From the Burpple community

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!

🔸i love how the servings are small and bite size, perfect for people who like to just try a lot of things.

🔸 the service can be quite slow, so just be patient.

🔸 I will rate it 7/10

I have patronised Shin Minori for close to 5 years now, and I must say that while the expanded menu is exciting, the reduction in portion size was very disappointing! The quality also dropped a bit as the ratio of seafood to rice in their maki rolls (arguably the best thing on the menu) increased. Thus, our dining experience didn't feel as "shiok" as before, and subsequent visits would be few and far between.

Went to the UE Square outlet on a Monday afternoon for the lunch buffet (1-1 w BB); Had been looking forward to it a lot due to good reviews but it really didn’t match our expectations at all 😭

Food was mostly cold and served quite slowly.. Our anticipated Sashimi platter order didn’t get keyed in so we had to re-order it at the end when we were too full to enjoy it fully already. It was q hard to flag for the staff’s attention as well due to the location we were sat. Ordered ice lemon tea only to receive lime juice, and then randomly got cake midway which was prob a misplaced order (it looked like tamago and messed w our minds). Towards the end we just asked to cancel the rest of the orders that hadn’t arrived and settled for dessert - Mochi which was just bad...Skin was super thick :(

Overall there were just many small factors that made for a very disappointing experience. Nevertheless still impressed by the variety of >150 choices and the sashimi was not bad! Might give this place another chance as we believe that we may have just been unlucky with our first experience :’)

Firstly, need to make reservation or you cant get a sit. The place open at 12 noon and there will be long Queque to enter. There will be 1 menu per table. You will be given double sided A3 paper with list of items to place your order. Waitress are all very busy running around so you need to be patient. I wasnt so patient and submit another order and later on realized that i ordered double which is way too much! Food wastage is chargeable, so be mindful.
