We are staying in Papillon Garden Villas, directly opposite Seki Tei, which was the only reason we ventured to try the place. What a wonderful surprise to find: some of the best tempura we've ever eaten (and we live in Singapore), lovely seaweed salad, fresh and delicious sushi (the prawn and avo roll was a winner, as was the unagi sushi). Then followed excellent grilled skewers - chicken and pork - silky-perfect chawanmushi and delectable miso soup. Service was great; granted, our table was the only one occupied at 8pm on a Wednesday night. We were full to the brim and delighted with the chef by the end. Including a few beers, a round of good sake and a reasonably drinkable bottle of local white, we were set back about SGD30 per head for what was a delicious feast. Get there quick while it's still a hidden treasure!
