Had lunch at that Suntec establishment today.

The tepinyaki beef has got to be the best beef I've had in Singapore.
The whole buffet is the ducks nuts. I'll be back there for sure.
The coffee is pretty rank though

Another place I would like 2 add to good Japanese restaurant is Akashi located in the basement of Paragon (where Spageddie's, ThaiXpress, Soup Rest is bundled around at) It's a higher ticket price per person than Ichiban Boshi or Sushi Tei but i think it's worth it.. can feel the authentic styles in each dish.. nice for a special lunch or dinner, worth a try

I can tell ya'll one thing though, i had a terrible experience earlier today @ Ten-jyaku Japanese restaurant located @ millenia walk (right next 2 sushi tei) The ambiance was cool, service was bad.. the waitresses couldn't even answer any inquiries i had abt some food in the menu, havin to call the manager a few times jus to clarify some things.
The prices are jus outrageous for an average quality sashimi(let's say.. $8 per slice(thin too)= 5 slices =$40) and I didn't find anymore special than sushi tei.I've had superb quality sashimi @ holland village b4(located by sushi tei) and this was incomparable.
:???:
I would understand if the fish was jus freshly caught fresh from the sea an hour before.. too conceptualised of an establishment, so not impressed.
This is the result of an establishment spendin way too much $$ on decor and not on the quality of the food & staff training.


haha.. sorry i just had to rant, Thank goodness for forums.
But yea..back to my main point Try Akashi :D

I had a really good meal at a place in Chimes. It was more like Korean BBQ meets Japanese food. They do a special type of beef there as well - which was divine. It is in the corner of Chines near the front entrance near the car park.

I'd give it 4 stars :D

GyuKaku, the food equivalent of Banna Republic in Japan (I'd say MacDonalds, but it is better food and very resonable) where there are branches in many major cities.

Not bad, the ones in Japan are actually better, and the menu is wider. BG is right, they call it a "Japanese" resturant, but it is really a Japanese chain of Korean BBQ (yaki-niku) - there's a new one in UE Square

yeah Emi, this is a real dissapointment here, with so many Japanese foreigners and so few authentic resturants, fewer with Japanese management - like "Memoirs of a Geisha" with non-Japanese actors, pointless, given the beautiful culture around Japanese food

you might be talking about a sushi place on the corner of Devonshire and Killeny, connected to BarStop (they share food menus) - ridiculously expensive, but at least it's not the 2nd/3rd rate kaiten zushi of Sushei Tei and the like (where I have lunch once a week, btw)

have not been to the place Big Guns mentioned at Suntec, but the Tonkichi there is ok; there is another, Ichiban boshii-something (best hat?!)at Suntech which is again so-so

I often go to En on Mhmd Sultan though it is Okinawan and I don't eat pork - nice staff and you have a choice of indoors and outdors. Nirai Kani is another Okinawan in Tanglin Shopping Center. Both have nice, mostly-Japanese staff and are Japanese-managed.

Zen at UE Square is quite good too. Many Japanese go there. It's run by the same company as En that EADG mentioned. The baked herbal chicken wrapped with bamboo leaves .. yummy! I was actually at Zen and En last night ... bliss.

I'd be interested to hear of any izakayas here in Singapore, that's one of the things I miss most about Japan

The best izakaya outside Japan I know is not in Singapore but, of all, places, in Jakarta -- namely Ajihara, Jln. Melawai IX, Blok M (yup, right next to all the dodgy karaoke-massage-spa parlours and shifty-eyed guys selling Viagra). Customers are all salarymen and karaoke girls, the menu is incredible (horse meat or whale, anybody? they've got 'em!), the food is excellent, and if you order two they give you a third for free. Dinner and beers won't come to much more than Rp.100k per head (S$20), which is barely enough for a tokkuri of sake in most of Singapore!

Singapore's izakaya all seem to be a little too hip, fancy and overpriced for my tastes. Shunjuu at Robertson Quay is probably my current pick of the bunch, but it too falls squarely in the above category. Mangetsu (Centrepoint) has very good oden but insane prices, Nirai-kanai is also OK but it leans a bit too much in the family restaurant direction for a night out. Some of the places in Cuppage Plaza are a bit more shabby/home-y, but I haven't been too impressed by the food so far. :-|

Do you mean Tampopo? The one with Kyushu kurobuta tonkotsu ramen?

Liang Court's basement is a true little Japan though, the curry at Kobe Romantei is excellent.
