May 2015 update: Recent changes in tenants. Local food outlet La Kopi had ceased operations in HillV2 Mall and another outlet Breakfast and Bento has taken its place at unit 02-09. There are two new tenants Burgerup Classix and Dagiya Gogiya (a Korean BBQ restaurant) setting up at units 01-11 and 01-09. See the latest tenant list below).
Residents at the Hillview area finally get a mall of their own. HillV2 is the shopping mall component of a large mixed use complex development by the Far East Organisation. The residential component at the higher levels (a condominium development called “the Hillier”) is still under construction. HillV2 looks like it is almost completed and is now undergoing a soft opening with quite a few outlets already open for business and others in the pipeline. Today we take you on a walk-about to check out the F&B outlets. First impressions are that the new and interesting restaurants will make Hillview residents very happy. The iO Italian Osteria, in particular, looks very beautiful and enticing and has very friendly Italian personnel.
From January 2015, HillV2 operates a shuttle bus service from the mall to Bukit Gombak MRT and back. There are many stops in between to pick up residents in the Hillview and surrounding Bukit Batok areas. See Shuttle Bus Map below.
The shops are located on either on level 1 or 2. There is no basement. Here is the directory of tenants. Here is the HillV2 tenant directory as at 2 May 2015.
Here are the restaurants and stores:
iO Italian Osteria
iO Italian Osteria seems like a very interesting Italian restaurant. We like the decor and the friendliness of the staff when we popped in to take a quick look. It serves a wide range of the usual Italian dishes plus some quick takeaway items like individual slices of pizza and panini (see details in photo below). There is wide selection of items on their main menu and the prices seem reasonable. Italian street food small bites are priced at $9 each. Average pricing of antipasti and pasta items are about $15 and $18 respectively. Meat dishes are from $22 to $28.

Joyden Canton Kitchen
As one of the last F&B tenants at HillV2 to open, Joyden Canton Kitchen now provides Hillview residents with the option of Chinese dining. The restaurant looks spacious. As the last restaurant at the end of the building, it enjoys the benefit of being located in a corner unit. Large floor to ceiling windows show off a great view.
