Another Birthday Dinner At Another Nara Japanese Restaurant


Last Year in Sep, I was celebrating my friend’s birthday at Bukit Timah’s Nara Japanese restaurant. This year wise, I am spending time with my young sister and almost rest the siblings together for her birthday dinner at Nara Japanese Restaurant, but this time we are at Novena. Hidden along the dark alley of the old shophouses, the Nara Japanese Restaurant stands out of the shops, thanks to its traditional Japanese exterior design. Below are some photos for sharing.

Unfresh food at Holland Village Sushi Tei

Today was my girl friend birthday and I was thinking of bringing her for a good dinner at Holland Village Sushi Tei. However, it has proven to be a wrong choice to be eating in this Japanese restaurant. Though they are able to serve food in a considerably quick time, but the dishes lacks of proper plating and it looks as if they are cooking a home dish. 

Dragon Roll I ordered was warm, so was the mango topping. Furthermore, the rice was very sticky and tasted just like glutinous rice. All together it creates a disastrous effect.
Sashimi of 3 Kinds. It is a combination of Yellow Tail, Tuna and Salmon sashimi. The appearance of the slices already shown the lack of experience of the person slicing the fish while each slice look almost 1 cm thick. The Yellow Tail tasted dried and each slice of it was falling apart. The Tuna was in deep red colour and the texture was mushy. Paying $30 for such standard is really a waste of money.
While I actually informed one of the waitress about the sashimi, she look stunned and walk away without saying anything and it was only after 15 minutes, the manager to rectify the problem. Hey, I was paying $200 plus dollars for a 4 pax meal and this was what we get from the food and service ? I think Kopitiam standard can be better than them. 
What a day !
