Iza boasts an ideal atmosphere for a late night catch-up with friends and family over a selection of great beers and Japanese-fusion bites.

Enjoyed the familiar flavours presented with a twist, but one gripe is that our orders were served at erratic intervals, with our plates being cleared too abruptly (before I could even put my fork down...) after we finished each dish.

The Char Siew Sticky Iberico Spare Ribs ($18.90) with pecans and roasted pumpkin (could've been sweeter!!) tasted exactly how I like Asian-style BBQ ribs to be - sweet, smoky and caramelised, with meat that could be pried off the bone.
