I went with sis & b-i-l to azmaya for dinner this evening on 10.11.2014. :-)
i bought S$6pax pork shabu shabu voucher from qoo10. for 3pax it's S$18, and we had to pay GST + service to the merchant i.e. azmaya.
i had dinner at azmaya a few times before, and food & service were very good. i also read the customers’ review on qoo10 & they were mostly good.
the single serving of shabu shabu pork had about 10 to 12 slices. i estimated about 100g maybe?
there was the usual vege to accompany the meat shabu shabu.
there was a choice of konbu (昆布) seaweed soup or chicken soup. i picked chicken soup.
the quality of pork here was really good, don’t know if it’s kurobuta but it was very flavourful. :-)
the leek, mushrooms, japanese flat rice noodles (like tanhoon) etc were all good, & there was also udon (we picked udon but there was also a choice of rice).
the service was very good, very polite, and they would serve you when you asked, even though using a cheap voucher.
i think the pricing does not make any sense, but of course i am not complaining. there are fixed costs & there are perishables, so perhaps it’s better to pack it with customers.
i am just pleasantly surprised that the restaurant maintained their service attitude so well, and so professional – you actually get what was advertised & sold to you w/o any fuss, and it was really great value.
can’t eat this all the time, but if there is promotion again later will surely come again.

Azmaya is opened by a group of Japanese and they have many outlets in Japan. So glad that they came to Singapore!Loved their super fresh and thinly sliced wagyu beef here. The Goma or Sesame Sauce complements the Wagyu beef very well. It's definitely a must try! Others worth a try are their sashimi platter which is equally fresh and also their grilled squid.Full review here: http://ilovedawn00.blogspot.sg/2014/09/food-review-azmaya-shabu-shabu.html

As mentioned in the title, Azmaya provides good food but the service was horrible. Firstly, there was no air condition in the restaurant. Secondly, the place was hot and humid. Thirdly, wrong dishes were sent to us at least thrice. To make things worse, we waited for almost an hour for the broth to be served to us with all the vegetables and meat thawing on our table. That being said, the only saving grace is that the servings are generous and the wagyu beef was good.

Most of the customers were eating Hotpot when we entered, but we wanted to try the hot plate, and I'm glad we did! Ordering the set is quite worth it as it comes with vegetables that you can cook along with your meat. The restaurant is sort of small and cozy but it looked like they could cater for groups of 8 or so. Most of the staff were Japanese and you could see that they were trying to speak English as much as they can--very friendly and trying to work across the language barrier. It was a

The restaurant is sort of small and cozy but it looked like they could cater for groups of 8 or so. Most of the staff were Japanese and you could see that they were trying to speak English as much as they can--very friendly and trying to work across the language barrier. It was a tad difficult to catch the staff though as they are very busy getting orders and delivering food, so please be patient


There were quite a few sauces available on the table and they paired well with the meats. THe meat were fresh and not frozen and you can actually see them slice the meats with the meat slicer which is in the corner of the restaurant. There were also plenty of vegetables which included mushrooms, cabbage, golden mushrooms, and potato.

Hot plate that the food was cooked in was a creative device as it was shaped like a shell and the excess oil would drip out of the plate.

The total bill came out to be $100+. Not pictured here is the Tebasaki Fried Chicken Wings for $10 a plate-- the wings were marinated similar to the Nagoya-style. They were marinated well and arrived hot and juicy.

See my full reviews & photos at my blog=http://chefquak.wordpress.com/2013/05/02/a5-wagyu-shabu-shabu-azmaya-on-30apr2013/

went to try out Azmaya (东屋), a new Japanese shabu shabu place at Robertson Quay on 30apr2013.
there was a huge crowd and many Japanese, which meant 1 or all of the followings-
(1) it should be good
(2) Singaporeans (& I guess Japanese living here) love a new eatery
(3) its a izakaya (居酒屋) drinking joint (so many Japanese) and there is still not enough casual (aka lower price) places serving Japanese wagyu.

Azmaya opened in late mar 2013, so was still offering 50% opening discount for 2 ala carte buffets – pork at S$24 and A5 wagyu beef at $90 (website said till end may 2013). I guess at 50% off the pork shabu shabu ala carte buffet was a steal, but we came of course to try the A5 wagyu beef. In any case the 50% discount did not apply on public holiday (PH) or eves.

The A5 wagyu shabu shabu sets started with S$40. I think there was a S$50 and another S$70 sets probably for better cuts. We saw they had course sets at S$49 and S$59 (but it was in Japanese only on the website) so we thought we gave it a try and ordered 2xS$59 w/o knowing the content.

That proved to be a mistake! 1 plate of A5 wagyu came (in above photo) to be shared by both of us. So we asked the server was there another plate of wagyu on the way or we were expected to share the plate. He said that was all the wagyu in the course set & it was because we had other items like pork & adegashi tofu etc. Obviously we were not thrilled as we came specifically to try the A5 wagyu & in choosing a S$59 course set we ended up having 1/2 the wagyu c/w the S$40 set & the compensation was to have some pork & adegashi tofu (& probably something else). So we requested to change the order to the S$40 set.

Initially the server came back saying the order could not be changed or we would have to pay 50% penalty for cancelling the order (I guess you could try that but it would not work with Singapore diners la!). He went back to try again after we told him that there was no english course menu & we asked if it had the same A5 wagyu & quality as in the S$40 set & we had no clue what was included in the course set but was prepared to pay additional S$19 above the S$40 set for whatever additional items they provided. most importantly we came for the A5 wagyu & could not be paying more & getting less A5 wagyu. back the server went (all these took quite long because they were really busy but we were relaxed and not really in a hurry but would certainly refuse to take the S$59 course set). we were allowed to change to the S$40 set so problem solved & no harm done.

One word about the service & attitude. I thought the service attitude was superb really! especially because of the difficulty in communicating, the server was actually very professional, attentive, well-mannered, serious in giving his best. that said, I am not sure if the service could be graded excellent if important information were not communicated whether due to language or otherwise.

now the A5 wagyu beef. It was good beef, tasty with the fragrant taste of marbling (“pang”). It was certainly better than the ala carte buffet beef served at En Japanese Dining & their sister restaurant Zen which were australian MBS4 wagyu, and at Himawari. and the S$40 set price was not cheap but I guess quite ok.

but for our expectation of Japanese A5 wagyu, I thought it was quite far off. The kagoshima wagyu konabe at Mikuni would be far superior to this (& that was S$24 with Feed@Raffles discounts for 2pax). We also had very good wagyu sukiyaki set at Chinya at Asakusa in Tokyo for 3500yen & again far better than this, & they were all not the top grade A5 (I think the 3500yen beef at Chinya was just 国产牛 and not even kuroge wagyu 黑毛和牛 so no A grading to talk about).

Still, comparisons aside, it was good beef and a very nice dinner. For S$40+ (they charged 10% service not registered for GST as yet), its ok though I won’t do it often.

I was thinking of going back while may2013 promotion was still on for the S$90 (S$45 after 50% discount) A5 wagyu beef & pork shabu shabu ala carte buffet. just to go back to the point on service, I guess if nothing needed to be communicated eg a strait forward order of the S$90 ala carte buffet, then service was indeed excellent!

the set also included the usual udon & vegetables.
