8 Best Sushi Omakase Restaurants in Singapore (From $68 - $250/pax)

Japanese omakase has exploded in popularity over the years. Whether its for Kaiseki, Kappo, or sushi omakase, Singaporeans are flocking to Japanese omakase restaurants more than ever before. One of the earliest omakase restaurants to have made its mark must have been Teppei. They still offer their very affordable and popular omakase which will fill you up to the brim. I remember the days where online booking wasn't such a big thing and people had to call for hours once phone reservations were opened to only be disappointed as they were already fully booked for months. 
 
Singaporeans love cheap and good stuff, but a good omakase more often than not comes with a hefty price tag. Big names such as Shinji, Shoukouwa, Oshino, and Sushi Kou offer $350 - $500 omakase and they're often fully booked and the wait for a spot to dine there might take months. If you're looking for great omakase options that are more wallet-friendly or a mid-range omakase treat for a special occasion, here are 8 restaurants you should consider!

Melbourne is the cultural capital of Australia, and it has also been voted the most liveable city for many years running. With charming laneways studded with quaint outfits, a rich coffee culture, and a captivating food scene, Melbourne has something new or hidden every corner you turn. Having stayed here for more than 8 months, I've come to love this city more than my very own country. Dining out is definitely an expensive affair in Australia, so make sure you're spending your money at places that are worth it! 
 
Here's a list of my favourite restaurants, which are also, obviously, the best in my book.

(RELOCATED)Hashida Sushi Singapore - An Unforgettable Omakase Experience

My omakase experiences have gotten, progressively, more expensive. While I was deliberating on where I should bring my best friend for a celebratory omakase meal, I consulted Rubbish Eat Rubbish Grow on his thoughts on the biggest names in the Japanese cuisine scene in Singapore. Here were my options : Shinji, Shoukouwa, Hashida, Tatsuya, Jiro. Nat very patiently went through every option with me, and it was a no-brainer. Hashida, it was. I made a reservation online for lunch on a weekday and made my way to Mandarin Gallery with a racing heart.

Hashida Sushi was first opened in Tokyo, in 1966, by Master Sushi Chef Tokio Hashida. His son, Kenjiro Hashida, is at the helm of Hashida Sushi Singapore.
