they have uob 15% discount & dbs 1 for 1 main course for dinner & lunch (limited to only 1 free main course for each table).
we were there at blair road about 7pm, but i could not find any parking, & ended up parking at the hdb carpark next to everton park. my daughter & her friend came later but managed to park along the blair road itself near chotto matte.
restuarant was tiny. most of the recent reviews on hungrygowhere were poor, but mostly about the service. we had a chat with the male server & his attitude was actually quite good & helpful enough, but i think limited training & knowledge about the menu & the discount practice. ok la i guess.
wife liked the sake after trying 1 carafe from a new bottle they opened. we told them we would take the whole bottle if we liked it, so we did.
we ordered the grilled wagyu, grilled kurobuta, onsen egg wagyu don, mentaiko pasta, chirashi don & a salmon maki.
we were expecting to try out some decent food first, and then order more.
but was disappointed enough to tapao 2 packets of char kuay teow from adam road food centre afterwards. no kidding…lol… sigh!
the grilled wagyu. can’t exactly say it was bad, but it’s mediocre and thus not value for money - it was priced at $38.
c/w my own tagliata, I think anyday my steak is infinitely better!
of course that’s just my opinion. haha!
the grilled kurobuta. I think it was a disaster, it was dry and hard. I reckon any normal pork would be a lot better than this in taste and texture, much less this kurobuta.
The iberico pork was another disappointment, especially as compared to the same dish at other restaurants.
The onsen egg wagyu don. ok lah, I guess it was more of the same as the grilled wagyu main. So same ok standard, just ex.
The sushi rice though was quite poor here.
Mentaiko pasta. my wife & daughter quite ok with this, though it was a tiny portion for S$18. For me, i think my own mentaiko pasta was a lot better.
& the chirashi don? this is not a S$45 chirashi don. this is a S$25 chirashi don
I must say though that the sashimi were all fresh, sweet & good. The sushi rice was not! there was 1 piece of chutoro, 2 good hotate, maguro, kampachi, kajiki etc.
The salmon maki was pretty ok. Anyhow, after the few signature dishes that failed badly, we did not want to add any order.
The bill came to S$290 (including a S$95 bottle sake). Without the sake, it would be close to S$180nett for 5pax. We did not order that much food & the standard was really poor for the price.
Never come back again for me!
