Interesting dishes

We had some interesting dishes at this restaurant. My friend was raving about the wasabi pickled octopus and I really enjoyed the lotus root chips we had for starters. The atmosphere is good and they had an acoustic band playing which was a little fun. There were a lot of things on the menu that... read more

The service at this restaurant is the worst I have experienced in Singapore. I went there with my wife. We were shown to our table, post which we got the menu on our tables after 20 mins and that too only after asking/ reminding 3 servers. This was just the beginning, we had to call 2 servers and wait 10... More

Typical Japanese place. Food is average. Service good. Ambiance and decor funky. Sitting on traditional tables or Western ones.

The food is absolutely bad. In the worst case the food is bad and in the better case, the food doesn't have any taste. Moreover it's very very expensive regarding the horrible quality of the dishes. If you want to spend a nice lunch or dinner go away ! It was our worst experience in Singapore !!

The moment we came in, we knew this place was quite expensive. We're fine with that, price was never an issue as long as we get satisfied. Well... that wasn't the case, we totally got very disappointed to the point that we felt cheated upon seeing and tasting the food. Food serving were small and unpleasant, the worst Japanese Resto...

The service is nice, and we had the choice to eat outside, as it was a dry evening. A very pleasant table by the river. The menu is long, made of tens of dishes around Japanes food: seafood, fish, meat, soups, vegetables and rice under numerous recipes. The sashimi was good, not excellent, in small quantity, and pricey. The beef... More

Went for a casual dinner on Saturday night as the place we wanted to go to had a huge queue. We have been before, nice to eat at the bar by the river. As with most places in Singapore though you are treated by miserable looking servers who can't be bothered to do the job and when you watch them... More

We came without reservation and the waitress was nice to give us a smoking table that was reserved under other person's name (I think the person cancelled at the last minute or something). Ordered various dishes and all of them were delicious, the staffs were efficient, so the dinner was great. The only thing was that we saw a huge... More

Dinner with colleagues, seated at the waterfront. Several dishes were served and have to say that both service and quality of food was good. Would certainly visit again.

Staying in The Quays

Neighborhood Profile
The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will take you through the three Quays of the city, each offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer. Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
