Top 15 Best Omakase Spots in Singapore

Top 15 Best Omakase Spots in Singapore

Need inspiration for how you’re gonna spoil yourself? Look no further because Omakase is always the right answer.

In the Omakase niche, many Japanese food masters have taken on the challenge to set up their businesses on the sunny island of Singapore. For any sushi and sashimi lover, ‘Omakase’ is pretty much a household term. ‘Omakase’ simply translates to “i leave it up to you’ and it is typically conveyed to the server or chef in any traditional restaurant. In this article, we share about the best Omakase restaurants that have left many with their bellies filled and minds blown.

As Omakase is considered to be refined and widely favoured, do expect to only get a seat via reservation at each of the restaurants mentioned below.

1. Hachi Restaurant

Best Omakase Singapore
Kenny Choo

Nestled in a corner of the National Gallery in Singapore, it could be easy to miss the entrance of this Omakase restaurant. Don’t be fooled by its unassuming exterior though as this place has been known and trusted to serve remarkably fresh ingredients for years. Self-proclaimed the “pioneers of Omakase dining concept in SIngapore”, Hachi offers specially curated menus from day to night.

The basic Omakase Experience starts at $158++ for lunch and $318++ for dinner, with 7 to 9 unique dishes to be served. Even if you aren’t a seafood lover, do not fear of missing out as the Wagyu Omakase is definitely worth a try with the various cuts priced from $178++ per pax. The basic Omakase set we opted for had a perfect finish – cold soba in a sweet broth to cleanse your palette.

Prepare to be wowed by the thoroughly crafted flow of hot and cold dishes throughout the meal and perhaps pair it with Hachi’s prized bottles of Sake flown in from Japan?

2. Sushi Koike

Maybe it’s a common trait among brilliant Omakase hunts to have tiny wooden entrances because our next recommendation can be found in a small space, among many bars and izakayas.

At Sushi Koike, Edomae Sushi, a style of sushi using a rich assortment of fresh seafood from the Edo period (1603-1868) in Tokyo is prepared for day and evening crowds. Chef Koike, the Master Chef of the restaurant, was raised in the Tsukiji Fish Market of Tokyo and picked up the art of serving quality sushi cuisine at a young age.

Best Omakase Singapore

Only Omakase is served at Koike, with prices starting at $168 ++ for lunch and $280 ++ for dinner at the counter. For us, the star of the night was the sashimi platter above. If you prefer a more intimate setting with your loved one(s), the Omakase experience in the private rooms are priced lower from $250 ++. However, if you decide to dine at the counter, don’t be shy to engage in conversation with the chefs as they will have so much to tell you about the delicacies placed in front of you! An Omakase experience is only complete with delicious courses and lighthearted conversations!

Address: 36 Circular Road, Singapore 049392


Opening Hours: Tuesday to Saturday 12:00pm to 3:00pm / Monday to Saturday 6.30pm to 11:00pm, closed on Sunday

3. Torio

Torio is the Japanese word for trio. This simple expression encapsulates the commitment, contribution and camaraderie of its founding partners. They aspire for their customers to taste the sincerity and power of their friendship through the food prepared. Torio’s menu is not just limited to the classic seafood-focused Omakase, they take pride in the Teppanyaki Omakase which has been further split into lunch and dinner which allows diners to choose their preferred choice of meat in the meal.

Torio has been acknowledged as Travelers’ Choice in 2021, making them the top 10% of restaurants worldwide. Dare I say it, the menu with an extension list of courses are less pricey than other longstanding Japanese restaurants, but not at the cost of quality and attention to detail. “Nagomi”, the 10-course set, is priced at $80 ++ and is followed by larger course meals that can be priced as much as $288++. For the Teppanyaki courses, the signature Chef’s Omakase is priced at $168++.

If you want to give Omakase a go without burning your wallet, why not give Torio a shot? However, before placing a reservation, do note that the restaurant may impose a minimum spending for Counter Seats and Private Rooms from time to time, depending on its availability. It would be advisable to make a reservation super early to be safe!

