And now for the Assorted Deep Fried Items which were all very well fried to a golden brown hue. The Soft Shell Crab was wonderfully crispy yet minus that greasy feeling when you eat it fresh from the wok. The Squid Skewers were equally crispy and tasty without being overly chewy.

The Kaki Fried (Deep Fried Oysters) was worth a mention because it was well fried and tasty according to my colleague who was supposed to be allergy to the raw molluscs. Ended up he went to bomb the toilet bowl again after the meal.

Gyoza - The filling was decent enough, nothing fanciful either though my colleague seem to enjoy it.

Another one of my colleague's order was these Pumpkin Croquettes of which I took a small bite. The croquette sported a crispy shell, but pumpkin is not my kind of vegetable.

Teriyaki Chicken Salad - Charred outside but the chicken was a tad undercooked and was still pink inside. Just a small bowl of veggies which the three of us quickly polished it off.

We were near to our limit so I asked for a small portion of this Pork Belly Shioyaki. Tasted just like the Pork Belly Skewer but with some sauce over it.

Tori Momo or Grilled Chicken Thigh was juicy if not a little on the bland side. Some sauce or a longer period of marinate would have improved on its appeal.

Teba Karaage - This Deep Fried Chicken Wing was one of the best I have eaten; flavourful crispy skin with a wonderful sesame fragrant and tender juicy meat inside. Oishii de!!!

The soup base for the Lobster Soup was miso which was too pronounced. Other than that Boston lobster claw, there was hardly if any lobster sweetness in the soup. Unless you enjoyed the taste of miso, I suggest you skip ordering this.

Time to bring out the Cut Fruits and Ice Creams. For ice cream, they only have the green tea flavour topped with red bean. On my first trip, they were only two types of fruit while my second visit had honeydew, rock melon and watermelon.

Classic Buffet's Bill - If you can do without some of the dishes like the scallop sashimi, eel, ikura sushi or even the seasonal item, then by all means that the cheaper option which cost S$52.85, a good S$23.55 cheaper.

Premium Buffet's Bill - After adding in the 10% service charge and 7% GST, each of us ended up paying S$76.40.

Kushi Japanese Dining Bar is one of the better Japanese ala carte buffet place featuring a nice menu selections. With a cosier and spacious new location, it's now more accessible to most of us since the Novena MRT is just a stone's throw away. For the premium buffet, we weren't really impressed with the season item offered like the fishy red snapper. The Ultra King Prawn Tempura also lack the freshness as was the sweet shrimp. Plus point was the thick cuts of the sashimi which was the main reason we were there for. Service wise, the wait staffs were prompt and efficient in clearing the empty plates and topping up our drinks.
