We went for the sushi kaiseki dinner menu. The food was of high quality and very tasty. Unfortunately, the service was very disappointing. We were seated in front of the entrance, ask for different table but we were told that it was not possible. Even...though a table for 2 was vacant the entire evening at the window-side. There is a certain flow to eating a kaiseki, but at this restaurant, the courses were extremely quickly served. The next course was served even though we weren’t finished with the one before that, so you will feel very rushed and the plates were just simply lined up with no explanation. The dirty plates were not removed in time for the next course. The dessert was an anticlimax to the kaiseki experience, as you were served a strawberry, one cherry and some honey melon. The strawberry was surprisingly unripe. In summary the restaurant has a beautiful aesthetic, wonderful sashimi, sushi and tempura. But unfortunately for the chef, the serving staff doesn’t complement his level of culinary skills. Was it worth 220 sgd pp? We are so sorry to conclude: definitely not.More

Our older folks loved the entire Japanese garden that the restaurant was within... the wholesome tranquility the koi ponds and zen garden simply puts you in a good mood and sets you up to enjoy the amazing Japanese food in the restaurant. While their Kaiseki...and Bento kept us in awe of how intricate each item was designed and delicately seasoned, the highlight of our meal was still the A5 Japanese Wagyu - one of the best we had with its thick yet thoroughly tender cut. Our little connoisseur chomped down half of that juicy steak in a flash, while the rest of us adults had to slowly saveur the remaining... Their air flown rock melon sealed our Japanese experience with a sweet ending.More

Decided to celebrate daughter's birthday with weekend brunch at Keyaki. Hadn't visited the restaurant in years so was bowled over by the entrance and walkway to the restaurant. Styled like a traditional Japanese ryokan almost, the restaurant comprises of 3 segregated areas in a single...storeyed building marked by beautiful wooden beams and pillared walkways. The building is set in a typical Japanese Zen rock garden with thriving greenery. A meandering stream and mini waterfall filled with koi, greet you as you approach the entrance. The pleasure this entrance engendered was further heightened by the attentive service we received from Joseph and Jeff, the wait staff assigned to our table. We had a total of 5 courses in kaiseki style. They were delicious and beautifully plated - appetisers of assorted vegetables, sashimi, your choice of agemono ( I chose a mouth-melting codfish), teppanyaki beef ( tender and flavourful) followed by garlic fried rice. These were all of the exacting standard we would expect of Keyaki! For me, the surprising highlight was the delicate houjicha pudding. The consistency was so on point and not cloyingly sweet! What a nice way to end the meal! Brunch at Keyaki is conducted in an unhurried way, with adequate time in between courses to chat and enjoy the impeccable decor. So please do not expect hurlyburly service! Our party was also happily surprised by Joseph serving my daughter a slice of red velvet cake for her birthday after our meal! What a thoughtful and gracious gesture by the restaurant! And the cake was delicious too by the way! To cap off our brunch, we took a turn around the well-appointed garden. Just for those few moments, we felt transported to Japan again! Indeed, Keyaki is an entire experience in itself - from the ambience, the wonderful staff ( both senior and junior) and the traditional cuisine offered. Highly recommended!More

Had a wonderful experience with Chef Tommy Yeo and server Suresh that attended to us. Had actually made a reservation asking about birthday cakes but didn't get a reply, was a little disappointed and had intended to do all means to get a cake even...if I were to purchase it from the hotel as they do not allow outside cakes to be brought in. Thankfully Suresh helped us so that I could actually celebrate my mom's birthday! Service by Chef Tommy was really fantastic, the little conversations he had with us made my family laugh and at the same times the dishes prepared were fantastic. If you are not keen on garlic fried rice, do let the chef know and alternatives could also be provided. All the small details and service really made the experience I had here unforgettable. Totally worth the price and definitely coming back here for another fantastic experience!More

