A few months ago we first came here for our anniversary celebration, which gave us a really unforgettable dining experience. We tried their Murasaki Tasting Menu and a teppanyaki set which offered food of pretty good quality in general with very nice presentation of the food and attentive service. A few months later, we had the pleasure to visit this place again for dinner at a friend's invitation. It was quite full on a Monday night surprisingly. We first had a glass of orange-juice-like drink

A few months ago we first came here for our anniversary celebration, which gave us a really unforgettable dining experience. We tried their Murasaki Tasting Menu and a teppanyaki set which offered food of pretty good quality in general with very nice presentation of the food and attentive service. A few months later, we had the pleasure to visit this place again for dinner at a friend's invitation. It was quite full on a Monday night surprisingly. 

We first had a glass of orange-juice-like drink which tasted not too sweet and was pretty appetizing.

We had this Daily Jet-Flown Sashimi (5 kinds) as our appetizer. If I hadn't remembered wrongly, they were 鯛魚 thin slices, scallops, 金目鯛 thick cut, some fatty 魚腩 and some grilled sashimi which I had already forgotten (anti-clockwise from 6 o'clock position). The sashimi were all fresh and nice, but less outstanding compared with the cooked dishes afterwards.

A French baguette and walnut bread were served to us along with Rosemary butter and Kombu butter together with our appetizer. The bread was freshly baked. I especially liked the French baguette which was still warm and soft inside but crispy outside although I had left it there for a while before eating. I think it could be one of the best French baguette I had ever tried because French baguette out there was usually too hard. However, the butter was nothing special this one, actually a bit too salty. I really missed the black truffle butter last time which smelt pretty good.

Then our soup arrived - Maitake Mushroom Consomme.
The soup was very clear. The lime juice went really well with the soup and helped enhance the flavour of the soup.

Then we had Teppanyaki Japanese Geoduck and Japanese Whelk. Both of them had great chewy texture. I could tell that they were really fresh. It was recommended that we ate with 麻辣 powder and it went really well with the seafood!

Then here you go the best dish of the night - Lobster with garlic & spring onion in mango sauce.
We were told that it was their recent signature dish. It was like a fusion of the Chinese style using garlic & spring onion and the Western style using mango sauce. The lobster itself was cooked perfectly with some sticky texture to your mouth just like those fresh giant prawn sashimi. The garlic, spring onion and mango sauce were a perfect match which made the whole thing taste so good. I basically finished everything as much as possible. Yummy!

We were told that this Teppanyaki French Milk-fed Baby Lamb Rack would be off menu soon because this type of lamb rack was hard to source. It was really cooked perfectly which was really tender inside but crispy outside! It was free of the typical lamb 羊膻味 and the sauce and seasoning on the side became totally unnecessary. It was good simply eaten on its own.

Teppanyaki Kagoshima A4 Wagyu (thin slices) 100g
A4 was recommended instead of A5 because the latter was too fatty. Indeed, this A4 was good enough. The Wagyu was cooked perfectly which left the Wagyu tender & juicy inside but crispy outside. So bad that we had chatted for a while before eating so that it could have been eaten at an even better temperature!

This Wagyu Beef Inaniwa Udon Noodles surprised me when served because I had only expected a small bowl. They were so considerate that they trimmed the fat of the A4 Wagyu so that it was less fatty. The Wagyu was really super tender! The udon was so thin and smooth as well. It was so pleasant to the mouth to eat this before going for desserts. The soup was pretty clear and we were told that it was made from kombo. I drank quite a bit of the soup and didn't feel thirsty at all afterwards. 

I had heard that it was famous for its dessert delicacies so couldn't help not ordering more to try. Its menu really had quite a number of attractive desserts which took me quite a while to make up my mind. We were told that they had tried to control the sweetness of their desserts.

This one was one of their signatures. It looked so pleasant to the eyes as it looked like a cute flower pot. Taste-wise, I really liked their crispy crumbles which were not sweet at all. The passion fruit and banana sorbet was so refreshing and appetizing, while the coconut foam and pandan leaf were relatively less outstanding.

Warm Sesame Chocolate Fondant with condensed milk gelato
When I first saw it on the menu, I knew I had to try it although it was not one of their signatures! Where else have you ever seen Warm Sesame Fondant? And it turned out that I liked this even better than the Charcoal Crumble! When it was served to us, the sesame smell was so strong! The sesame really flew out of the cake (so bad I hadn't taken a picture to show you). The condensed milk gelato didn't taste much like condensed milk though because it wasn't really sweet.

I wanted to try this for fun because I had never tried curry ice-cream. The curry rice tasted really like curry and it was so smooth, yet you still felt like you were eating desserts but not mains so there was no awkward feeling. The fresh mangoes and the mango mint sauce really enhanced the flavour of the curry gelato. It was such a creative dessert.

Homemade mango & ginger ice cream
Comparatively, this one was less outstanding and the ginger flavour was too strong to have masked the mango flavour. However, the dried mango-like toppings and the fresh mangoes really showed how committed the chef was to making just a simple ice cream scoop even better! 

We also tried some sake which tasted good even to me who normally don't drink alcohols. Also tried some of their self-made Umeshu which were made up of many different alcohols. It was so fruity & sweet & tasty that even I liked it. 

Overall, the quality of the food was so amazingly good. Presentation was so appealing such that you can tell the chefs were really dedicated to giving you a really great dining experience not only to your tongue but also to your eyes. The atmosphere was very comfortable so that you can enjoy a good chat with your dining partners because there was sufficient privacy for most tables.  Service was also pretty attentive. Would definitely recommend this place for a memorable dining experience. 

Thank you very much to our friend who brought us here again this time and try out so much different food.
