Very average. Tbh we only ate here bc we had an event and had to have a late dinner, and this happened to be open. Not great but also the portions were ridics small. And it’s not very cheap either. Ichiban boshi / sushi tei would be better. Will not return~

Unfortunately the miso soft serve is no longer avail. “Tokyo Banana inspired soft serve” was alright, banana flavour was present and there were fresh bananas too, but it was ruined by the ridiculously un-crunchy popcorn, which was glued together by caramel that stuck to your teeth and made the entire thing too sweet. They should just buy Garrett’s popcorn and put it on, it would have been a much better experience.

Very meh. Noodles were ok thi not what I expected - it’s thinner than the Vietnamese noodles I usually have at Vietnamese stores. The beef was terrible, full of tendons, with barely any meat to eat. It’s marinated with lemongrass, and it wasn’t dry, but it’s a bit sweet. Spring rolls were crisp but tasted average, lettuce and pickled veg were fine. Not coming back.

Cheap but errrr I would rather go have bibimbap at Hyang Yeon. Ingredients were okay - there’s spinach, seaweed, beansprouts, zucchini, carrots, egg, and beef. Nothing was bad but everything was very average. The rice tho, was terribly mushy - I don’t know if it’s an off-day or what but it was ridiculous, we’ve never had such mushy rice anywhere 😢 The hot stone bowl was really good tho, it kept my food steaming hot (not warm but hot) throughout the meal, and allowed a crust to develop like in claypot rice. That was the only portion of the rice worth eating. The mushy rice I managed to eat was so that I wouldn’t waste food.

Banchan was average as well, there’s seasoned potatoes, beansprouts, kimchi, pickled radish, broccoli, and macaroni. This is definitely one of the least impressive Korean restaurants I’ve been to. Oh well, at least it was cheaper than usual - $14 after service charge and gst.

This is a reminder to myself and everyone not to get this ever - it’s edible but it’s really not great. The chicken patty was thin and limp, sauce was rly goopy and way too peppery. The bun and onions were ok, onions were not as raw as I had expected. Not horrible, but also a sad meal option.

Initially I thought this was an okay muffin - not dry but not super moist either, no artificial banana taste, walnuts were q sparse. Not the best but decent.

But after the first bite there was a very drying taste on the tongue, and left a bad aftertaste. Consider me scarred I’m sticking to their steamed bread / kaya toast.

Duck was not tender, rice quality wasn’t great. We usually finish our food because we don’t like wasting food, but for this we struggled to even have half of it.

This was meh. The brown rice served was not the white Japanese kind and wasn’t sticky and plump, think it’s because they are trying to be healthy. The chicken was like food court standard, and the dish was quite saucy because of the egg but not in a particularly tasty way. Would say that this was edible and healthy but if I were to have healthy food there are much better options in cbd.

Has a p strong milk powder flavour which wasn’t nice, texture was strange bc it was like bread but also spongy? Definitely will not get this again as we really did not like it.

Saw a 1-4-1 promo for this, and hence decided to try it. However, it was pretty meh. Nothing really impressed - the rice, although different from what u get at Chinese restaurants, was hardly pearly enough to be considered Japanese rice; the unagi was decent but it had some small bones in it, and it would have been alright if haven’t tried man man before (man man wins hands down); the dashi broth was decent too but nothing to shout about. Not to say that this meal was bad, but if they’re going to charge $38 (full price) I think the food should have been of a better standard. The place was rather filled tho, so maybe their other menu items are better? I guess I’ll never know, because I’m unlikely to make a return visit.

Ahh this was so meh. We saw quite a few tables having this, so we decided to try a plate too. However, we were sorely disappointed - the sauce was a bit too sweet, the horfun was average, and the braised mushrooms weren’t fragrant. The shredded chicken was clean tasting, and it was the nicest part of the dish. Really wanted to like this as I love ipoh horfun, but this was a no-go :(

Preferred the triple fromage as it was light and cheesy, and had a salty kick from the cheese sprinkles on top. The tiramisu was nearly tasteless, save for the mild coffee taste. Also, the slices have shrunk by so much, we were appalled at how small they’ve become. Might return to try other better flavours, but the tiramisu is a big no.
