The award-winning Les Amis Group’s JINzakaya is a laidback enclave that recalls old Tokyo train station pubs, offering Singapore locals the chance to drink and dine in proper Japanese izakaya fashion. This animated bar and restaurant is a fashionable but casual space, known for its affordable set lunches ideal for workers, tasty sharing plates, yakimono skewers and an impressive sake selection. Set right next to sister concept Sushi Jin, the restaurant is easy to reach, too, just off Rangoon Road on the pedestrian backstreet of Farrer Park Station Road, close to the bustle of Serangoon Road in Little India. Kanpai!

Japanese cuisine comes in many forms, and at JINzakaya in Singapore’s Little India they’re working hard to create the very best. And workers close to Rangoon Road and the backstreet of Farrer Park Station Road (where you’ll find this izakaya) will appreciate the effort: set lunches like the signature JIN tori ramen with chargrilled chicken and an onsen egg are always popular, as is the katsu curry with Jinzakaya’s special curry gravy and the healthy sake harashu with fresh garden greens, salmon belly and a homemade ponzu dressing. The price is fantastic, and each set lunch main comes with a hot or cold hojicha.
When evening rolls around and local workers start looking for a place to decompress with colleagues, JINzakaya’s yakimono skewers begin to make a whole lot of sense. Choose from 19 varieties of delicious grilled skewers and ten main dishes, from classic chicken thighs and mid-wing joint skewers to indulgent foie gras and MBS 4 Wagyu sticks. Grilled mains like the bacon-wrapped king prawns and the generous slab of medium-rare MBS 8 Australian Wagyu steak are recommended options. At this popular Japanese izakaya in Singapore’s Little India, the open charcoal grill kitchen is a visual and olfactory centrepiece, but don’t forget the sashimi and salads, noodles and desserts, and the beer, shochu and sake list, broken down from sweet to dry, affordable to premium prices!
Lovely experience, made better with great service and food. Good place to chill with friends, family or quiet evening for 2 . Check it out .
Good qualty food and good selection of sake for the customers to choose from. Small and comfy environment, not overly cramped or crowded. Nice for a gathering with friends
The restaurant sits inside the connexion building. A small yet conducive ambience with excellent service. The serving staff are always attentive towards customers. We specially love the beef short rib and chicken thigh! Thumbs up for that!! Thanks for the fond memories on our anniversary :) Great choice indeed!
