Quick fix of Japanese food
Overall Score 
 
4.5
Looking for somewhere to get a quick fix for some Japanese food? Tori-Q might just be the place for you. From meat of sticks otherwise known as yakitori to bento boxes and set meals, it is suitable for take-outs. In most stores, they have seats for diners who choose not to take away as well.

For yakitori, the sauce complements the meat and it is not a bad combination. However, there is a tendency of meat getting a little charred at the sides. If you are looking for a quick bite or craving for some protein, here is something to look out for! No, unless during lunch hours, the stores do not have ridiculously long queues. As it acts mainly as a take-out place, the waiting time in the queue will not be too long either.

Those looking for a filling meal can go for the bento box or set meal. Each set meal comes with either three to four sticks of yakitori (dependent on price), Japanese rice topped with sauce and roasted seaweed strips as well as shibazuke. Shibazuke is fermented eggplant with herbs and ginger, otherwise known as pickles. It can get a tad salty but it goes well if you eat it with the rice or meat. Overall, it had been satisfactory and the prices are reasonable too. I wouldn't mind going back if I need a quick fix for some Japanese food!

Quality Japanese snack
Overall Score 
 
4.5
Tori Q is an ideal choice for a simple, fuss free and delicious meal or more often than not, a snack. Whenever I come into the vicinity of a Tori Q outlet, I’d feel like buying just 1 or 2 skewers to munch on for fun while I seek a proper dinner elsewhere. My favourite orders are the chicken skewers, together with the chicken skin. Each skewer is priced reasonably (a few cents over $1), thus making it Tori Q a to-go destination for quality and affordable finger food.

Other than just skewers, the bento box option is also available and good for those who wish to have a quick meal.

However, Tori Q doesn’t exactly have an outlet space big enough to contain all of its consumers. I have ever tried consuming a bento box at the Jurong Point outlet. Since there were only 2 of us, it was acceptable but we left quickly after finishing our meal. Seats are always often taken, and it is rather difficult to have a sit down dinner, even with the outlet seats. Perhaps this is their concept to cater to people who are too busy for a proper dinner. All in all, Tori Q is a successful establishment and can satisfy both children and adults alike.

Japanese lunchbox favourite!

Tori-Q lunchbox has been my one of my top favourite since I was in secondary school! It's a pity most Tori-Q stores does not provide much seats for customers to dine-in, but that doesn't deter me from buying a lunchbox and just standing at some free-standing area to consume it.

Priced between $0.70 to $1.50 per stick of meat, Tori-Q is actually something I'd consider as a snack instead of a real meal. Even it's lunchbox itself, albeit very tasty, is not enough to satisfy a hungry stomach easily. For one lunchbox, the cheapest costing about $5.20, it comes with 4 sticks of the meat with rice accompanied by seaweed and some Japanese sauce, which I find awfully delectable. It used to cost only $4.50, so with this price hike, I have cut down on consuming it as often as I would like to. However, if you simply purchase the sticks of meat alone, although they are really tasty, it would easily sum up to about the same price but not fulling.

If you are looking for a real Japanese cuisine, obviously Tori-Q wouldn't be the correct choice. However, if you are looking for a quick Japanese snack, why not give Tori-Q a try?
