“Nice Japanese French Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2012

I always found this place a nice hangout place for the quality of the food although it is quite pricey compare to other Japanese French cuisine. I loved the ambience and the decoroation in the restaurant.

We started with baked escargots, I dun really take shell seafood but the escargots are nice. It served quite special as seeing in the picture below, they are place on a plate of sand and when it served, you will still see flame of fire.

Seafood Paella not too bad, but I will prefer the Squid Ink Pasta. Not many restaurant serve Squid Ink Pasta and Ma Maison has one of the better one. Ma Maison is famous for its Hamburger Steak and is one of my favourite. It serve with a sunny side-up sitting on top. The steak is thick and juciy.

Their dessert is superb. First time try Mont Blanc and I love it. If you are coming to this restaurant, you should try it.

“Good place to have a hearty meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

I found this restaurant by chance, as there are not many Japanese style western food in Singapore. Sure there are plenty supposedly Japanese-western restaurants, but the fare served are confusion rather than fusion.

Just had another satisfying meal there two days ago. Not much variety but they are good with what they serve. The squid-ink spaghetti never disappoints and their tonkatsu are better than those served at a restaurant that specialises in it!

Expect to wait for a table, especially for dinner on weekends including Fridays. The staff are friendly and do their best to cater to our needs, though the crowd makes it a little difficult.

They accept reservations but have a portion of the place kept for walk-in customers. So if you must dine there, do try to make a reservation a week in advance. I tried a day before and was told that there's no more tables left for reservation. In the end, I waited closed to 45 min for a table.

“Not so Jap”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

It's suppose to be Japanese Western Cuisine. Service has been compromised somehow. Not exactly that Japanese. I couldn't even make out if they were welcoming me at the door as I stepped in, or were they just reciting part of their employment contract.
Food was ok nonetheless.

“Limited variety”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Food served is delicious but I find its variety somewhat limited. It will be good if they can beef up its menu.

“Best Japanese style western food in Singapore”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

As a great fan of Japanese style western food, I was quite delighted to find this restaurant. I tried the Hamburg Lunch set, and was so amazed with the overall quality. Waitress maintains good level of attentiveness, which is still a rare stuff in Singapore. The only down side is the price: this is even expensive than in Tokyo. But I am also surprised so many local people dine here from early lunch time. ideal for dates, quiet lunch admosphere seeker.
