The place was simple in decoration, with a small menu with 4 items at the door. Inside the first one saw was the counter seats with a couple of private rooms on the right. All the customers were sit at the counter, each chef serving about 2 to 3 customers. I decided on Mizukagami 水鏡 lunch set (S$100++) as it had both raw and cooked items in it.

Appetiser
Tsubugai - soya sauce boiled sea whelk. Not too salty and kind of chewy.

Assorted sashimi, served with seven years aged soya sauce.
White fish
Hotate - scallop topped with black charcoal salt and yuzu zest, refreshing taste
Akami zuke - soya marinated tuna
Fish topped with grounded ginger and spring onion
Hotaru ika - firefly squid, seasonal spring item, inside was very creamy and delicate.

Cooked Dish
Rainbow trout fish wrapped with sakura leaf, topped with sakura flower. The flower actually tasted not bad. The fish was very smooth.

5 piece Sushi Medley
Kinmedai - snapper
Tako - octopus, surprisingly smoother than what I usually had.
Chūtoro (中とろ) which was medium fatty tuna
Bafun Uni - rich and buttery texture of the sea urchin
Anago oshisushi - unagi served in osaka style with marinated rice, it was kind of bland


Mini Don
Finely minced fatty tuna with salmon roe, on top of sushi rice. Served with 7 years aged soya sauce. Super tiny serving. Simply melt in the mouth.

Soup
Suimono. Clear seaweed soup served with a chewy piece of mochi. Refreshing smoothing in the tummy.

Dessert
Green tea jelly, topped with red bean. The jelly was chewy with slight green tea taste. It was served with Sakura sorbet which was milky with a slight floral taste.

Service was not bad. Tea was refilled regularly. The japanese chef serving me explained each dish he served but half the time I could not understand him. Sometimes the staff serving tea would help to explain too.

Perfect setting, service and menu. A pleasure to enjoy the sweet uni from Hokkaido in Singapore. Great experience for anyone seeking true Japanese food. The picturesque quarter add to the pleasure. We will definitely go back!

Mitsuya is so under rated. While Shinji at Raffles Hotel is considered the best in Singapore, I find it too formal but quality and traditional jap sushi.

Mitsuya, under Chef Harada-San, brings certain creativity to sushi, often surprising you with some combinations! Not to mention he can speak Cantonese (picked up during his stint in HK-Sushi Hiro). The staff and chef constantly makes you feel like home with informal laughs and jokes. However, he will professionally leave you alone when you are hosting a business lunch/dinner.

The omakase meal will not disappoint with quality sushi. I often request for my "3-color" rice bowl which Chef will prepare with Baby Shrimp+Chopped Tuna+Uni. It's heavenly! Once, I went into the restaurant at 930pm (they finishing last order) just to have a small bowl!

Sometimes, they have uni-night or tuna-night where an entire blue-fin tuna is dissected in front of you. And the best part, you get to taste different parts that you won't get at other restaurants.

For those that prefer a lighter atmosphere but quality sushi, try to get a table in front of Chef Harada.

Came back here today for another visit and opted for the chirashi lunch set. This consisted of a chirashi bowl and a selection of smaller dishes served in sequence. Efficient service throughout and very tasty and fresh fish. Worth returning for another visit.

Was there for lunch today.
The ambience was great especially the private room.
Good selection of sake.
And the Chef selection was most scrumptious.
