MAIU Japanese Restaurant, previously called Umaiya. I think this branch of Umaiya is sold off, and taken over by new management who renamed it MAIU, but the chef, menu etc remain the same.
Appetiser: Edamame is plump and good
Shishamo is perfectly grilled with no burnt bits
Takoyaki is not bad
Interesting and yummy: Unagi deep fried tempura style. Piping hot when served.
Agedashi Tofu and Tofu Steak, the tofu used are japanese type which are soft and smooth
Sashimi: butterfish, red tuna, salmon, octopus and squid
another type of tofu which i think has small unagi bits inside
Beef cube tepanyaki
Looks nice, but taste just so so, avocado+unagi+tempura prawn
Soft shell crab temaki
Unagi and cheese roll, again looks nice, taste just so so, perhaps by then we were overwhelmed by amount of rice in these rolls.
California rolls, with crispy egg
Red tuna roll and unagi roll
Chawanmushi steamed egg
tempura, a bit too oily
Chocolate, and match ice cream
Overall, they are hit and misses.
