Initially they told us that Burpple is applicable on all items in the menu, then they turned around and came to say it's not valid on the Donburi section, because they were having their own lunch promo on the Donburi.

Wouldn't come if not for the Burpple deal on the Donburi for lunch, and then with the limitations I don't find that it's worth it after all.

Coffee is decent but on the pricey side, with my iced mocha costing $8. Also had a pain au chocolat at $4.50.

Service is otherwise friendly and they didn't rush us at all even though the space is small with limited seats (7 tables)

Wanted to use the Burpple Beyond deal, but it was much more limited in terms of the selection, so we ended up using a deal from The Entertainer. 2 sets of Steak and Eggs for around 40 bucks.

Asked for medium rare, was nearly well-done the first time, sent it back and they re-did it but it was still at least medium well and I didn't bother anymore the second time.

Also the server Nora was kind of grumpy and snappy?

Wanted to try the waffle pop but it wasn't available. Had Thai Milk Tea and Deep Dark Chocolate for our choice of flavours, a nice treat sweet after dinner!

Went during Restaurant Week for dinner at one of Singapore's oldest Japanese restaurants. Unfortunately didn't live up to its name...

I would have considered the original restaurant week menu price of SGD68++ per pax overpriced given the quality of the food. For the restaurant week menu, items from the cold bar were served - and I was undeniably disappointed by the quality of the sashimi and sushi that were served. The sushi rice was dry and felt like stale rice that had been left in the fridge over night. And look at the maki (pic) where they didn't even wrap it properly - all 3 pieces for me and all 3 pieces for my companion were like this.

We also topped up for teppanyaki chicken and A5 Wagyu (120g), paying about SGD160++ more in total, since it was supposed to be a teppanyaki restaurant. Chicken and Wagyu were both served with stale dry garlic chips that tasted like it was bought from the supermarket (not prepared freshly). Nothing remarkable. Wagyu was nice of course but I could find more affordable and equally, if not better, options elsewhere easily.

Service wise it was friendly but there was also a trainee who didn't seemed adequately trained. I don't think the level of service matched up to the supposedly reputation of the restaurant and of course the prices. Towards the end of the meal, we received nearly no attention. Unfortunately they seated us in a quiet corner of the restaurant for the DiningCity Restaurant Week menu, so it was hard to even have anyone walking by to catch their attention.

Finally, our table had ants crawling all over. We looked under and realised there was a small section that was uncleaned (rather dusty) and full of ants.

Surprisingly good, considering we were there past midnight and we weren't expecting much. Ice cream is rich and waffles is light and crispy.

Just opened recently so it was rather crowded, but the team put up an incredible effort to make everyone feel welcomed. The staff members were all proactive and helpful.

Nice interiors, well-lit and place is kept clean (no sticky tables like the ice cream cafe a few units down).

10 out of 14 ice cream flavours were alcoholic when we were there. Waffle is light and fluffy, with a nice crispy exterior. Will be back!

Opens until 12am on weekends.

The meats are great and we spent just slightly more than $100 for 2 - we ordered 2 meats (Wagyu ribeye and tritip) and a yukke (pictured), a drink and rice for each of us. Service from Audrey is however really slow and bordering on rude.

We were a group of 5 and we ordered 5 different items off the rather limited lunch menu. Each is on point and really tasty, and we were pleasantly surprised by the affordable prices - each bowl cost less than SGD20, and they don't charge GST (just 10% service charge).

Enjoyed the cosy and comfortable environment, and service is really attentive with the team always checking in on us and topping up our water without being asked. Will be back another day to try other items on the menu!

(One of the chefs on duty that day wasn't very hygienic - we could see from our seats very clearly into the open kitchen. Other than when tasting the food, he also kept his mask down for extended periods of time.)

Beef tartare and pan-seared scallops are great as starters. The ribeye steak and rack of lamb are both perfectly grilled and flavourful. Service is a little lacking (slow and inattentive when it got busy at 8pm) for the setting and the prices we pay, but still friendly.
