There is certainly no shortage of competition around Tanjong Pagar and the rest of central Singapore these days, but Kanda Wadatsumi holds its own in any conversation about fantastic restaurants dedicated to proper Japanese food. Their philosophy seems unwavering – a Japanese restaurant, serving Japanese food, in Japanese style. That sounds simple, but many other places compromise along the way. Not here on Tras Street, where Kanda Wadatsumi proudly import most of their ingredients direct from Japan, including the crockery and premium wagyu beef that can make those used to commodity cattle think this is an entirely different animal. Guided by a popular restaurant in Tokyo’s Kanda district for inspiration, Kanda Wadatsumi specialises in Omakase dishes, providing guests a chance to escape from the compromised pan-Japanese menus so common elsewhere. Try their set lunch and dinner menus to appreciate fully what Omakase Japanese cuisine – and executive chef Hara Shinji – is capable of.
It was nice and especially Shirako was fantastic. Also raw fish is very fresh and sushi was derisious too. I would like to recommend this restaurant.
Friendly staff, great service. Food quality was better than expected. If I were to nitpick: Food presentation. I wasn't "WOW" by when dishes were presented.
Have been visiting the place monthly. Chefs are very friendly and accommodating!! Food is definitely fresh. Service is attentive. Will definitely be back again next month. :)
Food is excellent and service is in good timing. It is always fun to enjoy seasonable dishes from the kichen. The combination of fish and meat is also good.
Tried their $120 Omakase menu. Good quality fish served. What stood out was the sea bream fish head... sweet and fresh meat dipped in tangy ponzu sauce. Seared tuna salad was very good too. The braised wagyu beef in miso sauce was disappointing as it was quite ordinary. Overall still a gd experience. Fresh sashimi.
Restaurant was quiet on a Saturday afternoon. Food was good as expected ; I thought the service could be a tad more attentive. Food was a little expensive but this was due to fish being imported from Japan. Overall a very good experience and we will be back.
cosy and unique Japanese boutique restaurant with limited seats, reservation is highly recommended. we had the omakase 6 course menu, portion is just nice for lady... service is good. the restaurant manager allow us to use the private room for lunch without minimum spending.
You come to a restaurant like this to taste the freshness of a fish. Here you get it. The quality and freshness of the food is guaranteed. The serving staffs (both the local and Japanese) explains the dishes when the food is served.
Food served was delicious and fresh. The service, though friendly, felt a bit rushed. Fish from the respective seasons are imported from Japan, I think. Staff was not able to tell me what the displayed " Pride Fish" cert at the counter with description in Japanese means.
I took the 6-course Omakase lunch while my wife took the Sushi Omakase set. While the portions were generous and the service was attentive, the food was only ok, not outstanding. Nothing really stood out. Unlikely that I will go back.
