Just finished our meal in this "hole in the wall" restaurant. My wife and I had the Aki Bento which was as good as any we had on our trips to Japan. Great service, excellent sake menu and mid-range prices. From the Novena MRT take the United Square underpass and when you come up a the other side take the... More

This is a relaxing, well run, neighbourhood restaurant. The food is very fresh and the service is polite and helpful. The sashimi is excellent and the new chef is great. Definitely worth giving this one a try!

It still has excellent sushi, sushi maki, bento meals, tempura shrimp and vegetables with udon or soba noodles. Welcoming yet unobtrusive service. We spent $60 Singapore dollars for dinner for two (green tea included, no other... More

Had a business lunch with four people. The space is slightly tight if you need to talk serious business, but for networking it is great. It was well visited which is always a good sign. We had a selection of sushi and it was really good. Some traditional nigiri and some adventurous maki rolls. The rice was perfect and the... More

On 11 Jan 16, I and my siblings had a wonderful lunch at Nara Japanese Restaurant@Goldhill Centre (not to be confused with Nara Thai Restaurant originating from Bangkok: aside from the type of cuisine being served, the former refers to the historic city which was also the first capital of ancient Japan - as in ‘Nara Deer Park’ or ‘Nara...

This place has a nice ambience, great food and good service, ask the staff in advance when the fresh food arrives in the week. Ms Mei Lee offers good service and always remembers what our favourite dishes are.

We will never set foot here again. Four of us ate here last night. The food is so-so. The cook lacks imagination so there appears to be miso or tau chionh in everything! The sashimi was mediocre and poorly cut. The oil used to fry tempura was clearly stale. They messed up our orders resulting in a very extended meal.... More
