Ambience was good like that of an authentic Japanese restaurant. Private rooms with traditional Japanese setting are also available for business casual gatherings. However, food is only average and grilled fish items are too tough, overcooked and at times salty.

Is located at Zhongshan mall. Big space. I ordered a Saba fish set ($13.00), chicken teriyaki set and a ramen. Total with drinks less than $50.00 Food is not bad. Weekend is long queue and waiting time is long too.

We visited the place for early dinner to enjoy the 20% discount between 530pm to 7pm. It was a rainy evening, and so the hot towels they provided were a pleasant touch. Green tea was refillable and they filled up rather promptly without needing us to request. They had a Japanese channel on TV and authentic Japanese vibes overall. My... More

I walked passed this one day and decided to give it a try. The food was amazing, really enjoyable. The food tasted fresh, and was full of flavour. The staff were helpful and the service was quick. Nothing to disappoint here, excellent.

Tried this restaurant with my wife and son for lunch. We ordered salmon sashimi, terrible. It was not fresh. The tempura was ok. The Unagi sushi was mediocre, u can tell the Unagi was not very fresh also, but the Sauce covered the unfreshness of the eel. The kurobuta pork Katsu was ok. Then the Gindara teriyaki was also very... More

Kotobuki Japanese Restaurant was very convenient to our hotel as it is in a mall that is attached to the Ramada. We walked in for a snack and were pleasantly surprised. The salad was delicious as were the samosas. The servers are pleasant but do not speak much English. The hot or iced green tea is reasonable and they offer... More

I'm trying to recall my old memory of the restaurants I patrolled when I stayed in Jurong West 15-20 years ago. Hence, I decided to hunt for restaurants in the west starting from this one. We ordered Udon noddle, Unagi rice and a plate of cod fish with salmon roe sauce. The atmosphere of the restaurant & taste of the... More
