Sen-ryo Singapore is a new Japanese restaurant that recently opened on level 3 of the Ion Orchard shopping mall. The first Sen-ryo (千両) Singapore outlet has a unique decor which was what first caught our attention. It is a sushi restaurant whose menu ranges from affordable sushi platters to expensive premium cuts of raw fish.
The new Sen-ryo Singapore Japanese restaurant is located at a quiet corner of Ion level 3, almost directly below the Lego store. It has a mini Japanese rock garden at the entrance. With just the words Sen-ryo 千両 on the wall, we could guess that it is a Japanese restaurant. We found out subsequently that it is a sushi restaurant originating from Japan. It had been introduced successfully to Hong Kong where it has several locations.
We are glad to see a new Japanese restaurant restaurant on the hgher levels of Ion as levels 3 and 4 are dominated by Chinese restaurants and western cafes. Sen-ryo provides a nice change of environment. The part immediately after the entrance to the restaurant is a dimly lit bar (picture above). A sushi counter is situated opposite the bar. This is the best place to sit if you plan to have sushi as the main focus of your meal.
Further inside is the main dining area of Sen-ryo that looks like a cave. It is quite an avant garde decor for a Japanese restaurant. It is nice to have sofa seating but firmer cushions for the sofa may be better.
Sen-ryo Singapore Menu
Sushi items feature prominently in the Sen-ryo Singapore Menu. Here a pictures of some sample pages from the menu. The sushi items range from afforable items to more pricey premium items like otoro or premium otoro. For those who are not too fond of raw fish, there is a fair selection of cooked food items as well. We have a link to the Sen-ryo Singapore online menu at the end of this post.
