expensive but good food

I was at this restaurant with family. We ordered a lot of food. generally everything was very tasty. Although expensive, but I think worth trying. Ebi Tempura was good. Also Salmon Sashimi was excellent.

We fell across this place because we had a craving for Edamame. Outdoor and Indoor eating options. Very comprehensive menu, good sized portions and you won't leave there hungry. There is something for everyone. Service was good and staff friendly

We went to this restaurant for the 2nd time. The combination of the ambiance, service, and food make for a nice dinner. This past visit it was my husband's birthday, so I called in advance and asked if they could put something together. They were very nice to offer a complimentary Sushi Cake with a birthday candle. It was a... More

I had four small dishes including two pork salads and a fresh raw tuna and avocado salad. Three dishes would have been sufficient but it was all nice fresh quality food. Of course it was a bit pricey being at Clark Quay by the Singapore river but I recommend it for a nice light dinner especially accompanied by a few... More

We went along due to the location, and not as a result of TripAdvisor prior reviews. Nonetheless, we sat in the special euro-Japanese seating, ordered round after round of food. We liked the staff, and their use of iPads to expedite ordering was pretty cool. The food was fresh and reasonable and the price was consistent with Clarke Quay. We... More

Fantastic Japanese restaurant! Very professional and attentive staff! I was a bit worried to sit as a Japanese table but accommodated to people not use to it! A bit of a hassle though not having a toilet inside!!!!

What could you do, if you like the style of Japanese dining but you don't feel comfortable sitting in that style? That restaurant has a solution :) And yes, the food was nice and the staff helpful.

On the plus side, this restaurant has a great location for dinner on a warm evening, with a great outdoor seating area by the river. But that's where the positives end. The service was a nightmare - from placing an order (at least 15 minutes) to the hour long wait for grilled chicken and skewers which, when they arrived, tasted... More

After much thought of what to have for dinner we decided to settle for Japanese. What actually attracted me about the restaurant was the interior decor. The service was good and the food was average, like any other Japanese food but presented well and a little more pricey. I wish they could have closed the main door as the heat... More

Great location at Clarke Quay, but choose the outside riverside tables. Food was as ordered with fast and efficient delivery. The waitresses were surly - permanent frowns were etched on their faces. Though they were supposed to be open till 1 AM, they started to raise the level of the inside music before 11 PM. As they ratcheted up the... More
