Watami (2nd Floor, North Wing, SM MOA)

WatamiDate visited: May 2013

What we ate:

Watami Salad, Salmon Sashimi, Shrimp Tempura Roll and Pepper Beef Rice in Stone Pot


Taste = 5/5

–          They have one of the best Salmon Sashimi’s I have tasted – very fatty and very fresh. Lyn and I were fighting for each of the succulent pink pieces of delicate raw heaven but we weren’t obvious about it. The watami salad was good. It had crisp veggies with shrimp, grilled chicken, tuna mayo and a sesame-based dressing. The tempura roll was prepared really well and tasted very good. It had a brown sauce that tasted sweet and when I dipped it in soy sauce with wasabi, the combination was excellent. The Pepper Beef Rice was placed in a very hot stone pot and the server was kind enough to mix it for us. Since the meal was cooked almost entirely in front of us, the beef was great. Hopefully, the meat-to-rice ratio would improve in the future (too much rice, too little meat). The stone pot was so hot that it kept the dish warm until the time we finished the dish. The minor drawback was that the rice at the bottom became toasted when left unattended.


Service = 5/5

–          I went to the restroom just as we entered the restaurant and when I came to our table, the dishes were already being served. Talk about fast service! The servers were very polite and accommodating as well.


Ambience = 5/5

–          The place was big and everything was clean and tidy. The place looked very contemporary and it wasn’t in-your-face Japanese inside at all. It was a nice and comfortable place to eat. I hope they could maintain the look and feel of the restaurant.


Value for money = 4/5

–          The prices were a little too high in my opinion but the food was excellent.
