Subject: Mum’s Birthday and Family Reunion Dinner

Message: So two of my sibliings just got back and absolutely know no where, it’s my Mum’s birthday and we want to go some where Fancy with good food. It’s 5 of us, with a budget of 40k above, I don’t think it should exceed 70k though. I was thinking Shiro but I’m not sure of their menu, absolutely love the ambiance though...what say you?
— OkuB Of Jand

NOSA: If you like sushi, you should give Shiro a shot. Your budget can take it.

Another option is RSVP. The menu has been revamped if you haven't been in a while. 

FOLLY: Casper & Gambini's is nice too.  

Subject: Great Dinner venue - ambience like Shiro

Message: I am looking for a dinner venue with the ambience of Shiro or close. 1st date Shiro so need to up it on 2nd date. No budget constraints.
— Luke Akayi

NOSA: Started with Shiro? You're going to run out to places to visit, mate. Probaby have to fly her to Nobu by the third date. Jokes aside, your next step has to be NOK or maybe Izanagi.

FOLLY: I disagree with Izanagi as the ambience is no where close to Shiro's. I think Utopia could work.
