We arrived at the Nirwana Resort Hotel after a day travelling from Australia. The concierge suggested the Rin Japanese restaurant. I'm glad he did! We had a lovely meal. The restaurant was not busy with only two other tables occupied. The air con was much appreciated!

We ordered Grilled salmon with some sauce which was really yummy, garlic fried rice which was good, chicken meatball soup and red miso soup. Food was good, service attentive. There was some kind...

For most of our dining experience, we were the only ones in the restaurant. The food was very nice though.

Had a lovely dinner at this Restaurant and was very good - Teppanyaki or traditional Japanese was available - had the Teppanyaki and thoroughly enjoyed it, service very good, food excellent and we would highly recommend. Alcohol prices a bit too high - need to be addressed

This restaurant is a Japanese fusion restaurant that serves bento set, sushi, sashimi and other Japanese foods. location is beautiful as it's near the ocean. it can be crowded at night which causes food to come late / longer than usual. The prices seems to double on peak seasons. price wise, they're targeting Singaporean visitor so it can be quite... More

Went to Rin for lunch on CNY, and both my toddlers fell asleep. The staff was so considerate to reassemble a makeshift bed for my 2 daughter to sleep in so that we could enjoy our meal. The details to the food was fantastic - not only did they ask about food allergies, but the presentation of the dish was... More

So it's a solitary stone building that was very quiet but the view out of the restaurant was beautiful - a pity doors all closed. We had there are two bento boxes and one kids bento box that provide good value. A pity the only description is fish, prawns or chicken - in the end it was not bad with... More

Rin is a beautiful restaurant set by the beach. However the moment we stepped in we know it's best days may be behind. The air conditioning was only turned on but we could hardly feel it, and was mostly sitting with a fan blasting in our faces. Food selection was sushi, tempura, teppanyaki, grilled food. And surprisingly not a single... More
