The food is still quite okay but I think the standard has dropped. Still good though.

The service, on the other hand, is atrocious. There was this one person who didn't have a name tag... either that she was a trainee or just plain sloppy. What gives? She served us a common plate of salad without side plates. When we asked for them, she annoyingly said "there..." pointing at the salad sauce... which wasn't even the point.

Food is still rather on-point but service was disappointing. It seems that they were short on staff and a request had to be made multiple times before it comes to us. Overall, still a satisfactory visit.

The reservation was hassle free. Food was quite uo to standard and based on the pricing, it was quite worth based on the portion.

I am a katsu lover and I know where to find good katsu in Singapore. Saboten is definitely one of the best restaurants serving great katsu! Whenever I am in T1, I would definitely visit Saboten cos I love the Katsu-don where the fried pork cutlet was very soft and fresh and crispy, totally melt in the mouth! The queue was always quite long though, but it is worth the queue! The price is slightly high, but I am ok with it cos it is very difficult to find good Katsu in Singapore. So if you are a Katsu lover, please visit this restaurant!
