Great quality food. Great ambience for special occasions :) the Hokkaido milk dessert is a definite must try on the menu. Price was well worth the food we got.
Enjoyed the ambience of the restaurant and the quality of the food. Had an enjoyable dinner. While prices are generally reasonable, I find prices of additional orders a bit expensive. The complimentary desert though is a very warm gesture
👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 great food and great service.. nothing short of amazing. The truffle risotto is a must try.
Set menu price reasonable and the food is delicious. Beef set is Super and loves the chicken soup. Service is good and friendly. Will recommend to friends.
Been to the restaurant on at least 6 occasions. Food is as usual great, soup base for shabu shabu is fantastic. The seafood set i had is very fresh and filling. My other dining companions loved the pork and beef sets too! The only bugbear i had with this restaurant is they are very unwilling to offer extra pot for my friend who was having beef. As we do not eat beef, we prefer to have a separate pot for the shabu shabu. This happened on our previous visits too when i brought my other friends for dinner. It was embarrassing to have to be arguing about the extra pot in front of my friends. I hope they could be more flexible in future as i still intend to go back for the shabu shabu.
We were here for lunch and we were the only guest, which is great as we were a big group. Great meats and the broth (both beef consommé and dashi) were great. The beef for sukiyaki is better than the one in the beef shabu set, but it's also more expensive. The set menu is more than enough as it comes with noodles or rice to end. We also added the truffle risotto to end the meal and it was delicious as they cooked it up using the leftover dashi broth .
We visited the restaurant previously. Enjoyed the peacefulness in this estate. Kudos to the attentive staff who attended to us. We thoroughly enjoyed the thin slices of well marbled Joshua Wagyu. Previously, we were able to get a 10% discount from our krisflyer card. But, on our recent visit, we were told that there was no promotion at all, thus we need to pay the full price for a family of eight.
Our family had the sukiyaki for dinner, and although it was not completely authentic to the ones we had in Japan, it was good! The sauce got really thick and concentrated at the end, and we had to ask the waiting staff to top it up with water many times as they only added a small glass of it each time. Would recommend this to anyone who is willing to splurge on some good quality sukiyaki!
Very high quality meats and lovely beef consommé broth. Staff are very polite but would do better with more explanation and proposals on what to order and popular recommendations, as well as how to prepare the food for first-time patrons.
Had the Shabu beef set and the Wagyu beef was awesome with great marbling. Sauces was good, especially the lime and ponzu. Ishiyaki at the beginning as the 'appetizer' was a nice new experience for me. Will definitely be back!
