Was invited to dinner there, and was blown away by the quality and delicacy of the sushi and sashimi at Tatsuya. Had the omakase, and was surprised by every dish, which we both polished off. I think the price of the meal was equally as outstanding as the meal itself, but I suppose you do pay for what you get, and this has certainly been one of the best Japanese meal I have had in Singapore. I would go back again any time.

The lunch bento sets are value for $$$ and they use the freshest ingredients! The chawamushi is as silky as tofu and done with perfection! Simply love the service and food! Certainy a recommended place to go for value for money lunch sets! Tried the sashimi-very fresh and prepared with a twist! Reservations are a must and lunch bentos are served from Mon to Fri.

Food: I've been to this restaurant 30+ times and it is my regular Japanese restaurant for sushi/sashimi. Most (but not all) of the produce is airflown from Japan (which accounts for some of the price). For omakase, you won't get away for less than $250/person. For a la carte, you can get away for about $150/person. It is certainly less expensive than Shinji. The highlights are: Uni (you can have the sea urchin served a couple different ways, but its pretty awesome served in the shell with yuzu on the side or as sushi topped with quail egg); Anago (the sea eel here is spectacular); some of the torched sushi is great (try the salmon belly or swordfish); the grilled cod and grilled yellowtail cheek is excellent.

Drinks: The house sake is decent and reasonably priced.

Ambiance: Sit at the sushi counter. I agree with some other reviewers that the counter is a little more crowded than it ought to be. I like sitting with Chef Andy. Avoid sitting at the outdoor tables.

Service: Sharp. One tip would be to order directly from the sushi chefs rather than the waitresses.

Simple Japanese Atmosphare, Super Food, not cheap but worth it. Nothing to complain.If you book for the Counter ask for a seat more inside otherwise you might end up next to the door which is not so nice,

I've been a regular of this place on and off for 4 years ... and bring people here when I want to impress them ... purely because the food, especially the sushi and sashimi, is out of this world!!!

Make sure you get a seat at the sushi counter as half the experience is watching this extremely talented, diligent and perfectionist chefs working their knives like magic wands to create the most beautiful looking food I have seen.

Everything is based on 3 simple principles: The most premium ingredients, served at their most fresh, in a minimalist yet beautiful way. Chef Sasaki San is my favourite so be seated near him if you can.

Just a heads up, it is expensive (go after pat day!), especially is you go "omokaze" but I think its well worth it, the meal lingers for days after.
