In the heart of Clarke Quay, this funky restaurant offers great variety of food and drinks for all tastes. I particularly enjoyed the pork belly and japanese rice ale. Live jazz music was the cherry on top! Definitely recommend it!

the place of this restaurant is amazing. just near the Singapore river. during your dinner you can enjoy the river boats passing by. the food was delicious. but the sharing plate for two( sashimi) was not really enough for two people.

Salmon was stale, even when we informed the staff they did nothing about it. Wrong orders were served even when the store wasn't busy. We were greeted with better service before, but not sure why it dropped tremendously this time around.

This restaurant is a lovely place to site on the water side and the staff are very prompt. The food was fairly expensive but it is typical for this particular area. I had the sushi platter for 1 for $35 and there wasn't a great deal of sushi but what was there was very nice.

We sat down to dinner with 3 kids at 8.45 after a full day if traveling. We thought this place looked great. It took them 15 mins to take our drink order and another 10 to order our food. The first meal came after 1/2hr. It was a share plate and we weren't given little plates like they usually do.... More

Located on the north side of the Singapore river near Clark Quay, Izakaya is a modern Japanese restaurant with an indoor and outdoor dining area. The table service was slow despite it being a quiet night but friendly and attentive when they came. The food arrived in good time however. We ordered edamame, grilled squid, and tempura all of which... More

I went to Tomo Izakaya for lunch the first day I arrived in Singapore. During previous trips I remember having excellent food in Singapore, so my expectations were high. The sushi at this place was definitely fresh and the presentation was great, but the flavor was somewhat lacking. I couldn't pin point the issue, I suppose sometimes fish does not... More
