Omakase Dinner

$80.00 · 122 Reviews

Teppei’s Omakase dinner has been on my wish list for years and I finally had the chance to visit the restaurant recently. Each dish in the 18-course Omakase dinner ($100 per pax) is fresh, delicately crafted and absolutely delicious.

It’s hard to pick a favourite, but here are some dishes that left a lasting impression:
▪️Minced Tuna Maki with Sea Grapes, Pickled Radish, Flying Fish Roe and Salmon Roe
▪️Snow Crab Don
▪️Button Mushroom Tempura stuffed with Fish Paste and Sakura Shrimps
▪️A5 Wagyu Steak with 15-Layer Potato Pave
▪️Sea Bream Sashimi with Orange Dressing
▪️Firefly Squid in Olive Oil
▪️Scallop with Kombu
▪️Crab Porridge with Uni

Although the portion is small, each dish is a burst of freshness, flavours and umami, and the entire course is so satisfying. For an Omakase dinner of such top quality, the price point is very reasonable and value-for-money. The ambience of the single-counter restaurant is cosy and intimate, and the friendly chefs make the effort to introduce each dish as there is no fixed menu.

Out of all the Omakase courses I have tried locally, Teppei is hands down the best Omakase experience I have had so far.

Pictured: foie gras macaron. This was by far the most exciting omakase ever with the chefs literally spoon feeding u several dishes (crab porridge with miso uni, scallop with abalone gut) and turning off all the lights to sing happy birthday midway through dinner (complete with rainbow wigs). Was a fun experience that left me stuffed with amazing food and memories 😊

What an amazing experience! That chawanmushi in the middle is crazily delicious! It has this gooey yummy layer on top of the steam egg. Mmhmm. Highly recommended everyone to visit at least once a lifetime. 2 hours of dining just flew past without knowing. Left with a happy and full tummy.

Do note that everyone is required to put on a face shield provided by them throughout your entire reservation. It did spoil the eating experience as you have to carefully maneuver the spoon or cup under the shield and to your mouth.

Had the luxury of trying this out due to a treat from a very generous friend.

this was the lobster sashimi, scallop & tuna chutoro (if i remember correctly). all three were fresh with a natural sweetness. the lobster was especially succulent. ✨

this was the main course of the dinner omakase ✨ fried rice had a deep smoky flavour with a generous portion of fresh uni & roe.

overall, this was a really amazing & special dining experience ☺️ the ingredients are all really fresh & premium (especially the seafood — fresh from japan!). there are many courses with a good variety of ingredients and cooking styles, all executed with close attention to detail. definitely worth it. 💫

Just when you think this is just another Omakase place, they start surprising you by serving fried grasshoppers (only for the brave!) and feeding the sushi straight into your mouth (like your mother would!). Fun and lighthearted atmosphere as compared to other Omakase places.

This was the main course of the month of November (part of the 17-course meal) - unagi chasuke, which was fresh and very much comfort food. Pretty decent quality for its price, highly recommended for anyone looking to try omakase for the first time and do not wish to burn their pockets too much. They change their menus every so often so it’s always a surprise!
