Beastro is an izakaya-style establishment. For the uninitiated, izakayas are watering holes in Japan where locals kick back and let loose over no-frills grub and a drink or two. Indeed, what could be a better way to destress than savouring Japanese cuisine as well as craft beers and sake by the scenic reservoir?

They’ve also got appetisers and snacks (from $5.80) including crispy tempura shishamo, grilled mentaiko king prawn and spiced roasted cashew nuts.

Drinks wise, you can wash down all that good nosh with locally-brewed Archipelago beer on tap, and an array of premium Japanese sake and whisky.
