Review: Sumiya Charcoal Grill Izakaya (Orchard Central)

It’s our first visit to Sumiya. Unlike some of the restaurants at Orchard Central which are pretty hard to locate, Sumiya is located at the Roof Garden of Orchard Central. Just take a lift to 11th floor and one flight of escalators you’ll be there.



I reached around noon and it’s still pretty empty then. Managed to secure a table without any prior reservations.


Love these little details.

Hooks to hang our bags at the side of the table.

My lunch dates and I came specially to try out their lunch deals.

The lunch set selection, basically just a page for you to choose.

Though the selection is not very wide, guess it’s pretty sufficient for lunch.

All looks pretty yummy to me. ??

My Salmon, Ikura and Ebikko Don.

For the rice, we have a choice of warm steamed white rice or sushi rice.

All of us opted for the latter since it’s more flavourful.?

Check out the generous amount of ebikko!
My sis opted for the Bara Chirashi Don! $18.80


Check out the feature of today’s lunch – Sumiya King Kaisen Don!

Limited to 5 servings daily and they don’t accept any pre-order.

3 sets were already taken up when we were placing our order.


The sashimi variety will differ depending on what ingredients they have on the day.

This set is $58 (Original price $98, I highly suspected that this could be just another marketing gimmicks of theirs ?) and I think it’s pretty value for money. It even includes Uni.


Pretty decent servings of Uni ??


Mochi, which was part of the set. It’s not bad but we didn’t get to finish it as we were all experiencing some food coma after whacking all those sushi rice!
