Further Information

Telok Ayer is chock full of restaurants and bars worth a visit for lunch or an after-work hangout, and if the idea of ambrosial food and drinks in a traditional Japanese setting sounds right up your alley, you’ll want to check out ShuKuu Izakaya on Stanley Street. Founded by four young Japanophiles with the intention of recreating the ambience of Japanese izakayas in the heart of Singapore, the menu here is bold, creative and expressive with deep roots in Japanese flavours and a hint of Western influences.

Drop by ShuKuu Izakaya to enjoy flavourful options like the gyu don, a Japanese beef bowl, or the oden soba, a dashi-based soup with Japanese fish cake, daikon, eggs, soba noodles and plenty of vegetables. An assortment of baked, grilled and deep-fried side dishes complete the experience – try the crispy baked parmesan chizu chips and any of the charcoal skewers – which we highly recommend washing down with sake since this is, after all, one of Singapore’s top sake bars. The secret’s out about Shukuu Izakaya, so book ahead of time to secure a table at this Telok Ayer hotspot.

The Wagyu beef stick and bacon hotate stick is so good! Went on a Friday night and spent around $122 for two. Would come back for the yakitori.

Awesome Izakaya and value for money. For starters, the guy ponzu was refreshing for the palate. Will recommend the mackerel and Grilled squid paired with the Sapporo draft.

Very nice food and good service! Quite disappointed that they ran out of sashimi though. And the staffs look busy all the time so our glass of water was never refilled... but still, doesn't really matter because the food were really good! I love the tsukune most! So soft and fragrant! I also really like the mentai rosti. Their potato shreds were not the soft kind you get at Marche but a bit... how do i put it? Fresh and crunchy? And the mentai sauce was just the right amount! Not too much to the point of overpowering the rosti and not too little that i don't taste the mentai. Will definately be back for more!!

Good foods & great lively atmosphere! We had the onigiri, sashimi platter, chef's skewer selections and grilled makerel to share among two. Sashimi was sweet, fresh and love the generous cut. Skewers were delicious especially the Tsukune, it was juicy and packed with flavours. The only downside was we found the sapporo draft beers were not as fresh and pungent. It was not bad but just not the best. Overall, it was a pleasant dining experience, definitely a place we will return!

Service was slow, guess they were shorthanded. We were seated but menu was not passed to us. Service staff were just zooming past everyone and it was really hard to get their attention, and even if we did, they would ask us to wait. We eventually got the menus ourselves at the counter. Waited really long for the food to come, more than 1 hour and our dishes were not served completely including the potato salad which was supposed to be the appetizer. We got so tired of waiting that we cancelled 2 dishes. Food was ok. We had the buta don, spicy salmon don, aburi mackerel, rosti mentaiko but overall, I wouldn't visit again because it's just not worth the wait and money.

Love the food and service was good too. Despite the crowd, the staffs tried their best to attend to our needs. I also like that food ar ein small portions because we can try larger variaty. With a wide selection of food, my favorite is the meatball!!

Food was good, but the service was excellent. The waiter went to great pains to explain the menu to us and offered recommendations and seemed very enthusiastic about his work. They have a penchant for many things mentaiko and cheese-related, so you might want to mix your orders up to savour a wider range of flavours.
