Food was great. Would be nice to lower the volume of ambient music a little. Otherwise great service and great food.
Waiters/waitress not being too attentive, been waited quite some time for them to come and take our order. Food is nice, hopefully service can be better :)
I know this is a very busy, popular izakaya. But I have been to better ones. The good bottle of 750 ml sake here will cost above $100. the food range is wide but serving is small for its price. I would rather they charge me a bit more short of ordering two of the same dish which then will be too much. So, I will not go back. I have better alternative.
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.
