Best Sushi in Singapore

Best Sushi in Singapore

Sushi is an art that takes years to perfect. The best sushi is definitely worth paying for, but if you don't have the funds to travel to Japan and get the best sushi, fret not. Featured are places that give you a bang for your buck, depending on how much you are willing to spend ;)

Aoki is arguably most famous for their Mazechirashi, which is perfectly executed. You get a good ratio of sashimi to rice, good texture, and flavours that meld together amazingly. The nigiri sushi is top-notch as well. Go for their lunch sets; they're very affordable considering the incredible quality. Always make reservations as they have limited capacity.

Huge portions aren't usually associated with Japanese culture, but since we're Singaporeans.. Sushi Kuu cleverly serves up mammoth-sized portions of Chirashi. Think extremely fresh assorted sashimi (from Tsukiji Fish Market!) on well-seasoned sushi rice. Their Signature Roll literally tastes like the ocean, with uni, botan ebi, black caviar and tobiko.

Considered to be one of the best sushi restaurants outside Japan, Shinji certainly lives up to its name. Albeit extremely pricey, you get incredibly fresh sushi, and an unparalleled dining experience. Plus, you get to interact with the chefs while enjoying delicately prepared nigiri sushi with very clean flavours. You'll be planning to save for your next visit even before you leave.

The Sushi Bar is known for two things: long queues and salmon aburi rolls. Their aburi rolls are topped with salmon and mentaiko mayo, and lightly seared with a blowtorch. To-die-for! Be sure to order the Chirashi Don, it doesn't get more value-for-money at $24, with such decadently thick cuts of sashimi! Be sure to make reservations.

Sushi Kou serves both nigiri sushi and maki, and do both very well. Their produce is flown in from Tokyo, Kyoto and Hokkaido, so expect fresh, quality sushi. What draws customers back would probably be their affordable prices and great quality. Try their aburi sushi - the pieces of fish are so lightly seared that they just melt in your mouth. DIVINE. They are known for their affordable omakase sets too, if you don't feel like having sushi.

Tatsuya has been around for eternity, and they are renowned for serving excellent sushi. It is evident that the sashimi is super fresh, with the delicate, well-cut slices of sashimi simply melting in your mouth. They do omakase stunningly well, but that comes with a pretty hefty price tag. If you'd still like to enjoy sushi without breaking the bank, go for their bento sets. Your stomach and wallet will thank you.

Customizing your own sushi rolls and Japanese-inspired salads allows you to decide how healthy you'd like to go. With over 80 ingredients to choose from, you'll be spoilt for choice! Neatly rolled up and served in a pop art box so gorgeous that you'll find it hard to discard, this light and healthy alternative will leave you full and satisfied.

Mention "Koh Grill & Sushi Bar" and their Shiok Maki will be brought up, no question. Be prepared to queue during peak hours at this sushi place next to the food court of Wisma. Doused with cheese sauce and topped off with tobiko, their Shiok Maki is so popular that there is even a Shiok Maki 2nd Generation. Their Pidan Maki and Crabby Maki are popular as well.
