Description: Don & Tori is a modern Japanese restaurant that strips away the traditions of Japanese cuisine and serves Japanese inspired cocktails. Our extensive menu features an innovative list of signature donburi bowls and makis, as well as yakimono (grilled or pan-fried) items and creates a serene Japanese inspired dining enclave in the heart of the Central Business District.

My Wife and I visited Don & Tori and had a wondered into this little fusion Japanese’s joint and found a great restaurant.

The owner is an experience Japanese restauranier with dips is several other Japanese restaurants such as Fat cow, Black cow etc etc.

The wagyu beef bowl rice for $28 sgd is the best value u can find for the quality and taste. Whilst it isn’t the best we have tried, it doesn’t cost between 70-150 in joints like Aoki and tatsuya.

They also have the angel hair pasta with truffle oil and caviar but we recommend to skip this and concentrate on other fusion treats. Overall we highly recommend this place as it is great value for money and the taste is exquisite. Sit at the bar and talk to the Chef for a more personal touch .

Disappointing experience. Very overrated on Tripadvisor.

Kind waitress but average service.

Quality of food just ok. Overpriced for what it is. Average quality of ingredients. Trying to meet high standards but highly failed. If half price maybe a good deal.

At current price there are too many Japanese restaurants in town at much higher level.

One might miss the restaurant if not for the unit number and the small signboard by the door
Dining at Don and Tori is worth the calories and the money well spent. Am amazed by their cooked donburi, with the meat served being juicy,succulent and rich in flavour. The service staff were friendly and attentive and did their best to ensure that the dining experience os comfortble.
Jason,the manager, was attentitive to the guest and ensure that the dining experienced was comfortable and delicious.

I went for a lunch with business associates.
The food was great! We had Sashimi, Truffle Wagyu Bowl (Must try) and dessert. The Foie gras and wagyu bowl were superb and the sashimi was fresh, and well plated.

My only issue was the table service, which kept pushing to clear our plates. I felt a bit of pressure to eat quickly.

Other than that, come for the good food!

The ambience was really great and the service team was top of everything. The chefs were spectacular, and you can see the dedication to their craft. Not just in how they prepare the food, but in the taste and presentation too!
The price point is really quite good given that the seafood is flown in and is indeed superbly fresh.
I have many recommendations but to be honest, just ask the Chef for what’s fresh. Or ask any one of the service staff for recommendations. The salmon capriccio was so decadent. The sashimi top notch and I also recommend their wagyu beef don!!
