We ordered the hire set, chicken katsu set, chicken katsu curry set and a kid's meal. Everything was fine and delicious till my son's meal arrived. His chicken karaage which was part of his kid's set was uncooked. When we alerted them, and the chicken was recooked, they did not bother to redo a new one, just refrying what I... More

This is another restaurant that shows its disdain for customers by charging ($1!) for water. The water in Singapore is perfectly drinkable from the tap so there is no excuse for this beyond pure profiteering. A 10% service charge is levied, which comes to over $2 a head on average. The food is only so-so. Absolutely NOT RECOMMENDED. The way... More

The Rosu Katsu(deep fried pork loin) Set comes with unlimited free flow of cabbage and rice. The freshly-fried Tonkatsu had a nice crunch and yet still moist and tender. Roasted sesame seeds were provided in a small bowl with a wooden grinder so that you can choose to have it coarse or fine. I was told that we were suppose... More

I was here on Dec 24 and ordered rice curry with pork. The portion is very big but for me the taste is just normal. The service is good though.

This restaurant specializes in Japanese tonkatsu. It's one of the more famous tonkatsu restaurant here in Singapore. Quality pork used to make the tonkatsu and they have different cuts for clients to choose. Spent about $30 per person.

The food is really authentic with free cabbage top ups and green tea. I had the OCBC promotion set - Katsu Hire with prawns. This is one of the rare times when I the pork is really lean and the prawns are really big and fresh. Unlike other "fake" Japanese restaurants where food are cooked by the Chinese nationals, you...

This place never fails to serve the best pork 🐷 katsu in town! They are fried to perfection and served with free flow of salad. Another favorite of mine is their fried, but succulent oyster!

Had dinner with friends in this restaurant. I had the Mentaiko Kasane Katsu Set. The presentation of the set is done nicely. The main feature of this set is the slice pork loin that sandwiched the mentaiko (spicy silver cod roe). Set includes a bowl of rice, lots of shredded cabbage, seasoned turnip and a bowl of miso with mustard... More

Passed by this restaurant when we were at Takashimaya. Decided to give it a try since we have tried Ma maison. This is nice than Ma maison in our opinion. The tonkatsu is nice with refillable cabbage. We refilled about 3 times. Staffs are friendly. We will go again when we have the craving :)

From bargain basement foragers to designer label big-spenders, there is something for everyone. For those just browsing, there are countless restaurants, food courts, and cinemas, as well as the odd street entertainer to keep you amused. Most of the malls are connected by underground walkways, offering a break from the sun on a hot day. Bring a credit card and some comfortable shoes, and plunge into the excitement.
