In Japanese mythology, a Tanuki is a shapeshifting prankster, a playful creature with a big heart. We believe dining out should be a fun experience, serving up dishes that make you amused, inquisitive, and, most of all, happy. We love everything Japanese, but we also love the fun of modern American street food, so we did what we wanted to do... put them together for creations that are unique and unbelievably flavorful.
No Cake, Weiling Sad.
My friends and I went for lunch, served by warm hospitality from EJ and his team. Service was prompt with appropriate dose of humour. Service team asked for feedback of food and drinks, and tried to see if there was anything needed to enhance our dining experience. Overall experience - fantastic.
Give a surprise birthday cake at short notice and on the house. Thank you!
Everything’s great. Thank you!
waiters were rly friendly and card for reservation was rly cute LOL
Thank you for the little note, we enjoyed our dinner :)
I loved the ambience, food and the amazing service that the employee provided! The birthday celebration for my friend went really well and we all enjoyed the food. One of the Male employee also kindly sang the happy birthday song together with us for my friend! Would definitely visit again :)
We are back again for the food and wine.Just love the fresh food and excellent service from staff at Jewel outlet. Will visit again and again and again
Had a very enjoyable experience. The only minor gripe that i had was that the air conditioning in jewel was a little warm.
I love the convenience of booking a table for my family. The food served are great in taste and value. I will definitely come again. Thank you for the service.
A very nice restaurant to chill with friends in Jewel Changi.
I love the ambience! It's really nice to just sit there. I also thought the social distancing measures were done quite well and there was enough space between tables, leaving a table between each occupied one empty! Made me feel safer. Food was good too! And the staff were helpful and nice!
We had a better experience last month - servers were more attentive about our water and wine refills, oysters were bigger.
Overall experience was great...made reservations and promptly arranged...truffle wagyu with foie gras was a bit disappointing...didn't know the beef would b those shabu shabu thin slice, was expecting thicker cut to feel the texture...foie gras was pan fried nicely but if a littlw more flavour thru pepper n salt, would be better...oysters were very fresh, always enjoyed tt...
warm and welcoming staff and tasty food
Excellent service from the time I make reservation to leaving the restaurant. Staff are very friendly and jovial. Hope to see more selections on menu for people like me who do not eat oysters.
Happy hour cocktails came with a huge block of ice so the drink was more ice than cocktail. So the cocktail just tasted like flavoured soda. Think might be a better idea to choose beer or wine instead of the cocktails.
would definitely come back for a meal again.
The wait staff who attended to us and got us a table at the entrance of Taniku Raw was particularly helpful and pleasant in demeanour. Overall, a positive experience !
everything was great except i’m pretty sure the serving sizes got smaller while the price stayed the same... it’s really quite expensive
Great experience, especially one of the servers who proactively volunteered to bring out cake/pie for our friends birthday celebration.
A good place for TGIF! Will be back for more.
The food are good and of good quality. Very good experience as your staffs had been very helpful and nice, which makes our dining very pleasant. Thank you.
Bowls were hard to consume from but overall really good ambience for hang outs!!
Great ambience, but gets hot with the noon sun during lunch. Reckon it'll be lovely for dinner though. Place wasn't crowded but service was slow.
Made the reservation for 8pm, but the lady rudely told us that our reservation was for 7.30pm. Not sure where the confusion arose from, but the lady was not too nice about it.
Enjoyed the beef bowl with foie gras and truffle. Realised they had happy hour and tried their cocktails which was nice. While we were having beer, cocktails and spritz, Robert the bartender made us a delicious southside and a new cocktail he was experimenting with milk oolong tea and raspberry shrub. Really good stuff! Thanks to his attentiveness and hospitality we left having had a memorable experience at Tanuki Raw.
Ambiance was great. Visited both outlets in Orchard and Bugis. Service is far from expected at Jewel with only 2 service staff & a bartender managing the whole floor during lunch on a Monday (PH, for most). Staff looks stressful and no smile included.
Portion can be slightly bigger for the same price paid? Thank you.
Service could have been better. I know that they are busy but that is a norm for their trade and their line of work.
It was very easy and convenient to make reservation. Service and food were good. However I think if they were to improve the seats and tables will be better. With current safe distancing measures, their previous seating arrangements are not comfortable.
Good ambience and delicious food. The only feedback is staff to improve their customer service and proactive ness. Staff could have shown more courteousy and friendly towards customers. Booking was for 3 pax but every set comes in 2 set of utensils.
Food and drinks not the same standard as the outlet at orchard central.
Service was rather slow, had to indicate to 3 staff before one of them had the urgency to promptly pass us our check.
Entire Oysters batch were bad and had to refund and stop serving/sell oysters
Great food, good service but only realized after I left that I wasn't being served one of the items that I ordered which I had already paid for in the total bill, so if only the waiters would have checked that everything that the customer ordered had all been served that would've been great.
Food was good, with nice happy hour deal. Oysters are okay for its price. Most of the service staff were friendly. Front waiter at the entrance was not friendly though - something to work on to get the customer’s experience started on the right track.
A little disappointed with the quality of food. The beef that they used is not good ( I have had good ones many times previously in the city branch). The food was also only Luke warm instead of piping hot. Nevertheless, the service was good and the staff were all friendly & helpful.
Overall experience is good, however when we arrived we were told that they did not get our reservation although we showed them email confirmation. This is of course not the fault of the staff who was attending to us, in fact he got us seats right away. Just take note that this doesn’t happen again especially if you have customers making reservation for extremely important occasion like mine (wedding anniversary) and the restaurant is full house!
Service was excellent. Really friendly and prompt service. The cocktails were also great. Unfortunately, the food was quite disappointing. Ordered the jewel truffle wagyu don with foie gras- there was no trace of truffle at all. Couldn’t even detect the slightest scent of it. The foie gras was overcooked so instead of being pleasantly soft and almost melt-in-your-mouth, it was hard and I’ve never had an overdone foie gras before. The truffle fries were also a let down as the seasoning was mostly salt more than anything, with the mushrooms on top being rather soggy, thus making the crisp fries soggy as well. for all these, I wouldn’t say that the price was worth it. Perhaps it’s just the Jewel outlet because I’ve had better food at the town outlet
Waited for at least 5 mins for service staff to attend to us for our seats despite making reservations. Rice bowls are generally good but truffle fries pales in comparison. I would still go back for their rice bowls and try out their sandwiches in the future!
Please do have a few print copies of the menu instead of replying solely on the QR code to bring up the menu on mobile phones. It is impossible for older folks to read the menu on the mobile phone.
Will be great to have coffee and tea beverages for customers like us to go well with burger sandwiches instead of soft drinks.
Service wise - Don was professional and friendly. Compliments to him. However, there was some technical issues with the system and my Changi Rewards could not go through. The telephone number (85904900) on Table Agent (and Tanuki Raw) is not working. Value-for-money, if I did not use my Changi staff pass and Jewel Voucher, then, it's slightly on the high side. We wanted to sake but Tanuki only had it as a cocktail or the 90ml glass with a big ice cube, which we found to be rather sweet. So that was a bit of disappointment. Staff service, generally friendly but I sense some were still a bit 'rusty' (or new) and thus not familiar. However, they were eager to serve so I'd applaud that and happy for the business as the restaurant was quite crowded.
