A unique yet affordable Japanese dining experience
Westfield Garden City is a widely popular destination for shopping and dining, with the "Town Square" of Garden City offering a range of restaurants to dine at. Located near this restaurant precinct lies Motto Motto Japanese Kitchen, a restaurant which offers a casual dining experience for customers. As the name suggests, this restaurant serves a fresh selection of Japanese cuisine, all brought to you by the same people behind the highly popular, award-winning restaurant Sono Restaurant.

Choosing what to eat at Motto Motto Japanese Kitchen is not an easy feat, as they have an array of dishes available to choose from. You can opt from the classic Japanese curry rice bowl, to a classic Japanese ramen noodles served in ton-kotsu ramen soup. Motto Motto also has a range of rice bowls served with traditional Japanese toppings, as well as various Japanese rolls and side dishes on offer.
Just look at the variety of dishes available on this colourful menu from Motto Motto! Your meal can also be upgraded to a set meal at an additional cost.
If you are feeling slightly peckish after an afternoon of shopping at Garden City, yet you are unable to stomach a full meal, then Motto Motto has got you covered. Available from 3pm to 6pm, Motto Motto's "snack" option is a snack-sized version of their main meals – all at a lower price of course. However if a meal right before dinnertime does not appeal to you, there are always Motto Motto's range of side dishes or salads to choose from. Additionally, Motto Motto has soft serve ice cream available too. You can choose from the rich green tea flavour, creamy vanilla flavour, or a combination of both flavours all in one cone.
The green tea soft serve. Creamy and rich in flavour, it is not surprising that I keep coming back for more.
An interesting fact about this restaurant is its name "Motto Motto", which is derived from the Japanese word "もっと" (moh-toh), meaning "more". From my own experience of dining at Motto Motto Japanese Kitchen, I can safely say that you will be asking for "more" than one visit in the future.
Motto Motto Japanese Kitchen is located at Level 2 in Westfield Garden City.
