Description: Shin Kushiya is one of the first Japanese restaurants to introduce the kushiyaki dining concept in Singapore, where affordable, quality Japanese cuisine is served in an elegant, contemporary setting. The spirit of kushiyaki lies in the skilful preparation and grill of Shin Kushiya’s signature kushiyaki skewers. Bincho Charcoal - a unique type of charcoal which Shin Kushiya imports directly from Japan, is used for grill of our signature Kushiyaki and other char-grilled dishes, offering a crisp smokiness to the grilled food while sealing the natural flavours and juices within. The 180-seater venue at VivoCity offers a contemporary setting for a multi-sensory epicurean journey – from dining with a gorgeous waterfront and Sentosa island views, to experiential kushiyaki grill and sushi bar, it is the perfect venue for an immersive dining experience.

“Good lunch”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Five of us ate a business lunch. The food was pretty good and i enjoyed my yakotiri set lunch and the sushi sashimi was also very good apparently. Nothing remarkable about the food but tasty, quick and good value.

“First time here. Good food!”
Reviewed 1 April 2014

This is my first time trying this at Vivo City after recommendations from several friends. I feel that the decorations were pretty good and this place is very cosy. Helps that the meats were nicely grilled and the quality was very worth for rice price. Wil be visiting again soon-!!

“Nice ambience but charcoal-grilled dishes do add up quickly”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Was at Vivo City recently with a bunch of friends and we decided to have dinner here because we had never tried the food before and it was one of a very small decent-looking restaurants without a major queue. The restaurant prides itself on its signature charcoal-grilled dishes focusing on combinations of meat or fish, occasionally interspersed with vegetables. There are loads to choose from, most costing at least $4, so the bill adds up quickly if you're a big eater. But there are also 5 or 6 combos that are useful for those who can't quite decide what to have. I settled for a seafood combo - the three types of grilled fish was lovely, especially one with grated garlic (I think) on top but the grilled prawn less so. My companions had a bento set that came with a yufu ice cream dessert with a rather overly-sweet/piquant passion fruit sauce that sort of overwhelmed the palate.

Decor-wise, it was relatively spacious and the slightly dim lighting made the ambience enjoyable for a meal-time chat. Service could be improved, however, with a strange practice of waiting staff only serving and clearing meals while orders had to be referred to a specific member of the staff. Otherwise, it was quite an enjoyable evening but watch the bill closely if you're cost-conscious.

“Very Standard”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

The food is very standard and consistent. It is not mouth wateringly delicious - something that you could stand in a queue for an hour for and at the same time it is also not something that would turn you off. You would probably come back if you did not hear of something exceptionally good or a new kid on the block. Price wise very affordable. Staff is very nice.
