Came for dinner. ordering the food was an unpleasant experience. Waitress was pushy with certain dishes and kept interrupting while we were talking. Asked for seaweed salad and she started going on about her potato salad. food came quite quickly which was good. Sashimi -> sliced without any finesse whatsoever. Huge thick salmon slices.. might as well write 'salmon steak'... More

Excellent Lunch set only $10 nett! Small restaurant, limited seats, so need to make reservations. lunch time 12-2.30pm. Cuppage Plaza, an old shopping centre (with many local eateries), off main road. Day time this is very popular with nearby office crowd. Evening, popular with karaoke/pubs.

Chanced upon it on a random Wednesday after strolling around Orchard& Somerset. Liked it so much that we visited it again on Friday of the same week. Do expect a long queue if you would come on Fridays, but it is still a good place to catch up with friends or just to unwind and chill. After all, they have... More

I have eaten here twice in the last two weeks and have to say that it is about as authentic a cheap Japanese after-work eatery as you will find outside Japan. The service can be a bit erratic but it's good enough if you smile at the overworked ladies and don't ask to order in one language when they are... More

I was first introduced to Izakaya Nijumaru by my friend. Went there a few times and the food was really good. However, yesterday when I decided to introduce my other frens to the place, I had the worst experience ever in a restaurant. I am ok with waiting for good food... There is a saying whereby "good food is always... More

Excellent service (feels like back in Japan). Good authentic Japanese cooking as affirmed by my Japanese friend. Very casual atmosphere (hardly like a Izakaya); and seeing the same Japanese customers coming back week after week.

Excellent Japanese fare. Very 'local' Japanese feel. Not really a fancy diner - very functional seating...but the food is absolutely worth a visit, or ten. They also have a good collection of sake as I remember from a previous visit.
