Back in the day however, we did our own bbq-ing over the grill and used to come out of the restaurant smelling of charcoal and grilled meat. But now coming back here slightly more than 10 years later to celebrate my birthday, I realised that the place had changed quite a bit from the old settings that I was used to. For starters, the dining area had dimmer lighting and there were now special chefs to mend the iron griddle. I did appreciate the change of having chefs now because it was certainly entertaining watching their skilled maneuvers as they prepared the food, poured the sauces and did their magic to ensure that we were being served delicious grilled dishes for our main course.

The prices of the teppanyaki buffet lunch which we had were:

ADULT: $39.90++
CHILD: $24.00++

I believe the prices for dinner would certainly be more expensive due to a longer duration of 4 hours as compared to the only 2 we had for lunch.

To whet our appetites and while waiting for our chef to get his tools ready, we were served with a few appetizers first.

APPETIZER: Salmon Sashimi

While I was not a fan of sashimi, my sister who gamely finished all three serves, enjoyed it and said that it was sweet, fresh and sliced to just the right thickness.

APPETIZER: Prawn and Shishamo Tempura

Great batter used for the tempura that went well with the dipping sauce. I especially enjoyed the prawns while the shishamo had a slight fishy aftertaste. Or perhaps I just was not too used to eating fish with roe still intact.

MAIN COURSE: Prawns and Salmon

Special mention to the garlic prawns that were so fresh and plump! It was a great serve of sweet grilled juicy prawns.

The quality of the food here has dropped substantially but surprisingly, it remains popular. Weekends will find this place packed to the brim.

Food's pricey for the quality. Also, service was a little slack, especially since this is considered a "first-tier" restaurant. We had trouble getting the wait staff's attention to re-fill our waters.

We had the Teppanyaki Beef and Seafood Set ($45.90), beginning with:

1) Norwegian Salmon - simmered in a proprietory mix of shoyu and teriyaki sauce. This was nice, fish was not overcooked, still soft and tender

2) Shisamo Tempura and Ebi Tempura - Too much batter, overcooked and the prawns were miserably puny

3) Salmon Sashimi - could be fresher

4) Garlic Fried Rice - nice and aromatic and garlicky

5) Sauteed Beansprouts - crunchy and simply seasoned

6) Sauteed Prawns - fresh enough but they were a little bland, not sweet enough

7) Sauteed Sesame Chicken - succulent and juicy, but a little tasteless.

8) Beef Tenderloin - not great

Salmon- Norwegian salmon simmered in Shima’s famous salmon sauce. 2 small pieces and quite expensive @S$25. However it's worth it! The chef even skinned the salmon skin and cooked it separately from the salmon to make it very crispy! Their signature salmon sauce is very good! Not too salty and not too sweet. Just nice! The way they cook it is by dipping the whole salmon into the salmon sauce and wrapped in an aluminium foil then slow cook on the hot teppanyaki plate until perfection.
