Great beer, great atmosphere. It was nice to have a beer and watch the people passing by. They have a great selection of Japanese craft beer although the beers I wanted to try were not available. Apparently they were very popular. But the other beers recommended by the staff were really good. We did not eat here but everyone's food looked really good.

Friendly service. Promptly brought to our reserved table upon arrival. Good selection of craft beers. The grilled squid and shrimps were great with beer. Shop could do with some fan or air cooler though as it was quite warm and stuffy.

drinks are great, as is the ambience. perfect for big group hangouts. staff were friendly enough. but food is quite pricey, and not all of it worth it. we were most shocked that 1 bowl of white rice costs $3...... did not taste like truly authentic Japanese rice either!

Thoroughly enjoyed the craft beers they had on tap. Didn't have dinner before arriving so I ordered the Karaage Curry Rice. It was decent but of course the highlight of the night was the Hitachino Nest Pale Ale. The beer hit the spot and did not disappoint.

Great beer, great food. I just wish that some of the meat skewer dishes that are only available after 6:00pm are available in the afternoon. Otherwise, I always love going to your restaurant. The old uncle who works at night is my favorite waiter :)

A Japanese craft beer bar, located close to a metro station. Great place, very friendly staff, and awesome beer - been there twice while in Singapore. Will come back for sure if returning to Singapore!

Visited them on a Tuesday night, they have a variety range of craft bottled beer from Japan and some selection of unique drought beer. The only downside, they close early (at 11pm+). I guess that is because it's on a weekday. Seating is not a lot, do book online prior before coming.

Staff could be a little more alert and polite. Food is great, worth going back again. Would probably order another beer if they just kept the beer at the cheaper happy hour prices till 8pm.

It has great food and crafts beers. The Yakitori salad was the standout dish with the chicken being bbq-Ed to perfection. However, a tad on the pricey side for a casual establishment.

Good selection of beer on tap. Food is good as well. Chicken meatballs and gyoza are tasty, and the curry is also quite good. Highly recommended.

Good beer and good yakitori but menu is too small. Lack of food choices. Some onigiri and ochazuke will be good. If possible, some noodle dishes like soba and upon will be nice too.

Staff is really attentive and friendly. Quality of food is good. Only set back is that there are no indoor seats. Need to make sure that you are sitting under the rays.

Great chill place to get some nice food and drinks. The walking crowd to the MRT station may be a little disturbing.

Beer is fine. But was quite disappointed with the Yakitori. The meat is too big a chunk and not cook right with some being to tough to bite.

Good craft beers. Great location, but the outdoor-only seating can get warm even in the evenings, so plan accordingly!

Very bad service and the yakatori quality was poor. A handy and good vibe location but would not be coming back to eat here. Dissatisfied
