10 Asian restaurants in City Hall that prove Singapore is Asia's food capital
1. The Modern Izakaya
Styled after a typical Tokyo izakaya bar – think dark wooden furniture in a comfortable space – tuck into tasty rice bowls, kushiyaki skewers and more amidst the cosy ambiance of The Modern Izakaya. Always a good sign: Many of the servers are Japanese – feel free to ask for recommendations!
Sushi bar by day, Japanese teppanyaki restaurant by night, you’ll dine on only the freshest seafood and prime cuts here. Come dinnertime, be entertained by the chefs’ acrobatic cooking performances! Go all-out on the Wagyu and Lobster Teppanyaki Course, with wagyu steak, lobster, lobster head miso soup, seafood fried rice and more.
At Ikkousha, the special pork chashu is soaked in their secret-recipe sauce to yield a flavourful, succulent topping for your ramen. The creamy, umami broth is made from the essence of various parts of pork bone, mastered only after years of experience. Salivating yet?
The sensational sizzle as you grill the beautifully marbled meats at your own table is as drool-inducing as it gets at this Japanese yakiniku joint. Carnivores, you’re in for a treat- think wagyu beef, kurobuta pork collar and all things meaty.

Fittingly enough for a restaurant located in the heart of the heritage Chijmes, Indochine pays tribute to the gastronomic traditions of Indochina, with authentic cuisine from Vietnam, Laos, Thailand and Cambodia.

Every element of sushi has a world of thought put into it, from the sushi rice cooked in a traditional iron kettle from air-flown Mount Fuji water to the freshest fish sourced from Japan. Pricey, but worth every cent. We promise!
Break from shopping for a delish dinner at Coriander Leaf, which aims to elevate classic Asian comfort food. Go with a light marinated prawn salad with grated coconut, mint and Thai basil, or satisfy serious hunger with the charcoal grilled baby lamb chops.
Beside the traditional Japanese charcoal BBQ and steaks, Renga-Ya has a variety of side dishes plus wines and cocktails on offer. Hosting out-of-towners for a marathon shopping sesh? The party platter – featuring Kagoshima wagyu and Hokkaido beef and lamb chop and Kagoshima pork – can feed your group happily over dinner.
