    Last night, we celebrated Mother's Day at Yugen Dining Nidaime Omakase and it was truly a memorable experience. The food was absolutely incredible, especially the octopus that the chef slow-cooked for 6-7 hours. It was incredibly tender and juicy. Every dish we tried was amazing and the service was outstanding. We had a fantastic time and are grateful for the wonderful dining experience. Thank you so much, we will definitely be returning in the future.

    5 stars for the food and very nice space, which contributed to the relaxed ambience. We booked a late afternoon sitting at 3:30pm, so this impacted our experience as the staff and space looked like they had had a hectic day so perhaps would recommend booking earlier to get the full experience.

    Tea bar serving a variety of tea and cake choices with a nice interior. I’m a frequent visitor and have realised they give customers different treatment. Took my mum out for mother’s day however did not have a very pleasant experience because of the lack of attention and mistakes. Normally the service is great but have come to realise it depends on the waiter allocated to us, but that one day really disappointed us and managers didn’t seem to care a lot.

    Enjoyed our anniversary dinner with the Nidaime Omakase option. Small intimate set up with lovely host / chef. Definitely not your usual Omakase and those who wants something different will definitely appreciate the adventurous twist. Will come back to try other options.

    Great food and intimate experience with the chef, he really explained everything in detail and had some wonderful new dishes. My only gripe is that there was a $55 extra charge for the mere fact it was a Sunday?
