Excellent food..some of the plates are very small, so sharing several dishes is a good bet. Tomato salad and short ribs were standouts. The waiter was helpful and pleasant, although he forgot one of our dishes and by the time he remembered it, we had...More

Biiru is a very popular Japanese restaurant that specialises in tapas-style small plates. The service was good and quick and they do a good job of warming up the sake. My dining companion and I had several plates, including cheese ravioli, octopus, sashimi and caramelized...More
