Hidden Treasure Cove of Japanese food

Managed to find this place on reviews and after last night's visit, I wasn't disappointed. Right in the lobby of the hotel, the entrance looks small and non-striking but right inside past the main doors the ambiance is totally different. Feels really like in japan! The food is amazing,.

Good and fresh authentic Japanese cuisine to die for. A place for the Japanese food fanatic, what's more... It's a order to make buffet Japanese restaurant.

First, please understand that this place is a low key, relaxed, small (for about 25 guest) specialized Japanese restaurant. Me and my daughter were the only foreigners there yesterday and the place was packed solid. There are two seatings, one for lunch 11-14 and dinner 18-21. You have to call for booking. Do not expect champagne fountains and Evian water... More

When you walk in this restaurant, it reminded me a lot of the pleasant Izakayas of Tokyo. The decoration, the conversations, the mood and decoration. The all you can eat buffet is just AMAZING. Fish is very very fresh, and the hot dishes are also so tasty. They come in small portions, which is makes it easier to try a... More

It's been some years, since I last dined at Ikoi. At one time it was a regular and favourite haunt. But boredom set in and tastes changed. So, last night's visit was greatly anticipated. Would the food quality and preparation still be good or a disappointment? Would the staff be friendly? Have the prices gone up? What about the ambience?... More

I go to Ikoi whenever I need my sashimi fix. They serve generous cuts of fresh sashimi and the a la carte buffet leaves one spoiled for choice. Excellent tempura too. Despite the occassionally service (this place is ALWAYS full), you will always leave this restaurant deeply satisfied.

Within the Mirimar hotel, we stumbled on this right next to the lifts. We were the only Europeans eating there, which perhaps indicated its popularity with the locals. The meal was a fixed price and the Malay couple we shared a table with recommended the dishes to try. Excellent value

Went here a couple of times for their sashimi and whatnot. Though the time to get our fiod was a little slow, i think it was worth the wait. The salmon and other seafood dishes were fresh and tasty The seafood soup was heavenly. End the meal with yuzuru sorbet. Worth it :)

Love coming here with friends. Food is awesome and the ambiance is great. However, expect the food and service to be a bit slow when the restaurant is packed with people.

Luv this restaurant for its plentiful big cut sashimi that is fresh. With a big following even though the price is around S$50 you have to make a reservation and worst still on the tatami mat you have to reserve one month in advance! My favourite is at the chef's counter where there is rapport with conversation and service. It... More
