    Booked for 10 people on Mothers Day and they did not explain to us until we got there, that we had 30 minutes to order before the kitchen closed. Said 'it's on our website'. Then had to order from 1 ipad in a massive hurry for 10 people and food wasn't special, all tasted the same. Won't be going back or recommending.

    Ichiro Izakaya BarResponded on May 16, 2022

    Hi Yeves, your booking is at 2pm for 8 but then added 2 more people, it was extremely busy day for restaurant on Mother's day, we managing to seat you in time for 10, but then you took 30 minutes to order within your own control at 2:30pm.It's really common for dine in restaurant to have lunch and diner shift, our lunch shift is 11:00to 3pm since we open, none of our staff even ask or push your table or any customers out by 3pm, sad to see such review with our hard work been serviced.

    Noticeable more popular than other restaurant in the shopping complex Friendly staffs Initially was told the 10% discount advertised on Zomato has expired Later spoken to another staff (likely owner), who provided 10% discount if posting on IG

    Ichiro Izakaya BarResponded on April 22, 2022

    Hi, Thanks for the comments, sorry for the confusion, in terms of 10% discount it was advised around 2 years ago, have no have a single customer request for the last couple years, we can not even figure where this information come from, we have stop doing anything with zomato as they charge and ask a lots for advertising and when we stop with Zomato our rating/review on zomato went negative since then around 2 years ago so we decide no to do anything with zomato.

    Amazing authentic food and fast service. We had the takoyaki which was packed with flavour and came out piping hot. The chicken and pork belly skewers had a delicious smoky flavour, wish my stomach could fit more! The chasu ramen was an absolute umami bomb. The broth took me on a journey back to Japan.

    Overall great experience. Service was efficient and ordering on the tablet was very easy. Food-wise: We ordered the okonomiyaki, unagi set, and signature chashu ramen. The okonomiyaki and unagi set was really good. The ramen, however, was a little watered down. Portion was really generous though and overall still tasted okay, but the ramen soup was kinda thin and diluted.

    The food we had was very food. We ordered the amen and the Katsu Don. We were a bit upset because we made a reservation for 2pm and because we were a party of 5 should have been allocated 2 hours to order and eat. Our table wasn’t ready on time and we wanted to take our time ordering as you know, that’s what one normally likes to do when sitting down to enjoy a birthday meal.We were pushed into hurrying to make our order. The food came out in a timely manner, but then once again we felt rushed to eat. I realise they shut down at 2:30 to start preparing for the next opening time which is 5:30. Just not sure why they allow a reservation at 2pm when you are rushed to order and eat and leave within such a small timeframe. I must say though kudos to the lovely lady that was seeing to us checking in she was a gem, l didn’t get her name.
