“worth a return visit”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

I will certainly be back for more of grade-A sushi (major score on freshness and yummy rice),the excellent service and great sake recommendation. 3 pcs oysters done 3 ways was a little more than S$50 so you can imagine the rest on the menu. A must try is omi beef truffle donburi. In the end, price is relative so for me what is satisfying is Aoki's credible menu, sense of proportion and simple presentation (where one actually see the dish one ordered undisguised). The place has great ambience for intimate chats and good design for a small space. Closed on Sundays.

“Fantastic fresh Japanese cuisine”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. Great food & service staff. One of very best we had tried. Creative yet traditional fare. Stuffed to brim. Will certainly return. Spent SGD 300 per person. Celebratory birthday dinner.

Waku Gin is overpriced and not half as good.

Must make reservation. Tiny (cosy) place.

“Very expensive very fresh”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

Food is beautifully presented, taste is good, but the greatest of all is the freshness of the sushi and sashimi. It is not the run of the mill standard and the freshness comes at a pricey bill and to me, it is not quite so worth it. Service is great.

“Disgraceful”
Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

What a disgrace! Having booked the restaurant weeks in advance with a confirmation on the day. We arrived to rude staff who deemed our well in advance reservation at the sushi counter was now not available. Most likely the saw the booking was for a non regular, woman and therefore decided to not honour the booking. That mistakes can happen, is understandable, but to not make an effort and to lie about the reservation, unacceptable. I certainly would not recommend a restaurant to anyone with such behaviour, after all Singapore has many top class restaurants who would appreciate ones hard earned money. Spend your money, time and special occasion somewhere else!

“Delicious Saga Beef Bowl”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

This is a great find on Orchard Road. The kaiseki menu has a range of delicate flavours and fresh ingredients. Must have item though is the saga beef bowl with white truffles. Unforgettable.
