Ootoya - Clementi Mall
About Ootoya - Clementi Mall
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 Changi City Point and Orchard Central), and this outpost is perfectly positioned at Clementi Mall, right above the station along Commonwealth Avenue. 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.
Very delicious with generous portion. Worth the price. Fish is very fresh and Food arrived promptly for all people too. Will definitely come another time.
It was our first visit and we were pleasantly surprised by the ambience and food. Attentive staff who were quick to top up our green tea, cleared plates and serve were also a plus point. We will return soon!
Food is fresh and delicious. Place looks authentic and it is not noisy like some other chain eateries where you can't even converse without raising your voice. Staff needs more training in serving though. Overall experience is good and will visit again.
the staff there is quite friendly. nice food have been here for few times. But this time the aircon very cold. Maybe due to the seating.
Making a reservation and appearing early at 11.30am sure beats the crowds! The staff are efficient and pleasant. And the food, really good. I ordered a small bowl Chirashi and it was filling. The fish was ample and fresh. The others at my table ordered a double of small Oyakadon and Udon, the soup was clear and tasty while the noodle was cooked just right, not mushy but al dente. The dessert was Fantastic, bits of cake, mocha, green tea ice cream, red beans. Worth dropping by.
The service overall is great. The food is very nice, delicious, i'd recommend to my friends to visit more. The manager is very polite and very helpful as well
Very attentive staff. But to prompt into clearing the plates? Being asked twice, Everyone we 'going' to finish the dish. Ha ha ha.. the dishes taste great!
Food is cooked hot and good for consumption. Enjoyed it. The chawanmushi is fresh. The beef is not tough. The presentation is good and pleasant.
Food is good. Long q during the peak dinner hours but we able to get our seats out of the Q. Will come back again.
Grilled hamachi collar very fishy. Wait staff a bit unattentive, but ambience and layout was nice. Food was served quickly and serving sizes were generous. Cod fish recommended.
