    Picked this place for a work-related lunch as I've been there for a quiet dinner and thought it was really a nice place and I came to know they had a set lunch going for $28 which was a steal compared to their ala carte dinner selection and prices. Food was good during my dinner visit previously so couldn't resist trying out their lunch.

    Their weekday set lunch goes for $28 for 4-course of modern jap cuisine which they specialise in. What we had included:

    Entree selection

    Tartare of Salmon - served with wafu and rayu dressing, sprinkled with crispy garlic chips - my favorite of the meal! I like salmon everything and the dressing was really nice, although I have no idea what is rayu. Thoughtful for the salmon pieces to be cut into bite-sized pieces and the accompanying greens are fresh too.

    Fruits and berries salad - served with homemade apple dressing salad and cashew nuts - didnt have this but it looked very tempting with all the colours! It looked better than on paper~

    Warm dish

    Kabocha Soup - puree of japanese pumpkin with cinanmon, honey and grated parsley - pure comfort food. Almost non-sweetened with the puree having just the right texture to 'feel' the pumpkin bits. I like!

    Kani Chawamushi - topped with century egg dressing and fish roe - those who did not order this half-regretted their choices when we saw this. And tasted it. Should have known to order chawamushi in a Jap place! The dressing was very uniquely tasty and the roe provided a nice crunch to the otherwise mushy dish.

    Main course

    Salmon fillet - baked salmon with goat cheese stuffing, served with hollandaise sauce - Didnt have this but it looked really stuffed with cheese. There's also an option of having this without the goat cheese.

    Char-broiled chicken teriyaki - served with garlic chahan and chives by the side - The chicken was huge and the teriyaki sauce done very nicely without being cloyingly sweet. The only regret was I dont take chicken skin but all the essence of the char-broiled was in the skin. Sigh. The accompanying fried rice was nicely garlicky but too big a portion for me, couldnt finish it.

    Dessert (no choices to select from)

    Lime sorbet - served with passionfruit puree, pomegranate, blueberries and pomelo - what could otherwise be a boring dessert turned out to be quite interesting with the different texture thrown in. A good ending to a good meal.

    I had a coffee too which was freshly pressed from a neat-looking machine behind the main area.

    Ambience is appropriately quiet during lunch with a few tables occupied but it also means staff is quite attentive throughout, without being intrusive. Hot tea was topped up frequently and service was efficient.

    The only gripe is this is really hard to get to without a car but a cab from Buona Vista MRT will work just fine I guess.