My family and I celebrated my nephew's second birthday at Keyaki restaurant on 18 July! It was our first time there and the ambience was great. We were extremely lucky to be seated where Chef Eric was stationed that day and were treated to an...entertaining conversation and delectable teppanyaki meal. We particularly enjoyed his special garlic fried rice, wagyu and scallops. The service was top notch and the staff even helped to retrieve our cake from the hotel room service promptly. Thanks Keyaki team for making our family time so memorable. Will be back soon!More

My teppanyaki dining experience at Keyaki with my family last week was a splendid one! We all had dinner sets which were prepared beautifully and with great expertise in front of us by Chef Eric. I particularly loved the lobster with golden sauce, the wagyu...beef as well as the fried rice; they were cooked to perfection, so fresh and full of flavour! The experience left us satisfied and impressed - thank you Keyaki and Chef Eric!More

Visited Keyaki for their teppanyaki dinner course and was absolutely satisfied with the service and food. Chef Eric Yong was our teppanyaki chef and he displayed professionalism and executed each and every dish with finesse. He cooked the lobster and wagyu beef so well that...the quality of the meat was accentuated due to his excellent gauge of doneness. Everything was delicious and we would definitely be back. Thank you chef Eric!More

Food was excellent and not overated. We are served by Chef Eric very entertaining and passionate , at first he is not talking because he is really busy on his cooking. Wan is our server helped us with our sake and wine orders. We are...very comfortable at Keyaki Restaurant and planning to visit again for sure. The Wagyu Sirloin perfectly cooked with wagyu rice ( no saude needed) its good on its own. We order the multi course and the Foie Grass. We want to order more but Wan help us to enjoy the rest of the food first lucky we listened. Because we are too full , they gave us complimentary cake coz we are celebrating Anniversary. Best experience in Singapore for a long time. We found a restaurant that we can recommend with our friends and family. Look for Wan or Chef Eric if you plan to visit.More

As your records will show, we have dined, celebrated special occasions at the teppanyaki counter at Keyaki many many times over many years. The food and service have always been great! However, this time around the restaurant declined to offer us seats at the teppanyaki...counter which apparently are now reserved for prix fixe diners. So the food was served at the main dining room. Why does Keyaki bother to have an extensive ala carte teppanyaki menu then? Also our ala carte spends have always far exceeded prix fixe prices. We had the most horrendous and embarrassing dining experience. We had brought our friends to Keyaki to celebrate our friend's birthday. Our friends were left speechless during and after the meal. The food arrived all at once with no respect for the teppanyaki dining sequence and traditions, was served stone cold (the beef in particular was COLD, DRY & HARD not the sizzling, melt in the mouth beef that we are used to), zero teppanyaki presentation, not served on individual plates as would be at the teppanyaki counter and the restaurant did not even set our table - presumably expecting us to have a communal dinner like in a Chinese restaurant! Disgraceful for a food court - let alone for a restaurant which brands itself as a top, fine dining gastronomical Japanese restaurant in Singapore. Will never again have teppanyaki at this restaurant unless they offer us a seat at the teppanyaki counter. Suggest you do not either.More

The food and service go hand in hand to make a restaurant excellent, and I think Keyaki scores a solid 5/5 on both these fronts. The ambience is excellent, you feel as if you’ve stepped into a quaint Japanese village, and the service - wow!...We were served by Jeff; we’ve never had a more impressionable host… He was just so good with food and wine suggestions, explaining everything to kids and us with detail and a smile on his face… the food was par excellence, with everything from presentation, temperature and taste being optimum. I would definitely look forward to revisiting and highly recommend this place to everyoneMore

We held our wedding at Keyaki Garden Pavilion recently (solemnisation ceremony followed by an intimate sit-down multi-course Japanese fine dining meal for our 20+ guests). The food was fantastic and all our guests were happy with the quality of the food. Prior to our wedding...day, we were assisted by restaurant manager Vincent on the administrative arrangements and on the actual day, Wan and Joseph took care of our guests very well. They made all the necessary arrangements for our tea ceremony which was held after the solemnisation ceremony, so we never once had to worry about anything. We would definitely return to Keyaki in future to try their other menu options or to celebrate any special occasion :)More
