I’ve tried eating at this restaurant twice: the first time was for dinner at their Vivo City outlet and the 2nd time for lunch at their Far East Square outlet.

I didn’t enjoy the dinner as I found their kushiyaki (something like yakitori sticks) were too saltish for my taste.  However, the dinner set was worth the price I paid (about S$35 nett if I can remember correctly) as it came with 5 sticks of kushiyaki, garlic rice, fruits, hot green tea, 1 tiny bowl of salad, miso soup, pickles and 1 tofu cheesecake.  Service at the Vivo City outlet was excellent I must say.

The kushiyaki that I ate during lunch was less saltish and more palatable.  Again, I ordered the mixed kushiyaki set.  This time, it came with 4 sticks of kushiyaki (2 mushrooms, pork with a bit of cheese sprinkled on top, pork with asparagus and 1 prawn), 1 tiny bowl of salad, 1 miso soup, pickles, 1 small bowl of potato mashed with carrots and 1 cold glass of green tea.  For these, I paid S$22.95 nett.  Very good value for money.  My colleagues had their Nabeyaki Gindara Udon set (Japanese claypot noodles with prawn tempura, vegetables, egg and choice of chicken or cod fish; gindara is cod fish) and Hotate Kariage Don set (sea scallops and vegetables lightly battered and fried). 

The Nabeyaki Gindara Udon set costs S$27.40 nett including 1 cold glass of green tea and the Hotate Kariage Don set costs S$23.80 nett including 1 hot glass of green tea.  The green tea costs S$1.77 nett and is an optional item.

Service at the Far East Square is not as good as the Vivo City outlet but given that it was a very busy lunch crowd (the whole restaurant was packed), it was understandable.

From 5 November 2007, Shin Kushiya will deliver to offices in the vicinity of their restuarants at Suntec City, Vivo City and Far East Square.  Please click here (Shin Delivery Menu) for terms and conditions of delivery and menu.  Minimum order is S$100.

  1. Thanks for the recommendation, I visited their Suntec outlet along with my colleague for lunch. I’d give a 8/10 for my entire dining experience there. Service was great as the staff there were very conscientious and approachable. However, food took some time to arrive as the place was crowded. So all we had were our green tea mugs to sip on.

    I ordered their wafu hamburg(beef patty) set which costs $17.80 ++ and my colleague had her sushi set for $1980 ++. The sets were very filling and value for money. My wafu hamburg was hard on the outside but soft inside, and it tasted tender. The sushi sets came with a variety of nigiri (raw fish with rice), tuna, salmon etc, along with half a portion of hot su udon.

    The waitress serving us took the time to refill our mugs and asked for our feedback on food and service, not many restaurants would bother to strike such conversations with customers 🙂

    We had a great time there, definitely going back to have dinner one day. I’d highly recommend everyone to dine at Shin Kushiya, but rmbr to make a reservation and to get a good table.

  2. Hi Karne

    Wow! Am glad you loved that place. I too had quite a few meals there but at a different outlet. I personally have tried their outlets at Far East Square and Vivo City. Both have good services despite huge crowds. Here’s to great service and more good food. 🙂
