Celebrating my wife's birthday and I was amazed by the food and the customer experience especially by Mathan who gives attention to details to explain all our menus ordered. We ordered a few ala carte menus like tuna pizza, scallop, short ribs, and the food...was a delight to our appetite. We ended with a free birthday celebration gift - strawberry pannacotta. Lovely and would come back.More

Went on a date with my husband. What a lovely treat ! There were so many choices on the menu we decided to just have the set dinner. The combination of tastes in each dish was out of this world ! And the plating was...simply gorgeous too. We had a lovely time enjoying the food as well as the service of our server. He was professional, and would tell us the name of each dish , and sometimes , how to eat it. Will certainly return for special occasions .More

Perhaps one of the best restaurants in SG where each and every dish ordered (and we ordered quite a few) were excellent. Combined with a relaxed spacious ambience and highly efficient service. One of us had an emergency and was running late which I explained...right at the beginning and the staff were fully understanding and did not rush us to place orders since we were going slow with our orders till all arrived. Even thereafter, they were extremely helpful, explaining the portions and advising on orders while helping us try different dishes. Kudos to the restaurant and a huge welcome change from the current scenario where we are pushed to finish meals within 1.5-2 hours at most places. Special mention and thanks for Nadia, the staff who served us.More

Innovative omakase. Will list what we enjoyed most. The truffle & tuna pizza is highly recommended to order the ala carte (in future) where the truffle oil was very fragrant. Texture of raspberry Choux is also fantastic, crispy & soft at the same time! Scallop...and kiwi is also an interesting combo. Nigiri is fresh but the sushi rice seems to fall apart the moment you hold it. Foie gras is fresh too. However some of the other combo didn seem to go too well e.g. eggplant & mozzarella don't go that well together. And the Haibut had a strong fishy taste.More

Food was fantastic, everything was tantalising in the mouth and the attention to detail in presentation as well as the passion taken to cook the jidori chicken, everything's a 10/10. The ambience and futuristic music definitely complements the modern fusion twist in the food and...the service by Mr Mathan was top notch. He was attentive and showed keen knowledge in the dishes served. The restaurant had even served me a complementary dessert that made my birthday complete. Thank you so much for everything I will definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends!More

Please make known your dietary restrictions and any request(s) that you may have before ordering - They have this stated in their menu also. They are awesome, hence, I am sure they will meet your dietary restrictions.
