Fine Japanese cuisine is known for its hefty price tags, but here are a couple of top-notch restaurants that will satisfy without bursting the bank.

Flock to this lively Izakaya (a casual Japanese drinking bar) for excellent Japanese-inspired snacks and sakes. Accompany house favourites like the miso black cod soup, smoked baby back ribs and slow-cooked octopus with one of their standout specialty cocktails.

Taking up residence on the corner of Blair Street, the chefs at Chotto Matte expertly integrate Japanese techniques with Western influences, serving dishes at wallet-friendly prices. The dimly-lit dining area ensures attention is squarely fixed on the glistening plates of sushi, sashimi and yakitori, and gourmands can order an omakase feast at the private sushi bar.

Where: 54 Blair Road



Celeb chef Hal Yamashita brings us a slew of contemporary Japanese gourmet food executed with precision. Incorporating only the freshest, air-flown ingredients, his signature dishes include the delicate wagyu-wrapped sea urchin topped with caviar ($15 per serving) and wagyu beef sukiyaki, swapping out the raw egg dip with a generous serving of uni. The best deals here are the set lunches – choose either the Sushi Roll Set at $18++ or the Jyu Box Set at $32++.

Where: 8 Sentosa Gateway, Festive Walk Resorts World Sentosa
