Monday and Thursday, salmon sashimi is quite cheap. However, if I order 20-25 slices, around 5 slices are quite disgusting with all those veins and it doesn't taste fresh, needless to say that it does not have that scent of salmon. To avoid it, I order around 10 pieces each, so they cannot just sneak in some.. "lower than the... More

Went for their $3 for 5 sashimi promotion on a Thursday. It's a simple modern Japanese place. Service was good despite the place being packed. We had a reservation so we didn't queue (got quite long, understandably). We got 10 orders of the sashimi and two orders of seafood fried rice. Both were great! Worth a try even without the... More

We reserved a table here on a Thursday night because of their popular promo on Salmon Sashimi. While walking to the resto we saw a long queue so it helps to reserve in advance. The restaurant had a nice modern Japanese look to it which gave off the impression that the food will be quite pricey. We availed of their... More

Food is on the expensive side ... but sashimi was quite fresh. Worth a visit if around the area and when they are having promotions.

So apparently the place was booked out for the whole week so we decided to patronise the place after 8pm. The wait was less than 20 mins and we were promptly ushered to our seats. All the staff seemed exhausted due to the amount of people on the Monday madness but they still put up a smile, which is commendable.... More

Great value for 5 pieces of salmon. The offer is only available on Mondays 1700 - 2045 (closing time) though. The sushi rice complements the sashimi well but is a tad expensive at $4 a bowl. Also, go there for the food, don't expect good service; it was below average.

you can find really good deals, the noodles (spaghetti) with Japanese sauce are perfect. Crowd is young, service average, price cheap for drinks and special offers. Good sushi too.

2nd time visiting Standing Sushi Bar although I always walked past it on route to dance classes for the past 3 years! Finally had the chance to visit the place with a friend who is gaga over Asahi, sashimi and sushi. Initially we thought that there would be a long Q on a weekday night given the wonderful promotions which... More

My friend and I got diarrhoea after eating here. It didn't come as a surprise though. Their pipes overhead where we were seated were leaking and we only realised the liquid dripping onto our plates halfway through the meal. Plates of sashimi were stacked on top of each other when being carried to the tables with the bottom of some... More
