Highly recommend this restaurant. We had no idea what to expect coming here and were very pleasantly surprised by the exceptional service and the high quality of the food. I had the Rice and Noodle Bowl with Chicken and Crack Salad. What a delicious combo. Worth visiting, I will be back often.

I've now had two incredible experiences at Torafuku. The menu is creative and made with love and the service was lovely both times. I will definitely be coming back!

The food was interesting fusion. What I wanted to mention about is the restaurant’s service. Especially it is about the wrong bill. After my friend paid the whole meal, another friend noticed our friend paid more about 90 dollars than the bill which we supposed to pay. I feel it is very unfortunate that we had to call and ask the payment that we made was right or not. The server returned and gave the differences back. But they seemed not really bothered, nor apologetic gestures much. It wasn’t really appreciated experiences after the meal.

There was a good selection of vegetarian dishes. As for the seating we were sitting on backless stools that were hard and not very comfortable. At the time we were seated the booths were not available. Perhaps specify that you want a booth at the time of reservation.

The experience I dined for was the Dineout Menu at Torafuku. The first course was a delightfully light steamed bun with wonderfully paired sweet soy butter. For The second course we selected the Apple and Beetroot salad that can only be described as sour and uninteresting although the toasted walnuts helped. The next course was the duck confit which was stripped off pieces of duck that were strewn about a salad of extremely bitter vegetables. The duck itself was crispy like jerky and was dry with no moisture. The main course we had the lingcod in which the fish had a marvellous sear and there was a generous portion for two people. However, the green sauce at the bottom did not complement the delicate fish as it was overwhelmingly earthy and somewhat bitter due to the collard greens and mushrooms. Lastly, for the deserts the black sesame tart was hard as rock and had clearly been pre-made and left in the fridge for too long. The “black sesame” whipped cream on top was deflated and had no sweetener added to it with flecks that looked like ground black sesame. The other calamansi meringue tart was good but felt like it could have been better coming from a restaurant such as Torafuku. This menu was not their best work and I implore you to dine a la carte here as there are better menu options that you can enjoy here.

We had a fabulous meal at Torafuku. The Wagyu beef bowl was particularly good. We got the cheesecake dessert-it was a very generous serving and was the perfect way to finish off a spicy meal. Wine and beer were very well priced and the service was attentive. I don't love the minimalist decor at Torafuku. It can seem a bit sterile and unwelcoming, but the food was amazing and I cannot wait to go back.

We had a great time, it was easy to get a reservation and the staff were very accommodating.

This is still one of my favorite restaurant fit outs. Not only is the space beautiful but it was relatively quiet!

Food was on point, we had the set menu and thought the amount and quality of food was great value.

GREAT food! Delicious, fair portion, and a creative twist between the east and west! Service was prompt. We had to ask for a table instead of sitting at a bench table with stools (my husband has a bad back) and we were quickly accommodated. Overall a very positive experience. Will return!

Our date night at Torafuku was a wonderful dining experience from beginning to end. The food was bursting with flavour and the presentation made us feel like we were in a world class gourmet restaurant while the staff made us feel like we were guests in a family home. We're looking forward to visiting again soon!
