While there are some fish that taste good, there isn’t a variety of fishes served. With the 400 per person set, there isn’t any wagyu or beef, mostly white fish. Also, the difference of sushi served compared to 450 per person set is too vast...to warrant the 50 dollar difference. We were told that the 450 dollar per person set has abalone, that’s it. What we saw were completely different because we saw that people who go for the 450 per person has lobster, 3 Uni, abalone and other dishes that we didn’t get. What was bizarre was the second uni we received which taste unfresh and to be honest, taste really awful! Told the Chinese chef but he said everything is fresh. I checked with my hubby and he agreed with me as we have one too many Omakase experience in Singapore and in Japan. Our set ends with fruits that don’t look very generous. Half a white strawberry, small orange, melon and mango. Mango is not even a Japanese fruit, can they select muscat grape or give one whole strawberry instead? To our surprise, we were also told that we don’t have ice cream in our set, but the chef gave them to us, which we appreciate. I would say that the quality, taste and rice do not make me want to return because there isn’t creativity in the sushi, taste wise it is pretty standard and all of them are smoky except for cuttlefish, the fish are cut so small and thinly and the rice keep falling apart. Everything is so-so except for the Baku uni which was really awful, and nothing really stands out positively.More

I was served an aged parrot fish nigiri that was smelly and stinky. My wife agreed with me of the unpleasant smell. A few gd pieces but generally everything is aged so a hardy stomach for those adventurous

I urged travellers and singaporean to try Chef Ashino. It is very good if he is serving. To be fair the 120 lunch at Shinji is better value but if u want aged sushi for an umpphhh . This is the place to go ....Better than hashida and sushi Kimura but behind Shinji and shoukouwa in my opinionMore

Had lunch omakase at Ashino. Pace for the meal was good and Chef was very nice and fluent in English. He explained each component accurately with details. The whole meal is very enjoyable . It will be beneficial if the restaurant include some price tag...for some items to avoid some confusion or unhappiness during the settlement of the bill.More

The food standard was amazing as always but for $250++ a head and we probably had around twelve pieces of sushi max and around three side dishes (special chawanmushi, fish done three ways, and another thing) then that was it? My friends and I were...still hungry. The meal ended up the egg custard cake. No nigiri. No maki. No nothing. Then came fruits. I believe if we had gone for the 120$ lunch set we most likely would have been more full. That explains why we were the only people there. Afraid that would be the last time we go there again. We paid for an Omakase but got half of one. One hour was all it took...More

I arrived without booking. I had the $120 menu plus 1 beer & some amazing sake. Not cheap but what an amazing experience. Honestly it’s a 9.5 out of 10. Very passionate owner/ chef. I will return next time I am in Singapore.
