Decked in classic blacks and greys, the entrance of Sen-ryo boasts an intimidating, expensive vibe. But worry not; beyond its daunting appearance lies an accessible restaurant, hailed all the way from Tochigi Japan, that serves up a menu of quality yet affordable Japanese delicacies prepared using ingredients imported directly from the Land of the Rising Sun.

The best way to start your meal here at Sen-ryo is with their signature Sushi and Sashimi Sets (from S$18.80). Handcrafted with the spirit of shokunin (artisan) at heart, you can be well-assured that the plate of sushi or sashimi served in front of you will be the freshest you can get since all the seafood is imported twice weekly from the renowned Toyosu Market in Japan.
