A tiny little Japanese restaurant that is located just in front of the lift at the 5th floor. There is only about 15 counter seats available. So everyone could have a good view of the chef making sushi in front of you while eating. Only cash payment is accepted here.

Lunch Donburi Set C : Kaisen Chirashi Set ($18)
It was served with Japanese green tea, miso soup, salad, pickles, and cut watermelon slices.
It was colorful in presentation. The sashimi was smooth on the texture. The salad was lightly dressed with soyu dressing. Nice ending the simple meal with juicy sweet watermelon.
Although the place was packed, it gave a cozy feel. Tea was refilled without asking for. Service was smooth.

Had their nigiri sushi with udon that comes in a set. The udon was served piping hot. Soup base was light-tasting and filled with seaweed. Udon was chewy and had just the right texture. The nigiri sushi was the highlight of this set. Sashimi was very fresh and sushi were made on the spot so there was a bit of waiting time. Tamago was sweet and soft.

It was so amazing, but somehow, the chirashi that i had tried (also had swordfish in it), didn't have any of that buttery goodness. Skip the queue at The Sushi Bar and head over to Wasabi Tei (not the one at the corner) if you have not tried this out yet!

Chirashi set $30- because the queue at the sushi bar was too long, I decided to try this out. The sashimi slices were thick, fresh and succulent - comparable with the sushi bar's version. This set came with green tea and a seaweed(?) side dish which had a homely taste to it. It was a very filling and satisfying meal. I also like that all the seats are counter seats so diners can see up close on how their sashimi is being prepared. Only downside is that the place is really small and squeeze,

It was the kind of rainy night that my friend and I were unable to decide what to eat. We were wondering around for a really long time at Far East Plaza till the point we were starving and my friend decided to just try this place. We got the Assorted Sushi Set which was beautifully plated and served.

We also got the Salmon Set. The salmon was so freshly grilled it's one of the best I've tried despite its average appearance. Good quality Japanese rice was also used.

Overall, this is an authentic Japanese place where customers sit in a rectangular layout facing the chef. It is a memorable experience, a hidden gem at Far East Plaza indeed.

Around 1245pm, it opened and we were ushered in to the counter seats. my chicken order arrived early. it was crispy and filling. and it came with rice and cabbage salad. there was also a seafood appetiser plus drink included. It was a good combination.

i was surprised that there was also a watermelon dessert included in the set meal. It was a good meal, but the service was bad.

In this quaint authentic looking Japanese restaurant (super small and only counter seats), I had a nice albeit sightly pricey lunch. I ordered a safe choice - the Chicken Oyako don. Basically it is chicken cooked with egg and onions over rice. They gave a couple slices of pickles and topped with slices of seaweed. The meal comes with miso soup and some veggies with a beancurd like skin. Very tasty meal, not too salty and overall feels quite healthy. Recommended!

So the last time I was here, I had the Chicken Don and Salmon Belly Sashimi. This time round, I stuck to my 'safe choice' of Salmon Don as it's pretty much the only thing I know how to appreciate when it comes to Jap cuisine. And yes, once again, I was not left disappointed.I ordered the Salmon Ikura Don - ikura refers to the roe, which is something I'm not crazy about it but ultimately didn't really mind it either.

Of course, at Wasabi Tei, the sashimi slices are incredibly thick so for this day, it wasn't any different. However, the one thing I did notice was the quality of the rice. It's not as sticky and sweet as Jap rice ought to be. But oh well, that's just a minor issue. Will definitely be back for more thick sashimi slices!

Had a nice lunch at Wasabi Tei with my friend. I ordered the Chirashi which is a mixture of raw seafood over rice. The dish is very nice as the seafood is fresh and there is a good variety of seafood - salmon, tuna, scallop, prawns, salmon belly, roe and I can't tell what is the white color fish. Be patient when you eat here because they take time to prepare your meal but it is worth the wait.

So I heard about this hidden gem somewhere in Far East Plaza. I was really puzzled when my friend told me it's hidden in the 5th floor and I thought to myself - isn't that floor full of hair salon and massage parlor? Why would there be a authentic Japanese restaurant opening among the smell of hair spray? Of cos I was wrong. It will not be easy to simply just walk past Wasabi Tei - their bright green signboard is difficult to not be notice. I walked in to find myself going in to a cramped 16-sea

I was really puzzled when my friend told me it's hidden in the 5th floor and I thought to myself - isn't that floor full of hair salon and massage parlor? Why would there be a authentic Japanese restaurant opening among the smell of hair spray? Of cos I was wrong. It will not be easy to simply just walk past Wasabi Tei - their bright green signboard is difficult to not be notice. I walked in to find myself going in to a cramped 16-seater Japanese kinda of "bar". With only the counter seats available, it is not recommended to go in huge group. The menu offered is straight to the point - just two pages of it stating what is serve there. I had the Teriyaki Chicken set, which comes with a appetizer dish, rice, teriyaki chicken, miso soup and fruits. Do note that there will be a mandatory $2 fees apply for drinks, which basically means it is compulsory for you to drink something in there. I was quite pleased when my dish is served. Portion of the chicken is big, but the rice is a bit too little. The miso soup taste authentic and I love the teriyaki chicken the most. Juicy and flavorful meat. Definitely will be going back again.

