Where do we even begin? It’s so easy to just throw caution to the wind and decide that your daily diet consists of “sushi, sushi, and more sushi.” Couple that with Singapore’s sprawling list of places offering great sushi, and it makes it even harder to resist.

But if you’re on the hunt for the best sushi around, look no further than this list. Singapore has sushi for almost every kind of eater – buffet, halal, affordable, upscale, what have you – and we’ve compiled the best of the best for you. Here are 15 places to find the best sushi in Singapore – no frills, no fuss.

1. Sakae Sushi

A quick-service, conveyor belt sushi restaurant, Sakae Sushi doesn’t only promise prompt delivery – it’s also known to draw in crowds simply because of the sushi that sits on those conveyor belts. Patrons can enjoy a wide variety of sushi here, from the all-time favorites like their Unagi Nigiri down to special dishes prepared by Sakae’s chefs, like their crunch Chuka Wakame Seasoned Seaweed Gunkan. (It sounds like a mouthful, but trust us – you’ll want a mouthful of it anyway).

  • Address: Victoria Street, Bugis Junction

On the flipside, Ichiban Sushi is where you go when you want to spend time with family and friends while eating out. Ichiban Sushi serves platters both meant for you and for larger groups, and these platters are filled with uniquely created sushi too. Top that off with any of their sweet desserts – like their Matcha Ice Cream with Cornflakes and Red Bean – and you’ve got yourself a happy crowd with happy tummies.

  • Operating hours: 10:00 AM to 11:00 PM
  • Address: 490 Toa Payoh, Lorong, Singapore

5. Tomi Sushi

They say that the sushi dining experience is really more than just eating – it’s also watching how sushi is authentically made. With fresh produce coming from Niigata Japan, Tomi Sushi offers the best of both worlds: it has a sushi bar where you can watch chefs make your sushi on the spot, and it also has tables and private rooms should you prefer to sit down with a group to eat. Tomi Sushi offers sushi set lunches too, and we’d recommend going for the Osusume Lunch for a filling meal.

  • Operating hours: 11:30 AM to 1000 PM
  • Address: 238 Thomson Road, Novena Square, Singapore
  • Price: Lunch sets start at SG $20

6. Hei Sushi

At the helm, the halal conveyor belt sushi trend is Hei Sushi. This comes as no surprise though – Hei’s Cheeseburger Sushi is all killer, no filler. It’s made with fried maki on the bottom, then is topped with cheese and Wagyu beef. Those who love sampling creative takes on sushi will no doubt love it here – just don’t forget to try Hei Sushi’s Dragon Roll Maki (yes, it’s as cool as it sounds).

  • Operating hours: 11:30 AM to 10:00 PM
  • Address: Market Square @ Downtown East E!Avenue
  • Price: Sushi sets start at SG $6

7. Sushi Tei

You know how when you chance upon the scent of sushi, your mouth just starts to water because you’re imagining just how well that sushi you’re smelling will melt in your mouth? It’s like that at Sushi Tei, even after you’ve only entered the restaurant. They offer many types of sushi platters all donning curious names, paying tribute to the genius of the chefs behind this restaurant. Try out their Phoenix Roll, a king prawn sushi roll topped with eel and avocado – you won’t regret it.

We know this sounds a bit out of place, but sometimes your craving for sushi just comes at a time that’s less convenient than ideal (like at the airport, for example). When that happens, Itacho Sushi is here to save the day. This airport restaurant serves high-grade Japanese food with fresh ingredients, all at a price point that’s reasonable too.

Hokkaido Sushi promises an end-to-end unique experience – you don’t only get to eat some of the freshest and gastronomical sushi in your life, you also get the 5-star treatment. Their staff is known for top-notch hospitality, and Hokkaido Sushi Restaurant is not one to be stingy with their portions too. Hokkaido Sushi also boasts of the best wagyu in the area, which is raised in Shiga Prefecture all the way in Japan – try it, it melts in your mouth like butter on a hot summer’s day.

10. Isuramuya

Great halal sushi bites are rare to come by in Singapore, so consider Isuramuya as a blessing – because it is. Isuramuya doubles as a restaurant and a market where you can find Japanese favorites like frozen gyoza, dried seaweed and more. Try their Aburi Salmon Belly and their Ebi Nigiri while dining in, then check out the supermarket so you can make your own sushi at home (because why not?).

11. Hashida Sushi Singapore

Hashida Sushi Singapore is not a fancy, five-star restaurant – but to almost all who come by here, it might as well be. It won’t come as a surprise if you exit Hashida Sushi making a new friend in the chef who serves you: they really engage in conversation with you so you can learn more about Japanese food and culture. Pair that with a scrumptious dish of sushi, and you’ve got yourself an evening to remember.

12. Azmaya Japanese Shabu Shabu Dining

When talking about authentic Shabu Shabu, Azmaya always comes up in conversation. This Japanese restaurant offers wagyu beef imported straight from Japan alongside stellar service and Singapore’s cheapest Dassai 50. They even guarantee that you get the lowest prices on Dassai 50 – a well-loved Japanese alcoholic drink – and you can freely go up to your waiter to tell them if you found it cheaper somewhere else. Talk about awesome customer service!

  • Operating hours:  5:00 PM – 1:00 AM (Mondays to Thursdays), 5:00 PM – 4:00 AM (Fridays to Saturdays); 5:00 PM to 1:00 AM (Sundays)

13. Ginza Sushi Ichi

We admit it’s a little pricey here – but only because it’s worth every dollar since every piece of sushi tastes like a million dollars. This Michelin-Starred Sushi Restaurant offers a superb dining experience, complete with engaging chefs who’d love to share with you their secrets to making great sushi (sushi, by the way, that you’ll sample). It’s an intimate restaurant perfect for anniversaries or other special occasions, and they serve authentic sake as well to their guests.

  • Operating hours: 12:00 PM – 2:30 PM and 6:00 PM – 11:00 PM (Tues – Sat); 12:00 PM – 2:30 PM and 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM (Tues – Sun)
  • Address: 320 Orchard Road, Singapore

14. Maki-San

Maki-san is as quirky as they are sincere about giving you satisfying sushi – their motto is, after all, “instant maki for instant satisfaction.” You can make your own sushi salads and maki, which is definitely just as fun as munching on them. They offer healthier options too – like brown rice instead of white – which, for us, is a lot of plus points in the bag for Maki-San.

  • Operating hours: 11:30 AM – 9:30 PM (11:30 AM – 9:30 PM) 11:30 AM – 10:00 PM (Fridays and Saturdays)
  • Address: White Sands Mall, 1 Pasir Ris Central Street 3 (and 16 other locations)

15. The Ramen Stall

Technically, the Ramen Stall isn’t just a ramen stall – it serves up hefty portions of sushi, sashimi, kushiyaki and various Japanese desserts too, and their operating hours make sure you can satisfy your late-night craving. Pair any of their mouth-watering ramen dishes with any of their sushi (their Torched Beef Sushi rolls right on your tongue). Another plus point: the Ramen Stall is one of the leading Halal-certified Japanese restaurants as well.

  • Operating hours: 5:00 PM – 5:00 AM (Mondays to Fridays), 12:00 PM – 5:00 AM (Saturdays and Sundays)
