When Shoukouwa re-opened after Circuit Breaker, they switched to fewer seats but 3 seatings per night instead of 2. The service is excellent but food is served faster than before. Their supply has also been affected so there seems to be fewer varieties of fish...from Japan. One major draw is the willingness of the restaurant to let you select a full sized sake bottle but only buy half or even a quarter of it.More

If there is a sushi restaurant which you must try in Singapore, look no further than Shoukouwa. You will experience the traditional Japanese level of service, exquisite and delectable sushi cuisine coupled with top-notch friendly team who takes care of all your needs. We are...delighted to have this opportunity to have the dinner omakase set, Hana, last night and it was indeed an perspective changing experience. Lots of avid food critics share about genuinely good Japanese food only in Japan ... after a visit to Shoukouwa ... you know this is definitely not true. A place not to be missed for travellers, food critics and anybody celebrating a special occasion. We cannot wait to be back ... See you soon.More

Sushi that melts in your mouth. That is what i remember from my meal. Just delicious. Very friendly chefs and serving staff. Small cosy place. A bit expensive but thats what you pay for the high quality seafood that gets flown in each day. Frankly...thats better than some high priced places where you leave wondering what warrants the high prices. All in all excellant and memorable sushi in Singapore where this kind of highest quality raw seafood in the hot tropics is unusual.More

We had the premium Hana Omakase - the starters and cooked dishes were excellent but the sushi dishes didn't impress at all considering that Shoukouwa has 2 Michelin stars. Overall it was still a good meal but at such premium prices we had expected Shoukouwa...to be excellent on ALL accounts with the WOW factor but it didn't meet up..More

Our experience here was absolutely top notch. The staff were friendly and fun, the setting (a small room with 2 other couples) was simple, stylish and encouraged conversation with our hilarious table mates, and the sake list is excellent. But of course the most impressive...thing is the food. We had the longer of the two tasting menus and each dish was more delicate and perfect than the last. I can’t recommend a trip here more highly, their two stars are well deserved.More

I would say business attire, smart casual to cocktail. It's a pretty nice restaurant and very small, so look good.
