diy okonomiyaki ($14) potato cheese mentai ($10) and garlic fried rice ($5) - the star has to be the okonomiyaki which tasted pretty authentic (it’s cheaper if you choose to cook it yourself, so we did). fried rice was fragrant and yummy, potato mentai ($10) was so-so, nothing very special about it. the place is a little small so do call in advance to book to avoid waiting! we arrived around 8pm on a weekday and waited for ~15mins.

⭐️ 4/5, will be back if we’re around the area

super worth with burpple 1-for-1 set - came with a good portion of fresh seafood in our rice bowl which complimented nicely with the mentaiko tamago 🥰 very hearty and filling meal! The items in the set menu has changed since our visit so do check it out before visiting.

⭐️ 4/5 with the 1-for-1 deal, value for money


ordered the popular pork katsu curry rice ($7.50), smoked duck ramen ($7.50) and salmon mentai maki ($11) - the curry was good and went well the crispy katsu cutlet, but i was expecting the ramen to taste more authentic (it tasted more like food court-style ramen). the mentai roll tasted average too, nothing mind blowing.

⭐️ 3/5, would come back to try the sashimi which looked very plump

ordered sanuki beef udon + vegetable tempura & curry beef udon + potato croquette with burpple 1-for-1

both bowls came with a generous portion of meat and condiments. only complaint was the slightly cold tempura (though it was still crispy) and soup which would have been nicer if it was hotter. nonetheless, super value for money!

⭐️ 4.5/5, will be back again
