So, like you I've bought this Shabuya Shabu Shabu Buffet Voucher with my friends. (totaly 7 of us). A 50% discount on shabu shabu and free flow of beer... why not right? And look, we can have it on a weekday night even though we can't eat it on weekends, after work is still reasonable)
Though it was a little sucky because it's at Vivocity only, but everyone made the effort to head over from central/north and east of Singapore.
What this terms & condition on this voucher didn't tell you are the following things:
- Yes, you can dine from 6pm to 10pm but your reservation can only be at 6pm (we tried to reserve at 7:30pm but he told us the buffet strictly starts at 6pm) THEN WHY DID YOU PUT 6-10PM? Excuse me? How many people actually get off work at 5pm to reach 6pm?
- We managed to push the booking to 6:30pm (which all of us RUSHED like mad to reach Vivo City) and guess what, you're given only 90 minutes from 6:30pm to eat. And it wasn't like 90 minutes is last order, is you have to LEAVE by 90 minutes. When we were asked to leave, the restaurant was 1/2 empty. Seriously.
Yes so you're like rushing your meal throughout, totally not able to enjoy your food.
Another thing, the food sucked. Sashimi wasn't very fresh, the food was mediocre. I was glad to only have paid $30 for the voucher. Asking me to pay $60 for the food I had? I'd rather queue for Hai Di Lao. I paid $30+ for Hai Di Lao, though yes it wasn't a buffet but it was way better. WAY BETTER.
Even with the voucher, forget about this place. Completely.
|Since it was a buffet, they gave us everything they have on their menu based on 4pax portion. Anyway they don't even have any other chili available except small chilli, pathetic.|
|This is what they have, everything's here.|
|The only good thing? Individual pot. With barely just 1/4 of the pot filled with the soup.|
I'm not even going to put the address of this place.
Just, ignore this place. Meh.
