Shin Kushiya are proud of their signature Kushiyaki skewers. The freshest meat, seafood and vegetables are arranged artfully on bamboo skewers and grilled with care over Bincho charcoal from Japan to provide a crisp smokiness while sealing the natural flavours within. Paired with the purest condiments which are freshly ground sea salt, cracked black pepper and homemade tare sauce, Kushiyaki is a simple and satisfying pleasure.

Japanese food-try

Total Reviews: 147

There was a 50% off second lunch set promotion happening now, it’s a super good deal. Even without it, the salmon Don is one of the cheaper ones you can find in Singapore. There is a good variety of Japanese barbeque you can choose from. You can also have choice of curry salt or plum salt to go with the skewer food. I feel the plum salt is better as it does not overpower the taste of food. Ambience is great and service crew is one of the friendliest.  Price is average but good for price to pay for the quality of food.

Went to Shin Kushiya for dinner with the usual bunch of colleagues few weeks ago on a Friday night.
 Oh boy, I must say that beside the great company, the food is so yummy too!
 Some of the dishes which i would recommend:
 - Skewers (we ordered a variety for the six of us, but my favourites are the homemade chicken meatballs, golden mushrooms wrapped with sliced pork, cherry tomatoes wrapped with sliced beef, rice with spicy codfish roe) - all the ingredients used were very fresh and they are all cooked to perfection!
 - Bluefin sea robbin in sashimi style (Seasonal item)
 - Flamed salmon sashimi maki
 - Lobster maki
 - Cold Somen
 - Deep fried thin udon with wasabi mayonnaise (which all of us couldn't stop munching!)
 I can see myself going back soon to try out the other food, and definitely a good place for gatherings too.
 Lastly, thumbs up to the service even though the restaurant was always flooded with customers at any point of the time.

New season menu!

I was told there is a new season menu for April. So here I am and all ready to try this Houbou fush aka bluefin sea robbin. and what is the best way to eat a fish in Japanese style? Sashimi and grilled!
 when the fish was served in sashimi style. It has a fresh and mild sweetness taste to it. But it is the grilled style which I like the most. Slightly grilled skin and all white flesh Give the heavenly texture and sweet taste in my mouth. Themail best part about having the fish here it is they all fresh frown from Japan.
 Since I am here, I will not missed the chance to oder some of the famous Yakitori. There so many variety of choices. When they serve those Yakitori in a long plat. It is not only visually appealing but also make me very happy.
 There are many different type of choice. the one that I like the most are pork belly, chicken, fish, bacon wrap and cherry tomat that pop in your mouth. What anice experience.
 Maki roll are another highlight on that day dinner. The black dragon roll was really good. served with unagi and prawn. You will never go wrong with these combo.
 Another thing that really cheer me up was the drinks. I had a drink that the pearls are not normal pearls. Those pearlo will pop in your mouth. those are yakut pearls. Now how did they do that?
 The overall experience were great. Especially dining with bunch of good friends. I am sure to be back with my family next time.

New Menu at Shin Kushiya

This is my second visit to this restaurant. I was previously surprised by the wide offering, so I came back again.

Since my last visit, the menu has been revamped. There are new additions to the menu and I ordered a few items from their new menu to try:

- Houbou Sashimi: $39.80. This was Bluefin Sea Robin Sashimi that’s been imported directly from Japan. After we had finished the sashimi, the staff made soup with the fish bones. The soup was clear soup and has a slightly sweet taste. Its nice.

 - Houbou Shioyaki: $48.80. Char-grilled sea robin with sea salt. The same fish as mentioned earlier but its now grilled with salt. The fish is nice and tender. I like the crispy parts of the fish skin/ fins. Those parts were a tad salty due to the salt.

- Black Dragon Maki: $17.80. Deep fried prawn sushi roll topped with sliced unagi, a dollop of mayonnaise and ebi roe. I love the unagi and the mayonnaise. Its nice, and I will order it again.

- Volcano Maki: $15.80. Deep fried maki with crab meat, salmon and unagi. This was interesting. A rolled maki that’s been cut to pieces and then coated with batter and deep fried. The batter is light, similar to tempura batter and it gave a nice unique texture to the maki. Its drizzled with sweet black sauce and mayonnaise and topped with ebi roe.

- Subuta: $11.80. Japanese style Sweet & Sour Pork. This is is very similar to the Chinese ‘Ko Lo Yoke’. The pork pieces are coated with flour and deep fried before it’s stir-fried with mixed vegetables – egg plane, capsicum, carrots and mushrooms. It’s nice. Portion is good for sharing.

- Buta Shioyaki: Char-grilled pork belly in sweet sauce and topped with fried minced garlic. Sliced pork belly nicely laid out on a serving plate. Its good. Personally, I would have preferred the pork belly to be more thinly sliced, which will make each bite perfect!

- Saba Misoni: $8.80. Braised Japanese mackerel in miso sauce. I am not usually a fan of saba fish, as most of the time its grilled and too dry for my liking. However, I loved this very much, as its steamed and then served atop Chinese spinach vegetables with a nice miso dressing. Its good. Must-order!

The new menu items are good and I like the food in the new menu.

Overall, a good meal and I will be back again with my family.

Try it!
