Good quality!

The restaurant is a bit small and crowded especially during lunch time so we have to go there earlier to get the seats. Their sashimi are fresh and their grilled eel are the best that I tried so many Japanese Restaurants so far.

Good value. Would recommend their lunch bentos for a mid price range treat to self. Had the unagi lunch set for around $20 plus plus. Nicely done. Full of flavour. Lunch is always crowded though. So do not expect a nice quiet sit down at lunch. Have not tried their omakase dinners though.

Chanced upon this hidden gem in the old fashioned Goldhill plaza. Hardly an inviting restaurant behind a wooden frontage, it's worth seeking out for the set lunches. Very reasonably priced, starting from S$15-25, my Colleague and I were surprised by the freshness and quality of the bento box. Including piping hot and crisp tempura, about 6 pieces of sushi and...

We have been here twice before, but each time, Chef Matsuo amazes us with not just the traditional, but something more. We were tired and wanted a relaxing sushi, sashimi dinner. Chef Matsuo welcomed us, as always in his hospitable style. We left it to him and he kept giving orders to his staff and also he himself prepared the... More

The sushi is really fresh and Matsuo is true to the art. Having eaten at more upmarket restaurants around the region, this place has no airs and just focusses on good seafood. We were lucky he had some good Kinki which was grilled to perfection. Bravo chef !!

We got the 90º corner spot at the sushi bar so the four of us could chat, share and enjoy. Leave it to the Chef and he fixes it to your liking. Assorted (PLENTY) sashimi and sushi, and fried salty fish kept coming as we cleaned up everything. Like always fresh fruit was offered to calm us down.

At the sushi bar, Hiroyuki Matsuo the owner was very busy, but gave us his best attention with ease and made us feel at home. Service was exceptional and the best overall experience I have had outside Japan. Sashimi of the best fish anyone can serve - Toro Kampachi, Tai Hirame; and Kampachi Kama Shioyaki, preparations were outstanding. Fish flown... More

I had dinner with a friend there yesterday and we had an excellent time. The food was great and as the dishes where just coming without we having to order them, we had time to talk. A few glasses of Soju-Water made the atmosphere nice. I did not even recognize that the food was coming, because the service personnel was... More

I used to eat here a few times over the years but had not been for the past year. We were a group of 6, celebrating Secretary's Week for our 2 administrators. I arrived the earliest, at 1115 am. I peeked into the door to ask them what time they were opening. This waitress gruffly said, "1130..come back later!" That... More
