When one serving of sashimi just isn't enough to sate your craving, head to this crowd favourite for one of the more affordable Japanese buffets along Havelock Road. Located within the grounds of Hotel Miramar, Ikoi Japanese Restaurant ($38 for both lunch and dinner) is fully booked most of the time, so be sure to make reservations early! Regardless of whether you're here for lunch or dinner, the spread and the price remains the same. The fresh, thick and chunky slices of salmon, yellowtail and swordfish sashimi may be the stars here, but don't neglect other offerings like yakitori, grilled salmon or mackerel, soba, udon and rice bowls. The salmon skin handroll is a must-order, as is their comforting, tummy-warming oden or zosui.
Avg Price: $45 per person
