We came upon this restaurant while visiting Clarke Quay one Sunday evening. We were directed to a table that was not in a satisfactory position (against the entrance steps) and so we asked if we could move to one of about 6 other tables that were vacant and non with any reserved signs. The waitress said no they were all... More

This izakaya had a good selection of tasty dishes which went perfectly together with a cold Asahi and a mug of sake. The prices are steep, but this is after all Clarke Quay..!

Loving Japanese culture and food, I was out to dine one night at Clarke Quay when I spotted the Tomo Izakaya. Lured by the tanuki at the door, I went in and was well received, with live music on a saturday night. The house had probably a 40 to 50% occupancy. Ordered some kimchee ramen and some chicken meatballs. The... More

Japanese food of good quality. We tried different kind of maki and a grilled squid: everything has been well prepared (not exceptional but not bad) and quickly served. I give one more point for the position: you will enjoy a great view of the river.

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.
