Someone's turning 9 soon and I've been telling/raving to his mum about this Japanese restaurant all the way in the west that has truly value-for-money ala-carte buffet. So she's thinking of taking him there for his birthday.
I first went there for dinner in early July, and then for lunch twice in August. The quality of food here is definitely better than those you find in sushi chains, even better than Sushi Tei, I dare say. Of course, don't compare to places like Tatsuya or Inagiku lah, those cost a bomb. But for the price, I think the quality and variety can't be beat.
The place is Hoshi and the location is IMM 3rd floor. For now, prices for dinner and lunch are the same (about $25++ for adult and $15++ for child) but call up first to make sure this promotion is still on. And I'd suggest going for lunch as they are less busy. Also, do order all that you want right at the start, seriously, 2nd orders take forever to arrive. Don't be shy, order LOTS, as much as you think you can eat, that is! We did.
Prepare to drool...pictures here.
