Renowned for its premium grilled Wagyu Beef and value-for-money buffets, Tenkaichi Japanese BBQ Restaurant offers an authentic Japanese yakiniku experience.

At Tenkaichi’s Deluxe and Premium Yakiniku Buffets, you get free flow of Wagyu beef sourced from different parts of the world: Kagoshima, Hokkaido, US, and Australia.

It offers high-quality premium Japan Kagoshima Wagyu, and you can be assured that the Wagyu is graded no less than a marbling score of 7+.

Aside from the famed Kagoshima and Hokkaido Wagyu, it offers a range of sashimi (octopus, tuna, sea bream, salmon, yellowtail, mackerel, Wagyu beef), beef (ox tongue, beef belly, striploin), pork (cheek fillet, smoked belly, collar, loin, belly), chicken (boneless leg, wing), seafood (local spicy fish cake, salmon, prawn, squid, capelin fish, sea bream, mackerel).

Go for the Premium Buffet with Wagyu Beef to also enjoy premium seafood like Hokkaido Jumbo Oyster, Giant Scallop, and White Tuna.

It also includes the famed Kuro Buta Kaburi (Black Pork Belly) known for its tenderness, Lamb Nakaochi (lamb intercostal), and special cuts of Wagyu (ox tongue, short rib, beef rib intercostal, beef rib eye cap, and mixed beef & pork patty).

Good news if you are near town: Tenkaichi has just opened a new outlet at Orchard Cineleisure.

The Deluxe BBQ Buffet includes free flow sashimi, premium beef, pork (pork belly, loin, collar and even cheek fillet), seafood such as prawn.

The Premium BBQ Buffet’s highlight is the offering of Wagyu Tataki, Karubi (short rib), Rosu (rib eye cap), Yukke (marinated wagyu beef), Ox Tongue, Hotate and Sashimi.

What I liked about it was the items are served to you ala-carte style in small dishes, so you can dine in comfort, and the group is able to try quite a sizable variety.

I particularly enjoyed the freshness of the Wagyu Karubi and Ton Toro.

While the pork cheek fillet could be slightly tough (so note not to overcook the slices), they were evenly marinated and tasty.

Fortunately, the restaurant did not go over on the seasoning so you can still taste the naturalness of the meats.

And the wagyu are only sliced when an order is placed.

The Wagyu Beef Yukke came with an egg yolk.

Yes, you have it raw, and mixed, and surprisingly was more delicious than disgusting – you just need to get across any possible psychological barrier.

Tenkaichi’s owner and head chef was once from Japan’s high-end Yakiniku restaurant Jojoen at Roppongi, and eventually stepped out to helm his own.

On the other side of the restaurant is a cooked food section where you can gather items of Japanese fried rice and noodles, sushi, tempura, soba noodles and cooked meat dishes to complement the BBQ food.

The food could have turned cold later in the day because they were placed directly under the air-con, but rest assured they are all freshly prepared daily.

To be truthful, I had my reservations about Tenkaichi initially as it is relatively “unknown” and not that full during dinner times.

If you are willing to look beyond that, the type, variety and quality of foods provided can be well-worth the money.

It is not all the time you can get buffet with wagyu at that price, with a guarantee.

Hope to win this giveaway so I can bring my bf that is currently suffering from food poisoning to eat some good food when he recover. It pains my heart when he had vomited more than 10 times and have to be admitted to hospital. I really hope winning this will cheers him up as he always love to feast on beef. Lastly, Merry Xmas to you Daniel! 😀
