Located along Upper Thomson Road, there’s a small little road better known for the Indian roti prata restaurant beside a handful of private houses. Along this stretch of shops, you will find a humble looking Japanese restaurant which will definitely catch your attention if you ever passed by here. I won’t even know of this hidden gem until my friend brought me here.Before I enter the restaurant, there is a Japanese door curtain under their signboard which is shaped like the top of the house.

Before I enter the restaurant, there is a Japanese door curtain under their signboard which is shaped like the top of the house. It’s like I’m entering a little hut as I push open that glass door. The use of warm orange lighting gave me a cosy, relaxing and homely feeling to the restaurant. I love the pictures hanged on the wall as it made the whole place more colourful and vibrant.

For starters, we had the Edamane ($2.20) which both of us love. It’s lightly salted so to give it some taste. I love the juiciness of the green peas in it and it was very fresh. Popping edamane into my mouth has never been that enjoyable!

On the side note, the obasan boss served us and greeted us in Japanese. I thought it was really rare to have a true-blue Japanese serving with impeccable service and Japanese style of hospitality.

I always love to order Chawamushi ($3.80) when I visit Japanese restaurants and this won't be an exception. The aroma of the steamed egg with the fishcake and mushroom in it just goes so well together. This is surely one homely delight before a start of a main course.

The Teriyaki Don ($6.80) was beyond expectation for the price. There was a generous serving of teriyaki chicken cubes, tender and juicy chicken tooped with teriyaki sauce which was so appetizing to go with the slightly sticky and moist Japanese rice that made me crave for more!

This place may not be exactly like my dream Japanese dining place but it’s the closest to what I can get right now. They do have an extensive list of items on their menu but I will strongly suggest going for the more common Japanese dishes so nothing will go wrong that way. Judging from the price, food, service and ambiance, I’ll definitely be back here for more heart warming Tamako Meal.
