Ootoya might be a relatively new face in Singapore, but this is really a very venerable Japanese restaurant, with origins stretching way back to 1958. Currently there are three Ootoya branches in Singapore (the others are at Orchard Central and the Clementi mall), and this outpost is perfectly positioned near Changi airport along Changi Business Park Central 1. The ethos here is grand in scope, with Ootoya hoping to ‘promote a healthy body and mind and contribute to the development and progress of the human race through the catering industry’. They have at least certainly achieved the first goal, with expertly prepared Japanese dishes full of the delicate flavours and fresh ingredients that you’d expect. Ootoya makes its own tofu and dashi soup stocks, shaves its own bonito flakes, and marinates all its meats on-site for a fantastic taste.
The restaurant wasn't crowded as usual. Tried the new dish - spicy chicken, it was lightly flavoured and refreshing. All the dishes I've tried here are healthy and delicious. Will certainly return!
Delicious food with child friendly amenties. Love the steak and chawamushi. Dessert is impressive as well. Highly recommended for family with young children as food is suitable for kids too
Very delicious and authentic Japanese food with nice ambience. Food is usually served promptly upon ordering. Kids menu is also wholesome with dessert and drinks. Highly recommended dining place in the East.
