Fans of Japanese food and buffets need only head here to live out their dream. This “Japanese gourmet bazaar” is the mother of Japanese buffets with its dizzying array of authentic Japanese cuisine—sashimi, sushi, tempura, teppanyaki, yakitori, paper steamboat, noodles, and desserts. The menu changes monthly so you can come here as often as you want and not be bored. The signature dish is the zuwaikani (snow crab)—only served during dinner. Also at #B1-47/51 Jurong Point, 1 Jurong West Central 2, 6792-9286; #02-41A/42 Great World City, 1 Kim Seng Promenade, 6836-5877.
Kuishin-Bo has just been revamped, and we checked it out to see how it’s faring. It is brighter and more colorful now, with a larger seating capacity, but decked in modern, wooden furnishings, it still retains that signature cozy and casual feel. And if an eclectic variety of food is top on your list when it comes to buffets ( for lunch and for dinner on weekdays; for lunch and for dinner on weekends), you got it here. From sushi to sashimi, crabs to clams, tempura to yakitori, Japanese paper steamboats to desserts, you’ll be lost for choice. But only selected offerings like its savory soft shell crab rolls and the tasty barbequed items shine—most of the dishes are fairly mediocre. Its sashimi wasn’t very fresh either, perhaps because they might have been left out in the open. Service falls short—no smiles greeted us when we arrived, and the server attending to us seemed clueless when we asked him questions. To bring more frowns, our empty plates weren’t cleared fast enough. Summing up, come if you’re up for an extensive array of food, and want a little of everything with your friends or family—but don’t expect top notch food (or service).
