Dining options: Reservations
Description: Hakumai Sushi & Omakase was established with a focus on offering premium quality Japanese cuisine at value prices. Located in the heart of the CBD (Tanjong Pagar) with a traditional Japanese eatery setting, our all-day bento sets - known for the generous servings of fresh ingredients - have consistently proved to be a winner among diners. For adventurous guests, we highly recommend them to do omakase where the chefs are left to design a menu comprising a series of delights that is bound to excite their fine palates.

We went 4 guys and set on the bar with Gary the chef. Gary has a very unique sense of humor that elevates the meal. We ate for 2 hours and every dish was better than its former.
Every thing is just fresh and testes like havean on a plate. The different courses are very special and unique.
Service is excellent and the atmosphere is absolutely fantastic.
It is the best Japanese food I ate outside of Japan, and I eat a lot of Japanese food.
Don't consider to go, you must eat there at least once. And after you will eat there you will want to come back.

Hakumai serves spectacular dishes with perfect seasoning and freshness. I had appetisers, sashimi, sushi and teapot soup and they are all absolutely amazing. Every mouth of food deserves praises. The head chef is very friendly and gave great recommendations. The service is great. Without a doubt, 5 stars for food and service! I would definitely be back and recommend this awesome place!

What else can I say...the food there is simply AMAZING! For a real taste of Japan with much lower prices than comparable restaurants in Singapore, Hakumai is the place to go!

Their omakase is absolutely delicious, Chef Gary's mantra when serving food to customers are "Quality food, Quantity to fill the stomach and Reasonable prices" and boy did he live up to those words! I feel like I need to elaborate more on the reasonable prices portion. To be precise the price of the Omakase there is not exactly cheap and can be rather steep at close to $200/pax for their premium menu. BUT you have to consider the fact that you will be getting top dollar dishes made with the freshest ingredients sourced from Japan itself! The dishes just kept getting better and better with each subsequent plate and it all culminated in the best nigiri aburi sushi I have ever had the pleasure of trying! Furthermore the omakase menu there is comparable to what you would be getting at other top sushi restaurants such as Aoki but with cheaper prices..The icing on the cake would be the extremely warm and approacable personality of Chef Gary who would make you feel welcome to eat at his establishment

Every dish in the omakase is prepared right in front of you and the Head Chef Gary and his assistant chefs do their best to explain what the dish is and where do they source the ingredients from!
