Chill place

No long queues even at 7.30pm, maybe because it was a Monday. Customers streamed in steadily though.. the staff were kept busy. Choose from alfresco dining or dining indoors, where you will have more restricted dining lighting. 
Service crew were generally polite and attentive, even though we were seated in a corner. There was probably only once when we had to literally call out for their attention. 
Appetisers are supposedly free-replenish, but, my request for a top-up of the bowl of cabbage never came back. 
The friends and I probably tested the patience of the staff taking our orders, by asking for recommendations and later declining some of them. Order-taking took some time. 
Food was served up pretty quickly though. 
Of all the dishes ordered/recommended, the yakitori stick of beef was best. As agreed by the other friends. The meat was chunky and still tender. Juicy and tasty. I could have asked for more. 
I thought the garlic fried rice could have more garlic taste, while the rest thought the rice was good. Hmm. 
The other dishes were, just.... alright. 
What's best about the place, is the chill environment and relaxed feeling it gave. Made us feel very comfortable. 
A recommended place for friends to gather, for a quiet chat.

Extremely bad service

Service crew started a debate with us when we decided to leave out the last dish and leave early because there were 8 people smoking right beside where we were seated. We wanted to pay and just leave and staff was clueless about how to handle the situation. Another staff came to us and told us we

Relax Dining

Upon arriving, I decided to sit inside to beat the heat, although the weather these past few days has been pretty alright.  The setting is an izakaya no frills place, but serves good quality food with the alcohol to match.

Start with the Pita Tofu ($4), a light refreshing way to open the palette,

Dependable Robertson restaurant

Restaurants in the Robertson Quay/Walk area come and go, and the fact that Shunjuu is still going strong speaks to its quality. Specialising in skewered grilled meats, I'd put Shunjuu on par with my other go-to place for this kind of cuisine, Kazu. The last time I was there, the standout dishe
