Watami Japanese Casual Restaurant is located in the ION Orchard shopping mall on the corner of Orchard Rd and Scotts Rd Singapore, across from the Marriott Hotel. Watami Japanese is a very casual dining restaurant with reasonable prices, a good place for a bite to eat while out shopping on Orchard Rd. Watami Japanese Restaurants serves a great range of Japanese food including Tempura, Takoyaki, Japanese hot pots, okonomyaki, noodle soups, salads, grilled meat skewers, rice dishes, stone pot rice dishes, ramen and have a good range of desserts. They have an extensive drinks menu with fresh fruit juices, alcolohic drinks like cocktails, sake and shochu. Watami gets very busy so they have a ticketing machine at the front of the restaurant, just press the number of people you have any then they call out the ticket number when your table is ready.
Food is fairly average at Watami. The sushi rice was dry and a bit undercooked, no seasoning or flavour. The Tonkatsu was quite tasty but the dish was quite small. I went in for lunch at 2.30pm and it was not until 3pm before I got my food. A bit busy there to have a quick lunch. You wait to get a table, then wait for someone to take your order, then wait wait wait for you food. They brought out my tonkatsu first. As I was finishing that they brought the sushi. I had to reminded them then that I had ordered some tea which the girl went and got straight away. Then when they brought my bill there was 2 other items on my bill which I had not ordered adding another $48. It took a few minutes for them to fix this and bring the correct bill.
