Arakawa Japanese Gastro & Bar specialises in Osaka style cuisine. The restaurant serves a variety of dishes such as Kaiseki-style Kushikatsu, Sumibiyaki, Donburi and Nabe.
Arakawa Japanese Gastro & Bar offers a hearty spread of items like appetizers, sashimi, sushi, makimono, rolls, maki, udon, donburi, tempura and whole loads more of tantalizing items.
The Unagi Roll is a fun dish to share. The roll filled with cucumber and egg is topped with slices of unagi. It is delicious and heightened all the more by a bit of wasabi and pickled ginger
Arakawa's Yaki Beef Curry Rice was served in a hot pot with baked, melted Cheese topped. There were slivers of sliced Beef well hidden in the Rice but they were not a lot. They could also be more generous with the serving of Japanese Curry, the proportion of Rice to Curry was somewhat inappropriate (all dried up towards the end). While the Japanese Curry flavor was apparent, we thought it was flat and could be monotonous for one to finish entirely. It lacked the refreshing elements like Carrot, Potatoes or perhaps, some Apple in it. Fortunately, we topped the Beef Curry Rice with an additional add on of Hamburg Steak. While the texture might be a little overly dry, we enjoyed the rich meaty flavor and thought it went well with the Japanese Curry Rice.