Wasabi Tei is this quaint tiny Japanese restaurant at Far East Plaza. The place is small and only has counter seats yet it is usually full house during lunch and dinner. It feels like a real authentic Japanese eatery. I ordered the sushi cone (I don't remember the name) which has Salmon, California (Avacado) and tuna. The fish was so fresh! Thick slices (not stingy at all) and you can taste the quality. Good eats!

I'm not a big fan of Japanese food, but my colleagues were keen on having Jap for lunch this particular weekday so we headed to this quiet dining joint at Far East Plaza. When I stepped in I was pleasantly surprised by the interior. It looks like one of those eateries you can find along the streets of Japan (vague memories from the time I visited the country when I was only 5) - definitely different compared to modern places like Sushi Tei.The concept's like a sushi bar so you sit on high chairs

The concept's like a sushi bar so you sit on high chairs around the counter. It was a little uncomfortable and the place is extremely small so... that's one thing I didn't like. Also, the service wasn't say very attentive. And they were right in front of us the whole time - you'd think they'd pay a little more attention huh?

Anyway, for my main dish I had the chicken (Don? Donburi? No idea! - $10) rice thingy with egg. It was a little too bland for my liking, but it was very filling. Had to use lots of shoyu sauce to make it taste better.

I ordered a plate of salmon bellly sashimi ($7+) to share with a colleague. As I mentioned, I'm not a big fan of Jap food, but I do admit I'm completely head over heels in love with salmon sashimi and salmon-anything. However, this was my first time trying salmon belly and although it's super duper fresh here (no fishy taste AT ALL!), I didn't like the fact that it was soooo fatty. It was very "gelad" and I could only take 2-3 slices before feeling a little nauseous. I think I'll stick to normal salmon sashimi from now on - but I'm sure there are many of you who love salmon belly so do try it here!

I am serious when i say that. How many people in Singapore will bother to make a chawanmushi properly? Most dont. Most chawanmushi is steamed egg and nothing in it. And some are dry. This chawanmushi is not cheap, but its all worth it. There is soup in it, strips of konnyaku jelly, crabstick, enoki and golden mushrooms, chicken and boiled shrimp. All these in a small little cup.

Definitely recommended if you are looking for some good Japanese food at afford pricing. But seats are limited so you might have to queue awhile before getting a seat.

This is a forgotten place tucked away in a corner of Far East Plaza, that serves really decent Japanese fare.

The cafe is really small yet cosy, with a food preparation station in the middle. There are less than 20 counter seats around the middle station, and that's pretty much about it. You don't get to choose your seats, because the staff will assign them to you according to the number of pax and availability. So if you're assigned seats at the far end of the station, you basically have to stick yourself against the wall and squeeze past everybody else to get to your seat.

Diners of this little cafe don't seem to mind these conditions, because there isn't much discomfort; only cosiness. The food is really fresh and awesome too. You can tell how much their regular diners love this place when you see the long queue outside the cafe. Everybody waits for their turn patiently. But thank goodness the turnover rate is rather fast too, because most diners just eat and go; this is not the place for chilling or chatting.

Seaweed appetizer

This is the most unique appetizer I've ever eaten in my life. It's served slightly warm, in a little sauce, and the seaweed texture is chewy. It tastes really good and savory, a good kickstart to the meal.

Salmon sashimi

You can tell instantly that this is very fresh! The chef takes out the salmon and cuts slices of thick and chunky sashimi infront of you only after you place your order. You can see that the slices are "upright", not thin and slimy like how most restaurants serve the dish. This never fails to make me salivate before I eat!

The shop is tiny, there are limited seats available in the shop and there is always a queue trailing from the entrance, clogging up the corridor of Far East plaza, but all these factors pale in contrast when one tastes the quality of food served in the shop.

I had been to Japan and tried the sashimi there before, and after that trip I had always lamented about the quality disparity between that of the local Japanese cuisine and those found in Japan itself. Hence, before I visited the restaurant, I was quite skeptical about how good the food would get.

I had a codfish set while my boyfriend ordered a sashimi assortment set. We were given this little dish as appetizers before the main course was served. I couldn't really make out what exactly is in the appetizer, but it was really tasty when served hot.

The codfish set I had was really good. The skin was a little charred, but after peeling off the skin, the codfish flesh just melted in my mouth. The salmon sashimi in my boyfriend's set was tasty as well.

One tiny aspect that I think they can improve on is the thickness of the maguro (tuna) sashimi. When we visited that day, the sashimi was near 2cm thick. Since maguro sashimi is a little tougher than other kinds of sashimi, I'd usually prefer the thickness to be around half of that, somewhere comparable to the thickness of the tongue. In this way, the maguro won't be too tough to chew on.

Service at this restaurant is minimal. When we were sipping on our drinks and chatting, we were advised to settle our bills and leave as soon as possible as there was a queue waiting outside. Nevertheless, the quality of the food still left us wanting for more.
