SHIN YUU JAPANESE RESTAURANT
16 Greenwood Avenue, Hillcrest Park, tel: 6763-4939/ 9688-2996. Open daily, noon-3pm, 6-10.30pm. “My family are Japanese-food buffs, so we come here for the a la carte buffet – lunch is about $50 for each adult. The spread is not extensive but the items offered are guaranteed to be mouth-watering.
There’s fresh, melt-in-your-mouth sashimi, sushi, handrolls, piping hot grilled items like tender wagyu beef and seared scallops with roe sauce, as well as garlic rice, just to name a few. We always order the yuzu sorbet for dessert ($5 a cup and not part of the buffet) as it’s such a good palate cleanser.
The chef always throws in a complimentary dish or two, so that’s a surprise we look forward to during each visit. Service is fast, the staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the intimate interior is cosy. My parents also love that it’s within walking distance of our house.” – Linda Fang, 39, business owner
