Best Sushi restaurant in Singapore, period.. Having tried a number of popular sushi restaurant (be it with michelin stars or not), this one takes the crown for Singapore best at this Raffles hotel branch. Get the sushi counter and make advance reservation. And go for lunch for cheaper menu option. You can't go wrong with any menu Food = 5... More

Really good sushi restaurant and great service. We had the Edomae menu which had 15 sushi options with a hefty price tag of S$220. The sea urchin and chutoro were particularly excellent, but the horse mackerel could be better and the temperature of the rice was inconsistent.

If I could give a sushi restaurant 10 stars this would be the place --innovative tasty and as much as you can eat in one meal. Best sushi I have had anywhere on the globe

This was my 2nd visit. 1st time was 2013. Whilst I enjoyed the meal I felt it wasn't the same as the first time.... perhaps different chefs.? The service was a bit cold and I didn't find the chef engaging. Food was good but not as good compared to the likes of hashida or shoukouwa. Pricey for what it is... More

There is not a better Japanese restaurant in Singapore, this place is incredible in terms of food quality, service at the counter watching the chef's prepare and in terms of a lunch time price (apparently it's double in the evening so go for lunch!). Excellent in terms of impressing a client or a girl the delivery of one item at... More

This discrete restaurant on the second floor of the Raffles Hotel is widely considered to serve the best sushi in Singapore and we were not disappointed! We enjoyed the $225 US omakase at a 10 person sushi bar in a private room in the back of the restaurant. It consisted of more than a dozen courses of some cooked, but... More

The food in the restaurant is good but way too pricey for the quality of service they have. For the shrimp sashimi chef showed us dead and old shrimps saying that they are fresh and joking that they are "sleeping". We asked to replace them for fresh ones, however chef just pretended that he changed them, apparently thinking that we... More

We sat at the bar with chef preparing the meal in front of us. They onoy have 3 set price menues and not a la carte. We chose the middle menu ($300 per person) and were not disappointed. We decided to go to town on the budget and ordered a bottle of Champagne to drink with our meal. This was... More

We were there to celebrate our 25 th wedding anniversary. In a small room with 8 seats, chef Ishizawa showed his talents in 2 hours. Everything in the restaurant except water was brought from Japan. Every bit we tasted was so fresh and tasty. Sea urchin from Hokkaido was spectacular, I had not tasted such a good sea urchin even... More