Address: 50 Tiong Bahru Road, #01-01 Link Hotel, Singapore 168733

4. Sushi Mitsuya

Best Omakase Singapore
Sushi Mitsuya

A personal favourite of mine, Sushi Mitsuya is a niche Japanese Sushi restaurant focused on providing an exclusive and bespoke dining experience. The exquisite execution of every dish throughout the course of the meal is overseen by the Head Chef, Ryosuke Harada. Harada san began his foray into the art of sushi-making at the age of 18 and further spent 8 years honing his skills in Tokyo before venturing to Hong Kong, where he worked in Sushi HIRO. 

The interior of the restaurant closely resembles a Japanese tea house with its wooden panels and soft lighting along the walls. Just let yourself relax in the calm atmosphere as you are served with rounds of the freshest and prettiest creations affectionately known to be “harada style”. Your dining experience will feel even more intimate if you’ve decided to celebrate a birthday at Sushi Mitsuya. Just leave a note that it’s a special someone’s birthday and the chefs will devote extra time into crafting a mini “sushi cake” for you, or your loved one! You will not leave here disappointed, trust me on this.

Sushi Mitsuya has yet to set up a booking portal so it is advisable to call in or drop them an email to make a reservation.

Address: 60 Tras St, #01-01, Singapore 078999


Opening Hours: 12:00pm to 2:00pm / 6:30pm to 10:00pm, closed on Sunday

5. Sushi Murasaki

Another Omakase place that won’t break the bank is Sushi Murasaki in Millenia Walk. Sushi Murasaki’s seasonal fish comes flown in straight from Japan’s famous Toyosu Fish Market, a bustling marketplace where store owners have been around for years. Main chefs Max Lai and Raymond Tan treat their food with utmost sincerity and their customers with great hospitality. With 8 years in the local Japanese Culinary scene, Sushi Murasaki has made a name for itself and is one of the top Sushi Omakase places that is affordable and cater to a larger audience in Singapore.

7. Sushi Jin

Best Omakase Singapore

Cheap, aesthetic, DELICIOUS – Sushi Jin ticks off all the boxes Omakase enthusiasts dream of when looking for their next hunt. Sushi Jin, a concept by the Les Amis Group, has a very cosy interior and you’ll feel like a customer at a private small group dining experience because the restaurant houses a single sushi bar as well as a small room for up to 5 pax.

We were there for lunch and opted for the highest tier Omakase lunch set (priced at $138 ++) which includes an appetiser, 12-piece assorted sushi, soup and dessert. Our favourite dish by far was this sashimi platter which had the freshest and thickest slices of assorted fish. It even came with caviar garnish which added a bit more boujee-ness to our lunch. The menu was pretty extensive and even included set lunch options priced from $38 to $68 ++.

8. Teppei Japanese Restaurant

Steered by Chef Teppei Yamashita, Teppei Japanese Restaurant serves ala carte sushi, donburi and tempura by day, while exclusively serving a 17-course Omakase dinner by night. This Omakase dinner set is super well known, evident from its perpetually long waiting list. Before you decide to add your name to the list, here are some dishes that stood out for us throughout the dinner. Most of the dishes are small bites but that does not mean we weren’t full by the 10th dish! Our top picks were the sea bream sashimi with a refreshing orange sauce and snow crab filled with rice, crab meat and ikura.

The diner-styled restaurant may seem very packed, but it only added plus points to the comfortable and casual ambience we had our enjoyable meal in!

12. Sushi Masaaki

Best Omakase Singapore
Bibik Gourmand

This Omakase restaurant is unlike any others we’ve seen. From the moment of entering the tall glass doors, we are greeted by pink flamingo walls surrounding a huge marble reception. The tropical concept of the entrance seems to contrast the calm, woody aura exude by the sushi counter made from 250 year old Hinoki wood.

The sophisticated ambience, warm lighting and exquisiteness of the food served ties together so well with Chef Masaaki’s longstanding appreciation for fish. Having grown up by the Kamo River in Kyoto and years of nurturing his fishing hobby, it seemed destined that Chef Masaaki would one day grow up to be a Sushi Chef.

Prepared from ingredients freshly flown in from Toyosu Market, the lunch Omakase is priced from $220 ++ while the dinner Omakase is priced from $280 ++. There are four types of Omakase to decide from but you can always just go back for a second (or third trip) for your tastebuds to go wild!
