Just point and eat at Kurama Robatayaki restaurant @ Millenia Walk

Japanese restaurant Kurama Robatayaki at Millenia Walk has a split personality. The front part of the place looks like a standup bar in a rough neighbourhood. Wire fencing and empty bottles are used to make up the shop front. The counters are propped up by empty beer crates. But be brave and venture deeper and the beautiful side of Kurama Robatayaki reveals itself.

Shunjuu Izakaya at Robertson Quay

When the sun goes down, the restaurants and bars at Robertson Quay comes alive. In the daytime, the place is very peaceful and tranquil.

There is quite a variety of cuisines available.  We decided to have lunch at Shunjuu Izakaya located in Riverside View, one of the buildings at Robertson Quay. The higher levels of Riverside View are residential condominium units. The retail and dining action takes place on the lower levels. One word of caution if you are driving – the underground carpark has a sharp bend at the exit. Better to park elsewhere if you are driving anything wider than a Camry.
