Kiseki, located at the 8th storey of Orchard Central shopping mall, is a pretty good deal. Lunch buffet starts at $19.80++ for weekday and $27.80++ for weekend. With it's extensive selection of good quality food and its prime location at Orchard Road, I must say it is a pretty good deal. Buffet-ing and shopping at Orchard on a weekday definitely sounds pretty cool and it doesn't burnt your pocket :)
For full pricing for lunch, dinner for both adult and children- check out here.
We went on a Sunday afternoon and most seats were taken up. We did make reservations one day earlier and was surprised that we manage to secure a place. Kids below 5 years old eat free so we only paid for 4 adults. Payment is made prior to entry to the restaurant and each customer is stamped with a UV-Visible stamp for re-entrance purpose. We were showed to our seats which overlooks the Orchard Road.
For starters, there are plenty of sashimi, salads and cold soba, prawn to choose from....
Salmon sashimi is really fresh and I see many patrons gobbling down plates and plates of them. I guess this is one of the most worth-it dish so if you are a sashimi lovers, it is definitely worth it for you to come...No limits on the sashimi and it is yummy!
There are also other selection of sashimi and I particularly like the abalone and the squid. The squid is fresh and very creamy. Love how it goes chewy and creamy in the mouth!
Salads, sauces and the Edamame is just next to the sashimi and my girl love the Edamame. After she finishes up her rice, I gave her a bowl of it and she just sit quietly and slowly peeling and savouring the beans.
There are also cold soba, cold cooked prawn and mussels.
For the hot dishes, deep fried mashed pumpkin is a particular hit with my mum. She said it is nice sweet and crispy.
Another dish worth mentioning is their chawanmushi. Each of us had a bowl each including my 2 and 4 years old kiddos. They said very nice!
We tried the hot pot but nothing fantastic.. good if u wanted to have something hot to drink
Their tempura is really good!Batter is very crispy and not too oily so one would not feel too oily after eating them.
Prawn tempura is our favourite as the prawn is really fresh. I do like the sweet potato tempura as well.
Another favourite is Fried Salmon Head but I did not manage to capture a photo of it as the item ran out when I went for my photo taking. Yes, it is THAT POPULAR! My mum and hubby both tried it and give thumbs up!
