Once again this place has to be one of the most amazing Japanese restaurants I've ever experienced. The variety and the presentation alone is mouth watering. Accompanied with a selection of sake. what else do you want.

The native menu showcases a unique fish selection and ingredients that are specially flown in from Japan and other global regions. Each dish is artfully plated and presented before it leaves the kitchen. A wide selection of sake offerings alongside a simple wine and champagne list, and seamless service completes the personable gastronomic experience. With a sophisticated urban setting that seats 36 guests for a holistically well rounded and genuine Japanese experience, RIZU is ideal for social gatherings, family dinners, celebrations and entertaining. Highly recommended

Restaurants come and go in Singapore, Rizu is the latest addition to the Duxton Hill scene. It replaces the unexceptional - apart from the cost - Club 39. Rizu is an excellent and cosy replacement with space for about 30 covers and tables for al fresco dining. The place is understated, but perfectly decorated - it could be from a modern Japanese movie set. The staff are accommodating, especially as I had my five-year-old son along as companion for the degustation sitting. It was lots for me, my son, Philip, valiantly ploughed through as much of it as he could. We both loved it overall and this is a great addition to the local scene. The degustation menu was mostly epic. Eight courses of the best that chef could offer. The Japanese, like your English reporter, are massive fans of salmon roe. Having stuffed myself with black caviar - ahem - in the 90s in Russia, I now prefer the little pink eggs. We were presented with an epic set of food that could be considered one of the best Japanese dinners I have ever had in Singapore. I would avoid the ikedukuri – live seafood sashimi - I think there are certain sea creatures that are in need of cooking or just avoiding altogether - lobster is essentially a giant sea bug, bottom feeder and abalone is just a really odd texture cooker or uncooked. I will be sticking to slightly less adventurous tuna and salmon sashimi in future. The Nigiri sushi was much more up our street and the tuna, salmon and mackerel were fabulous. Fois gras is a bold addition to the rolls - and eel with foie gras was something really special. The wagyu and black cod samplers were also fabulous. The rice bowls were eclectic and felt a bit just like a little too much - as its essentially just deconstructed sushi from earlier courses. All in all, it's definitely worth a trial - it's a solid, quiet contemporary place to relax after a hard day's work.

The ingredients at Rizu are with the highest standard of quality - I’m talking about the freshness, juicy, tender meats and dedicate side plates. Don’t forget to try the variation of sakes, Japanese beers, and plum wine cocktail... I promise you will leave with a satisfied heaven mood. Hebe Lin reviewed Rizu Singapore – 5 star on FaceBook
