Ordered 1. Pork cutlet curry (SGD 13. 50) Nice, we liked it. 2. Hamburg curry (SGD 13.50). Meat was done with blender, not chopped by hand. Could easily tell from the texture. Not nice. Don't order this. 3. Water. FoC 4. Hot lemon tea (SGD...3.50). It was alright. Overall, it was alright. Will we return? Unfortunately, no. Do we recommend? Again No. There are better options elsewhere.More

I came here for dinner. They have a fairly simple menu: you choose the type of meat / veg, amount of rice and spice level. The standard quantity of rice is more than enough for one person. I took spice level 3 which was okay...for me, but I usually like spicy food. Service was good. Overall a nice place for rice + Japanese curry.More

Went to coco ichibaya and was amazed by the quality of service they provided. The waitress was quick to respond upon eye contact and was very attentive. Food wise the standard is the same as the other branches.

A popular Japanese curry restaurant chain , with this store located at Bugis, Singapore. The restaurant specializes in Japanese curry which comes with a serving of rice along with choice of meat, egg or vegetables. The standard quantity served is large enough. The curry is...authentic Japanese and I have tasted this in 3 countries now - Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, exactly the same. The restaurant ambience is good and comfortable seating. Staff are friendly and pricing is average. Overall, a great curry experience and highly recommended.More

I am fond of spicy food and ALWAYS take lv 4 or 5 curry. The branches in Thailand probably taste better due to the quality of the local ingredients, which is one aspect that Singapore Restaurant is always lagging behind. 🥰🍛 Enclosed is a picture...of my favorite curry, with regular portion of rice, clams, apork cutlet and lv 4 spiciness. 😗🌶🌶🌶🌶More

Coco Ichibanya is by far my favourite Japanese curry stop in Singapore. The food here is great at affordable prices although it may be a little on the high side. However, as compared to the other curry houses counterparts, it is definitely the one with...the most flavourful curry.More

The staff were prompt and friendly, food served was quite satisfying. There were spice level to choose from so it was good to cater to different spice level from different people. There’s also enough sauce to go around with the rice and cutlet. Which was...really satisfying to finish the whole plate. Cutlet was crispy and hot when served. Would recommend this for a bench mark of a good curry cutlet rice.More

Had a good dinner here. Always love ordering the seafood omelette rice or the beef omelette rice. And the outlet does matter.. I prefer the bugis or 313 orchard branches. I find the branch at plaza singapura of lower quality of food. I do wish...that Coco would start to go strawless. I was surprised when I ate at 313 recently and the staff actually refused to take back the (unused) straw! They said “don’t worry it’s free”. Let’s get green Coco!More

ordered the wagyu beef curry rice, the waitress told me I could only either have it rare or fully cooked! I wanted medium but since they couldn't do it I ordered fully cooked. When it came, it looked like it came out of a volcano!...horrible and not flexible!More

Coco Ichibanya offers the best Japanese Curry Rice . I ordered the chicken cutlet rice while my friend ordered the pork cutlet rice . The promo meal was 30% bigger in portion than the regular size . However , the price remained the same at...$12.90 ++ . To get an orange juice or Apple juice , add $1.50. I did not order a drink; however, cold water or warm water could be served . I would say that it was superb value for money . There were more rice without paying extra . The cutlets were extra large too . I have ever dined at Coco Ichibanya at Siam Paragon @ Bangkok , Shibuya @ Tokyo, Westgate and 313 Somerset in Singapore. The food quality remained very consistent. The sweet pickles were a great accompaniment to the curry rice . Monster Curry @ Ion does not come close (at all).More

I went to the newly open branch at Raffles City Tower. Thanks to groupon, i got quite a good deal. I like the curry and the way how they present. it is consider slightly expensive if dine in full pay. You can choose the spiciness...of the curry you want. I went for level 3(just nice for me) and my sister chose level 5(very spicy but she said it is shiok). I had omelette pork chop rice, very good combination with all the stuff i love. The free flow pickles are good to go with curry rice.More
