Always a joy to dine here. Come for the foie sushi and sake
Very friendly staff, very comfortable dining experience. Satisfying meal on a weekday night!
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
Staff are friendly and help to refill our tea as and when it's empty. The food is good, fresh and thick slices of sashimi. Value for money! Keep up the good work!
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.
Food quality is good. Portion is also big especially the beef udon soup that was ordered, udon is chewy and of good quality. The only thing is that I overordered the food Intitally and ask the waiter to hold my order till I finished the food on the table first. However, I feel it’s better if they can ask if we would like to proceed with the rest of the orders after the food was finsihed. Before I can even inform them to cancel the remaining 2 rice orders, it’s was automatically served. Therefore I have to stuff my food all the way into my stomach.
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.
- Price is a bit steep but quality more than makes up for it. - Manager and staff run a tight ship; good service. - Prices on the "set menu" insert we received seemed to have been deliberately wiped out with correction fluid; we had to specifically ask for the prices. Maybe you can try showing the prices at the very outset so you don't have to spend so much time answering questions.
