Shizuku - Japanese Cuisine

Shizuku - Japanese Cuisine

Opened by a Japanese couple in 2013 this pretty much ticks all the boxes – fine sushi and sashimi prepared with attention to both detail and authenticity; a good choice of Japanese meat dishes and soups; and moderate prices. 

Located near the beach in Lapad but slightly set back from the tourist areas in a residential neighbourhood, it’s popular with the locals and also does a brisk take-out trade. Japanese spirits and beers help to stretch out a long and satisfying evening.
