My mom and I ate there on a Saturday. They have the buffet lunch for 2688++. If you want drinks, you add 688++. Not sure if they still offer that.

You pay for the quality. There are a lot of japanese buffet that serves sashimi (even as low as 1k per pax), but not all are fresh. We have sensitive stomach, and this buffet just fits us. If you are used to the Philippine version of japanese food (very salty & full of vetsin), then this isn't for you.

You can have seafood or meat grilled, but have them grill it earlier. My grilled shrimp took almost half an hour before it was served to me. Don't miss the tiger prawns. We weren't able to try the chahan and stir fry veggies because we were already full.

Desserts were okay. We love the mochi, it was home made. The crepe I didn't like so much (I got used to Cafe breton's crepe, and nothing can match that). Ice cream is very delicious, especially the green tea flavor.

Service was excellent which is expected for the price of dining here. The interior design was awesome. So clean and calming. The wood and dark-colored seats anchor the space. I especially love the red bromeliads that complement the dining tables. The chopsticks holders were chosen with care (stone with jade design) and everything just reeked with "meticulous excellence." Naturally, my expectations of the food went up a notch.

I had the salmon sashimi, the uni sushi, and the black tiger prawns teppanyaki. The first two were perfect. The presentation of the teppanyaki was beautiful (failed to take a picture because my toddler was fiddling with my phone). However, the prawn itself, while tasty, was overcooked. I know because I struggled to get a bite out of the thing. Tsk-tsk. Sad. What a waste of a tiger prawn (three tiger prawns! )... The mushrooms (shiitake and bamboo) were excellent with perfect seasoning. The zucchini lacked seasoning but the sesame dip provided really went well with the entire dish. There was another dip (on the soy side) and a spicy dip but I prefer the sesame. For close to Php900, the prawn could have been worth it if cooked correctly.

Wasabe here is scraped from the rootcrop itself which makes the Wasabe more pliant and smoother to the palette. The harder or faster they scrape, the spicier the Wasabe becomes. Interesting...

The GenMacha was expectedly wonderful.

My photo shows two scoops of green tea ice cream. The ice cream itself is so-so. I was looking for the "tea kick" in it (the slight bitterness traditional Japanese green tea ice cream normally has). It was on the sweet side. The red bean paste made it extremely sweet. The accompanying caramelized sugar cookie with black and white sesame seeds was extremely sweet.

My mother was pleased with her cold soba and tempura. My father was pleased with his lobster soup (included all the evil fat!), hamachi panga (last piece left in the resto..lucky guy)...

So, not a 5-star experience, but a good place to come back to, if sky's the limit on your budget. For four people, we spent about Php1500-2000 per head.

Most of their ingredients here including seafoods, meats and veggies all came directly from Japan. All meat products are never frozen and are kept in chillers until they are ready to cook. This means that they only order enough meat and fish that can be consumed on a certain time frame. Even their veggies are imported and only the finest ingredients used

Well, not your oridinary Japanese resto cause this ones authentic. A bit pricey but the food was good! Although, the lamb chops are really hard to chew but other food served was great especially the lobster! Yum! Sashimi and maki are their bestseller! Servers were accomodating and fast. 128522

Ambiance is great for Japanese fine dining. Foods look and taste great. A bit pricey though. Servers are friendly and accommodating.

Love is sweeter the second time around? I absolutely LOVE Jap food so I gave Yakumi another try. This time, we were given the "set meal" Lol. Can't complain! Pictured above was the starter--Miso soup, Salad (with I have no idea what dressing, but I could taste peanut sauce) and a Assorted sashimi:) It was good! (Miso had a party. I think there was real crab meat inside.)

For my main, I got their (sheesh, forgive me for forgetting the name) braised US pork. It was soft and it slid down easily, a little on the sweet side but I liked it.

Dessert was pudding and sorbet. :) I only had a taste of each.

Can't wait for my next Yakumi surprise.

This place has been on my Must Try list eversince I first set foot on Solaire. Can you imagine my delight when my dad surprised me (and my mom and aunts) with a Yakumi dinner?!

I entered the place and was in awe. We were greeted and seated at a table where we can see the teppanyaki chefs. Medyo nalula lang talaga ako sa prices, and I was expecting so much!

My dad got a Chashu Ramen. Mom and Aunts shared their Beef Teppan, Pampano and California Maki. We all shared the Salmon and Spanish Mackarel Sashimis, Golden Dragon, Bonga Bonga, and the Spider Maki Sushis.

Really, nothing special. I dunno if their Salmon was supposed to be more special because it wasn't the melt-in-the-mouth type, so I didn't quite appreciate it. The Mackarel was too dry. Not sure if it's supposed to be like that, too. :( The sushis were just normal, and not Wow. I mean, for the price? I was expecting SO MUCH MORE.

Service was excellent. But totally not worth our 10k bill. I mean I can totally get a better-tasting sushi/sashimi fix at 3k+ somewhere else. :(

Yakumi Restaurant is located inside Solaire. Since I've been eating ramen that week, I decided to order their lambchops. And yes, it was really good that we ordered their wagyu rice for a "happy tummy" feel. :)
