Live teppanyaki cooking

Just take your pick and the chef will prepare your teppanyaki in minutes.


The salmon, prawn and beef are my favourite items from the live teppanyaki station. I had multiple servings of them as they are cooked just the way I like it with the thinly sliced beef steak really brings out the flavour of the meat and is really easy to eat.

Featuring selections personally concocted by Assistant Japanese Chef Tommy Kuan, the enriching gastronomic affair encompass over 75 mouth-watering items and is made up by 7 main selections – appetizer, sashimi, maki, hot items, salad, live station teppanyaki and dessert as well as main course choices cooked fresh to order from the a la minute menu.

Seasoned baby octopus is always my favourite and the ones here proves to be just perfect. Seasoned with sweet and rich teriyaki sauce, I just can’t have enough of these.

Onsen tamago salad

My jaw literally dropped onto the table when I saw this onsen tamago salad. These poached eggs are just too perfect, I went crazy! No prize for guessing who ate the most eggs that evening :oops:

Hot Item Selections


Edamame is also a hit with diners.

My boys had an enjoyable time feasting on ‘bottomless’ edamame. They are huge fans of edamame and having these in the buffet spread is such a joy.

Chawan Mushi



I also find this stew of root vegetables and other ingredients very appealing. It stays tasty even after it has cooled off. 



The boys love the eggs in the oden.

We also tried their udon and cold soba. The boys love the fried udon best.

sacher cake

Sacher Cake is sure to delight your sweet tooth with its rich chocolate and apricot preserves. 



The manju here caught my eyes as they are made to look like the famous raindrop cake but they are actually a traditional Japanese confection alike to the mochi. 

red bean dessert

Our dinner is further enchanted with desserts such as this sweet red bean soup with mochi. 

mixed fruits

ice cream

Assortments of ice cream to keep the kids happy.

Such a beautiful scene seeing the big brother sharing his ice cream with the little one :lol:

    The last time I had a Japanese buffet was when celebrating Jamie’s 1st birthday. Gosh! Almost 2 years since I indulge in one.

    Everything looks so good and tempting. But I cannot take too much. Age catching up, tummy no longer that big. Hehehe.

    I also like the last pic of the boys. Hmm, my boys?? Sure fight or dont want to share. They are loving but they also like to fight. Brothers!

    I think if I go, I will just gorge myself with the teppanyaki and sashimi. Those sushi looks like cheap sushi, just plated nicely. Nah…

    Yay for bottomless of edamame!

    I like to eat Japanese food but since I could not eat much, I don’t think I want to pay so much for this buffet.
