They keep run out of my favourite dishes and that's not a bad thing

Been coming here for a while now. A simple, unpretentious place with friendly staff and pretty decent yakitori. I come here for the beef short ribs, the tsukune (meatier and with a deeper flavour than the usual ones you'd get) and the pitan tofu. The beef short ribs in particular are stellar. Only problem: they run out of stuff far too often, it's not uncommon to have at least 1-2 items in my order out of stock at any one time. That said, still a reliable place to get some izakaya done on a Friday night... if you can get a table.

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 cannot cancel our last dish because it was already on the grill. It was only $5 SGD only! We went inside to pay and as she took her own sweet time to prepare the bill, and began to giggle and chat with the colleague in a different language. We managed to speak to the owner of the place via a phone call, but she was fixated on collecting the bill - Not trying to apologize nor fix the absurd service we received, taking the situation very lightly.
