There are 3 reasons why people love Japanese buffets so much. One, it is socially acceptable to as much as you want because everyone else is doing the same (ie: piling our plates up with beef or making endless trips back to the sashimi stand). Two, Japanese buffets are great value for money, as you get to eat as much as your stomach can take. Lastly, we get to indulge in an enjoy an endless flow of favorite Japanese dishes without worrying too much about the price.

Buffets nowadays may not be as affordable but everyone deserves a copious amount of Yakiniku, freshly sliced Sashimi, Sukiyaki and Shabu Shabu every once in awhile! So, to make your hunt for the best buffets in Singapore a lot easier, we have shortlisted the top 11 restaurants with Japanese buffets with promotions that will make it worth your while.
