Nobody does Japanese cuisine quite like Tomo Izakaya. This outlet, located in Singapore’s Clarke Quay, is one of two branches of the popular Japanese restaurant – the other is at Esplanade Mall – and has managed to become one of the city-state’s leading izakaya-style establishments. From sushi to bento boxes and grilled specialties, Tomo Izakaya on River Valley Road has all the Japanese delights you know and love, all done with skill and a keen eye for detail.

The atmosphere inside of Tomo Izakaya on River Valley Road in Singapore’s Clarke Quay is striking, featuring a big tree-like structure in the middle of the dining area covered in sake bottles and a distinct Japanese decor throughout. Choose to sit at the sushi bar or take one of the tables, and you’ll experience some of Singapore’s most polite service – be sure to ask your friendly waitron for suggestions or help navigating the extensive menu.
Clarke Quay’s Tomo Izakaya offers plenty of traditional Japanese dishes to suit your tastes, whether you’re after something hearty and filling like cheese ham katsu or would rather something light and healthy like sushi and sashimi – try the California maki, salmon sashimi or tamago sushi. Dishes like the octopus in wasabi sauce, stewed pork belly or the grilled cuttlefish set this restaurant apart from the rest with seafood even flown in from Japan! We can’t recommend Tomo Izakaya in Clarke Quay enough – be sure to book ahead to secure a table.

Great food and atmosphere as usual. Food and alcohol selection varied as always. Service was prompt and efficient as always too. Perfect for weekends and groups.
This was my first time there and I’ve always been a fan of one other very good Japanese restaurant. However tonight I was open to trying other places because my favourite had fallen from my esteem. And I’m Glad I did. Restaurant surrounds were very good. It was nicely done up and tasteful, though a little dated. What else would you have in a Japanese restaurant but sashimi! And we concentrated on that. Fish was fresh but not the most fresh ... but it’s not going to give you problems. Overall I enjoyed it but it was really the company at my table that made the night!
The staff are very attentive and fast in terms of service, either in ordering or paying the bill. The restaurant call to ask for confirmation of booking and allow customers to choose the type of seating they wanted. The place has a nice ambience with a choice to sit on tatami mats (legs do not need to sit cross legged, sitting normally) or normal chairs. It can get a bit noisy and share seating with less privacy. Good for large groups.
The menu selection is extensive! You can find all sorts of japanese dishes from yakitori to tempura to sushi AND more. Food portions were more than expected (bonus!) and prices can be deemed reasonable or a tad pricey. Ambience is bright inside and decor is to the theme. Only thing was they did not know how to let me offset my points. Even though they could not help with that, they were trying to help nonetheless.
The ambience was good; cosy and suited for meet ups with friends. There was live band at ard 9 too. Food was reasonably priced and delectable. Wide range of choices are available for the food selections. Overall good experience there. Intending to go back for the second round :)
It's was a unique experience, they gave us a surprise by making a birthday rice cake,when we make the reservation for dinner, mentioning was for a birthday. attentive service staffs,friendly..nice vocal for the live band, even sang birthday song when the cake was approaching to our table..will recommend friends there for our next gathering!
Food was decent, staff could be more friendly though. I find the pricing still reasonable considering that it's in a tourist attraction area. Feel like it's more suitable for bigger groups since you can share more of the many dishes that they have.
