The Place Located along Teck Chye Terrace in Serangoon, Kaiyo Sushi & Grill is relatively under the radar even though it has been opened for close to 10 months. This stretch of shophouse has quite a number of restaurants, including Two Bakers. Kaiyo is a casual Japanese restaurant with a casual and open setting, as I managed to check out the space while I collected my orders during the circuit breaker period.
The Food The restaurant is helmed by an experience Japanese chef and the menu is extensive. There are various options for Sashimi, Chirashi bowls, Nigiri Sushi and a variety of robatayaki and fried dishes.
For their takeaway menu this CB period, I had the Chirashi Don (S$22) and it also comes with a complimentary Chawanmushi and Miso Soup. For the price, the portion is good value and I find that the quality of the sashimi here is fresh, to say the least. Good value to satisfy that Chirashi Don craving, and there is frankly not many good Japanese food options in the North-East of Singapore.
I also ordered the mix Sushi Set (S$28), a decent mix of different types of sushi. It may be the journey back, but some of the sushi pieces are not wrapped very nicely and fell apart by the time I had it at home. Quality is decent, and I do hope that the dine-in presentation is much better.
There is also a promotion where you can top up S$5 for a 5 piece mixed sashimi set, so I couldn’t resist having this add-on as well.
Rants Standard Japanese fares on the menu with no notable stand out dishes. Parking lots along Teck Chye Terrace is limited as well.
Will I Return Again? A decent casual Japanese restaurant not part of any big chain in Serangoon which is hard to come by in this part of Singapore. For the price, the quality of what I had at home is decent and I do want to give it a try at the restaurant itself once dine-in is possible again.
