I love pasta and when I first tried pasta at Pasta de Waraku, I was hooked. My friend introduced this restaurant to me at Heeren. The setting and atmosphere is nice. As we were there on a weekday night, it was very quiet and we were the second customers. Sadly, this outlet’s lease has expired and since closed down.

The menu presentation is very nice and appealing. There is a wide range of pasta with different sauces available. There is also a section of soup pasta. Besides pasta, there is also rice and pizza. After the meal, one can also get dessert to complete the meal.

As all the pasta looked very appealing, I simply could not decide which to get! Then, I chanced upon their set menu which includes two half pasta, complete with salad and soup which allows me to make two selections. My friend picked the set with gratin. I decided to get the spicy prawn carbonara pasta with yolk and the littleneck clams pasta soup.

The spicy prawn carbonara pasta with yolk was just perfect. It was not really spicy but the sauce was very unique, it was of an orange hue. It was really delicious. The pasta was of the right texture and bounciness and the egg just completes it. The soup pasta was not bad too but the soup was a little salty.

I would definitely go back again to try out the other pasta and food available.

Unique Cuisine!

At Pasta de Waraku, you will be spoilt for choices with dishes that mix both Western and Japanese cuisine, and a very good mix at that! The dishes are relatively reasonably priced, and the only flaw is the misleading pictures of the dessert. Cakes are not as ‘large’ as they seem in the pictures, and are pretty overpriced given the size of the cakes. When I ordered my cake, it was about half or three times smaller than I had expected it to be, judging from the picture in the menu. Nevertheless, they sure are mouth-watering desserts!

My favourite range would be the soupy pasta range, simply because it is not as dry as the normal pasta dishes like Bolognese or aglio olio, yet still has the pasta-y taste in the soup. Their drinks are commendable too, with both a wide variety and will definitely do more than just quench your thirst!

The quality of service is definitely not a problem, since it is efficient and good.

I would definitely recommend Pasta de Waraku for those who are looking for something new to try, yet without burning a hole in your pocket! It has a nice and comfortable ambience, and is suitable for everyone, including families and couples.

The first time I passed by Paste de Waraku, I was attracted to the unique menu that the display on the restaurant windows. Unlike other restaurants, the unique menu portray the real thing that customers are going to get when they order. 

My dining experience was good, with friendly staff and quick service that they provided. I ordered lunch set menu and within minutes, the food was delivered to me. 

As far as I remembered, the chicken that I ordered was crispy and tender on the inside. I would not mind eating the same thing again but I would still love to try other dishes that they offer. 

The price was reasonable, I spent less than $15 on the lunch set and considering the service and food  that they provide, it is quite a good lunch deal. 

However, one drawback might be the location. It's located at Square 2 at Novena and many people might not be too familiar with this place. It will be great if there are more outlets opened for this restaurant so that more people will be able to taste the Japanese Cuisines from Pasta de Waraku. 

I would suggest anyone who wants to try this restaurant to slide peak hours such as lunch and dinner hours. The restaurant would usually be packed and you may have to wait for some time.  2 pm might be a good timing to dine in for lunch as the crowd would then have reduced.

I had the opportunity to try Waraku once during a casual dinner date with a friend last year.
Granted that the prices are not really that cheap (but reasonable), the food are definitely worth its value. I love the wide variety of menu items that they have in store. (It ranges from spaghetti, baked rice, pizzas to even side dishes that will have you salivate.)

The illustrations looked good, as well as the real deal.
The ambience of the restaurant is peaceful and I totally enjoyed my experience there! I guess both my friend and I stayed for more than an hour there, chatting and absolutely having a great time while having our meals. It's one of those places where you can make yourself at home.

Do not ever underestimate the size portion of their servings - They are actually bigger than you expect! I was actually feeling quite full after eating 60% of it.
We had the small Japanese pizza as well, and it tasted suprisingly great. It was crispy and tackled my taste buds.
I will definitely patronize again and probably introduce to more of my friends who are into Japanese-style meals as well. You'll be spoilt for choice once you get your hands on their menu!
