Decent food but portions are quite small, price is okay with 1-for-1 (Salmon Mentaiko: $16.90, Unagi: $18.90)

Izakaya hikari has a pretty good selection of sashimi and izakaya to choose from to go with glasses of sake. Their sashimi were sweet and fresh while their yakimono were well seasoned and fired. Pretty love their grilled ika too! It has a perfect chewiness to it!

Recommend to make a reservation if you’re heading down! They are pretty crowded!

Really enjoyed the Unagi Don here! There’s also a good selection of Izakaya food - the yakitori was nice and it was fun to try Tako Wasa (octopus sashimi with wasabi). We appreciated the welcome sake as well

Unagi was nice, the salmon was not over cooked with lots of mentaiko

Located on level 3 of Fortune Center, what gives the restaurant away is the many tables outside the actual restaurant and crowd that has congregated at the entrance. Around 7pm, there was already a waiting list so I suggest you make a reservation beforehand. Environment was ok, I was definitely expecting a more Izakaya vibe though. Service was initially not bad but the male server seemed a little hostile especially when we mentioned we were missing some skewers? But oh well people have their days I guess.

We ordered a ton of food: from yakitori, Don, fried food to grilled fish. The reviews seemed to speak very highly (like 4.8 star rating on Google reviews high) of this place, but we thought it was probably worth a 3.5-4 star? A few dishes worth mentioning were the succulent chicken gizzard, salmon mentai and unagi don and shime saba (vinegared mackerel). I think the rest such as skewers were generally slightly above average, but not worth a 4.8.

Our meal came up to $170+ for 3-4 people which was quite pricey in our opinion. Too bad we didn’t get to use the Burpple 1 for 1 deal (we ate on an eve of PH), and I wouldn’t come back without it.

seriously a hidden gem, the food here is really so good! headed over to use a burpple 1-1 and planned to order more food, but everything looked so tempting and we were spoilt for choice, ended up ordering 20 dishes in total oops (half of these were skewers tho but still)

if you’re heading over you HAVE to try:
shime saba!!!! *absolute star of the night* tastes identical to the one served at public izakaya which is like double the price?? never going there again for saba that i’ve found this place

wagyu beef cubes😋😋 quite pricey at $8.90 per stick but i feel its worth it! the kurobuta tontoro was also very well done

absolutely nothing bad to say about this place, service is also impeccable!! will definitely be coming back again soon😊
