Service was attentive and prompt. Was given a private room when I booked even though I did not request for it. Food was very good, not the typical Japanese fare you get at most restaurants.

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!

Exceptional service. Authentic Japanese food. Truly worth a visit. Restaurant wasn't very full on a Sunday evening. The dashi stock steamboat is something that you can't find in most upscale Japanese restaurants in town. A hidden gem tucked by the quay indeed.

The beef tendon is a must try and sashimi is very fresh. We tried the shabu Shabu, while the broth is tasty and the vegetables are very fresh, the Pork has a pretty strong "porky" taste which we didn't like. Service is a bit slow even though it wasn't full house otherwise pleasant.

I really enjoyed the food here. Most memorable one is the house specialty - Wafudashi pasta. Every bite was a pleasure! Range of sakes is also wide and reasonably priced. Vani, who served us, provided impeccable service. I would definitely be back,

Service was generally attentive although we did have to cancel and order of cold soba as it took too long to arrive and we almost finished eating all the other dishes. Food is good and the dashi stock is the star.

Always love this place.. The clear sweet broth, naturally sweet. Feels healthy eating there. Loved the other food too. The dashi tamago was awesome, so was the rice cake, eggplant and mushrooms claypot.

Food was good as always. But service could be better. The manager gave us a condescending look when we asked for certain thing which she shouldn't. Otherwise, love the food. We had sukiyaki udon, tempura, the wafudashi pasta and the yaki nori to itawasa. Love everything

Great Dashi soup and chewy udon noodles that are made in house by the restaurant, nice and quiet atmosphere for dinner or lunch. The agu pork and beef were awesome!

Good food, and excellent service although our order was not keyed into the system and we waited for half an hour before asking the crew what happened to our order. Service remedy was applied immediately.

Great food. A different take on the usual Japanese fare. Pure, clean tastes, well executed, from the fishballs in the noodles to the mushroom tempura, it was all fab!

I was there the second time with my family. The food are indeed very good but the service not up to par. Even when we told them about the problem, nothing has been done. We have to tell them again then only we get what we want. Very disappointed that they don't know how to keep their customer.

Interesting Japanese place that serves up a more interesting range of dishes than the usual. We enjoyed the dashi broth for our noodles. Look out for chef's specials which usually have really good offerings.

Food standards were so so, service standards can be improved upon. My first experience there for food was much better. Do not order the dried cuttlefish, it was super dry and chewy.
