Raising the bar for Japanese cuisine in Singapore, at Barashi Tei the fish is specially flown in fresh from Japan’s prestigious Tsukui market, meaning sushi and sashimi lovers are in for a real treat when they visit its Middle Road location. Not only is Barashi Tei and paradise for fish and seafood lovers, also on the extensive menu you’ll find an array of other Japanese favourites. Pair your meal with a bottle of premium sake, imported from Japan. With its wooden panelling and minimalist decor, Barashi Tei combines tradition and modernity, the perfect setting for a romantic dinner date or a special meal out with friends in the Bugis area. You’ll find it located inside the Elias building – to guarantee a table, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
pleasant service. food wait time was fairly reasonable as well
Oct 2017. 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.
