For only $128++ per pax, expect an omakase with seasonal ingredients all thoughtfully infused with MAI’s signature dashi. And you know their dashi was made from 2-year aged katsuobushi, and it was really good.
The omakase I had included:
* Assorted Appetiser and Sashimi (Chrysanthemum Flower and Crown Daisy with Dashi Sauce; Home Made Sesame Tofu with Ikura; Slow Cooked Chicken with Sour Plum; Bonito, Tai fish, Sweet Shrimp with Shrimp Stock Jelly and Flounder with Konbu Kelp)
* Special “Dashi” Delights (with Shrimp, Shimeji and Maitake Mushroom Clear Soup)
* Seared Wagyu Beef with Dashi Sauce
* Grilled Matsutake Mushroom Rolled with Seared Wagyu Beef
* Seasonal Seafood Dish (Simmered Yellow Tail and White Radish Chrysanthemun Flower Sauce)
* Seabass, Eggplant and Rice Stem Tempura
* Meat Dish (Grilled Dashi Flavoured French Chicken “Hoba” Style)
* Donabe Clay Pot Rice (Mai Style Chicken Clay Pot Rice with supplement of $10) with Miso Soup
* Dessert (Homemade Sweet Potato Cake)

I love this Japanese claypot rice with deep flavours of dashi, soy sauce, Japanese sake and fish, lifted by floral notes of edible chrysanthemum petals. It's a pot filled with Japanese Barracuda, a seasonal mild-flavoured white fish from Yamaguchi.
This is one of MAI by Dashi Master Marusaya newly launched range of Japanese donabe rice, featuring the Mai's specialty dashi made from 2-year aged katsuobushi alongside premium the key ingredient depending on the claypot you picked - such as matsutake donabe ($48), chicken donabe ($48, like local chicken rice), and wagyu donabe ($58).
Each donabe rice was cooked to order over slow fire, and took approximately 30 minutes for flavours to sink in.  This creates rich, deep flavours in the rice dishes with crispy rice at the sides.

The two things I noticed immediately about @MAI_by_marusaya when I walked in were: firstly, how spacious the place is, and secondly, that the customers (I could hear their happy chatter despite them being mostly out of sight) were Japanese, thereby immediately vouching for the restaurant’s authenticity.
I was there (courtesy of @brandcellar) to have the $128++ Omakase Dinner Menu by Group Executive Chef Shinji and Head Chef Ono. And although everything they served was fine (I found the “Dobinmushi with Shrimp, Shimeji and Maitake Mushroom”, and the “Grilled Matsutake Mushroom Rolled with Seared Wagyu Beef” especially enjoyable), there‘s no doubt in my mind the highlight of the meal was their new range of Japanese Donabe (claypot) Rice featuring the brand’s specialty dashi made from 2-year aged katsuobushi and seasonal produce air-flown from Japan twice a week.
Cooked to order over a slow fire, each Donabe Rice took about 30 to 40 minutes to be ready but the wait was worth it. The aromas and flavours were distinctly richer and deeper than if an ordinary pot had been used.
Of the four I got to try, the “Seared Sliced Wagyu Donabe Rice” ($58++) was my favourite as it’s the most flavourful and indulgent with butter and an egg yolk mixed in (thanks to Chef Ono, I even got riceballs of this to take home at the end of the night). Tying for second place were the pretty and tasty “Japanese Barracuda with Chrysanthemums Donabe Rice”, and the “MAI Style Chicken Donabe Rice” which is an oishii (Japanese for “delicious”) take on our local chicken rice complete with its own packs-a-punch chilli sauce ($38++ each). Those who desire something very clean in taste can pick the “Matsutake Mushroom Donabe Rice”.
Do note that you do not get a whole pot of Donabe Rice with the $128++ omakase menu. It would be just a bowl of your chosen variant. I guess after consuming all the courses preceding and the dessert that comes after (I was presented with a slice of housemade sweet potato cake, matcha ice-cream and azuki red beans), it would be enough for most.

The restaurant famous for their house made all-natural dashi prepared using aged katsuobushi has opened a new sister arm at Bukit Pasoh near Outram MRT station.
For only $29++, you can have their dashi in a shabu shabu as part of a set lunch with Hokkaido pork, or black Angus beef. Ingredients are imported twice a week from Japanese prefectures such as Mie and Hyogo. Otherwise, you can go for their wagyu in a stock made from their dashi, as pictured. All set lunches include chawanmushi, tsukemono, wasabi kombu, ikura, katsuobushi, miso soup and dashi rice.
