Singaporean foodies can’t resist a good buffet. Since Kiseki Japanese Buffet Restaurant opened in June, I have passed by this place numerous times, and have always wanted to try it out. With close to 29 categories and over 200 selections, one is definitely spoilt for choice!
The restaurant claimed its must-trys are: chawanmushi, the grilled selection, Japanese curry, custom-made handrolls, and for dessert, tofu cheesecake.
The yakitori counter and teppanyaki counters were our favorite. My friend and I couldn’t get enough of the the yakitori chicken; for the teppanyaki counter, somehow the garlic fried rice was unbelievably tasty (I think we went for three rounds of rice) while the other great stuff were the teppanyaki pork and chicken. They were extremely well seasoned and cooked! Basically, we kept going back for more.
There was also the sushi and sashimi counter. The sushi roll was interesting—it was coated with shichimi, or “seven flavor chili pepper.” The coating was crazily spicy, and might not suit some tastes. The fun part of our meal was when we ordered custom made handrolls with extra tempura prawn. It was a jumbo handroll overflowing with shrimp!

For the lighter palate, there is a salad counter, where one can opt for pasta salad, mixed greens, potato salad, or seafood salad. For those who love eggs, you can have endless bowls of chawanmushi and tamagoyaki.
There is a tempura counter for those who like deep-fried foods, while the kids will love the fusion counter with its mix of Italian and Japanese. It serves thin-crust pizza, a la minute pasta, stuffed crab shells, takopachi balls and more!
Remember to keep some room for the Japanese curry with rice and the stew. There is also a soba counter, hotpot counter, and a dessert counter with an extra choice of white chocolate fondue. A must-try there is the tofu cheesecake.
Families with kids can prebook a children’s corner or family corner where one can watch the kids play while eating.
