At The Modern Izakaya, we bring a slice of Tokyo's vibrant izakaya culture to the heart of Singapore.

Located at 30 Victoria Street within the historic CHIJMES complex, our casual Japanese dining destination is your go-to for a laid-back gathering with friends or a solo retreat into the world of Japanese flavors.

Our ethos is simple: offer a chilled-out space where the drinks are cold, the food is hot, and the company is just right. Sip on a glass of exquisite Sake Kitagawa Tomio Gin No Tsukasa Junmai Daiginjo or your favorite beer, as you unwind in our atmospheric setting that balances the comfort of tradition with a touch of modernity.

Inspired by the communal warmth of Tokyo's izakaya bars, we've created a cozy ambiance that makes you feel at home instantly. With a versatile menu that includes savory yakitori, tender grilled squid, fresh sushi, and more, each dish is a celebration of authentic Japanese cuisine, designed to complement our extensive selection of sake and beer.

Though our online presence may be as minimalistic as our decor, it's the tangible experiences we offer that define us. Our intimate indoor space is accented with sturdy dark wooden furniture, and for those who prefer the breezy alfresco setting, our high bar tables and stools are perfect for people watching and enjoying the natural lighting and greenery during the day, or the tranquil neon blue glow at night. Peek into our glass-walled kitchen and watch our chefs skillfully prepare dishes to perfection.

Professionalism and courtesy are the hallmarks of our service. Our team, which includes Japanese servers, is knowledgeable and eager to recommend the perfect pairing for your meal. We take pride in the consistent quality of our Japanese tapas, kushiyaki, and yakitori skewers, each prepared and grilled only upon your order to ensure the freshest dining experience.

At The Modern Izakaya, we are about creating moments. Whether you're indulging in a solo visit or convening with friends, expect to splurge on a culinary adventure that's worth every penny. With a rating that speaks to our ambiance and quality, we invite you to join us for an experience that is both casual and memorable, with an average spend of SGD $52 per person.
