“Marked improvement in service”
Review of Saboten

Saboten
Ranked #1,057 of 12,072 Restaurants in Singapore
Cuisines: Japanese
Restaurant details
Reviewed 15 December 2017

Location - Conveniently located on the 2nd floor of Changi Airport Terminal 1

Food - Saboten as a whole serves very decent Tonkatsu and I like how the shredded cabbage is free flow. Set meals come with green tea and a scoop of green tea ice cream to end off (+$1 to change to yuzu ice cream).

Service - Big improvement as compared to my prior visits. Previously the place seemed understaffed and a few of the staff didn't seem too interested in their job. Now, service staff are attentive and friendly. Keep up the good work!

I love the concept where you can have free flow of vegetables and rice if you ordered a set meal. The restaurant seemed shorthanded during our visit as we had some difficulties in getting help but the service level was still very good afterall.

The tonkatsu is done perfectly. Free flow of rice and cabbage.
Unfortunately, the place is under staff - service a bit slow.

Having been to Saboten multiple times in the past, this is the first time I left a review... The meal kicks off with free-flow sliced lettuce that you can generously top with sesame sauce. It's delicious and filling but remember to leave space for the food you ordered.

The different dishes never disappoint with fluffy Japanese rice and crispy but moist on the inside pork cutlets. Adding $3, you can have curry sauce too which is always a must. They also provide sesame that you grind yourself and the fragrance of it really enhances your food.

My favourite part of the meal would be the green tea ice cream at the end. Probably the only place that I actually enjoy green tea ice cream...

The restaurant is located in T1. Staff is friendly however they do need put in more effort to be attentive. The food is good. Good size serving.
