Sukiya Review (Century Square)

Sukiya at Century Square is located at the rear entrance on the ground floor of the shopping mall. The mall is connected to the Tampines Mall that in turn has a sheltered linkway to the Tampines MRT station. We chanced upon the outlet while searching for a quick dinner in the Tampines area and decided to give it a try.

It was around 4:30pm when we visited the outlet. There were only 1 couple of diners in the restaurant and a group of secondary school students waiting to be seated at the entrance. It wasn’t long before we were ushered in by a young and petite girl. We noticed that most of the staffers at this outlet were very youthful like this girl, likely to be below 18.

As we got seated, the usher mumbled something, pointed to a QR code printed on a piece of paper and walked away without giving us a chance to clarify. We found her action rather rude and it is definitely not representative of Japanese’s service spirit. Nonetheless, we proceeded to scan the QR code and that led us to an online ordering website. As we were browsing through their menu, two complimentary mugi-cha were served to our table.

Though we have had self-served complimentary mugi-cha or ocha when we patronised restaurants in Japan, it is uncommon for it to be served in mass market Japanese restaurants in Singapore. We were quite surprised that it was served at this casual dining restaurant.

As we wanted to compare Sukiya’s gyudon with the ones we had at Yoshinoya in Japan and in Singapore, we ordered a medium Half-Boiled Egg Gyudon ($5.90). And since yakitori is one of Singaporean’s favourite, we got a medium Half Boiled Egg Yakitori Bowl ($6.90). After placing our orders through the mobile website, both rice bowls were served in about 5 minutes with the unshelled boiled eggs placed in separate bowls. From the appearance of the dishes, they looked very similar to those served at Yoshinoya. The beef for the gyudon covered the top of the bowl fully while the yakitori only covered 3/4 of the bowl. Before we start our dinner, we broke the cold eggs into each of the bowl.

The taste of Sukiya’s Half-Boiled Egg Guydon was fine and very similar to Yoshinoya’s Gyudon in Singapore. Like its competition’s offering, it fell short of the taste and portion that we had at Yoshinoya in Kyoto and Tokyo, which was richer, more savory and sweet, and with proportionately more meat. While the rice used here was the same Japanese short-grain rice, it was less fluffy and hot as the ones we had in Japan.

As for the Yakitori bowl, the taste was nothing outstanding and very typical of yakitori from Japanese restaurants or even food court stalls. The chunks of chicken served was also visibly too little for the large bowl. Between the guydon and the yakitori bowl, we prefer the prior.

In summary, we had a full dinner though there was nothing amazing. We were slightly disappointed as we thought we could relive the taste of gyudons we had in Japan. We find the taste and offerings at Sukiya similar to that of Yoshinoya in Singapore, with the exception that it comes with table service and complimentary mugi-cha. As such, we would rank Sukiya slightly higher than Yoshinoya in Singapore. We give their food quality a 3.5/5, their value-for-money a 3.5/5, their dining environment a 3.8/5 and service a 3/5.
