Expect more on the price we paid...

We booked a table of 6 thru on-line reservation. When we went in the restaurant, we were offered a quite clamed table so we instantly asked for changing to a bigger one at a corner. The waiter was very helpful and moved for us.

The Sapporo beer (in mug) was good, and with the promotion offered, just S$5 each, we finished up 14 mugs in total. That's the best of all.

The tebayaki was good among all skewers we ordered, the rest are so so, I did not find any specials from the black angus ribeye skewers, yet not very tender and hard to chew. A bit let-down as they don't offer some very native and authentic traditional skewers like gingle nuts, garlic as in other similar kind of restaurant. For sashimi, the Aji was nice, we asked the waiter to deep-fry the bone but it did not taste nice and not crispy enough (even Sushitei's one is better and much cheaper). The jumbo oyster was fresh but not jumbo enough for a price of S$10.8 each. The cold udon was nice, from the outlook, it looks like handmade. The ika grilled was a bit overdone and too salty.

We stayed quite late till the last order time and we enjoyed the ambience a lot. When the night fell, we could see the nice night view of Santosa island. Overall, we had a good and relaxing evening there.

Will go back again, but will selectively pick those really nice food.

Not worth the price

Score is an average of 2 visits I made to the outlet.
My first visit was lunch on 4 Sep, 5 pax. I had the Sanshoku Don Set which was average. Items that our group liked were the Ika Kimuchi, beef inaniwa udon and the beer. 
My second visit was dinner on 9 Sep, 2 pax. We entered outlet slightly

Well-known for grilled stuff

The very first place that I came to know about this restaurant.  And that is considered many years ago.  Till now, I also have tried other branch at My Village. different concept.  I still prefers to dine it at this origin place.

I seldom order their grilled food, as there are many variety.

Great Seasonal Menu

Was at Shin Kushiya Vivo with my buddies and was really happy to see their new Hokkaido snow crab menu. Something different.. I decided to try something from the seasonal menu, the kani kimuchi nabe udon. It was mouth-watering. The kani was sweet and juicy and the broth was appetizing and
