Tucked down a nar­row pas­sage­way, tra­di­tional Ja­panese restau­rant Tatsu fo­cuses on sushi and tep­pa­nyaki, com­plete with ded­i­cated sushi and tep­pa­nyaki coun­ters. The restau­rant's con­ser­va­tive, al­most func­tional decor should give you a hint of the cui­sine here: pre­dom­i­nantly tra­di­tional, though there are con­tem­po­rary touches here and there. A good, solid restau­rant, the food is con­sis­tently good and well ex­e­cuted, and the ser­vice is fault­less. Its uber cen­tral lo­ca­tion at Asia Square Tower 2 means that it packs in a good lunch crowd who come for its premium bento meals.

Have the sig­na­ture pi­tan tofu, an ap­pe­tiser of tofu topped gen­er­ously with a rich, creamy cen­tury egg sauce—the star of the meal—and the sea­sonal grilled sea bream. The fish is very fresh and grilled to a per­fect crisp on the out­side, moist and flaky in­side. For high-end surf and turf, have the gen­er­ous sev­en­course wagyu and lob­ster set. The lob­ster and wagyu are served in sep­a­rate hearty por­tions, cooked delectably and drip­ping with juices, and the stir-fried mush­rooms and seafood fried rice are nicely done with in­tense flavours and per­fect tex­tures. *Good to note They seem to have in­ter­est­ing wine and sake pro­mo­tions from time to time. Be sure to check in with your server on it. Asia Square Tower 2, #02-16, 12 Ma­rina View, Sin­ga­pore 018961 Tel: 6844 9855
