Himawari Japanese Restaurant

A small and cosy restaurant situated opposite the gym at safra mount faber, a la carte buffet is at $28.80++ for weekdays lunch, i forgotten to check out the weekend prices. the price they have on the website is outdated you gotta add a couple dollars to the published price.

Not all the items in the menu are good, but you gotta try the beef tenderloin, it was cooked just nicely, the meat was juicy and tender with sweet teriyaki sauce, some might think the sauce is a little too sweet, but i like it. they have the chicken version of this too, but the chicken was overcooked, very hard.
Sashimi was good too, the fish was fresh, look at the salmon (my favourite sashimi fish). i love to eat lots and lots of sashimi when i go for jap buffet, cos it's usually very expensive to order them a la carte.
The buffet here also includes shabu shabu, with a choice of beef or/and chicken, i suggest that you take the beef, cos the chicken is cut in such large pieces that they looked very unappetising after it's cooked. initially, i thought there will be more variety of food for the shabu shabu, quite dissappointing.

The place was quiet and it's a good place to go if you are not in a rush for time, can eat and chat at the same time, waitresses are friendly but some of them cannot really understand english well, hhmmm, maybe they are trained in japanese, haha. Generally we had an enjoyable lunch at himawari.
