Came here to try the iconic chicken rice.

Ordered the individual portion of chicken rice to share, it was good, rice cooked well and flavourful with stock, chicken was tad dry, however well marinated. The chicken slices (boneless) were on a bed of lettuce and few slices of cucumber. Chili was not too garlicky (which I preferred to avoid garlic breath) which was accompanied with ginger purée and dark soy sauce.

Also tried the char kway teow, rojak and oyster omelette.

The char kway teow had a good wok hei to it.

The rojak had variety of ingredients from the usual fruits and additional ones like jambu (water apple). The yu tiao (dough fritters pieces) were crispy and coated with sauce. Taste wise a tad sweet IMO.

Interesting rendition of oyster omelette which reminded me of the Japanese omu rice where the ingredients are encased within the egg omelette and the tangy chili sauce dosed on top of the omelette like a sauce. Would have been better if the chili sauce to be served on the side instead as the omelette and oysters were drowning in the sauce covering all taste with the sauce. Also, texture wise, it’s all soft and lumpy. Unlike the hawker version which has crispy bits.

Wasn’t expecting much from the coconut shake however was pleasantly surprised (after the shocked from the oyster omelette). Blended coconut ice cream with juice, bits of chin chow and chunky red bean brought highlight to simple ingredients. Yummy!

On the service side, it could have been better, as we have asked to change our seats not once but multiple times throughout our dining session as they were high stools and my pregnant girlfriend was 7 months pregnant was quite a big tummy hence the chair was uncomfortable and the table clearance barely touching her tummy. Not mentioning there were empty tables which was “reserved”. Disappointing with the lack of human touch.

I didn’t want the meal to end so I also got the SUJU Custard Pudding ($8). The thick bittersweet caramel with its pleasant burnt aroma went superbly with the firm, rich texture of the chilled pudding. The deep egg custard flavour with its sweet hint of vanilla was pretty sublime as well.

My latest payday splurge meal brought me right back to Japan! With their many lunch set options, SUJU Restaurant’s Gindara Misozuke Yaki Teishoku ($48) came highly recommended, and rightly so as the delicate slab of black cod was grilled perfectly. Moist, succulent, and flakey, the oiliness of the fish was so so buttery good. A little heavy on the flavour, the crunchy pickled radish on the side really helped counter that. Oh and let’s not forget the miso marinate which gave the protein a great, comforting savouriness. However, not completely free of bones, do be careful when biting into the fish. And to warm up your belly, upgrade the lunch set miso soup to their Tonjiru for an additional $5. Chockful of ingredients, the soup was really rich - filled with pork belly slices, chunks of konnyaku, and various root vegetables.

Used the set meal and restricted to order the shiitake (14.90) and Shoyu ramen (17.90) only even though burpple and their set menu image didn’t state anything about their restriction. Did the math for all the items and couldn’t add up to their UP 79.90 as stated in the set menu image. 2 sake ice cream ($9.90 each), 2 iced green tea ($2.40 each), 2 hard boiled eggs (presumably $1 each), gyoza ($7.90) and 2 Shoyu chashu ramen ($17.90 each).

Asked the staff, they took the calculator, repeatedly did the math and the final number is $68?? How is this one for one deal if I’m paying $39.90 plus plus. Also we ordered the most expensive items we could in this set menu.

Honestly, if they can’t afford to do a one for one deal, they shouldn’t even pretend they can, quite a disappointment.

Soup is bland and there’s no “mountain” of scallions as shown in the image. we finished all the food because the portion is too little so gotta get a more satisfying dinner after this. Paid $47.40 for two after GST and service charge.

they have increased price to $7 from $5.80 but still affordable.
chicken is tender and goes really well with the gravy and curry.

This fine rendition features chargrilled boneless chunks of monkfish, marinated in yoghurt and a special tandoori spice mix, then slow-cooked in the tandoor oven.

The fish has a tender flaky smooth texture, with a clean-tasting smoky savoury spice sweet flavour.

Served with chewy bite-sized Mughlai paratha with smoky bready sweet buttery flavour.

PSA they also sell this 3 slices of premium wagyu kushi, you can tell from the marbling it's serious business, definitely trying that next

Proper wagyu, for 4.9nett that's enough said.

Although if I really had to nitpick, compared to the much more fancy wagyu places, this was slightly drier.

Definitely worth a try

PS Not quite sure how they create this product, it's too neatly square to be done by a human quickly

PSS I went at 630pm on a sat and got really lucky, there was no one queueing and after I bought suddenly 4 ppl were after me queueing. And after those 4 they ran out of this kushi

This was fantastic. The yuzu cream/custard had a strong yuzu fragrance, which combined so well w the creaminess. The mochi skin was soft, chewy, and stretchy too. Lovely stuff, if only the mochi skin was a tad thinner it would have been really perfect

At this price, and since it's available everywhere, it's a must try

Quite ridiculous. For this price, the noodles themselves weren't particularly good, and the stock was not even as good as some of the better hokkien mees

There's squid rolls and large crystal prawns inside to justify the price

Chili was very sour and spicy, that worked fine

No need to try this. There wasn't even much wok hei
