Located on the first floor of Electra House, Level One Restaurant specialises in serving a good range of Asian cuisine. Many of their dishes are designed to be shared with friends over a few drinks. The restaurant offers a special "Omakase!" selection to eliminate the hassle of choosing the dishes yourself.
The pork ribs and pork belly in their Pork Rack & Belly BBQ were very well done, with the meat being tender and juicy. The Korean spicy chilli sauce used to glaze the pork gave it a bit of a spicy kick that was not too strong. Accompanying the pork was a salad of rice, whose refreshing flavour provided a balance to the pork.

Resembling Korean Fried Chicken, the Chicken Wings were cooked just right with the spicy sauce coating them having the right degree of heat to make eating them enjoyable. The sauce also had the right texture to ensure the crisp coating of the chicken was not marred. Provided with the chicken were bowls of water to wash your fingers in, giving you the freedom to handle the chicken with your fingers.

Generous enough to be shared, the Korean Squid Pancake was fried to golden brown. It had a lovely meaty texture provided by the baby squid mixed into the pancake. Served with the dish was a dipping sauce that the pancake can be dipped in if you wish to add a salty element to the dish.

While we would have liked the portion size of the Char-grilled Eggplant to be a bit bigger, the eggplant was still cooked to perfection with the right amount of char-grilled flavour. The eggplant was also drenched in a black tea bouillon to subtly enhance its flavour and umani crunch to give the dish a distinctive flavour along with adding a bit of crispiness.

Putting a twist on the Japanese dish known as Ramen, the quality of the gnocchi in their Ramen Gnocchi was excellent. They were light and fluffy. The mixture of shimeji and king brown mushrooms gave it a flavour similar to its namesake and there was enough sauce to ensure the gnocchi was not too dry.

The décor of the restaurant gave it a modern feel and the tables were spaced a good distance apart from each other. If you are looking for something a bit unique, consider dropping by Level One Restaurant for a try.
