The appetizer and main course was good, but the dessert was great. The service was great. If you have special request, they will try to manage it.

1. Ordered Chirashi (Kyodai) but the waitress said that the fish they had is only salmon and tuna, other fishes is not available because of not good selling. So we ordered sushi roll. The taste is very general like sushi fast food in the mall. Also the speed is very slow.
2. Ordered spaghetti carbonara. The taste is very very general. Seems like beginner cooker taste. And also too milky.
3. Ordered wagyu in garlic butter steak : ok.
The last thing : SHOCKING BILL. It is overpriced. Fine dining price with very not a fine dining taste and service. Never ever go back again!

4/5 based on the location. Not worldwide. Average worldwide.

Building - lovely colonial building.

Ambiance - only us in the room. Ok for us but depends whether you ok with that.

Service - tried hard. Very attentive and friendly.

Food - started good but faltered on way. Appetisers and soup good. Mains (fajitas) a bit bland. Salmon not available. Desert (one choice) not available. Replacement option 30 mins to prepare - decided not to wait.

Price - 1.4m for two. Seems fair. Not OTT.

Overall - had much worse. Enjoyed the evening.

Would I come again - potentially.

We went at the invite of a friend, because they have a Mexican restaurant. Service was OK, because the restaurant was empty. Mexican food was a disappointment. Not at all authentic. When the bill came I was truly shocked. Very expensive. Won't go back.
