Authentic Japanese food! Not bad- Service.

So, before 3 of my girlfriends and I went to Nijumaru, we went online to see the reviews. Many complaint about the bad service. Quite surprisingly,even  though the restaurant was quite busy (there was a short queue outside) the service given to us that day was acually nothing to complain about, pretty average singaporean service standard. Hot green tea and towel was served to us when we were given our table and the menu was given to us shortly after. The staff( mostly aunties) were very helpful to give us suggestion on what to order. 

We ordered quite a bit of food actually, all not too bad for the price we were paying! Food that I will recommend would be the Sotong, grilled Pork Belly, Agedashi tofu,Mixed Tempura and Sashimi( really fresh and not expensive at all!).
 The bill came out very affordable even though we also ordered Sake towrads the end, just to try.
 
Turns out we were quite happy with our meal even though we were expecting some crappy service 
Will definitely come back here for nights out! 
p.s ur clothes might smell after dining here.

just a bad service of the day.....

Went with friend for dinner last night and ordered our takes. I ordered fried rice and the 3 layer pork. They served me the latter but my fried rice did not arrive even though my friend had completed his meal. Well of course I cancelled my order and what annoyed me most was that there was not a single word of apology. Sigh!

Cheap and good

Nowadays, I either go to Shinji or Shabu Shabu Gen for the unbelievably sublime, though expensive gastronomic feast or I can get better and cheaper food than those chain restaurants (with Rakuichi as exception) right in dingy location of Cuppage Plaza. Besides Kaiho and Shinjuku, another good find is Izakaya Nijumaru which offers a variety of classic, common Japanese food.

The set meals are very value for money given the quantity of the food and the fresh ingredients used. The pickles are well done and the buta katsu is crispy and flavourful, having none of that unpleasant smell of overused oil. The ambience is simple yet having a strong Japanese influence. If the service crew speaks in Japanese, it will feel as though one gets transported to a street in Japan.

Service is quite okay, though I always visit on Saturday afternoons when it was not crowded, so it may differs from the standard at night. One of my top choices for some down to earth good Japanese food.
