Robertson Quay is a nice location for an evening meal & you have the choice of indoor & outdoor seating. The food was generally very good & there's a wide selection. The service was average.

This is my 3rd time and still like it because of the meat quality, friendly service and no pretentious environment. We ordered 2 sets of different high quality beef, 2 portions of lamb, 1 portion grill vegetable, 1 portion salad and few draft beers, good enough for 3 people cost 220 bucks. Good experience for red meat lovers.

I've been eating here for over 10 years and it's a regular favorite. Advise reservations on the weekend as it can get quite crowded as it's popular with the Japanese expat community. Great selection of meats to grill. The wagyu platter is heavenly and the beef simply melts in you mouth. I always order the mixed veggies as well as... More

One expects Singapore restaurants to be expensive, but this one takes the cake. A mouthful and a drink for $90. I've had far better Korean BBQ exploding with flavor in Dubai for $5. The meal was extremely less than average. Lots of supposed exotic meat that was tasteless and the most meager serving of vegetables. I have seen scraps of... More

Gone there for a "solo" dinner, the restaurant is quite nice and informal. I really enjoyed the fact that and you cook the meat by yourself. The wagyu meat was great, while the noodles I ordered are simply "standard" quality.

We have been here 5 or 6 times in the past few years and have always been quite happy with the price / quality trade-off. So we decided to come here again for dinner last night, bringing along the kids and a few friends. We chose a selection of vegetables, pork, various wagyu and supplemented with fried rice and salad,... More

My favourite SG spot for casual but good Japanese BBQ. Location is fine close to the waterfront (but not on it) in a quiet 'corner' of Robertson Walk/Quay. Tables inside and outside. Beef is generally good (had the wagyu set plus some angus). Veggies and dips 'a la mode'. Be careful not to overcook the thin tender slices ;-)

BBQ your own food. Had the wagyu beef and shrimp with the garlic rice. Beef was ok and tends to be a bit thin so when cooked it can get a bit burnt. Shrimp a better choice and the garlic rice was very good. Food is served quickly but service a bit slow once food is served.

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.
