Foursquare Tips

  • Diner done up like a little beach shack. Okinawan food is influenced by Chinese and Thai cuisine; their specialty here is definitely the large melting slabs of pork belly braised in soy sauce.
  • Fried chicken was lightly battered, & comes w a dipping sauce. Special!
  • Unique Jap treat! Unlike raw servings like sashimi, Okinawan cuisine is cooked. We enjoyed all recommendations: simmered pork belly (& noodle), fried bitter gourd, fried chicken, simmered eggplant
  • The stewed pork belly is as good as they claim. Also try the awamori (Okinawan liquour) too.
  • Okinawa was my favorite diving spot when I lived in Japan. Have been craving for Okinawan since I moved to New York. It was worth using one of my dinner slots while visiting Singapore to eat here!
  • Last order varies. They close at 11 but last order is usually 10. Arrived at 9.48pm and was told by staff that they've stopped last orders for the day.
  • Their tofu and noodles are particularly good
  • Back here after 2 years and things have certainly changed. Ordered the kimchi pork belly and the portion has shrunk by half, with more kimchi than pork. Same thing with the bittergourd with pork.
  • This place is a gem! Had the bittergourd set. They removed all the pork for me to accommodate my dietary restrictions. The ambience takes me straight to Okinawa. The food is legit!
  • Love Okinawa rice! Nice flavor together wth lovely taste Orion beer. Not bitter like Asahi. Just nice for dinner :)
  • Pretty authentic jap food here. I had the bitter gourd and pork set. Yummy!
  • Love the delicate nutty peanut bean curd that comes with the set meal. Do come early for the Okinawan soup ramen. Sold out when I was there on a weekend at 2ish pm
  • Hamburger steak and fried bittergourd
  • The Japanese beef hamburger steak is a must try!
  • Orion beer. Brewed by d 5th largest beer brewery in Japan, HQ in Urasoe, Okinawa Prefecture. For a true Okinawan experience!
  • This place is a gem, such good food. The cold noodles are awesome as is just about everything else!
  • The hamburg steak set is awesome, its meat is very juicy. Peanut tofu is a must try too.
  • Fried meat miso and peanut tofu are especially excellent. Miso is not salty, is intensely savory and umami. Peanut tofu very refreshing
  • Have the pork belly with ginger
