This is the second ‘high class’ restaurant I went to, and this time it was to try out the omakase menu. Unlike the experience at Tatsuya before, this restaurant had options for omakase in their menu which gave me an indication of the amount I was going to spend, and for how many dishes. The exact details are not mentioned and are in fact not necessary as most customers just want an idea of the price range. For someone who was trying out omakase for the first time, this was very helpful.
My friend and I decided to try the meal that was around S$150. The following was most of what we got. The food was very fresh and even though each serving is rather small, one does fill up significantly in the end.
I would definitely come back here for lunch again. There were two time slots of an hour and twenty minutes each which I felt was a little insufficient. Firstly, we had trouble finding the place and that took a few minutes off the time. Then as we got fuller, we ate slower. In the end, we had to rush in order to finish the food on time as the next batch of guests had already arrived.
