Very disappointed with the food. After reading glowing reviews, we went to try the restaurant for lunch today. The rice was undercooked and the pork cutlets were tough and cold. The karage chicken was also deep-fried a very dark colour meaning that the oil prob consisted a lot of residue or used too many times. Overall, it was not worth the hype, overpriced, and we left feeling disappointed. The feedback was passed on to the restaurant when we paid. Will sadly not be returning :( See less

I was on the fence about giving this review, but as I was about to change my mind, I was rushed out the door prematurely despite having dining time of less than 40mins. It used to be really good, very accommodating, staff well trained, they had their game on and knew what they were doing. Since post covid though, the staff lacks attention to detail (one instance where they didnt even bother asking me if I wanted hot or cold latte and just served whatever they wanted), the system has cracks (so does everyone else, but it's been 18 months on the booking system and the kinks still hasnt been ironed out) with bookings up to 2:45pm for a 3pm finish on weekdays, and lately there's been small shifts into non covidsafe practices, like randomly making up a table in the middle of the dining floor for a prebooked table, people taking their masks off etc. The worst of it is that, all this comes with a newly festered dont-care attitude. I say new, because I literally come here every week (see photos) and the scoffing and snark with the service lately is becoming very real. For a weekly patron of 3+ yrs, you'd think the staff would remember you. ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Sure, everyone has lost motivation in the hospitality industry these few years, but as the saying goes, everyone has bad days in the kitchen, but no one goes to work to make a bad day for a patron. And if it's every week, maybe it's time. See less

If you are looking for authentic teishoku set then this place will be the right place to go. This place is specialising in teishoku meal sets which include a main of choice, rice, pickles, soup and dessert. We ordered two different set meals. ๐Ÿฑ What we ordered: - Grilled miso salmon $28 - Chicken katsu $25 Each set came with so many little dishes ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜‹ The food was good and everything is presented beautifully Overall it such a good value and worth to try!

Finally visited for my birthday and i was not disappointed at all! Aside from having to wait for a table despite making a booking, the wait staff were very friendly, polite and helpful. Since it was our first visit, the lovely waiter came to our table to explain how the menu worked and was very thorough with it. ๐Ÿต Iced Matcha Latte had a lovey strong flavour and wasnโ€™t too sweet. ๐Ÿฑ Pork Katsu was so crispy on the outside, tender and juicy on the inside. The pairing dipping sauces (think it was mustard & Kewpie) went very well with the pork! ๐Ÿฃ Assorted Sashimi set consisted of 3 slices each of Salmon and Kingfish Sashimi, 2 cooked prawns and 2 pieces of scallop sashimi. The sashimi served were very fresh and had an amazing texture, enjoyed the scallops especially since they were so sweet and just melted in your mouth. Sides we got: ๐ŸŸ Salmon Sashimi ๐Ÿ† Eggplant Tempura w Miso & Peanut (for the sashimi main) ๐Ÿฅฉ Ox Tongue Curry ๐Ÿฅ’ Cucumber and Moromi Miso ๐Ÿฅ” Potato Salad with Bonito Flakes ๐Ÿฅš Onsen Tamagotchi w Teriyaki Sauce & Avruga Caviar ๐Ÿซ• Miso Soup ๐Ÿš Rice ๐Ÿฐ Figs w Homemade Cream Cheese What stood out to me the most were the eggplant tempura and potato salad! Both executed wonderfully, the eggplant and potato both melted in your mouth! The ox tongue curry was also a top contender, everything else was superb and there wasnโ€™t a thing we did not enjoy. That said, it is around $30-40 per set. Slightly pricier โ€œmealโ€ compared to other brunch spots but honestly so worth it. For the variety of side dishes you get and the quality of food, I would say that Torissong is somewhere everyone should try at least once. Definitely lives up to the hype! ๐Ÿ“ธ Premium Pork Katsu Teishoku, Premium Assorted Sashimi Teikoshu See less

Ordering was a tad slow, but overall the service, food and experience was great. We loved the variety of little dishes on the tray and the uniqueness. Made us reminisce our time back in Japan. Celebrated our anniversary, thank you, all delicious. See less

Taste was mostly good, appearance was pretty good. Waiting time was a bit long for people without booking (30 minutes), not a go-to place if you wanna a fast lunch. Considering its price, when you are paying 45 dollars or so for a sashimi lunch set and a drink(lemon lime bitter) , the fact that they didn't process their prawns properly ( did not clean the sand veins at all, which was full of sand and dirts) is a bit annoying and unexpected. It's a bit unacceptable for the money you are paying. 3/5 See less

Love how you get to taste so many dishes in a set. Especially loved the salmon sashimi, curry and the matcha cake. Only down side I guess is the rice, a bit too watery and sticky, can definitely do better with that. But all in all it still worth going. See less

Nice idea with the Japanese set, had the katsu chicken which was crispy and the premium dish fish wing. Bit expensive but worth it as there's lots going on , sometimes get lost Into what to eat and such small table. See less

โ˜† Bookings are recommended because there is limited seating. โ˜† Staff were very friendly and welcoming during our visit. โ˜† Teishokus were amazing. Plenty of little dishes to try and we left feeling full and satiated. โ˜† Appreciated how their daily menu is uploaded to their website. I was able to have a look at their menu prior to arriving and see which items were unavailable or sold out. โ˜† Would've liked to have been served water in a regular glass instead of a disposable paper cup. But, I understand that this might've been due to the current climate. โ˜† Would definitely return in the future! See less

Great Japanese restaurant that does a set menu known as 'Teishoku'. The variety of dishes you get in the set are great and the price is reasonable too. I'd suggest making a booking in advance because the place gets busy all the time. See less

The food at Torissong was amazing! The presentation brought me back to Japan. Everything was laid out beautifully. We got the miso salmon and pork katsu as the main dish and they both were delicious. The only downside was that the food did take awhile to come out and we only had a set time frame to eat. So when the food eventually came out we had to rush to finish our meal. See less

The place is bright and neat. We love the idea of the set menu. As we don't have to spend time to pick the side dishes. We have ordered ox tongues and grilled miso salmon as the main course. The salmon was average but I absolutely loved the ox tongues. In terms of the side dishes, the eggplant is killer!!! It was so damn tasty. Onsen egg was also pretty outstanding. The dishes came quite quick and the service was friendly and attentive. I wouldn't mind going back and trying out the rest on the menu. See less

Really nice cosy place. Not too noisy and the food is great. Love the idea of set menus and the choose the main. Leaves too many decisions aside and lets you get on with chatting. Sashimi was fresh and delicious. Had the eel which was nicely grilled and fatty. Would definitely come again if in the area. Highly recommended. See less

Had our first dinner post lockdown and the experience was great! We ordered three different set meals and they were all delicious! The set came with rice and many small dishes so it was great to have varieties. The portion was good and we were quite full after. The staff were really friendly and attentive. It's a highly recommended place I'd you like Japanese set meals. See less
