We heard that Mizu has a weekend Japanese lunch buffet and decided to give it a try. The place is cozy (read: small) with barely 3 spreads of food. I guess we’re used to seeing extensive buffet spreads at other restaurants. We started out with these fresh oysters, sushi and salmon sashimi (my favorite).
As we soon learnt, what’s not on the spread, you have to order from a buffet list and it will then be served to you. I’m not sure that’s how a buffet would work in the real sense of the word. Anyhow we were checking off the little boxes for tempura and teppanyaki fare.
The shrimp wasn’t fresh so we had to leave it.
The cawan mushi was on the order list and apparently tasted quite good.
The ice cream was good but as you can see, the single scoop is just one mouthful for the guys. We’re pretty sure we ordered more than this but I don’t think they all arrived.
For such a limited selection, it did not come cheap. With the buffet list, it’s all too easy to lose track of what you’ve ordered especially if you go in a large group, and it’s even easier to lose track of the orders that never arrived. We all agreed we got less than we ordered. So I guess it’s a case of “you lose”.
Considering that the restaurant was less than half full, service should’ve been much better. Instead we were constantly having to raise our hands for green tea refills, extra napkins and to ask what happened to our orders. We definitely prefer the buffets where everything is laid out and we get to help ourselves.
