Sun with Moon is a pretty cool name for a restaurant, Sun with Moon @ Central is the second outlet, with its sister outlet @ Wheelock place, and Japanese Dining Sun. The name of the restaurant may implies that they offers everything under the Sun – and the Moon. Indulge in the pleasure of superb Japanese dining as the welcome breeze greets you at Sun with Moon @ Central. Charming at day and stunning at night, the outlet at Central located on the ground floor facing the Singapore river, offers diner a full view of the river with its clear glass walls and mirrors.
The set lunch menu is acknowledged to be value for money considering the fact that the same items for set lunch are cheaper than dinner (no set dinner menu). The food at the restaurant is not expensive, with $12 (cheapest) for a set lunch, but the serving is not really big, so for big-eaters a set lunch may not suffice. Nevertheless, like its sister restaurant, Sun with Moon @ Wheelock, the menu at Sun with Moon @ Central features a selection of both traditional and modern Japanese dishes, and stays true to their philosophy of using only the finest ingredients for their culinary creations.
Went for lunch on fine sunday afternoon for cousins gathering. The set lunch menu starts from 12 noon and end at 230pm, from 230pm to 630pm, they offer the cafe menu which has considerately less main course, and mostly are desserts, cocktails, mocktails, flavoured beers, fine wines and premium sake.
Tonkatsu & potato salad ($13.50). Tonkatsu in the hands of less competent chef could become too dry and hard, but the one at Sun is done just nicely, cripsy and not too dry. Coupled with the sauce, the first bite of the meat makes you want to finish it all.
I always like a well-balanced meal, so the salad do well eating together with the Tonkatsu.
Chicken Teriyaki & California roll set ($14.80), all the lunch set meal here also comes with pickled vege, soup and tea/coffee. Like the one at Wheelock, chicken teriyaki place on hot plate was simply good.
The california roll which comes with the Chicken Teriyaki is really yummy, i was really tempted to order a separate plate at $10.50
Saba & Oden ($12.50) rice with grilled mackerel. The fish was quite tasty, but the complaint is too many small bones which makes it difficult to eat.
The side that comes with the mackerel, has egg & fish cake and some other food that we don’t know and also no courage to try
Mini tori chicken set ($9.30) – rice with chicken cooked in the pot which you have to time with a sand hour glass, stir upon time’s up. Looks quite good, but the serving a tad too small.
Sun with Moon may not offer fine-dining, but as a casual and fun dining experience, it works for me. Having been to both branches, personally i feel that Sun with Moon @ Wheelock warms up to me more. Reason being i feel that i at more comfortable at Wheelock than at Central. Not that the one at Central is not good, it’s just the feel you know? Despite that, Sun with Moon @ Central, you have the river view thrown in as a bonus. Total bill is $49.65 for four person after discount. I used the 15% discount coupon given to me during my last visit to Sun with Moon @ Wheelock. Ladyironchef still rates Sun with Moon @ Central five stars because i like the modern yet traditional decorations, and the effort in presenting the food to diners.
