Located at The Central, Haramiya is a Japanese BBQ restaurant. It can accommodate as much as 100 seats including a private room. Every tables are equipped with yakiniku smoke-free roaster. Be spoilt with a wide selection of Japanese and Korean dishes.

Haramiya Japanese BBQ served very nice BBQ meats. Mrupupup went to Haramiya located at Central #03-87 (Clarke Quay MRT station). Wow, Mrupupup totally enjoyed the experience of cooking the meats over the hot stove! Mrupupup tried the beef set ($17.80) and the pork set ($14.80). Both came with sides of toufu, vegetables, sweet jelly & fruit dessert and salad. The meats were well marinated and tasted very nice after the BBQ. Mrupupup also BBQ onions and carrots. Mrupupup preferred the pork for it tasted like 'bak kwa' BBQ meats. Take note the fire from the stove could be very hot and surely did warmed up Mrupupup's face. Really fun to BBQ and enjoyed the meats! Haramiya also serves Korean dishes. Think better go during lunch for the sets are cheaper. Mrupupup may want to go to Haramiya again!

Haramiya, also known as Haramiya Japanese BBQ Restaurant, is somewhat of a misnomer, as their menu gravitates heavily towards Korean rather than Japanese food. Having said that, Haramiya is still a relatively good dining choice if you're nearby.
Ambience at Haramiya lends towards the oriental Mandarin style, with dark teak furnishings and red lanterns. Because of this choice of decor, Haramiya doesn't look appealing from the outside, projecting a 'gloomy' sort of feel. However, it's better during the day, as they're able to tap natural sunlight with a panel of windows. Haramiya can get rather noisy during peak periods.
While the service staff at Haramiya are friendly and helpful, they aren't very observant. For example, they may fail to notice that you haven't been provided utensils until you request for it. Upon request though, things get done really quickly. They also aren't very familiar with the menu, although they will check with their superiors for an answer. Special requests such as swapping items in a set will be entertained, though your options of dishes to change to are rather limited.
Food packs a lot of flavour at Haramiya. Meats are well marinated, which she liked, and vegetables have an in-house vingerette as dressing. Haramiya offers yakiniku japanese barbeque, and the cooking concept is smoke-free as it uses an electric fire. The drawback is that it doesn't have the smoky flavour from using charcoal.
We would definitely love to visit again!

Food is OK, although the service is a bit slow.
