Dashi, one of the most important ingredients in Japanese Cuisine and Marusaya knows it all well. Located in Singapore’s beautiful Robertson Quay, Dashi Master Marusaya serves authentic Japanese cuisine using all-natural Dashi in a stylish environment with both indoor and outdoor seating. Guests are treated to some of the city’s friendliest service and fine Japanese cuisine that’s hard to beat outside of Tokyo itself.
While Singapore is no stranger to authentic Japanese cuisine, there’s just something about Dashi Master Marusaya that puts it well above the rest. With a commitment to high-quality Japanese cuisine, amicable customer service and a peaceful atmosphere, the folks at Dashi Master Marusaya aim to give diners the most authentic Japanese culinary experience in Singapore’s Robertson Quay.
Fans of traditional Japanese cuisine cannot stop raving about the fresh and delicious offerings available on Dashi Master Marusaya’s large menu. Open every day of the week on Singapore’s Robertson Quay, this Japanese restaurant has excellent lunch specials during the daytime that are ideal for local workers who want to eat well on a budget. We recommend the wafu dashi pasta set lunch, which includes Japanese capellini topped with nori and served with onigiri, chawanmushi, potato salad and a dessert. Sushi lovers will find that the sashimi at Dashi Master Marusaya is as fresh as it comes. Hugely popular among Asian-food fans, reserving a table in advance at this Robertson Quay restaurant is highly advised.
Marusaya isn't only Japanese traditional style restaurant but is specialized in dashi soup which is the most important item for traditional Japanese cuisine like Chawan Mushi, dashi maki tamago, oden and shabshab. You must try dishes which includes dashi and had better remember that Sashimi or Sushi is different from those categories.
The restaurant serves authentic Japanese cuisine and its service staffs are very attentive and polite. Makes a very enjoyable dining experience. Definitely worth a second visit and more.
Very good food! Price vs taste of food matches. Downside is the location of restaurant since there is no MRT station nearby
Food is fresh, good quality and tasty. The house speciality Tamago egg rolls is yummy. Also enjoyed the grilled squid and dashi beef. The highlight would be the shabu shabu with its flavourful broth served with high grade beef & pork and ending with a porridge.
The food was really good, atmosphere was awesome. Knew of this restaurant through ordering UBER Eats in the area and the dashi stock was so good in the oden and chazuke that we had to come once! Food was so heartwarming. Highly recommend the agadeshi tofu, dashi ramen, salmon chasuke and the oden moriawase! Great to order in if you’re having a staycay in the area too because the food is really good for delivery standards! Wish it could deliver to Jurong 😭
There were only two other people at the restaurant for lunch and they were in a private room. However, unlike many other restaurants we were not rushed through with the staff giving us too much attention and the kitchen rushing through our order. The food was really good, I had the tempura udon set which included a number of side dishes. I would return and recommend it to others.
Food was authentic and good. Well worth the trip as I have been looking for a Japanese restaurant with good dashi. We had the lunch sets, which were great value for money for the quality and quantity of the food. I had the Tendon set @ $22++ which came with 3 prawns! The pickles were made traditionally but was a little too strong for 2 of us. We would return again in future for more dashi goodness.
Great restaurant, even better ambience and superb lunch set. We had the tempura lunch set and the fish udon lunch set. Both are superb, the tempura is light and crispy and the fish fresh. The udon did not disappoint as well. The staff were attentive and they were able to make solid recommendations. Will definitely visit again soon.
2nd time here and the food & experience were just as gd as my 1st visit. Absolutely loved their tamago (so flavourful, moist & fluffy) and Wafudashi Pasta (the soup was so rich with umami and the capellini itself was very flavourful on its own). Will be back to try their other items!!
The food was really hearty and tasty, and the restaurant lives up to its name of "dashi master". We went during lunch and it was quite a quiet and peaceful dining experience. I liked that the service was attentive but not intrusive. Overall a great experience!
