Consistently good quality food. Attentive staff. Best to book before going down.
The quality of food is exceptionally good. I love the tatami area.
Table prepared before arrival, food is great as always, staff is helpful and attentive :)
Good, keep up and will bring friends the next time
A great neighbourhood Japanese restaurant which serves fresh, delicious dishes. Like many Japanese restaurants in Singapore it flies in its own fresh seafood from Japan. The menu is varied and there are the usual favourites but also so much more - everything I've had there has been really amazing. Check out the bentos, also the UFO Maki and the Ebi Gyozo which are superb, The sashimi melts in your mouth, and the agedashi tofu is perfectly cooked and full of flavour. You book via an iPad, and there's also a board on the wall stating airflown seafood dishes. I have been a few times and everything I've ordered has been delicious - worth a visit, but it's usually quite packed so make a reservation and they hold your table for only 10 minutes after the time you booked.
You can easily find the shop if you walk from the Awful Chocolate shop at the junction of road after crossing from I12 Katong. It’s along the shophouse; next to Katong Point. Had ordered cod fish ramen. If you like cod fish, you’ll love this dish. It serves generous chunks of cod fish & it’s certainly fresh. The soup is milky but not that oily as thought to be. If you’re driving, do come early as there’s limited parking lots in front of the shop.
I’ve been visiting Megumi since it was along East Coast Road. Meals there have always been satisfying!! We greatly enjoyed the sashimi, especially the butterfish!! The gyoza was good, too... thin-skinned and fresh ingredients. For us, the prawn tempura is a bit of a ‘miss’; a little bland compared to everything else we had. Regardless, thank you for another lovely meal. Will definitely be back!! :))
The new location at Joo Chiat has a very cosy look, the only thing that I didn't like was the next table is very close making it hard to walk in or out. upon walking in, after parking my vehicle, the staff greeted loudly, feeling appreciated to be there for patronising them! (free parking just outside the restaurant but you have to be early). Food is fantastic, portions of sashimi are huge slices, it is fresh! super fresh!
We went, a party of 3, on a Thursday night after 8pm. There was not many people dining there at that time. We had pretty good service from the service staff who explained the menu and the specials on freshly flown-in fish prepared in 3 to 4 styles. We decided not to have the specials though. The food was fairly good with warm sake to wash it down well. Overall we enjoyed the dinner there.
Food is always consistently good...fresh quality produce. Usually go for the same thing - UFO maki, agedashi tofu, bento etc. Always very enjoyable - nice ambiance - very busy so it's worth booking. Unfortunately they're moving out of the neighbourhood but luckily not too far away - to Joo Chiat road at the end of the month.
