Better than expected! service was very good, friendly and happy staff. love the chirashi don, the quality of the sashimi is really good! will definitely recommend
Glad they got my quandoo reservation without any issues and that our table was ready for us when my party of 3 got there. It's my 2nd time to the restaurant and service was prompt like the 1st time. Our hot teas and food orders were served up very quickly and didn't really have to ask for tea refills. Only didn't really like the fact that one of the staff (female) was clearing away my plate and chopsticks even though I was still in the midst of finishing up the few edamame pods we had left. I was ok with her clearing the empty dishes that we had finished with and my friends' plates as they had finished eating. Our food orders were delicious as we had the sashimi, ika geso karaage, saba shioyaki and edamame again - items that we had and knew were good on my 1st visit there in Sep 2017. This time, we also had the deep fried soft shell crab (big pieces with a tangy dipping sauce), unagi salmon mentai maki (tasty but not a "must eat" item IMO), and we liked their swordfish sashimi so much that we ordered an additional serving after we finished the 1st serving of sashimi. Our tummies were full and happily satisfied after the meal. Definitely value for money for the quality of food here and will definitely be back anytime we need our Japanese food fix.
Brought 2 friends who were first time dining at Barashi Tei. They are all praise for the fresh and thick slices of sashimi and the delicious food. We also ordered the spicy salmon maki, unagi don, goose liver, assorted yakitori and grilled prawns. Will definitely go back for the food.
Visited in Jan 2018 - dinner for 3 persons. The items which we usually order were tasty as usual except for the ika geso karaage which came out a bit different from what we were used to. After asking the staff, we were informed that that dish was handmade in house that day (it was tasty but not as crispy) and what we usually had which was those from a packet was out of stock. Well, at least now we know to ask when ordering this item. We also had the cod fish hotpot which was full of ingredients (lots of veggies). A very filling and satisfying meal.
It's a breeze making a reservation through Quandoo and the restaurant always has the table ready for us when we get there. For the food items, our favourites are always good - Swordfish sashimi, ika geso karaage (the ultra crispy ones from a packet, saba shioyaki, and soft shell crab tempura. We also enjoyed the mentai salmon unagi roll which we tried for the first time. However, I found the stir fry items of buta shogayaki and mushroom yaki to be a tad salty. Service was friendly and our tea cups got refilled quite promptly. Definitely a good place for value-for-money Japanese food.
Barashi Tei serves premium Japanese sake at affordable price. Sashimi was good, I notice the restaurant does serves seasonal air flown fishes too. Assorted 5 Kind sashimi would be perfect serving for a sashimi lover.
Rather good service! Atmosphere was quite soothing and not noisy at all, not very crowded when I was there around 8pm on a Friday night. Had the bara chirashi don which was quite good, the sashimi was quite fresh and did not taste/smell fishy. Would have been even better if slightly more rice was given. Miso soup was provided as well as chuka kuraage chinmi to go with the rice. Overall a very nice experience and I would go back again.
